The CD player is defective, if the Crosley has Aux audio input jack, you can buy a cheap CD player which would be a far cheaper alternative.

Two possible reasons. First a faulty cartridge. With the amp on the phono setting, lift the arm up and you should see wires coming out of the cartridge. Make a note of how they fit or remove them from it one at a time. With your finger touching each wire, you should hear a buzz on at least two of the wires (one on the left and one on the right). If you do then the cartridge has gone! If you still don't get a buzz on the left, then the cartridge pre-amp has failed. Most likely an IC.

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.

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
Saludos Franco Dosil

There is no locking mechanism...you may have to pry it, but you are on your own! This is totally up to you as there could be any number of reasons why it is stuck...No responsibility on my end...

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!
