Tone Arm jumps ahead 1/4-inch when starting to play record

Good Morning,

Re: CR2406A / Croslely CD Recorder

When starting to play a standard size 33 1/3 record, I use the cue lever to raise the tone arm off its rest, and move the tone arm over to lower it to the point I want the record to start (the beginning of the record). Each time, the tone arm jumps ahead 1/4-inch. The Tone Arm will not stay and play from the beginning of the record. Is there an adjustment to be made to remedy this?

Thank you for your time,
Julia Williams

You need to open the unit up and unplug your interconnect ribbon cables one at a time and check it is connected properly . Faulty ribbon cable can cause this problem .

Check the arm release/elevetion mechanics, at the base of the arm, the arm elevator has probably a mechanical fault.

Often you need to take apart the turntable to fix this, in that case I suggest contacting service.

My turntable a Crosley CR49 is about 14 years old. It plays just fine, but have to manually reset, clicking the tone arm after every record I play, either 45s or 33 1/3. How Can I fix this?


You will need to get to the underside of the turntable. There you should find that the arm when it gets to the centre of the record it will push on a switch. This switch might be out of position or just get stuck by grease or dirt. Correcting it should solve the problem.

How can I stop the tone arm from returning too early on smaller records?


The adjustment for auto return position is normally at the tone arm base on the left side under a rubber grommet. Use a flat blade screw driver to move adjustment screw, then test. Keep fine tuning until arm lifts at desired position. Cheers John. Stylus City NZ

Tone arm keeps returning to rest on Crosley CR249


Hi, Try this. with it turned off. Lift tone arm across a record to the run out groove and set it down. Now power up and hopefully it will reset itself. In all honesty I would sell it and get a decent old school player. John. Styluscity.com

Cr79 tone arm stops too early


I have a 1956 stereophonic Motorola record player, and it turns off right when I press "on" I noticed that the record speed was 33 1/3 I used 33. Does this make a difference??

Tone arm will not move over on self-start unless


Hi, they are not an auto start model turntable. To start lift tone arm off rest and move into position at start of record. It will automatically lift and return to rest as well as shut off at end of record. cheers john ,, Styluscity.com

Tone arm moves to the middle rather than the beginning


There is 33and 45. that's the size of the record.There should be a level to change from one to the other.

My console can only play 45 rpm records


There should be a record size selector switch somewhere. It will move the arm to the positions for 12inch 7inch and 10inch records. It must be set to 7inch or 10 at the moment. For 33 it should be on '12' and for 45 on '7'.

Crosley CR2406A will not record CDs properly.


I had this problem when recording CD-Rs. I switched to CD-RWs and didn't have the problem again.

Tone arm retracts before recording is complete (CR-245)


actual old units (not sure about modern nostalgics) sometimes had a lever that said 7 or 12 inches for 45's or 33's this would tell the mechanism when to set down the arm. If your unit does not have something like this then it sounds like an internal failure that would require it being opened by a tech or sent in for warranty repair.
