    It's the pyle pro PTCDS2UI. And sorry I worded that first response wrong wrong. On this system the aux setting and phonograph setting are the same, and the turntable is just meant to start when you move the needle. I was able to get it to spin normally once, and it hasn't since. I know these aren't made in the highest quality(just from online reviews) but thought it was possible it could just be a loose mechanic or wiring on the inside since I was able to make it spin once. But I'm no expert haha

    Yes it sounds like you will need to take it apart and do some investigating,if it worked once ,more than likely it is something loose.Good luck,wish I was closer to look at it for you.

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.

Hi, most likely the auto function needs resetting. With the power off turn the platter manually clockwise a dozen or so times. Power up and play. Cheers john.

Turn table doesn't start when tone arm is lifted

Did it used to start when you lifted the tonearm?

Many turntables start when the arm is moved over the record.

Hi, Does the arm have a lever to lift the arm up, also called a cue. I had an arm where it did exactly the same thing and found it to be the lifting device. What turntable is it you have?

I have a Califone 1620 model economy classroom phonograph in need

Probably a bad relay switch. Open up the turntable. Identify the motor that spins the table. Follow the wires of that motor to, perhaps, some type of little circuit board with a relay. I have a Backley-Cardy 322-487 classroom phonograph which uses a Califone 1620 amp and a BSR turntable. To get the table to spin, you have to move the tone arm. Mine doesn't move and I'm in the process of replacing the faulty relay that is the problem.

Getting the turnable to come on

some platters will not begin to spin until the tonearm is lifted up from the rest and over to where the record is, then it starts spinning.

alternately the belt may have come off.
will provide general info on how to put it back on.

Platter not spinning properly

Make sure the platter is seated correctly. Lift it off, and set it back down. Also check to see that there is no debris or foreign matter stuck underneath the platter or where the platter sits.

Check to make sure the platter itself is not bent or warped. Do this by removing the platter (lift up), and then put it on a flat table/surface. Look at it from the side. Is it warped?

Hope this helps
