  • Re: Beogram 8000 on the way...

    I haven't checked the voltage on the control panel photo resistors mainly because I'm not sure how...yet! I'll check out your 8000 project for more guidance: When I press Play and then either <<>> the tonearm stops and the platter speed selection buttons indicate 33.33 or 45.00 Also, I now realize that the tonearm assembly came up too easily because the rear right plastic 'hook' was also partly broken. so now the tonearm is held firmly onto the rails with just one

    Ok, some good news and some bad. I put the machine back into the service position. I wanted to check that the tonearm was sitting correctly on the threaded spindle etc. It seemed to be, but disturbing it once more I broke a small piece of plastic off the front part of the tonearm that rests on the forward rail. I don't think it will terribly impede it as there's enough plastic left to still guide the arm. I have the piece, not sure if it can be 'glued' back on. I did that the wrong

    The main shaft on mine looks like this: somewhat different.

    Yes, you're right, the hum is the motor trying to push the tonearm forward beyond the spindle. Plugged in again today and it hasn't gone back to its rest. A transformer bringing it to 100v made no difference either. I bought a digital multimeter, have never used one before but I guess I'll need it to start trouble shooting. I need a break from it today, maybe I'll find some time tomorrow to get it back into the service position. I really want to get this thing up and working in the

    On plugging it in once more, the tonearm moved all the way over, but it won't move back now and stop won't function. The only way to halt it is to pull the plug but then the tonearm is stuck there. There's a slight humming sound as well.

    Yeah, I knew in my gut I shouldn't have put it all together. Strange, I've just plugged it in again and it's behaving better. 1. Red standby dot displays 2. Turn does not function. 3. When 45 is pressed it displays 45.00 4. When 33 is pressed it displays 33.33 5. when I press play, the platter turns and the tonearm moves a cm and the light comes on, then the display goes completely blank. Actually, the machine is not behaving so differently than when it arrived. Although, the + - buttons

    I plugged it in and disappointingly though not entirely surprisingly there seems to be a fault. The display flashes 33.33 intermittently and then goes completely blank, it switches to 45;00 when I hit the 45 button. the platter spins automatically. There seems to be no life from the tonearm at all. I guess I'll have to open it up again...urghh. Thanks

    So, that's everything done. Just one thing, in Martin's kit there is a 2,2uf spare. There's a note '2,2uf - Mount Radial or Axial type according to the original. but I have this spare 2,2uf radial now. I've gone over the chart and everything seems to be in place. Anyway, what would you say is the next step? Here are two pics of the board, from both sides; Thanks
