Question about Crosley CR248 Turntable

1 Answer

My unit is a Crosley CR-249. The problem is the sound from the unit speakers. It sounds like it's "warbling". . just enough to notice it. Checked all I could, belt, unscrewed the top (four black screws) and took off the snap on the spindle and looked at wiring. Seems fine. Still makes this "warbling". Gotta be from one of the circuit boards or? What else? Please advise what I need to buy or fix to get this going. Want to record records onto CD's/computer. Andy in Maine

    Yup. thought I was on right track. Solution for this then would start at checking power supply which is not original. Then, if not that, I'm hoping to find out which electronic "module" in the works underneath is the suspect or SUSPECTS. I'm not technically up (nor patient enough) to buy the electrical probes/meters to go through that. Do you or anyone know what "board" I would buy to replace the suspect board? Or any guidance there? Help is much apprecited.
    Again, Crosley CR-249, thanks Andy in Maine

If all the mechanics appear in order then the fault is in the preamplifier or its power source - check all the components and the voltage. Also you could add extra capacitors to better filter the power - the "warbling" might be the ripple from the power source.

    I don't think that you can buy electronic parts for this device - at least i don't know about them. But you need a new power source and an preamplifier - they are available as kit parts in hobby shops. But a good dose of patience and at least the basic tools are needed to install them. Take the unit to a repair shop - it's an relatively easy job that will be solved a lot faster than if you would do it.

Crosley cr 54 cd records sound bad


It could be that the needle is worn. Also make sure that dust and dirt have not accumulated on the needle. It could be a bad ground. You didn't really describe what "sound awful" means. The phono section of the amplifier is much more sensitive than the amplifier section for the CD or radio because it is using much less input signal.

Crosley CR6001A: Left speaker barely audible


Hi Eric,

I understand how frustrating this problem can be. The problem can be the result of several different things. Two of them are 1) blown speaker and, 2) blown left amplifier output.

Try listening with stereo headphones. If you can hear both channels clearly, the amplifier is most likely functioning correctly. This is desirable as amp repairs would probably be more costly than a driver (speaker) replacement. Make sure you vary the balance controls while checking for output on both L and R speakers. If the sound is intermittent, the volume or balance control may have dirt built up and may return to working properly by liberally spraying electrical contact cleaner around the stem (knob removed) with the unit unplugged. Use the extension tube to pinpoint the output along the stem. Be careful to keep from over-spraying as it may damage plastic and wood cabinetry. After spraying, rotate the knob fully back and forth several times and then plug back in and try for sound again.

If you can't restore the volume to the left speaker, you may have a blown speaker. This usually happens as a result of excessive volume which leads to distorted sound. If played this way long enough, damage to the speaker is unavoidable.

The speaker can not be fixed - but may be replaced. Replacing the speaker is something most people with conventional hand tools can do - with the unit unplugged. Finding the information on the speaker may prove to require some digging however. You'll need to know the size, wattage rating, impedance value in ohms, and frequency response. It would be best to obtain the exact replacement part if possible.

Other than this, you'll probably need to have it serviced professionally. Good luck!

Recently, when I take the ipod off the Zeppelin, I hear this strange sound, not a hum, but higher in pitch, from the speakers, and when the blue light starts flashing like it's in standby the sound warbles...


there are issues relating to the older models, until the power supply board ahs been replaced and the unit tested, it is hard to say, b and w are fixing units because of the known problems, so check with their service desk.

I have a 70's era Yamaha Natural Sound Stereo Receiver CR-620. It just recently stopped working. It turns on, but doesn't transit sound. Can it be fixed or is it terminal?


If there is no audible physical click from the speaker output relay, after about 10 to 20 seconds, there is an electronic fault in one or both amplifier circuits, which will require repair. If you like the sound of this unit enough to pay maybe $50 give or take, get it repaired. Otherwise, you can pick a similar unit up at a thrift shop for a few dollars.

Tone arm retracts before recording is complete (CR-245)


actual old units (not sure about modern nostalgics) sometimes had a lever that said 7 or 12 inches for 45's or 33's this would tell the mechanism when to set down the arm. If your unit does not have something like this then it sounds like an internal failure that would require it being opened by a tech or sent in for warranty repair.

Got crosley CR-249 for xmas. no cd in box to install


You have a warranty? I would call the company you bought it from and tell them that you had no CD. They will probably replace it.

No sound


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.
