I was recently given a Beogram RX. It's in good condition and works, but the dust cover was not attached. It appears to have all of the parts, but I can't manage to get it assembled. I've searched the forums some, but am not having much luck on finding anything specific to RX. Was wondering if anyone can help guide me through the reassembly process? Here are some photos of what I'm looking at:

Dust Cover Parts... Mounting brackets, screws, clips, etc. Not quite sure what the two silver metal pieces in the lower left are for or where they go.

Here assembled from the back

Here torsion spring position

As I see it you will have to assemple the cover and back plate, with the 3 plastic pieces, the 3 screws and washers, in open position, before attaching the whole to the deck, with the 3 steel plates and screws, the 2 chromed pieces must be guide pieces for the torsion spring where the torsion spring make contact with the back plate when opening and closing the cover, probably in the corners of the back plate.

We like to help, dont be a stranger now, and tell us to what you connect it and how it plays, in my opinion, the RX and TX deck are under evaluated and under appreciated, and welcome to the forum.Laughing

Thanks for the welcome!

I have it connected to a Pioneer SX-535 receiver. The receiver was my dad's and the turntable was my uncle's. I also have a pair of Bose Model 31 floor speakers (from the mid-90's). I just got everything setup today and am really happy with the sound. The turntable operation is very smooth. Here is a photo of the setup:

Cant say I know the Pioneer, but I like the design, maybe you get a little hooked on B&O and someday gets yourself a Beomaster 2400, and a pair of Beovox speakersBig Smile

I disassembled the same dust cover on my RX 5 years ago for reasons I do not recall.  With the aid of your post, I was able to reassemble but I cannot figure out where l-shaped strips go.  My unit has 3 of them.  Would you be so kind as to look at your lid and advise where they are located?  

The tension on the lid is just slightly less than required to hold it open.  Any idea how to adjust tension?

Hi Soren,

I have the exact same issue presently, however your photos do not appears.  Instead it just says photo not found.  Is there any way you can post these photos again?  Thanks so much for your assistance.  I have 3 of the chrome pieces and that is the one thing where I am unsure of there placement.  David

HI Soren, this is like a crazy puzzle to try to put together!!  Do you know the steps involved?  Not sure how to do this with the spring loaded up and the back plate in cover in place to be able to put the screws for the plastic tabs in.  Help! See my post at bottom of this thread to. Thanks, David

HI Joe, did you ever figure out how to reassemble this?  It seems like a crazy puzzle to put back together, being in the same position as you were.  If you could tell me the steps that would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks for any assistance.  See my other posts here.  David

Here is a diagram I found in the 1700 service manual that matches the RX. Hope this helps!
