Hi All,

I recently obtained a Beomaster 6000 Quad (2702) from ebay in non working condition. Geoff has helped me open it up and he gave me a lot of general advice (thank you very much!), so I had a look:

 

I posted more pictures on my blog (http://beolover.blogspot.com). The last several entries focus on the 6000. The good news is that the unit seems to work electronically as far as I can tell.

The damage report so far is this:

All five belts are gone.

The coupling between motor and potentiometer assembly is deteriorated.

Many light bulbs do not work.

The signal strength meter does not work, even if the tuner has a strong stereo signal, and the S-lamps are bright and equally lit.

The tuning 'string' has a knot in a position where it bothers the motion of the frequency indicator belt.

The tuner wheel pulley is broken out of its bearing, i.e. it came out with the wheel when I removed the nut at the bottom that holds the shaft in the pulley:

 

It appears there may be a part missing that connects the pulley to the bearing.

The front speaker jacks have lost their wings that hold them in the cutouts of the chassis:

 

Any help and suggestions regarding fixing these issues (and some spare parts...;-) would be much appreciated!

Best Regards,

Rudy

Another great video tutorial.  Thanks!

Regarding the Beocord 5000, I have read where people claim that deck starts to eat tapes when it gets out of adjustment. Is that something that is fixed with new belts? Or are there other adjustments that are necessary to make sure the BC5000 doesn't get to that point (of eating tapes)?

Hi John,

I've got two, and so far they haven't damaged and tapes in two-three years!

Good to know. I don't recall my BC5000 ever eating a cassette tape but I haven't used the deck since 1982. That is the deck I plan on rebuilding.

Thanks

As I said...it almost worked...;-). When I tried it out after replacing the belts, it turned out that there was a problem in the electronic switch that made it rewind very slowly, and caused inconsistent Auto Stop and Pause functions.

Maybe now it is time to try making a record!

I will eventually get an BM6000Quad for refurb in two month.
It does scare me to change the belts considering the risc of destrying those clips, as I have no possibility to 3D print

Anyone else with experience of these clips ?

Dillen, have you had trouble with the clips in the process of exchanging the belts ?

No.
But that's probably because I don't squeeze them so they break.
