Hi,

I have hooked up the Beosystem 3 to a Beovision 4 . When powering up,  a green LED on the Beosystem is on for 30 seconds and then switched OFF again. At this time the Standby RED LED on top of the TV (Link eye pcb?) is lit steadily on. 

My problem is that I am not able to switch on TV and don't know if I have a fault or not.

Pressing any button on the Beo4 remote makes no difference.  

What I did so far after carrying  this heavy beast to my workshop!

* Replaced IR sensor (used a TSOP7000 455Khz). I have checked pulses with the scope and seems responding to Remote .Tried  also to connect a seperate IR-IN using 3pin jack plug as described here:http://www.beoworld.org/beotech/ir_eye_wiring.htm

* Switched ON the TV with a panasonc remote control (from the hidden slot bottom of TV).  Tv is working fine. I have connected my laptop and I can see the picture fine through the DVI-D Iinput. 

* Checked serial cable . pins 2-3-5 to pins 2-3-5.

* Checked IR-In ( RS232 connector) to Link eye PCB. I have continuity through all pins. 

* Left units hooked up overnight on standby just in case needs registering ?? not sure if makes sense but found it on manual.

I am really stuck now.  

I have learned that there is a pin code and master code, but I assume that a menu should appear on screen  where I can see what I am doing.  Thee is no o/p thorugh AV1 or AV2.

Last: Where can I get furhter technical support ? 

Any type of help is welcome!

Have you checked that the BS3 is not i Option 0?

Grab your Beo4 and press "standby" and "list" at se same time. Now use the up/down arrows to go to "Option?" and press "GO". The display now says "V. Opt". Point at the IR and press "1". It should now flash a single time.

Try to turn the TV on Smile

I will try it later today as I am currently out. However very anxious to try it out and let you (everyone) know the outcome!

Thanks a lot Casper.

Unfortunately both suggestions didn't work out. Tried a crossed RS323 link and also V.OPT 1 as Casper suggested :(

UPDATE:

I have found that I have some video output from AV1 and AV2 scarts only. There is a timer like icon for 30seconds and then a messaage

...

ALCUNE INFORMATION DISPONIBLE SUR LES PROGRAMMES

....

E SIGNAL EST FAIBLE OU PERDU, VERIFIEZ LES CONNEXIONS

and unit goes to standby.

I have uploaded a short clip on youtube to describe better.

I think I have made all necessary connections from BeoSystem 3 to BeoVision4 RS232, DVI-D and IR-IN.

Any clues about this message?

The clock image is the BS3 booting up, I think the message says there is no signal i.e. no antenna connected or no ability to receive a TV signal
