Hi everyone, on my beautiful bang and Olufsen 8000 turntable everything works great except the ffwd and rwd tracking if you want to play a different track you can’t use the ffwd<< or >> rwd buttons that move the arm to desired position on record, I have the service manual. All electrolytic capacitors were replace including the hard to replace inside the aluminum box the tranistor TR5 BC557 a pnp transitor also checked on on dvm was still replaced with a new one This did not solve the problem . Can someone help me fix this problem. Thanks sikander in USAJuly 20, 2022 at 1:06 pm #6873spassmakerBRONZE Member
The not responding << >> buttons might fail because of a defective Lightbulb in the pushbutton housing or a broken or loose connection between Main PCB and Pushbutton board (check first)
Often the wires of these Lamps are broken or the lamp itself.
Measure from backside of the buttonboard the lamps solderpoints.
If you measure “OL” the lamp is broken if you measure about 50 to 100 Ohm the lamp seems ok and the error is frome somewhere else.
Regarding to the SM Chapter 5-3 you can measure the Voltage of 620 mV of the LDR´s
( P 5 -4 and P 5 – 6) and try to set the voltage with the screws. If you measure about 1,5 to 3 Volt and you can´t adjust any voltage the Lightbulb is probably dead.
Let us know if you got any succsess.

Hi Christian, thanks for your kind help really appreciate it . I could not find where the lamps are located , this is the model 8000 where the << >> buttons are below it are two large black screws the service manual says these are for adjusting the tonearm drop point on the record . Thanks , sikanderJuly 20, 2022 at 2:18 pm #6875DillenFOUNDER Member
The lamp sits inside the black plastic housing at the backside of the frontpanel.
Interrupters block the light from the lamp to the LDRs when buttons are pressed, and the screws are for adjusting (ref. service manual).
New lamp here.
