If your unit is a different model, please post a comment with that model number. I wish that I had better news for you.
Cindy Wells (on those shelf systems that can burn a CD, place a blank CD-R or CD-RW (if supported) in the disc tray. Use the function button to set the recording source (Phono with the Croseley units). Place the tape to record in the tape deck and press play reach a point a bit before the desired point to start the recording. (Some also will record from the radio, turntable, or other device. Again start the source playing.) Then press CD Record. Press Stop when you want the recording to stop or when one side of the tape/LP is finished. (Some have a Split Track button if you want to identify every track. Press this during the silent period between songs.) Otherwise, you will get one track per side with tapes/LPs.)
OK a blast from the past. There is a switch that is in the base which senses that the cover is closed and this unlocks the arm and disk motor can rotate. The reason that the disk rotates when the cover is up is because this allows the disk to spin up to speed before the arm comes down. Once the cover comes down the switch unlocks the arm and the arm then moves this switch also can stop the disk if the arm does not unlock.
Generally speaking, if a device doesn't have an input specifically marked "PHONO" it does not have the requisite PHONO preamp for an old-school turntable.
Aiwa plays a word-game on this device and labels an input "Phono" while specifying on page 20 of the manual that you should use a turntable with a built-in EQ Amplifier. In other words, the input should have been labeled a second "AUX IN' as it will accept any sound device that has a Line Level output, not just Phono.
So yes, you need a self-PRE-amplified TT with this product.
If you're using an old-school turntable that doesn't contain a phono preamp that will happen.
A traditional turntable requires a Phono preamp inline with it to PRE amplify and frequency-balance the minute signal produced by it's cartridge for later amplification by a power amp. Most stereo receivers and preamps have Phono connections and internal preamplification strictly for that purpose.
Recent AV Receivers generally do not.
The result would be very low, tinny sound.
If so, you need to get an external Phono Preamplifier.
Sometimes you have to unplug it for about 30 seconds, then when you plug it in press the power on button. If there is still no sound, check the speaker connections on the back they sometimes come loose.
To reset the system to "install" mode press & hold the "play/pause" button in the center of the unit until "AUTO INSTALL- PRESS PLAY" is displayed.
If this doesn't work then the unit may be too hot! I see on the philips web site that this model has a temperature sensor & will shut itself off. I am in Spain too & the temperature inside right now is 30C!!
