Question about Crosley Cr6001a Turntable
After a few days of use, the left speaker quit functioning. The sound from the left speaker is barely audible. This is quite frustrating because with stereo sound, this means that oftentimes I cannot hear one or more of the instruments in the song. If there are any simple solutions, I'd prefer to fix this myself. However if I'm unable to perform the maintenance myself I'll have to just take it in for repair or exchange
I understand how frustrating this problem can be. The problem can be the result of several different things. Two of them are 1) blown speaker and, 2) blown left amplifier output.
Try listening with stereo headphones. If you can hear both channels clearly, the amplifier is most likely functioning correctly. This is desirable as amp repairs would probably be more costly than a driver (speaker) replacement. Make sure you vary the balance controls while checking for output on both L and R speakers. If the sound is intermittent, the volume or balance control may have dirt built up and may return to working properly by liberally spraying electrical contact cleaner around the stem (knob removed) with the unit unplugged. Use the extension tube to pinpoint the output along the stem. Be careful to keep from over-spraying as it may damage plastic and wood cabinetry. After spraying, rotate the knob fully back and forth several times and then plug back in and try for sound again.
If you can't restore the volume to the left speaker, you may have a blown speaker. This usually happens as a result of excessive volume which leads to distorted sound. If played this way long enough, damage to the speaker is unavoidable.
The speaker can not be fixed - but may be replaced. Replacing the speaker is something most people with conventional hand tools can do - with the unit unplugged. Finding the information on the speaker may prove to require some digging however. You'll need to know the size, wattage rating, impedance value in ohms, and frequency response. It would be best to obtain the exact replacement part if possible.
Other than this, you'll probably need to have it serviced professionally. Good luck!

Check all conections to the turntable, also I think you should buy a new cartridge as a matter of course. I rather suspect it's (the cartridge) either **** or gone!

Same thing just happened to a friend of mine, he brought it to me. The transformer primary is Open Circuit, so hopefully that's all that has failed and it didn't do damage to the electronics. The problem I have now is finding out the ratings of the transformer so I can replace it with a 240V one (I'm in Austalia). The markings on the transformer don't come up with anything in google. Any idea what secondary voltage / VA rating it is?
