I had this same problem with my Crosley 704 and it bamboozled me to no end.
After digging around I dug up the manual online (I bought mine used so I didn't have one to consult). It turns out the record stops when it gets to the end, and to get it spinning again you have to lift up the tone arm and move it right (past the holding latch) until it clicks, and voila, it starts spinning again, ready for a new record.
You'd think that they coulda made it more obvious :(

I FIGURED IT OUT! Here's how to fix the problem. 1. Remove the c clamp that holds your turntable in the box. Do this slowly so you don't over stretch or break your belt. 2. There are 3 screws holding the entire record player mechanism in the box. Take those out. 3. Look just under where the arm (the thing that holds the needle stylus) attaches to the mechanism. See that long wire rod that runs from that spot to just about the center of the turntable? It's being held at the arm by a little plastic piece that has a screw. The screw needs to be tightened. Once you tighten the screw, that will make is so that the arm has to be moved less to the right to start the record, and more to the left to turn it off. This makes it possible for you to hear the end of your songs! 4. Screw the mechanism back in the box (not too tight, you want those shock mounts to work). 5. To get the belt back on the wheel, first look under the wheel. See the big circle that is about half the size of the wheel? Place the belt around that. 6. Now look further out on the wheel. Do you see a plastic peg (actually 2 pegs....they are across from each other on the wheel)? Stretch the belt to one of the pegs. 7. Place the wheel back on the mechanism with the stretched part over the motor. Now spin the wheel slowly until the belt falls onto the motor. 8. Reattach the c clamp on the wheel and you're all set. Oh, I forgot to mention that you should put a record on and make sure you adjusted that screw under the arm enough. I had to do mine a couple of times. Hope this is helpful! Here's a video I found that better explains how to get the belt back on. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QaW84Z6GMVs

The wires that connect to the rear of the cartridge are easy to dislodge while changing a stylus. A flashlight will help you see underneath. There are tiny little push-on connectors that attach the wires to the pins.

Testimonial: "They seemed attached but I pressed them together more firmly. Then I found I could open the shaft and I see that one wire of the four does not attach to anything at that point - so the problem is probably that-do you think? Now I just need to figure out how to re-attach it."
