I just received a Beocord 4500 from the Netherlands, I have a voltage converter and with it, all the lamps function, the cassette appears to play, fast forward, and reverse.

However the lid does not open. The kind gentleman who gave me this Beocord gratis sent me a video of the door opening and closing, so I know it worked in Holland.

I can hear the motor whirring away, but the door doesn't move.

The schematic is all about electronics so any help in what to look for with a mechanical problem would really be appreciated.

Hi Jeff, Did you ever find a solution to this problem (BeoCord4500 door not opening)? I have the same problem and am also looking for some guidance. Thanks, Robert.

Motor whirring but no lid movement - I'd say the belt has broken.
