Question about Crosley 0187SST Turntable

1 Answer

Crosley CR79 4 in 1 Entertainment Center

The arm for the turntable will not go further right than the end of the part of the turntable where the record sits, so the arm cannot be rested on its stand. You are supposed to pull the arm right to turn the turntable on and pull it left to turn it off. The turntable will turn on and off.

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.

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.

Brand new just got it today... the tone arm goes to quickly across record and music ends up fuzzy and inaudible


You need to increase the weight on the end of the arm to apply more pressure to the stylus. It will either be a screw or you just turn it. If there are numbers on it try it around 2.

My records stop prematurely. the record stops spinning when the arm is in the middle and as a result i cannot hear the end of the record.


The only logical cause is a weak belt, as the arm reaches the center of the platter, the load on the belt becomes to great and it slips around the motor pole. I would replace the belt! Then see if it works.

Cr79 tone arm stops too early


I have a 1956 stereophonic Motorola record player, and it turns off right when I press "on" I noticed that the record speed was 33 1/3 I used 33. Does this make a difference??

This is a question for my daughter who lives in Japan. She has a Crosley turntable she bought from Urban Outfitters. The stylus arm has suddenly started skating over the record, ie won't play anything. ...


I have no experience of Crosley turntables, however, stylus arm skating across the record surface on any turntable is normally due to the counter balance weight being incorrectly adjusted. In order to track across a record properly, the stylus must press down on to the record very lightly. If there is too little pressure, skating is what tends to happen. Too much pressure can cause distortion of the sound and excessive wear of the record.

At the pivoting end of the stylus arm, there should be a counter balence weight. This is normally adjustable (but not always - depends on quality and features of the particular turntable), and is used to set the pressure the stylus applies to the record surface, measured in grammes. The manual that came with it should tell you how to adjust it, but for most turntables stylus pressure is between 1 to 3 grammes.

If you dont have the manual, have a good look at the pivoting end of the stylus arm to see if soemthing is obviously wrong, or if not whether there is something with numbers on it that can be turned or slid. This is likley to be the counter weight. Try adjusting it.
Within reason, the stylus weight isnt critical so a "trial and error" approach wont do any harm.

Turntable does NOT turn.Crosley CR66 vintage Radio and Turntable


Try this - GENTLY move the phono arm to the RIGHT until you hear a click Tof course, do this after you turn on the power via the volume dial and set the other dial to"phono"). Doing this turns on the turntable when you haven't used it in awhile. This worked for us, hope it works for you.

If it doesn't work, you can check the belt by removing the tiny clip at the center post and gently lift the turntable platform/tray to peek at the motor and belt underneath. The pulley is on the right at the 2 o'clock position, the belt should be in contact with it.

Automatic arm


Wild guess. Sounds like the vertical tracking force is too low and/or the ant-skating is maladjusted.
