Hello, My tone arm won't click (there is no tension when I move it to the right) so I opened up the record player and discovered that a white plastic piece has fallen off (see picture). I know this is the problem because my belt is working fine. Where should I be putting this piece? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Here is the white piece I was talking about: http://tinypic.com/r/ztb0hw/7

SOURCE: Tone arm retracts before recording is complete (CR-245)

The nickel on the tone arm is the best solution that I have found. I taped a nickel onto the head of the tone arm about 1/4 inch back from the point of the stylus and then taped 3 quarters near the fulcrum to slightly counterweight the nickel's effect. This fixed one of the disc skiing that my Crosley had when I first got it. A new stylus is in the mail and I will try the new needle without the nickel and quarters to see if the original needle was just bad.

It would appear you have a problem with the "Cuing mechanism" this is quite a common problem. This link below will assist you to understand about it.
http://www.turntablebasics.com/advice.html
What you need to do is locate a service manual for your exact make and model, in there you will find the necessary troubleshooting steps to take to isolate and cure your issue. However I have had a look and have been unable to locate any, perhaps a direct approach to the manufacturer may yield one?
It can often simply be a faulty switch, the "Mode Switch" this is simply replaced, however to obtain this one ,must have the parts number, the ONLY place this is available is in a service manual. Sometimes it is the belt or drive? it is usually something quite simple, often it's obvious once the TT is disassembled.
should you not wish to DIY, simply find a competent Turntable repair place and ask first for a "Quote" once appraised of the costings etc, then go from there.

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.

ION Profile LP Vinyl-to-MP3 Turntable, tone arm won't drop


I've got the same problem. When you put therecord on, spin it from the centre, and it will release the mechanism inside,this is what I do, and it works fine. I think the problem is that there are twoplates under the turntable, and there was grease between them, after a few goesthe grease disappears, causing the problem.

Wurlitzer one more time. no sound and record will not eject


There is a switch just under the tone arm. When the tone arm moves towards the centre it slowly pushes two copper strips together. When they meet it starts the motor to eject the record. If you can't Cancel the record with the cancel button then that is a different problem, otherwise you can adjust the trip switch by inserting a 7mm spanner down the hole to the right of the tone arm post.

Tonearm lifter in UP position - how to fix


I have also had this problem with the same model turntable. I opened mine up and the problem seems to have been that the grease on the arm lift and cueing lever was gumming up the linkage between the two. (I suspect that my turntable hadn't been used in some time.) I managed to free up the parts by manually working the the arm lift (pressing it down) several times. I'm not sure that I needed to open up the chasis for this fix but it did help me to see what was going on. Good luck with yours.

Tone Arm skips past first song


Hello, A. Do not try to close the case when there is a record inside!! The fact that the turntable cannot do this is not a design flaw--you'll be hard pressed to find a portable turntable that can close with a record inside because if you were to pick up the player with one inside, it could easily slip off of the spindle and scratch against the sides of the player.
B. Are you using the cueing lever to lift the tone arm before you place it on the record? Read the instructions to see where the cuing lever is (it's a little switch on the right side of the tone arm). When you lift it, the tone arm will lift up and allow you to position it wherever you want on a record, then you depress the lever to make the tone arm touch the record and being playing.
I hope that helps!

Early tone arm pickup


On some record players there is an adjusting screw at the back of the tone arm that adjusts the tone arm drop in location but I don't think it will adjust the pick up point. That is controled by a steel rod under the record player deck that moves over and pushes a little trip lever near the center of the platter so that a gear is engauged and the end of record cycle is started. I'm not sure but you may be able to find an adjustment under the deck that is near the rotation point of the tone arm that will adjust that rod so that it will pickup later. Hope this helps some.
