Sometimes the glue works, sometimes it doesn't. If you need the part, please go HERE.

To find out how to open up your turntable, go HERE.

Please be very careful when doing this. DO NOT just flip your turntable upside down and start taking things apart. Make sure you put ABSOLUTELY NO PRESSURE on the Tonearm. The easiest way is to use your dust cover, then flip it upside down, with the dust cover on. Also, try and remove the platter first, otherwise it will drop, and you could cause damage to the magnet.

Also make sure your unit is unplugged before doing any work.

Good luck!

There is a post that goes into the black knob.. that post has slipped down into the table. you need to open up the table by taking out all the screws and taking off the feet (there are a few more screws under the feet too), locate the post and push it back up through the hole... be careful not to bend anything by the switch.

dab a bit of glue on the post and place the knob back on. Done!

Sorry Regina but it sounds to me like you need to ditch the Crosley & step up to a SL 1200 model.

My technic 1200 mk2 skips records, i tried other needles and adjusted tone arm. Even tried pennies on cartridge


Ensure that the turntable is sitting as flat as possible and does not allow any external vibration to penetrate.
Also try operating it without a record on it make sure that the plate is turning smoothly without interruption and also does not have any vibration.

Tonearm not emitting signal into Serato


there is a switch that cuts off the signal when the tone arm docks.check the wiring is not broken inside and that the switch is ok.typically,red green white black red and white are plus and left ground is green and right ground is black.the collar that screws on to the head unit has 4 pins.make sure the contacts are clean.measure the wires one at a time from the tone arm to the rca plugs on the back.the green and black go to the outside collars,and the red and white go to the center pin of the rca plugs

Turntable does not rotate when switched 'on'.


K, I'm not familiar with that particular stereo unit but there were a lot of stereos from years gone past that used a turntable made by BSR. When you activate the switch to start the turntable listen closely to the record platter for a hum or possibly the sound of a motor turning (they're quite quiet). Is the switch lever you pull rectangular made of black plastic, you pull it towards you one click to start the record and pull it one step further (spring loaded) to make the tone arm lift from the record automatically? Just want to make sure I'm talking about the right turntable before we continue.

Power switch woes


take out all the screws and open up the case.. you should see the post by the switch.. its slid down into the player. carefully push the post back up (not bending anything), dab some glue on the tip and place the knob back on.
