Frequently Asked Questions

Why will my tone arm not return?

The tone arm will need to be reset. Lift the tone arm and return it to its rest, then lift the tone arm and carry it over to the spindle. Allow the tone arm to auto return from your hand. If it does not auto return, spin the platter 20-30 times clockwise. This should reset the tone arm. If the tone arm is still not working correctly, please contact Crosley Technical Support at 1-866-CROSLEY(276-7539).
