How do I fix error 99 on St. Louis turntable, cd, cassette player model 541.809?

When I put a cd into this player, it appears to be trying to read the cd but then the number 99 comes on the screen and then it says error. The cd never plays. Anyone have any suggestions?

Most of these reading errors are caused by dirt on the lazer lens. You can buy a cleaning disc that should solve the problem. If it doesn't then it might be more serious such as damage to the lens itself, or an electronic fault.

SOURCE: Streched CD drive belt

turntableneedles.com has about 450 belt sizes in stock. your unit is too new to have this listing yet as the belt should not have failed already so when you call be ready with the length of the old belt. Don't worry that it is stretched, a new size will be calculated that is about 3-5% shorter.

SOURCE: Turntable will not turn (spin)

It would appear this is a belt drive turntable - here's a link to a site where you can order a replacement, although you may be able to find a cheaper one.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: ION turntable volume is low when plugged into a receiver.

Either the cartridge has failed, or an internal amp in the record deck has, or despite what you say the receiver has. I will clarify this for you. Magnetic cartridges need a pre-amp before it gets amplified by the pre-amp and power amp of your reciever. If that pre-amp fails you will still hear the low sound from the deck, but all others cd/tape would be normal as they don't go into the deck pre-amp.
All you need to is trace the circuit. Find the magnetic cartridge pre-amp and find where it joins with the pre-amp of the amp! If you stick a screwdriver at that point, you will get a buzz at normal volume on each channel. The cartridge pre-amp has gone if you do get a buzz!
You probably find it's a single IC that's gone, some are prone to static problems.

SOURCE: My Crosley combination turntable/CD/cassette/AM &

my Crosley CR6007A-MA turntable's sound is very, very low. You can't even hear it barely. I haven't had it long at all and it wasn't broke due to any sort of abuse. I really have no idea why it would do this for no reason! Help!

SOURCE: Thomas Pacconi Model TPC-MSE-800 turntable

Pjam,
Had the same problem & checked around on the net. Several people tried replacing the belt, but it had no effect. Spoke w/ several repair shops around the country and they concur with what I'd read on the net - bad motors. 3 or 4 repair/supply shops told me getting a motor would be impossible. Since I only listen to 33-1/3 LP's, I messed around w/ it a little and found a solution. Take the turntable out of the unit & you will find a small circuit board attached to the bottom. On that board is a small square blue fixture w/ a white circular "dial" in the middle (has grooves to accept a small straight blade or a phillips screw driver). This controls the voltage to the motor, which in turn controls the motor RPM's. If you set the selector switch to 78, you can experiment /w turning that white circular "dial" to slow the motor down. It isn't very hard to get the speed set properly. The down side is that you will only be able to play 33-1/3 LP's, but they are probably the most common anyways. I assume you could do the same to set the speed for a 45, rather than a 33-1/3. Down side is that you will only be able to play 1 size LP on the 78 speed setting, but it's an easy adjustment that can keep an otherwise in-op turntable functioning. Good luck!

My Spirit of St Louis CD, Radio and cassette player is great. However the CD player won't open anymore. How can this be fixed?


Are you opening by pressing manual control or by using remote control? Quite often there is a small ' pinhole aperture next to the DVD drawer - if so , use a straightend paperclip to push into the hole in order to release the drawer.

My record player (Spirit of St. Louis CD/Cassette/Turntable) still works, but the turntable seems off. The speakers are fine so it's probably a problem with the needle, or the timing belt.


It's defiantly the belt. You can do it yourself. What you need to do is make a note of how it fits NOW - before you remove it (take photo's if you can. This will make it easy to replace it. You will find access to the belt most likely under the turntable matt. Just lift or peel it up. If it is glued you can re-glue it when you have finished, with some Bostick type glue.

When you have removed it take the diameter of the belt in MM and the thickness and search for it on Google. You don't have to be 100% spot on with the diameter measurement.

If you have any problems fitting the belt there are plenty of demonstration video's for belt replacement on YouTube.

Is there any universal remotes that will work with a spirit of st louis radio, cd player, and phonograph? son broke the remote.


There are, but it's..... hit and miss.
The remotes don't cover all remote devices.

You will need the serial # and the brand B-4 you shop for a remote.

Not available from the manufacturer?

Need a needle for a spirit of st louis turntable cd cassette player. do not know what kinnd or model to buy


Do you have the old needle?

If so, you can match them up to charts provided by dealers.
If not, try to find out the make / model of the turntable chassis.
Providing some close up photos that would be a big help.

Turntable won't turn


There is usually a cotter pin at the center of the platter around the spindle base. This can be removed with a screw driver using a twisting motion. There is a blades worth of space between the clip and the spindle base. Screw driver should be in vertical position. Sometimes the vinyl slip mat must be removed first. Watch that clip, cause it can go flyin. Once the clip is removed, the turntable should let go easily.
