Frequently Asked Questions

The record is playing, but I get no sound.

This unit does not have internal speakers, external speakers will need to be installed. 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. Adjust the volume to a higher level on your external speakers. Make sure your external speakers are hooked up properly. If this doesn't help, please contact us at 1-866-CROSLEY or click here to submit support request.

Why does the turntable turn too slow or too fast?

Make sure you have the correct speed selected for the record you are playing. Keep in mind, some new 33 sized records play at 45 speed. Adjust the pitch control, on the back of your unit you will see a spot that says 33 and 45. These serve as a pitch control and can be adjusted with a Philips head screwdriver. Making these adjustments will change the speed the record plays at. Check the belt and ensure belt is centered not too high or too low and fits snug.

What is the ground wire used for?

The ground wire helps with interference and static, especially when used on the Phono Output setting.

If my turntable is not turning, how do I get it to turn?

The record is playing, but the sound is distorted or very low. How do I fix it?

Make sure all of your cables are hooked up and functional. Ensure you have a preamp or amp hooked up if using as Phono or self-powered speakers if using as Aux (determined by plug-ins on back). If you are using Line Out on your Crosley, you need to use the Line In or Aux In on your receiver or self-powered speakers. If you are using Phono Out on your Crosley, make sure you are using a preamp or use the Phono In on your amplifier. If you are still having problems, please contact us at 1-866-CROSLEY or click here to submit support request.

Can I connect third party external speakers to this unit?

This turntable can be hooked up to external speakers with the RCA jacks on the back. If using as a Line output (determined by the phono/line switch on back of unit) you can use these jacks to hook it into self-powered/active speakers. If using as a Phono output unit will need to be connected first to a phono pre-amp or the phono input of the stereo system. If your receiver has an “AUX input” it will connect to Line output or “Phono input” it will connect to Phono output.

Can I play a record with the lid closed?

Yes. It will not affect playback.

The tone arm seems stuck, how do I get it to move?

Make sure that the tone arm clip is undone. Make sure the twisty tie that comes on it has been removed. If you still have problems, please contact us at 1-866-CROSLEY or click here to submit support request.

Why is my turntable spinning backwards?

Why will my tone arm not return?

This unit does not have a returning tone arm.

What headshell mount or cartridge can I buy to replace current one attached?

We can’t recommend a specific headshell mount or cartridge combination, as that depends on both your budget and music preference. The cartridges mounted on each headshell are equally varied as well, and will require you to adjust your tonearm settings for tracking and weight.

The attraction is only natural.
