Hi! I recently acquired a BeoSystem 5500 and am having trouble with the Beogram turntable and the tone arms not moving along the tracking. I've opened her up and everything is in place as it should be (according to manual diagrams and pictures from the internet) except the white string inside has come loose. It is not attached at either end. Obviously I have assumed this is the problem but after scouring the internet I have found no pictures or threads or posts or anything to help me figure out how to reroute the string.

 

Could someone please help me? I greatly appreciate it!

Greetings,

try the download of the BG5500 service manual on the Beoworld site and you should find the drawing and description of how to route the carriage string.

it is fairly straight forward but make sure that little knot in your string sits exactly where it should or your arm will not get into the correct resting position.

that all is if there are no broken anker points where the string is attached.,

good luck

OH unless it’s the part about mounting the wire drive?

Typically the problem is that the mounting point "H" - which is a small plastic tab - has broken off.

Don't bother trying to glue it back on (even if you find the tiny bit). It can be replaced with for example a small nut & bolt through the plastic carrier. There are a number of threads on this somewhere on the forum, but searching for them may take some effort.
