There are several possiable answers to this. One the cartridge might have died. 2 the pre-amp might have died (in your amp). 3 a bad connection.

SOURCE: This is a question for my daughter who lives in

I have no experience of Crosley turntables, however, stylus arm skating across the record surface on any turntable is normally due to the counter balance weight being incorrectly adjusted. In order to track across a record properly, the stylus must press down on to the record very lightly. If there is too little pressure, skating is what tends to happen. Too much pressure can cause distortion of the sound and excessive wear of the record.

At the pivoting end of the stylus arm, there should be a counter balence weight. This is normally adjustable (but not always - depends on quality and features of the particular turntable), and is used to set the pressure the stylus applies to the record surface, measured in grammes. The manual that came with it should tell you how to adjust it, but for most turntables stylus pressure is between 1 to 3 grammes.

If you dont have the manual, have a good look at the pivoting end of the stylus arm to see if soemthing is obviously wrong, or if not whether there is something with numbers on it that can be turned or slid. This is likley to be the counter weight. Try adjusting it.
Within reason, the stylus weight isnt critical so a "trial and error" approach wont do any harm.

How do I get the power to work?


Where do you connect the power if mains fed 220volt or 110volt if so try a test lamp where you plug the power in. Some periferal sets only works as a set and the power of the turntable is not mains but a lower D.C. voltage normally 12 volts. As you got another unit I suspect the supply. Ask the company that you purchased it from (If the power is something else than your mains supply) to just check your amplifier. To try to imagine the problem without the units is difficult to give help but this is all that it can be

Why is my brand new crosley turntable keepsake hunter skipping tracks?


The turntable may not be level. Also, the stylus could be damaged or defective. The stylus pressure may not have been set correctly in production or may have been affected by shipping.
