Hi again,

Hi was gifted with a beolink 5000, perfect to cancel a timer on my haunted BS2300.
Unfortunately, as usual, the screen is not well and the user guide (I have in genuine paper, do you believe that?) don't mention how to cancel timers.

Is there an easy key sequence i can press in the blind which will delete all timers on the Beosound?If so could someone tell it to me ?

It's sad to have that perfect condition remote useless because of that screen but on what I read here an here, it's not an easy fix…

Yes, absolutely.

I bought it with the timer programmed to wake up the system everyday at 12h30.
Aten searching and with the help from the forum I understood that the Beocenter 2300 can be timer programmed with a BL5000 or BL7000 even if it can't from the device itself.

Just tested with my 2-way 2300 and BL5000

Try this with the system at standby and the remote quite close to the sensor at the bottom.  Pause a couple of seconds between each press:

PROG

DOWN

PLAY

STATUS

CLEAR

Come back to me if it doesn't work and I'll have another look.

EDIT:  I think that you may have to repeat several times if there is more than one timer set.

Hi Guy,

Thats exactly what I was expecting for, Thank you.

Right now the timer awakes the system everyday minus Saturday.
How many timers do you think it is ?

I'll try right now and will do it 7 times to be sure, but I'll know if it succeed only tomorrow at noon !

Also, do the system respond by any means?

Thank you again.

Could be just one timer with the specific days chosen.

Not sure if the system responds .... sorry

I'll go and have another play with mine.  I will set a few timers and see if there is any difference when cancelling, and if there is any feedback from the lights on the unit.

One other thing:  How can you be sure that the BL5000 is set up for two-way mode for audio? (Which it would need to be for setting or cancelling timers)  (I will have a play and give you the button presses for setting this also.)

Give me a mo ...

I can't. The display only shows some random point, just to know it works but thats all…

Ok, firstly how to make sure that the BL5000 is set up for two-way.

Red Button (Off)

SHIFT

MENU

PLAY

PLAY

PLAY

PLAY

You can do this in a room away from the BC2300 because there is no communication during setup.  Because of this you only need a short pause between commands.

Note that the above will also put the remote in two-way for video commands.  To avoid this, press the down arrow after the second PLAY, then continue as above.

I will now have a play with the timer again.

Further to the above, I think that the BL5000 also reverts to two-way as default if you remove and re-insert the batteries.

So I just programmed my BC2300 with three timer events, and can confirm that the button sequence that I gave last night just needs to be repeated to clear each event.

There is no indication from the BC2300 - the red light remains steady.

One thing that you could try is to view the IR transceiver bottom left of the BeoCenter through a smartphone camera and see if it is sending signals back to the BL5000 whilst you attempt to clear the timer.  You could try this for something simple like volume control first, because if the two-way is working correctly it will send a signal to the BL5000 to allow a working screen to display the correct volume.

Also use a camera to check that the BL5000 transmits for all the button presses that you need to use in the above processes.

You probably need an assistant to hold the camera, and be aware that on some versions of iPhone you need to use the forward facing 'selfie' camera to observe IR.

Thanks for your time Guy,

Before entering with the above sequence I will assume that the remote is indeed in two way mode since it has been unpowered for a long time.
I dont want to enter a wrong sequence or timing and mess it up.

If no one of our attempts work then I'll explore that track.

To be clear, the remote do work (source, volume, tracks, channels) On the BS2300 but not on a BS9000, which i believe, is a sign of two way mode.
