Crosley turntable problem

Tone arm will not swing back into off position and rest in the turntable arm holder. Will only go as far as the edge of the spinning platter. So, the only way the unit will shut off is turning it off at the phono switch on the front of the unit. I have applied some pressure to try force the arm into the rest, but it will not go and I do not want to push it so hard as to break the arm. Any ideas?

    Thanks for all the help. When I took the unit apart and looked under it I found the linkage that connects the speed selection switch with the tone arm was not aligned properly. Once it was aligned properly, the unit worked just like new. Thanks again.

  1. Check to see if at the base of the tone arm where it goes into the base of the unit the "cue" plastic riser is not out of position.
  2. Check to see if the "record size" is properly set, as this will prevent tone arm from returning properly set.

Some internal component is obviously stuck or malfunctioning, You can open it up and check the movable components, if under warranty, I would call the company first. Otherwise if you are like me, you would open it up and start trying to figure out what isn't working, maybe a gear is having problems, I'm sorry but without looking at it myself I don't know for sure since the arm does move, which means the motor can't be bad, maybe the alignment is off for the gears. My advice is call Crosley first and see if this is a known problem to occur and check about the warranty.

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 CR6019A turntable skips


Hi
Being a portable model, it is very easy not to have the turntable level. It is very important that it is level as a tilt can lead to the head "skipping", amongst other things.

Another possible problem is that the balance has become upset by being moved around. The correct balance is achieved b the positioning of a weight on the tone arm on the opposite end to the needle. This can usually be moved short distances to balance the tone arm so that the needle is held in the record groove, by the minimum necessary weight on the needle.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

How can I stop the tone arm from returning too early on smaller records?


The adjustment for auto return position is normally at the tone arm base on the left side under a rubber grommet. Use a flat blade screw driver to move adjustment screw, then test. Keep fine tuning until arm lifts at desired position. Cheers John. Stylus City NZ

Tone arm keeps returning to rest on Crosley CR249


Hi, Try this. with it turned off. Lift tone arm across a record to the run out groove and set it down. Now power up and hopefully it will reset itself. In all honesty I would sell it and get a decent old school player. John. Styluscity.com

Hi. I have a Crosley CR40 mini turntable. When I turn on the power, the vinyl spins but when the needle is placed on the vinyl, the vinyl doesnt move anymore while the spinner underneath it is still...


It sounds like you have too much pressure on the tone arm. Check the underside for springs. You might be able to remedy the problem the old fashioned way. Tape a coin onto the top of the tone arm, as far to the rear as possible. This will eliminate some of the downward pressure onto the record.

How do you shift to play records. When I turn to phono on dial it turns the unit off. I have a radio cd player with CR24 turntable


Move the tone arm off the rest on to the record and it will start to spin. There is a switch that turns the player off when the tone arm is on the rest.

Tone arm will not move over on self-start unless


Hi, they are not an auto start model turntable. To start lift tone arm off rest and move into position at start of record. It will automatically lift and return to rest as well as shut off at end of record. cheers john ,, Styluscity.com

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!
