    Hi everyone,

    Audric from Belgium, I’m new on the forum 🙂

    I’m trying to reassemble a beocord 5000 (4715) and realised that the dust cover spring was not properly connected. I have been trying for more than a hour to have the proper effect on the cover, but in vain. Here’s a picture of the spring:

    Does anyone know the effect it is suppose to have (forcing to close or to open?) or a picture of a properly mounted one?

     

    Thanks in advance,

    Regards,

    There are two springs that govern the damped closing of the cover. This is discussed at the end of the service manual at https://beomanuals.com/manuals/Beocord/Beocord%205000/Beocord_5000-Service_Manual-version4.pdf.

    Hi Mark,

    Thank you for your answer!

    I mounted everything back together (using the cardboard strip procedure), but the main spring still forces the dust cover to close, is that the normal behaviour? The 2 small lateral springs are not connected to the main dust cover but to the panel underneath :

    Thank you in advance,

    Best regards,

    Great deck. I have two (that don’t chew any tapes 😉)!

    I did the same mistake on the first one. I steered clear of removing the second one… Good you’ve solved it.

    Funny blue belt, by the way.

    Hi Chartz,

    The blue belt is not genuine, it’s a temporary replacement to test the beast ^^

    The spring is forcing the dust cover to close by itself, is that the correct behaviour?

    Thank you in advance,

    It has only two positions: fully up or fully down. It doesn’t hold in between.

    Have you ordered Martin’s belts?

    I have problem then, because it doesn’t stay open… 🙁

    No, I don’t know Martin :/

    Hello!

    The metal rod must be inserted vertically in the central plastic piece of the dust cover. There is a groove to insert the rod, but I guess you know that. As fas as I know it keep the dust cover open or close. Hope it helps

    Hi Alvar,

    That’s what I did somehow, but the rod forces the cover to close. If I try to have it acting in the other opposite direction (force to open), tension in the rod gets very important, I’m afraid to brake something and not sure the cover won’t open by itself.

    I’m pretty sure the dust cover is meant to close under the spring tension, mine does and I think its normal operation…..lifting the lid manually and the spring closes it ;¬)

    Thank you Craig,

    I’ll live it this way and finish the reassembly.

    Thank you all 🙂
