No sound from speakers when turntable playing records
All connections checked properly and the cassette deck, the cd player and the radio, from unit aiwa Z-L500 all play perfect through the speaker system.When you play a record you can hear it inside the unit but not the speakers.Also the equalizer switch under turntable mat is in on position and red and white cables from turntable to equalizer are correct.

Re: no sound from speakers when turntable playing records
Your turntable probably doesn't have a phono input. Perhaps you are using an aux or tape input. If that's the case, low sound and poor sounding music will result. You will need an external preamp that will raise the output level to that of a line level, and set the parameters for the equalization(RIAA) to give you the correct sound for a turntable. These preamps are sold most anywhere....try Radio Shack.

Amplifiers always take the sound of the turntable via a separate pre-amp from all other systems, such as radio and CD players. This pre-amp can go faulty killing the sound from the turntable only. If the turntable goes through the actions of playing the record, then this is the cause of your trouble.
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.
Insert a blank CD-R or CD-RW into the unit. Press the Function button on the remote (key above Vol+ on the bottom right of the remote) or the turntable itself (top left of the control panel) until the unit is in Phono mode. Then insert the pre-recorded cassette and press Play to advance the tape to where you wish to start recording. With the cassette playing, press the CD Record button (recording will flash on the display). The CD Record button is to the left of the fast reverse button on the unit; it is labeled Record on the remote and is below the Stop button. When one side of the cassette finishes playing, press Stop. Wait for the display to return to Phono. Then eject and turn over the cassette to play side 2 (if you want to record both sides of the tape). Press Play again to advance the tape and then press Record. When this side finishes, press Stop and then Finalize. Finalize is at the bottom left of the remote buttons and to the left of the stand by indicator on the turntable.
if it arrived by mail then the sender might have screwed the transit screws down to avoid damaging the phono , i am not familiar with memorex but if like most turntables there should be some big screw heads visible on the top of the phono or possibly even under the platter all you have to do is unwind the screws until the platter unit moves freely [you should be able to push it up and down a little bit ]
my Crosley CR6007A-MA turntable's sound is very, very low. You can't even hear it barely. I haven't had it long at all and it wasn't broke due to any sort of abuse. I really have no idea why it would do this for no reason! Help!
Get a computer with an audio input or soundcard. Like a Mac with garageband and a soundcard. connect both with a male 1/8" to male 1/8" cable. Press play on the tape deck, record on the computer. Once done, edit and trim the beginning and end. Import to itunes. Create a playlist. Burn to cd. Simple.
