Question about Crosley CR248 Turntable

1 Answer

BSR turntable arm slides across record

Is this a common problem either with the cartridge/needle or is it directly related to something else which is simple to check. Everything works but the arm just slides across the record each time, I even thought that maybe adding a washer to the end of the arm might work but no good...please help, thank you.

There can be a number of reasons for this.
Have you checked that the stylus tip has not broken off? this is a common cause and will require a new stylus.

The needle and arm just slide all the way to the end of the record. What can I do? Thanks!!


The needle (stylus) has fallen off the end of the cantilever that contacts the record surface. U need a new stylus assembly.

OR, it is bent at an extreme angle and slides across the record surface.

The tone arm drops onto the record, but then continues moving across the record without playing the record. Anyone know what's going on?


Does the needle actually contact the record? If not, you may be missing a "pad" under the record, or you may be simply missing the needle that needs to be there to follow the grooves.

Needle slides across record


It could be 3 different things. The first is check the needle make sure its not dirty. the second is make sure the weight is set correctly. And the third is did you take the tone arm off the protective part that holds the tone arm in place when moving or travelling .

The arm with the needle slides across the LP record - doesn't pick up sound


This is often a problem when you are using a 78 needle on a 45 or 33 record. Some needles can be flipped, so check to see if yours is able to flip between the 78 and 33 setting. If not, you may simply need a new one.

2 things, make sure the back arm weight is adjusted correctly,, allowing enough pressure to be placed on the record, if that doesn't help, you have a chip in the needle thats not visible to the naked eye,

Hello when , I put the needle on the record it doesn't play and slides across


Two causes the stylus is worn, or there is not enough pressure being applied to the stylus. Most cartridges track at 2-3 grams. The weight at the end of the arm should be set around this figure and slowly moved higher till it tracks without sliding and without creating too much rumble in the sound. If you have to take the weight up high, then that's a good sign the stylus has gone. Or that the arm itself has a fault on it somewhere (when tried with a new stylus installed).

Turntable arm slides across record, Am. D.J.-1500


See what type of cartridge is installed in the arm. Manufacturers use common cartridges in turntables, such as Stanton, Shure etc. Detach the head shell from the arm (it usually slips right off via a locking ring and four-pin mini plug) Look for the manufacturer and model number on the cartridge. No need to remove it from the head shell. On most modern cartridges, the stylus (as they are called, rather than the needle) simply slips off and on. No need to remove the entire cartridge (via screws) and re-align it. In fact, many DJs bring a set spare cartridges and styli on a gig, already mounted in head shells, and simply interchange them as needed. When you have the make and model of the cartridge, go to Radio Shack or use their website to order a new one...or  two. Or go to Google and enter "phono stylus" as your search term. You will find reasonably priced styli for nearly every cartridge imaginable. I operate 50 year-old turntables and am able to find replacement cartridges and styli on line. Ebay also has a number of listings, by make and model of the cartridge. When the new stylus arrives, observe how easily the old one comes out of the cartridge- usually pull and slide - and slide the new one in. Re-insert the head shell on the arm, tighten the locking ring, and you're good to spin!

Needle slides across the record on Crosley 5 in 1 player


you have unscrewed the suspension screw?

also check the needle for dirt and dust... try blue tacking a 5p coin to the top on the needle to give it a little more weight, if the needle stays in place then the arm balance if off, and unless there is a mechanism to adjust that on this turntable then i guess its a return!

Fisher price 1978 record player


The Fisher Price record player has a device that prevented kids from pressing the needle down and sctratching the record. If you look at the cartridge where the needle is inserted, you will see that it floats up and down. The problem is that this keeps the needle from having enough pressure to play the record. Pennies just make the cartridge recede further into the arm. If you wedge something above the cartridge, the needle won't float and the it will play your records. I've had four of these and none of them worked until I figured this out.
