Low Volume from right speaker of entertainment center - turntable only
CD, Tape and Radio functions of my Crosely Model CR72 Entertainment Center work properly. However, the turntable function plays normal out of the right remote speaker but at a very low volume out of the left. I've switched the speaker wires and both speakers work normally when plugged into the left connection but not the right connection. This only occurs when the unit is used on the turntable function. It doesn't seem as though there's anything wrong with the speaker connections. Could this be a problem with a faulty stylus or possibly a connection at the sylus. The unit was purchased about 3 months ago with the turntable working properly up until this recent problem which occurred suddenly.
Re: Low Volume from right speaker of entertainment center...
Hi There thanks for your very good desctiption of the problem it really helps to have a lot of detail...
There are Mono and stereo types of stylis cartridges and it sounds like you have a mono equipped into a stereo amplifier..
If there are 4 small coloured wires visible under the stylis then
its a stereo stylis and should work, have a close look and maybe one of the small wires has dropped of the small pins on the back opf the stylis cartridge.
If there only two wires visible then its a mono cartridge and this is why you only have sound from one channel..
So answer is wires dropped of the stylis.
Wrong type of stylis cartridge.
if there are four wires and thay all look connected then perhaps the stylis is faulty and you need to replace it...

Cindy Wells (on those shelf systems that can burn a CD, place a blank CD-R or CD-RW (if supported) in the disc tray. Use the function button to set the recording source (Phono with the Croseley units). Place the tape to record in the tape deck and press play reach a point a bit before the desired point to start the recording. (Some also will record from the radio, turntable, or other device. Again start the source playing.) Then press CD Record. Press Stop when you want the recording to stop or when one side of the tape/LP is finished. (Some have a Split Track button if you want to identify every track. Press this during the silent period between songs.) Otherwise, you will get one track per side with tapes/LPs.)
You are describing too problems, won't close all the way, could be a bad loadind belt. the second issue it will not play, the timing gear is out of sync, or the laser pickup is not functioning, you will need to take it to a service shop for assessment.
Bose does not release their schematics or parts lists, effectively making themselves the only repair center for their products. Your only safe repair method is to contact the service/repair center at www.bose.com. They will likely offer you a flat rate repair or credit towards the purchase of a new unit.
"No disk" is about as fatal a CD read error as ther is. Before we assume the player is at fault let's look at our media. A CD should be handled and cared for like any opitical device. Dirt, fingerprints and scratches are tolerated somewhat but the CD standard isn't impervious to problems.
Do you get any constant results with any CD, say one that always works vs one that never works? Compare them visually for problems on the one that doesn't. I use a clean soft cloth with glass cleaner to clean my media.
This is the entire troubleshooting section for the unit.
Care of CDs
When a CD becomes dirty, wipe it from the center out with a
cleaning cloth. After playing a CD, store it in its case. Do
not keep it in hot or humid places.
If your unit fails to perform properly, check the following guide
and the relevant sections of the Operating Instructions.
There is no sound.
•Are the speakers and AC power cord connected properly?
The unit shut off suddenly.
•Possibly a short circuit in the speaker terminals.
Disconnect the AC power cord from the AC power outlet
and re-connect the speaker cords correctly.
The unit blacks out when the unit is turned off.
•Is ECO mode set to on?
•Reset the unit.
Poor radio reception.
•Check antenna connection. Adjust the antenna to find the
•Move unit and antenna away from other electric appliances
The tape does not run.
•Is the deck in pause?
Poor tape sound.
•Check for dirty heads. Clean them if needed.
•Use type I (normal) tapes.
•Is the erasure prevention tab of the tape broken off? If so,
cover the detection slot with adhesive tape.
The CD player works poorly.
•Is the disc correctly loaded?
•Is the disc dirty?
•Is the lens affected by condensation? If so, wait
approximately one hour and try again.
Resetting the unit
If an unusual condition occurs in the display window or the
cassette deck, reset the unit as follows:
1 Press POWER to turn off the power.
If the power cannot be turned off, disconnect the AC power
cord, then plug it in again.
2 Hold down s and press POWER.
Everything stored in memory after purchase is cleared.
Moisture may form on the CD pickup lens when:
•The unit is moved from a cold spot to a warm spot
•The heating system has just been turned on
•The unit is used in a very humid room
•The unit is cooled by an air conditioner
When this unit has condensation inside, it may not function
normally. Should this occur, leave the unit for a few hours,
then try to operate again.
Have you checked if this is only when you play CDs or also if you play Tapes or Radio? If sound is not present even if you use radio and tape, then the sound output IC is blown, and needs replacement.
You need to see a professional technician for this.
Also, see if your speakers are connected properly. Then try to connect another set of speakers (borow from a friend) and see if sound is audible. If yes, thn your speakers are faulty.
