Ages ago I posted in the old forums how to fix a Beolink 1000 that has suddenly stopped working and I thought it was worth repeating (along with a new diagram to help).
You simply take out the batteries and short the + & – terminals. A piece of wire or a paper-clip will do the trick. You won’t see or hear anything happen but it seems to reset something in the remote.
All I can say is it worked for me and at least 3 others (who confirmed this in in reply to my suggestion on the old forum post.) And a few more in the most recently archived forum when I posted again.
Another handy trick to see if any remote is sending out the IR signal, is to point it at a digital camera (mobile phone camera) and press a number button (they always output IR) and you should see the emitters blink red/purple in the camera screen. (works with all IR remotes). You may need to use the selfie camera on an iPhone.

sadly this didn’t work for me so still looking for a fix. its a mark 2 beolink 1000 and it had a broken positive wire from the battery housing. once I replaced this I did get a flicker of life from the LED’s but didn’t operate my Beomaster 3500. i pressed a few more buttons and thought i’d check with the camera again and this time no flicker from the LED’s.
i have it stripped down and i’m getting around 4.5v from the batteries, just nothing from the LED’s
