SOURCE: Crosley Radio CR246 CD door will not open

Try checking these:

- the CD door motor rubber drive belt (if there is one), it could be either loosened or broken, if so, it needs to be replaced

- the door open/closed sensor switches (contacts), they could be oxydized or damaged, they are located somewhere under the CD tray, possibly at the front end of the unit (depends on brand and model), you need to clean these with some fine sandpaper

It could be something else like the door motor driver IC, the power supply for the motor, a bad capacitor in the motor drive section, a loose connection or a broken wire somewhere, but hopefully, it's just a bad rubber belt or a dirty contact.

SOURCE: I have a Crosley CR248 cd record player/recorder stopped working

If nothing lights up and the whole unit is dead, you may have a blown fuse, a bad power supply, or an electrical outlet that is not giving you power. (Don't laugh, it has happened to all of us... the "broken" thing wasn't plugged in or the outlet it was plugged into was off for some reason). Anyway, if the thing lights up and everything else in the system works except the turntable going 'round, perhaps there is a slipped or broken belt. Most late-model Crosley turntables have been belt drive, so the first thing to look at if everything else works is to press the buttons to start the record playing and then turn the record gently around with your finger on the label, making the whole platter turn clockwise when looking down at the record. Mechanically, the tonearm should cue up and pivot in to the record and it should gently drop onto the record. If you cue the tonearm up and move it in to the end of the last song on the LP and let it back down and turn the record again, it should follow the record's grooves into the center of the record and then lift and "park" the tonearm after everything is done. During the time the needle is on the record and you are turning the record, you should hear the record playing (it will sound bad, because you won't be turning at the right speed!), but that should indicate that the turntable is working mechanically and electrically.
If everything works like I mentioned except the record player won't make the record turn, the next step is to see why it isn't turning. you'll need to lift the plastic platter off the turntable. Most of these have a snap ring (usually a simple spring wire ring that doesn't go all the way around the center spindle. It may have an E-ring instead. Use a small screwdriver to pop this off and be sure to catch it, it might try to pop off the turntable and fly across the room! Lift the platter and you'll probably find a broken belt underneath. You'll have to replace that to make the records spin again. The hardest part is to locate a replacement belt! If nobody near you stocks belts (lol) then online outfits like can be a source. After you replace the belt and put the platter back on the player, remember to replace the snap ring. You might want to lubricate the platter's bearing with an appropriate lubricant, but that is your call as to whether that will be necessary. This is likely a styrene or simple thermoplastic plastic bearing, so be real careful what you use for a lubricant! if you're not sure, don't use anything! Like I said, it's not a difficult repair, it's just hard to find the part these days! Good Luck!

SOURCE: HELP! Christmas gift not working!! Crosley CD

I would suggest you contact the person who gave the Christmas gift, because this is a item that cannot be fixed easily, from the description you have a function selector problem which is controlled by an IC.

SOURCE: Why does my crosley turntable/cassette player/cd

I would suspect that you have a bad record laser in the CD recorder assembly, this is common, and this is usually what it is. To this end you would need to replace this unit's laser assembly, it will/may still play a CD OK, but will not write to the CD, as they are two separate lasers. So if you wish to try to repair you will need to contact Crosley and ask them what to do, ask for a referral to an authorised service center or perhaps even return it to them? In any event ONLY ask for a "Quote" first and see how much it may cost before proceeding.

Very difficult to speculate what it could be with the info provided. You may need to open it up to gain access to the circuitry inside, to do some component level inspection and testing.

Phono input only plays one speaker and receiver shuts down after playing record for a few minutes

are you using a phonograph with a built-in preamp? If so, then you need to hook it up to a different input. Phono input is only for non-amplifier phonographs, otherwise you will over-drive the amp.

I just purchaseday crosley model #2405c and when you put a cd in and push play button it does not work

You can find a manual here
which may or may not help with your problem.
However you state that you have "just purchased" the machine. If this is so and particularly if the machine is new then you should take it back to the vendor for him to replace with a working unit, because clearly the one you have is "not of Merchantable Quality".
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
