On an otherwise fully functional Bg 4000 5215 I am getting the following behaviors:-
1) when pressing the ^ button the tonearm does not stay up once the ^ button is released – it just drops as if the down button had been pressed. Same behavior on < and > buttons – is this a keypad problem or should I be looking elsewhere?
2) from time to time the tone arm drops suddenly instead of the normal smooth drop that is expected. This is not a persistent problem.
Just spotted this post justin, picked up a chest infection from soewhere ;¬(
The tone arm dropping sharply sounds like not enough dampoing, try winding the srew in very slightly…..and I would check out the down switch contact…..if its playing up the tone arm will dot stay up when ^ is pressed
Fixed. Thank you Craig and Christian. The down switch contact terminal was oxidized and bent – after cleaning and straightening it works a charm. Tone arm is dropping smoothly now. Sweet sounds are emanating from the deck and its owner. Thanks again.
