Hi there,

 

I replaced my old Panasonic plasma with a LG C9.

It worked nicely for some minutes, but then I got a black screen. Switched back to the old tv, black screen. My Beosystem 3 9606 was gone. The diagnosis I received was a dead FPGA chip in the PCB5 board.

 

B&O support told me to trash my BS3, as no spare parts are available, but I managed to find a donor equipment that had a power supply problem (also no fix for it from B&O).

 

Not believing that the new TV caused the issue, as other devices connected to the same HDMI port shows no problem, I tried it again. Stupid! Now I have to find another PCB5 board...

 

I'd like to ask if anyone has successfuly connected a Beosystem 3 9606 to a LG C9, so that I can confirm that there is no software/firmware compatibility issue, increasing the chances of this beeing a hardware problem on my side...

Do check if your home insurance cover electrical faults.

Mine did when my BS3 shorted, and I received a good clump of money Smile

For a few weeks  connected a BS3mk3 (with hdmi outputs) in combination with a GX65'. BS3 has 2 PUC's. One for switching on the GX and 1 PUC for controlling. Works well, not flawless (sometimes panel stays off or keeps on when shutting off the BS3). All controlled by a BR1.

Hi Dante, sad to hear this. I do have a C9 55inch connected to a BS3 type 7710 for some months. No issues until now!

Meant positive, or starting to have issues?

The 7710 already has HDMI outputs, right?

My BS3 is MKI and has DVI-D outs, so I'm using an adapter.
