I have lost the power supply to my Beosound 5 Encore and am wondering what to do.


Is there anything I can use as a replacement or can anyone recommend where to get a new one?

 

Thank you very much!

Sadly B&O discontinued the power supply years ago. Extremely difficult to find as its specifically made for the Beosound 5. I suggest you try and find the one you had.

Way back in 2014, the PSU was already discontinued nd there is no stock anywhere!

 

You may be able to put one together with two PSUs - one 30v/0.7A and one 7v/0.5A. The 7v line is used for standby.

 

Not sure about the connector to the Encore though - I haven't seen it!

May be more difficult than you think. I am sure you can find suitable power supplies for each of the voltage requirements, but the issue will be controlling the off/on of the supply. Note the PS_ON signal on pin 4

It’s a good question. Would be useful if someone who actually had one put a meter on that pin to see what voltages it ran at. I hope it isn’t a ttl voltage otherwise it could be a data line.

Thank you for your help

If I were to use the two PSUs together, you pointed out that the PS_ON signal on pin 4 would be an issue.

Do you have solutions or suggestions for this problem?

It is a voltage. 6.3 volts is the on state..

interesting. So joining pin 3 & 4 may make it work.

Eh, why?

The PS-on comes from the Encore which triggers the 30V PSU. No data on that line. None of the PSU’s used in B&O products carriers data on the PS-ON. It’s just a trigger/state for switching on/off.
