Dear BeoWorld.

I have inherited a Beosystem 2500 from my mother, who wanted something else.

The CD-laser isn't working, but who uses CD's these days anyway.

But annoyingly the doors doesn't open. And there isn't much about a Beosound Ouverture, when it's a Beosound Fermé... Whistle

My diagnose skills ain't that good, but I can see and hear that the door sensor is working. When I approach the unit, it lights up and I hear knocking sounds, as if the doors are trying to open, but is blocked.

I have searched the forum, but I haven't found someone with the same symptoms. Does anybody have a clue, what might be the issue? Confused

This BS2500 needs a service. There is a sensor to be cleaned and adjusted. Cable flow needs checks.

Where do you live? Possibly forum buddies can advise you here where to go in your area.

(have you considered connecting a multimedia hub for audio and internet radio streaming? Controled by an APP to make the BS2500 young again?)

Hi,

If you can hear some life inside your device when approaching the hand then it may be not as worse as it seems.
First thing is to remove the glass doors and check how the system behave without the glass weight. If it works, its likely bad lubrification or a worn belt.
if it still dont work it's a more deep issue like sensor, motor, electronics (luckily didnt ever go that far!) 

I always recommend :

- First, clean and lube the rails,
- If not enough, check belt.
- If not enough or as precaution if you feel it, check door align as show in the thread above. But it need full disassembly.

If it still dont work it's above my competence.

You'll find several topics and "how to"  for step 2 in this forum, you can search by my name.

Hi Robert

How do i clean this sensor? The cable wires for the door mechanism seems to be fine :-)

Hi Steffen.

I followed the guide from top to bottom, and when i plugged the unit in to the power socket i smiled at first. The doors opened up again as they should. But i couldn't get them to close again :-(.

It could be a problem with the motion sensor :-/

Hi Matador. 
What kind of lubrification would you recommend?
I tried taking of the doors, to see if that made a difference. But that didn't seem to be the case :-(.

I use a silicon spray found on any workshop warehouse and apply it with a Q-tip.

I dont know if the door opening but not closing is still a sensor related issue. To me the sensor is here to sense the hand. The closing is on timing.

Last thing you can do to see if it's a mechanical issue or not: put the glass back and "help" the door with your hand when they have to close (i think it's 15 sec.). If they dont move at all it should be a "not mechanical" problem beyond my knowledge.

good luck.
