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…

Guy:

and can confirm that the button sequence that I gave last night just needs to be repeated to clear each event.

So thats "stream" of 5 keys, right? Is there something I need to do, or time i have to wait between each round?

Yes, just press the 5 keys one after the other.  Wait a couple of seconds and then repeat.

If you do check the BC2300's IR transmitting, it should look like this when the lights flash:

And hold the remote quite close to the receiver because I have noticed that it is quite sensitive to distance and direction.

Ok, i'll try this afternoon and come back Monday, because Saturday there is no timer. All the days but Saturday Big Smile.

This older posting talks about the Beolink 5000 user manual, and on page 20 of the PDF in the link there are instructions on reviewing and deleting timers

https://forum.beoworld.org/forums/t/23224.aspx.

It may help.

Thanks Stoobie,

The manual refer to action following displayed messages. Thats why I need a blind sequence…

A shame the display can't be fixed, this remote ans particularly the one I have is in a so perfect condition, I would like to have it working.

So, all you want to do is cancel the timer function, right?  I seem to recall this trick:  When your Beosound 2300 is in 'standby' mode, press the 'mute' button on the Beosound (not remote).  That should cancel the timer (if I recall correctly)

Good luck....

Hi MediaBobNY,

This is a common misunderstanding: pressing mute when standby, just mute the speaker but keep the timer active.
If in standby, the Beocenter turns on if but the speakers keep quiet, If on playing any source it switch to the timer programmed source, in my case, radio.

Hi, Guy

I've entered the sequence several times in a row with pauses in between.
The BC2300 sensor did indeed react (visible from the naked eye) as follow:

PROG - No flash

DOWN - No flash

PLAY - No flash

STATUS - Flashes

CLEAR - Flashes, wait 3 sec and new stream of flashes.

I'll report after 12h30 Smile

^ That's the same flash sequence as mine - and I didn't realise that it is just visible with the naked eye!

Fingers crossed for 1230! 🤞

Didn't work today.

I will wait the whole week to see if it only cancelled some ones…

A thought: Perhaps the BC2300 was set to RECORD rather than PLAY at 1230hrs every day?

This is a bit more complicated to clear, because there are more options depending on whether you are recording to A.TAPE or V.TAPE - and of course this assumes that system was part of an interconnected system in the past.

I am guessing slightly, but I think to clear an A.TAPE recording timer, it would be as follows:

PROG

PLAY (Edited - I got PLAY and DOWN reverse when first posted, sorry)

DOWN

STATUS

CLEAR

And to clear a V.TAPE recording, it would be:

PROG

PLAY

STATUS

CLEAR

I have tested the above A.TAPE recording timer clear with my BC9500, and that sequence works.  It seems to function the same on the BC2300, but obviously doesn't find anything when I press STATUS.

Then if i follow you well :

I may first try :

PROG

PLAY

DOWN

STATUS

CLEAR

Meaning like initial scenario but with the correct sequence?

And if it dont work try the second sequence?

The "recording timer" makes sense! I mean who awakes avery day but saturday at 12h30? Big Smile

Anyway. I will enter the sequence tonight and get back as soon I get a result.

Thank you Guy for the time you're spending on this !

For clarity:

 

As posted on 18 Jun, to cancel a PLAY timer the correct button sequence is:

PROG

DOWN

PLAY

STATUS

CLEAR

 

But given that this didn't work, I am guessing that there is a RECORD timer set.

To cancel an A.TAPE record timer, the correct button sequence is:

PROG

PLAY

DOWN

STATUS

CLEAR

 

And to cancel a V.TAPE record timer, the correct button sequence is:

PROG

PLAY

STATUS

CLEAR

 

So given that you have tried the first sequence and it didn't work, try the second and then the third sequence.

Of course, depending on the state of the internal battery the clock on the BC2300 may be incorrect if it has sat unused for a while.   Hence 12h30 may not have been the original intention.
