Crosley Audio Players & Recorders - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support
The motor on my Crosley cr74 does not turn.
belt is OK
Hello Tom, you would have to measure if the engine gets power, also control the key that drives the engine when it starts
Check if you can move the motor shaft with your hand, to confirm that it is not locked
Good luck with the checks

Hola Tom, tendrias que medir si le llega alimentacion al motor, tambien controlar la llave que acciona al motor cuando arranca
Fijate si puedes mover el eje del motor con la mano, para corroborar que no esta trabado
Suerte con los chequeos

No sound from Crosley Director
I am wondering if you were ever successful in getting any sound? My unit is doing the same thing, but it has been since I plugged my phone in the line-in jack. Everything is powered, but no sound and I called Crosley and it is a discontinued model. There is no phono/line switch and if there was, I believe my problem would be solved. Thank you, if you get this and answer what your results were!

All my records sound really modulated skipping the pitch on longer notes and higher end vocals. It is pretty much brand new, any ideas pleaseeee????
I suggest you begin by ensuring the turntable and tonearm are as near perfect as you can. The reproduction of sound from vinyl depends first and foremost on the operation of the mechanical components.
The correct stylus fitted correctly with the weight of the tonearm adjusted to the recommended value for the cartridge. There should be no friction vertically or laterally in the arm travel, though some high quality types are fitted with hydraulic dampers.
It is also essential the turntable runs smoothly at a consistent speed. Vinyl purists have all sorts of ways of checking the turntable speed is correct. Most turntables have rubber belts or wheels in the drive from the motor and a defect can ruin the quality of the reproduction.
Owning a turntable for vinyl reproduction is a suitable hobby for a keen amateur mechanic...
Once you are satisfied the mechanical components are in good order and functioning correctly there is only the electronics to consider.
There are two approaches. One involves putting a known good signal into the input of your record player amplifier and the other involves using the output from your turntable into a known good amplifier and speaker system.
These steps involve opening up the case of your record player and making and unmaking various connections.
