I have a Crosley CR249 record player. When I switch it to "On", it doesn't turn on and the red light doesn't go on either. I've tried switching the outlet it's in as well as the AC Adapter and neither thing has helped.
I know this is really late, but I thought I would add my answer to help any others searching for solutions. I have the same model and had the same problem. I opened it up with a friend of mine and noticed that the joints to the power/volume connection were not good. We resoldered the connections that were bad and it worked 100%. Hope this helps.

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 wantthe collection to stay in good shape and retain their value, ditch the Crosley ASAP.
Hi, Try this. with it turned off. Lift tone arm across a record to the run out groove and set it down. Now power up and hopefully it will reset itself. In all honesty I would sell it and get a decent old school player. John. Styluscity.com
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 :(
