Question about Crosley RADIO CR6249-BK DELUXE KEEPSAKE USB TURNTABLE BLACK

1 Answer

Crosley Turntable is playing too slow.

I got this turntable for Christmas. It was bought from Urban Outfitters. It is the Crosley Keepsake Deluxe one (the one with the floral pattern, not that that really matters) It worked fine when I got it but I noticed it was playing a hair too slow. I took off the plater to make sure the belt was fine. All seemed fine so I put everything back on. After I did that it played WAY too slow. So I kept taking the belt off and putting it back on hoping maybe I just put it on wrong. It was too slow each time, except once when I put it back on it played so fast it sounded like the Chipmunks. Anyway, I ordered a new belt for it because after taking it off so many times it stretched out quite a bit. I put the new belt on and it was very snug. I started playing a record and it was even slower than before!! And yes I was playing it on the correct speed. All of my records play on 33. But with the new belt it was so slow that it almost sounded normal when I put it on 45! I have no idea what could be wrong with it. i feel like i've tried everything. And I can't return it to get my money back..Any help would be great!

    Also, after putting the belt back on I pushed the platter a little with my finger and it didnt spin like its supposed to. it spun for a second then stopped.

Brand new crosley keepsake that spins too fast even at its slowest speed setting (33 1.2). Can I fix or should I send it back for repair?


If it is belt driven it could be that the belt is not moving to the smaller diameter pulley for the slower speed. But the unit is new so I would just return it for an exchange at the store it was purchased from. It is new - the heck with a repair - just get another one!

My crosley keepsake turntable has been having a lot of static and the sound is very low, I can only hear it if I turn the volume all the way up. I'm not sure if the needle is the problem or there is s


I would check the wires to the cartridge. It might that one or more is off or loose.
If you turn down the volume completely and listen with a record playing you should be able to hear (with your ear) the stylus in the grooves of the record playing the track. Pick a loud (rock) record for this. If it does that OK the stylus is good.

Why is my brand new crosley turntable keepsake hunter skipping tracks?


The turntable may not be level. Also, the stylus could be damaged or defective. The stylus pressure may not have been set correctly in production or may have been affected by shipping.

I have a Crosley Keepsake turntable which plays 33 1/3 rpm records perfectly. However, when I try to play 45rpm records the sound is very distorted, especially the vocals which sound as though they are...


The only thing (I think) that would cause a 45 to play badly and the 33 not, is either the cartridge or stylus, most likely the stylus. It's either worn or damaged, so it fits badly in the larger grooves of 45's then the smaller ones of 33!
The signal coming from the cartridge is the same on 45 as it would be from 33.

This is a question for my daughter who lives in Japan. She has a Crosley turntable she bought from Urban Outfitters. The stylus arm has suddenly started skating over the record, ie won't play anything. ...


I have no experience of Crosley turntables, however, stylus arm skating across the record surface on any turntable is normally due to the counter balance weight being incorrectly adjusted. In order to track across a record properly, the stylus must press down on to the record very lightly. If there is too little pressure, skating is what tends to happen. Too much pressure can cause distortion of the sound and excessive wear of the record.

At the pivoting end of the stylus arm, there should be a counter balence weight. This is normally adjustable (but not always - depends on quality and features of the particular turntable), and is used to set the pressure the stylus applies to the record surface, measured in grammes. The manual that came with it should tell you how to adjust it, but for most turntables stylus pressure is between 1 to 3 grammes.

If you dont have the manual, have a good look at the pivoting end of the stylus arm to see if soemthing is obviously wrong, or if not whether there is something with numbers on it that can be turned or slid. This is likley to be the counter weight. Try adjusting it.
Within reason, the stylus weight isnt critical so a "trial and error" approach wont do any harm.
