Crosley Audio Players & Recorders - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

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.

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 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...

Plug in your USB or SD card, select the correct input and you are good to go...

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!

Is this on all records? if yes! you need to adjust the weight slightly, if the problem is with one record, clean the record in luke warm water and dry carefully, may solve the problem.

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.

Good luck!
