Servicing the BeoCom 6000 is very straight forward and most dealers are equipped to do it, and all parts can be easily replaced with minimum fuss.
However the same cannot be said for BeoCom 2. Other than software related issues and a battery change, dealers have no way of servicing it and should you damage your BeoCom 2 it will be necessary to order an exchange handset – this is not cheap!
What are the chances that I can either…
find the part number, find the part and replace it myself
find someone who can?
I think I once stumbled across someone who did a “complete” refurbishment (new track point + display), but now my Google skills seem to evade me…
I have also a Beocom with broken joystick. Not that many people out there that fix that issue. You need to tear down the whole phone and that is not an easy task. There was a UK guy on eBay that offered to do that work but it was too costly for me.
