Question about Crosley Conductor CR73 Turntable

Open Question

Crosley turntable does not work at all

I bought this unit because I wanted to be able to play some old records. We only used it a couple of times in months. Then I tried to play a record and after the first couple songs it simply stopped working all together. Help!

It you hear the motor spin and nothing is moving, the belt could be broken.

SOURCE: Needle slides across the record on Crosley 5 in 1 player

you have unscrewed the suspension screw?

also check the needle for dirt and dust... try blue tacking a 5p coin to the top on the needle to give it a little more weight, if the needle stays in place then the arm balance if off, and unless there is a mechanism to adjust that on this turntable then i guess its a return!

SOURCE: Crosley Radio CR246 CD door will not open

Try checking these:

- the CD door motor rubber drive belt (if there is one), it could be either loosened or broken, if so, it needs to be replaced

- the door open/closed sensor switches (contacts), they could be oxydized or damaged, they are located somewhere under the CD tray, possibly at the front end of the unit (depends on brand and model), you need to clean these with some fine sandpaper

It could be something else like the door motor driver IC, the power supply for the motor, a bad capacitor in the motor drive section, a loose connection or a broken wire somewhere, but hopefully, it's just a bad rubber belt or a dirty contact.

SOURCE: everything works on my record player but my turntable doesnt spin

This happened to me tonight. I had the same problem, to activate the player on you need to move it to the right until you hear a click. If you don't do it it won't start. Even if all the power is on. This should fix everything!

My turntable a Crosley CR49 is about 14 years old. It plays just fine, but have to manually reset, clicking the tone arm after every record I play, either 45s or 33 1/3. How Can I fix this?

You will need to get to the underside of the turntable. There you should find that the arm when it gets to the centre of the record it will push on a switch. This switch might be out of position or just get stuck by grease or dirt. Correcting it should solve the problem.

Crosley CR40 playing 33 1/2 too fast? What can I do to slow it just a little bit?

I would get a vintage turntable and not a new one inexpensive one. The new record players do not last.

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.

Need the manuel original lost or misplaced and can not find. want to record cassettes to cd's

Insert a blank CD-R or CD-RW into the unit. Press the Function button on the remote (key above Vol+ on the bottom right of the remote) or the turntable itself (top left of the control panel) until the unit is in Phono mode. Then insert the pre-recorded cassette and press Play to advance the tape to where you wish to start recording. With the cassette playing, press the CD Record button (recording will flash on the display). The CD Record button is to the left of the fast reverse button on the unit; it is labeled Record on the remote and is below the Stop button. When one side of the cassette finishes playing, press Stop. Wait for the display to return to Phono. Then eject and turn over the cassette to play side 2 (if you want to record both sides of the tape). Press Play again to advance the tape and then press Record. When this side finishes, press Stop and then Finalize. Finalize is at the bottom left of the remote buttons and to the left of the stand by indicator on the turntable.

The manual is available at Crosley: . The direct link to the manual is . Recording a cassette to CD is on page 11 (page 12 of the pdf).

I hope this helps.

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 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!

Crosley Record Player Stopped Spinning...

I had this same problem with my Crosley 704 and it bamboozled me to no end.

After digging around I dug up the manual online (I bought mine used so I didn't have one to consult). It turns out the record stops when it gets to the end, and to get it spinning again you have to lift up the tone arm and move it right (past the holding latch) until it clicks, and voila, it starts spinning again, ready for a new record.

You'd think that they coulda made it more obvious :(

My Crosley combination turntable/CD/cassette/AM & FM radio has recently started giving me fits. I bought it new in 2003 and, until a few months ago, it worked great. But now the turntable arm won't click...

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!

Crosley traveler turntable noise

Hello attaboy. You may need to check you ac cord if the noise is in turntable, radio, & cassettte mod. If it has a 3 prong plug than you are missing a GND connection, in the cord or inside the unit. If it has a 2 prong plug than take it back or open it up and replace filter capacitors or bridge rectifiers in units power supply.
