I've been told that the photoresistor used with the bulb and shutter for controlling the tracking of the arm on the BG8000 (and the BG8002?) is no longer available.

Is there a source for these?

If not, is there a 'work-round' for controlling the arm tracking another way?

I've tried searching old postings here but haven't found an answer.

It would be a great shame if these impressive turntables are one by one to become elegant paperweights when they can no longer play records.

Not quite an answer, but this might help.

I tried the photo resistor he mentioned (gl5549) but it was difficult to adjust correctly. It turned out my lamp was worn but not dead so I replaced it with an LED as mentioned in the beolover post and was able to use the original photo-resistors.

So, these are fixable.
