If you registered the product with Crosley you can contact them.
Otherwise it seems you have to contact the distributer of the product for the nearest service center.

SOURCE: I have a Crosley CR248 cd record player/recorder stopped working

If nothing lights up and the whole unit is dead, you may have a blown fuse, a bad power supply, or an electrical outlet that is not giving you power. (Don't laugh, it has happened to all of us... the "broken" thing wasn't plugged in or the outlet it was plugged into was off for some reason). Anyway, if the thing lights up and everything else in the system works except the turntable going 'round, perhaps there is a slipped or broken belt. Most late-model Crosley turntables have been belt drive, so the first thing to look at if everything else works is to press the buttons to start the record playing and then turn the record gently around with your finger on the label, making the whole platter turn clockwise when looking down at the record. Mechanically, the tonearm should cue up and pivot in to the record and it should gently drop onto the record. If you cue the tonearm up and move it in to the end of the last song on the LP and let it back down and turn the record again, it should follow the record's grooves into the center of the record and then lift and "park" the tonearm after everything is done. During the time the needle is on the record and you are turning the record, you should hear the record playing (it will sound bad, because you won't be turning at the right speed!), but that should indicate that the turntable is working mechanically and electrically.
If everything works like I mentioned except the record player won't make the record turn, the next step is to see why it isn't turning. you'll need to lift the plastic platter off the turntable. Most of these have a snap ring (usually a simple spring wire ring that doesn't go all the way around the center spindle. It may have an E-ring instead. Use a small screwdriver to pop this off and be sure to catch it, it might try to pop off the turntable and fly across the room! Lift the platter and you'll probably find a broken belt underneath. You'll have to replace that to make the records spin again. The hardest part is to locate a replacement belt! If nobody near you stocks belts (lol) then online outfits like LPGear.com can be a source. After you replace the belt and put the platter back on the player, remember to replace the snap ring. You might want to lubricate the platter's bearing with an appropriate lubricant, but that is your call as to whether that will be necessary. This is likely a styrene or simple thermoplastic plastic bearing, so be real careful what you use for a lubricant! if you're not sure, don't use anything! Like I said, it's not a difficult repair, it's just hard to find the part these days! Good Luck!

CD will not finalize


No-way should it take that length of time to finalise anything. My DVD recorder only takes about 3 minutes at the most to do a 4 hour disc! CD are only 80 minutes max. I suspect you have an electrical fault on the unit. I would take it to the nearest Crosley Repair place.

I can not get my Crosley CR248 Songwriter to Finalize when I try to transfer from cassette to cd. It keeps showing me FAIL....


I don't know this particular machine but here are some general comments.
Most CD recorders need you to press (and sometimes hold) the record button followed by the play button before tehy actually record anything (if you don't press the play button you will still hear sound via headphones etc. but no recording file will be created)
Does it record from vinyl records okay or is it just cassettes?
Are you using the correct sort of CD?
We use a Denon CD recorder and it only works with AUDIO CDs - computer data CDs or CDRWs will not work in it. Even if the Crossley will accept computer CDs it may require a particular format either +ve or -ve (labelled CDR+ or CDR-) to be compatible. Once you have tried finalising a disk and it has failed you cannot use the same disk again.

Crosley CR2406A will not record CDs properly.


I had this problem when recording CD-Rs. I switched to CD-RWs and didn't have the problem again.

Hi, the crosley will no longer record onto any music cdr/rw. It will indicate that the cdr is blank-i know it is- then the zeros/record appears but no recording takes place. thanks if you can help.


I turned it off for two (2) hours - turned it on and it worked. Apparently this unit overheats after one session: one (1) cd-r per session then shut-down.
It is worth it, when it works, because my lps have no hiss when finalized.
