Hi All,

I have recently aquired a mint condition 9500 beocenter, everything works except for the cd which i can hear spinning (and a kind of scraping noise) but fails to read the disc or start the number counter display.

I have cleaned the laser lens but did not make any difference, this is an early model (circa 1986) and am guessing the optical radial laser pickup has failed.

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated or if anyone knows of a good tech. around the Suffolk area would be great.

Thanks, Gary

Just a side note, but the date you're seeing there is the date of the B&O design copyright for the 9000 series in general. Your 9500's BUILD date can be determined via the serial number and is probably closer to 1989 at the earliest. Mine had a new laser installed in 1998, and fingers crossed, these seem to be more robust than those in some of the other B&O products like the BS9000 so once you have it fixed it should provide you with many years of listening pleasure.

The laser in these units rarely fails. It is much more likely to be C2103 on the CD servo board.

If you search the forum and the archived forum for C2103 there will be loads of information to read on the subject.

To replace C2103 will cost about £1 or less and it is worth doing the job before getting involved in much more expensive repairs!

Hi

I am about to take my 9500 beocenter to the service shop having aquired the c2103 philips cap.

This fits on the cd servo board (pcb30) is that correct?

In the service manual page 2-13 the 2103 sits next to2117 and in front of 3105 is that also correct.

Is there anything else that i should make them aware of other than taking care of the glass panels. (i have restuck them)

Thanks!

Gary

Only just realized i did not thank everyone for there help, it was indeed the infamous c2103 philips cap and has been running fine for the last 6 years.

It has however just aquired a new fault, The cd spins and the counter is working properly but there is no sound, after 5 or 10 minutes almost like it has

warmed up the music kicks in and after that it plays perfectly with any cd. 

Any thoughts?Confused

Thanks Gary
