I've recently moved house - and my Beogram 6500 has blown two fuses. It was working when I moved in, but every night when I come home the turntable won't power up and fuse blown. The first time I replaced fuse it played fine all evening.. but then tonight I come home and the new fuse is gone. Is this a power / surge issue in my apartment block.. or something problematic with the electronics?


any advice appreciated!

Friday evening and Beogram reparation time Smile So this evening I replaced TR6, D2, D3 and D4 and with that the BG6500 once again works fine and also noticed that chassis bulb (10IL1) also worked again (I did also previously replace TR3-TR5).

While on it, I also replaced the 10uF on the motor PCB including replacing the motor suspension rubber bushing which was quite try and was easy to deform by applying some pressure to them. Thanks Martin for getting these manufactured including helping out with several other parts.

Also thanks to Menahem who helped out with cap-kit for the PCB1 and PCB2 including the RIAA board which is next up for re-cap and fixing.

It's a pity that there isn't any karma button in this forum, since both Martin and Menahem would get a lot of +1 karma if it would be possible; so thanks to both of you taking the time to support the Bang Olufsen community!!
