WHY WILL MY TONE ARM NOT RETURN?
The turntable is not automatic. The record will stop at the end, but the tone arm will not return. The tone arm is a click-style: It is a manual turntable and will only return manually.
THE RECORD IS PLAYING, BUT I GET NO SOUND.
Make sure to remove the white protective needle cover from the end of the tone arm. Make sure the plastic needle was not removed when the protective cover was taken off. Adjust the volume to a higher level.
IF MY TURNTABLE IS NOT TURNING, HOW DO I GET IT TO TURN?
Make sure the power is turned ON and the unit's function selection is set on PHONO. Make sure the right speed is selected by turning the switch to either ‘33 ⅓ or ‘45 or 78’.
Lift the tone arm and carry it over to the beginning of the record. If it is not spinning, try unplugging the power from the wall and letting the system sit for 15-20 minutes. If the turntable is still not spinning, please check to see that the belt is still attached. Watch the video on our website at http://crosleyradio.eu/support on how to replace the turntable belt. If the turntable is still not spinning, ask assistance from our support team.
WHY DOES THE NEEDLE SLIDE ACROSS THE RECORD?
Make sure to remove the white protective needle cover from the end of the tone arm. Make sure the red or white plastic needle was not removed when the protective cover was taken off.
WHY DOES THE TURNTABLE TURN TOO SLOW OR TOO FAST?
Make sure you have the correct speed selected for the record you are playing. If this does not free up the tone arm, you can use the Pitch Control knob to adjust speed so that it gets the right tempo.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A 78 RPM AND A 33 1/3 RPM RECORD?
The 78 record turns at a faster speed than the 33 1/3 record. RPM = Rotates Per Minute
