Hi and a Happy New Year to all :)

My latest project is getting my Beocord 7000 back to life.

Dillen (Martin) is the supplier of a new belt set, fast and quick delivery, so if you need belts for your Beocord, just ask Dillen in a PM, he will hook you up :)

Even though Dillen supplies a very good description on how to change the belts, I have decided to take some pictures and share them with you..

 

This tutorial is for the latest version of the BC7000 tape deck with 3 belts, there are also a version with only 1 belt. I guess the BC 6500 might be similar, but i really don't know.

 

Step 1:

Loosen the 2 screws on the back on the Beocord, but don't remove them, just loosen and then press them upwards and tighten at the top.

 

 

 

 

Step 2:

I forgot to take pictures of the button panel removal, but it is fastened to the left and right, and just above the tape deck.

Rremove the lid by pressing it slightly back, aprox 1 cm, end lift it up, then remove the red holders for the circuit board, be very careful, the plastic is old and not very flexible any more, so don't use to much force.

 

Step 3:

Remove the 2 screws to the left and right of the front panel, and tilt it forward, just enough to release the holders for the circuit board.

 

Step 4:

Remove the connector for the tape deck, and lift up the circuit board, I decided to just loosen both of the metal holders and remove the circuit board completely, but it is not necessary. Then remove the 3 screws that holds the tape deck, and remove the connector to the bottom print. Then take the deck out.

 

 

 

 

 

Step 5:

I forgot to take pictures on how to remove the black plastic from the tapedeck, but it is just 4 screws holding it.

The 2 small belts can then be removed (my pictures shows the new fitted).

 

 

Step 6:

To get to the big flat belt, the metal housing holding the brass wheel, needs to be removed, on each side of the deck, there are screws holding this bracket, one side has 2 screws that also holds the speed-sensor, remove these 3 screws, and with the use of a small flathead screwdriver, it is possible to "click" the bracket loose and remove it. Notice that the belt is running along the white wheel attached to the brass wheel (my picture is the new belt).

 

 

 

Step 7:

Even though it should be possible to fit the new belt without removing the print, I decided to remove it for better access.. It is easy.. Just unsolder the 2 connectors to the left and right on the print, and press the plastic holder to the left, and lift the board up. This is the old belt.

 

 

 

Step 8:

Fit the new belt and make sure it runs fine along the black wheel.. Remember that when you re-attach the metal bracket, you need to get the belt around the white wheel also, It can be tricky, but I used a "thick" metal stick to stretch the belt around the white wheel just before the bracket was clicked into place.. Just don't use pliers or pointy/sharp thingies, as you might damage your new belt.

 

 

 

 

 

Step 9:

Put it all back together and find a tape and try it out... It works :)

 

 

Hope this will help others :)

Hi

thanks a lot for this great tutorial.

I was wondering if anyof you can direct me (or share) the dimensions of the tape rubber belt for the ouverture and for the century.

I found that the ouverture should be 8.5cm diameter and 5 mm width but not sure is correct. No data found for the century one.

 

thanks a lot for your help

stay safe!!
