This could be an earth lead to the cartridge problem, or the cartridge itself. Check the connections.

Can you plug in crosley turntables to a bose speaker system to increase the sound quality? Do you need an amp or is it all included?

No, you cannot. Your Crosley will not have the correct line output jacks. Even if it did, although the output level will be fine, you will not have the proper RIAA equalization, making the sound worse, not better.

The Needle may need replacing, if after replacing the needle and you have the same problem, it could be a connection from the needle pick up to the recever.

When I turn on the record player on my Crosley, the digital display reads "line". No sound comes from the speakers unless they are turned all the way up. And then it sounds tinny and fuzzy. HELP!

Seems like the wrong input source has been selected. The gain on the LINE input is much, much lower than the PHONO input. Try changing the source knob to PHONO. Dont forget to lower the volume before you do this.

I have a Crosley 6005a. In turntable mode - sound is tinny and needs to be turned way up to hear it and it is not in stereo. Is this just the way it is or can I fix it. I bought it second hand

Check all conections to the turntable, also I think you should buy a new cartridge as a matter of course. I rather suspect it's (the cartridge) either **** or gone!

Wild guess but try this with the power off. Rotate the platter clockwise about 5-10 turns. You may feel internal mechanical engagement as you do it. The cueing mechanism may cycle it through its motion and return it to the rest.

Needle drag

Hi, i know this sounds stupid but have u tried using a different record as the record your using may have a defect which wont allow it to play any further. I would also make sure that you weight the tonearm as much as possible but not to much that you wear ur needles out. Let me know how you get on. Gud luck!
