Craig - there’s a member of the Facebook B&O group I’m a member of who has replicated the aluminium trim strips for the 400X / 6000

Not sure if you’re on Facebook but can email you the link if you’re interested!

Thanks for that, the guy has been in touch actually.....and when I get this sorted I will look to the cosmetic side and definitely be in touch with him ;¬)

In the meanwhile I discovered I don't have a bridge rectifier or any 2000uf 15v caps so they are now on order....this evening I decided to remove the 2000uf caps ready for the replacements and discovered this lurking underneath......

Measured up the nasty looking one and found it woefully short of the mark at a mere 20uf...……..

just as a check on my meter, it wasn't the most expensive piece available, I measured up a new 4700uf cap....

I'm hoping replacing these little  fellows along with a new bridge rectifier, and I have already replaced the 6.8v Zener, will go a long way to resolving my 6vdc power rail issue

Made sure everything was well insulated, still got everything pulled apart, and powered up.....and finally after what has seemed an age of frustration, compounded by incomprehension, I am rewarded by a start up on 33rpm....with the speed change over manually to 45rpm operating just as it should! this feels like a major victory to me...I was beginning to despair over the stubborn refusal of the control logic to perform despite everything appearing as it should......glass of wine is the order of the evening, will progress over the weekend, for now I'm going to enjoy a rare moment of smug satisfaction ;¬)

Had I achieved what you did, after all that, I venture to say it would have been a bottle of wine, as opposed to the more restrained glass of wine. Salute!

Replaced the remaining big caps, I've held them in place with a spot of epoxy until I can come up with something more permanent......
