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

We received a Crosley CR-245 for Christmas. When recording, the tone arm retracts and cuts off part of the song. The problem is intermittent, not specified to either 45's, 78's or 33 1/3's. Can anyone help us with this problem?

The nickel on the tone arm is the best solution that I have found. I taped a nickel onto the head of the tone arm about 1/4 inch back from the point of the stylus and then taped 3 quarters near the fulcrum to slightly counterweight the nickel's effect. This fixed one of the disc skiing that my Crosley had when I first got it. A new stylus is in the mail and I will try the new needle without the nickel and quarters to see if the original needle was just bad.

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.

Crosley turn table is not spinning. Tried replacing belt and moving cue lever to right then left. Think it might be the arm or cue lever. Does anyone have an idea what the problem is or a solution?


Since it is new, you should probably return for refund or exchange.
My guess would be it is the micro switch controlled by the arm.
Make sure the power is turned on and the unit's function selection is set on PHONO and then gently move the tone arm to the right until you hear a "click". Remove any cassettes that might be in the cassette player. Lift the tone arm and carry it over to the beginning of the record.

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

How do you shift to play records. When I turn to phono on dial it turns the unit off. I have a radio cd player with CR24 turntable


Move the tone arm off the rest on to the record and it will start to spin. There is a switch that turns the player off when the tone arm is on the rest.

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??

My brandnew Songwriter is not playing records properly. When a quarter is placed on the tone arm, it plays fine. Is there an adjustment I can make??? Marilyn

I didn't see the tone arm balance adjustment in the user manual, however that is what needs to be done. At the rear of item #39, on page 10, is there a dial with numbers from 0 to 4 or 5? If so, set the dial to "0" to see if the tone arm will "balance" (like a see saw) If not, the dial assembly (which is a weight) needs to be slid either forward or backwards to achieve balance. After balancing, turn the dial to a number higher than 0 to increase tracking force..keep increasing the tracking force until it stops skipping, but no more than necessairy. To much force causes wear/damage to albums. If there is no tracking force adjustment on the tone arm, I would suggest contacting Crosley @ http://www.crosleyradio.com/Support.aspx
Hope this helps.

Tone Arm skips past first song


Hello, A. Do not try to close the case when there is a record inside!! The fact that the turntable cannot do this is not a design flaw--you'll be hard pressed to find a portable turntable that can close with a record inside because if you were to pick up the player with one inside, it could easily slip off of the spindle and scratch against the sides of the player.
B. Are you using the cueing lever to lift the tone arm before you place it on the record? Read the instructions to see where the cuing lever is (it's a little switch on the right side of the tone arm). When you lift it, the tone arm will lift up and allow you to position it wherever you want on a record, then you depress the lever to make the tone arm touch the record and being playing.
I hope that helps!
