Question about Crosley CR249TA Turntable

Open Question

My Crosley Keepsake CR246 record player just arrived today. However, after setting things up as instructed in the manual, it does not play records correctly. The turntable spins, but when I lower the tone arm on the record it skims across the beginning and does not play the record properly. There is a tiny bit of sound in addition to static. What is going on here? Everything seems to be working properly otherwise.

SOURCE: Crosley Radio CR246 CD door will not open

Try checking these:

- the CD door motor rubber drive belt (if there is one), it could be either loosened or broken, if so, it needs to be replaced

- the door open/closed sensor switches (contacts), they could be oxydized or damaged, they are located somewhere under the CD tray, possibly at the front end of the unit (depends on brand and model), you need to clean these with some fine sandpaper

It could be something else like the door motor driver IC, the power supply for the motor, a bad capacitor in the motor drive section, a loose connection or a broken wire somewhere, but hopefully, it's just a bad rubber belt or a dirty contact.

SOURCE: I have a Crosley Keepsake turntable which plays 33

The only thing (I think) that would cause a 45 to play badly and the 33 not, is either the cartridge or stylus, most likely the stylus. It's either worn or damaged, so it fits badly in the larger grooves of 45's then the smaller ones of 33!
The signal coming from the cartridge is the same on 45 as it would be from 33.

Remove the cartridge head shell from the arm and reinsert it. You must be having a contact problem with the cartridge. ( loose connection )

HOW DO I ADJUST THE SPEED ON A CROSLEY CR47 RECORD PLAYER


There should be a speed control switch in the upper right side near the arm.

Crosley troubadour stops before record is done


Check to see if there is a switch setting for 7", 10", and 12" records. Sounds like a switch setting to me. Does it always pick up at the same physical location on any record? If so, that is the likely cause. Personally, if you have an extensive collection of vinyl, a Crosley is definitely NOT the best turntable to be playing them on. You'd get way better fidelity and save your records from physical groove damage by investing in a better turntable. If you want the collection to stay in good shape and retain their value, ditch the Crosley ASAP.

I would check the wires to the cartridge. It might that one or more is off or loose.
If you turn down the volume completely and listen with a record playing you should be able to hear (with your ear) the stylus in the grooves of the record playing the track. Pick a loud (rock) record for this. If it does that OK the stylus is good.

Crosley Record Player Stopped Spinning...


I had this same problem with my Crosley 704 and it bamboozled me to no end.

After digging around I dug up the manual online (I bought mine used so I didn't have one to consult). It turns out the record stops when it gets to the end, and to get it spinning again you have to lift up the tone arm and move it right (past the holding latch) until it clicks, and voila, it starts spinning again, ready for a new record.

You'd think that they coulda made it more obvious :(
