Question about Audio Players & Recorders
This started happening recently, I was listening to an album (33.3) when all of a sudden it switched into 45 mode on its own, then half a minute later switched back to 33.3 mode. Then, later on, it went to like a 42-ish speed (because I could still switch to 45 mode and tell a difference in the music. Now, it's stuck in 45 mode all the time. How did it get this way, and what can I do to get it working properly again? Another intermittent problem I've been having is that sometimes when I press Play it will set the needle down at the beginning of the record, then a split second later stop itself, like the stop mechanism was misaligned or something.

You have drive issues. There is no easy way to fix or to isolate the problem. You'll have to take it to a service technician who can test your unit, and fix the problem. Usually it's one of the 3 main IC (integrated circuits) which cause this problem.

It's most likely a belt issue. I'd call Crosley - their customer service team is there 24/7 and the number is 1-866-CROSLEY (or 1-866-276-7539). If you've had the unit less than 30 days, they'll flat out replace it. If it's been more than 30 days but under a year, they'll replace it and (from what I was told when I called about my own) it's $20 shipping but they'll cover any defects in workmanship, etc - as long as it's not accidental damage, blah blah blah.
But first - they'll hook you up with a Technician to call you back (before you worry about having it leave your possession for a while). The customer service people will take your info - they'll want model, serial, date of purchase, etc - and then depending on the time of day will connect you with, or have a Tech call you back at your convenience.
I was having the dreaded "Hello" error and a customer service rep actually told me how to get past it - I was thrilled :)

33 1/3 and 45 RPM Selector;---With these selector you have to choose the playing speed of the platter. Most 12" vinyl records with 1 track need 45 RPM, all others 33 1/3. Although this is no hard rule you could use it as a general guideline.----------
Pitch bend trick when on 33 1/3 RPM:---Some people use a little pitch-bending trick when the 33 1/3 RPM mode is selected. When a track is playing you can hold down the 33 1/3 RPM button and at the same time press the 45 RPM button. The speed will increase to 45 RPM but when you use it with tiny little pushes you can perform an un hearable positive pitch-bend.
------------------------Its quite possible that this buttons are getting jammed, they are not making proper contact.Try spraying contact cleaner spray directly to the side of the button and let it remain there, then press both 33 and 45 buttons few times and see if that makes any difference, but if that is not helping then,it sounds like a short on the pcb, one of the IC's could have gone bad, or the 33/45 have shorted out. -------- So its working on both 33 and 45 speed but not switching from 33 to 45 or from 45 to 33.-------- But first try freeing the 33 to 45 switch button.It must be getting jammed due to dirt or anything blocking it.---------- If that is not helping then try other things,---------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.
