Pulled it apart & checked the solenoid, both coils appear to have continuity, so I don’t think it burned up.

Also removed & tested diodes 3,4 as they are in the solenoid circuit. Both tested good.

Very impressed with how serviceable B&O makes their stuff. Clear labelling on the PCB’s, and hinged cases for access. I discovered the lid support wire at the back, which is convenient. I had been propping the lid up with a hook screwed into the wall earlier.

Connector P6 is the most awkward thing I have ever seen though. By the time I wriggled it off, I had to resolder all the connector points under the board since some of the pins came loose.

 

5500 turntable still won’t power up.

 

Am I posting this in the wrong section? Surprised no one has replied? Has nobody here repaired one of these before?

 

Thx
