Hi,

The nurse who takes care of my wife inadvertently dropped the Beo 4 on the hard floor.

Keyboard/display are OK but the IR diode doesn't seem to work anymore as the Beosound 9000 doesn't respond to inputs. I then tested with an other Beo 4 (normally used with an Ouverture) and everything is fine.

So I am looking for a repair centre that can fix it by replacing the IR diode. Any advice ? (I am located in Belgium but could ship abroad)

Or maybe should I just buy an other one on eBay ?

Thanks anyway for an advice.

Hi,

Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with the remote. Have you tried simply resetting the batteries?

I hade a Beo4 without display that you can get for parts. So you just need to move your working display over to it. Send me a PM Smile

It is super easy to do work on the Beo4, so you can do it yourself with some guidance Big Smile

Thanks for the hint but I had already installed fresh batteries to no avail.

Note: I waited until the display went blank to make sure the capacitor got fully discharged before installing the batteries
