  • Re: Beogram Mute Switch Pop

    After posting on a few other forums, I found an answer to my issue. Turns out my pre amp is leaking current back into the turntable. [quote user="Phil"] Hi Beitie, I think that your phono stage is implicated in this. Either by design the input biasing current is excessive or it may have input coupling capacitors which have gone leakey. DC current is flowing back from your phono stage to the Turntable. When the muting switch is exercised the Source resistance of your Turntable takes a step

    I'll try to make a video showing the situation. Also, the RX2's speed is way too fast. Any idea how to get it back down to proper 33 1/3? *edit* got a strobe, found the motor controls, speed issue fixed. Still have the mute switch pop noise though.

  • Beogram Mute Switch Pop

    Hi everyone. So I have a Beogram 1602 and a RX2, and I love them both a lot. However, both seem to have the same issue, and I'm curious if this is really an issue, or if it's normal operation. I know that these turntables have a mute function so that you can clean the stylus and not have to mute your system volume, and that works perfectly fine. However, when I go to play a record, once that mute switch turns off, I get a loud popping noise. This also happens at the end of a record when the

    I see what you are saying Beoselecta. Maybe before I have one sent to me I should try to swap the one off the bad MCP to the good one. The good one did have some dust and debris in it that I cleaned out with a dust can. Also, while it wasn't perfect, the first one could at times get the volume indicator to adjust. The Opto Coupler, is it the three solder joints that you are pointing at in the picture? Or is it the chip right next to it? ----edit---- After a google search of the Siemens PN, I

    The Beomaster may be at fault for the volume control issues. Admittedly, this is my first Beosystem, and there are things about it that I'll need to learn... So I created a short video to show it off a little and show the issue I'm having. One of the things I've noticed, whenever I get the Master Control Panel's screen on and try to adjust the volume, the screen blinks at me until I stop adjusting the volume. So it very well may be Beomaster related. I'll put the URL to the YouTube

    Update Saturday morning: The new MCP 5500 came in this morning. I was very happy when I put the batteries in, and it didn't immediately change the input to radio :) All the buttons seemed to work just fine, but I was unable to adjust volume. So I took it down to my workbench, opened it up, and took out the microswitch from the control wheel, and cleaned it with contact cleaner and a toothbrush to get the bristles between the contact points and clean whatever carbon might be on it. I put it all

    When I used my ohm meter, the circuit did not have any connectivity that I could find. (Display stayed OL). After looking at the picture again, I can see how there is some light that makes things look somewhat orange. Probably due to my camera, it's pretty old for a digital, and the picture quality isn't up to par. The person who sold it to me texted me back last night saying that he'd refund me that part of the purchase. I've found another on flebay, so I'm just going to give

    It's very true that some of the gear is absolute garbage and they are asking insane prices. Not gonna argue with that. However, I really do think that the Beograms are a fantastic turntable. I now own three and they are by far the best decks I've owned.

    I think a lot of people are very unfamiliar with B&O and don't really know what they are getting into. However, there are also a lot of people gathering up as much junked out B&O items as they can and selling them "untested as-is" and asking top dollar for it! Sometimes they even get it. I've been trying to put together a Beosystem 5500, and have come across some good deals, and some outrageous prices. I'm defiantly over my anticipated budget for the system, but I'm

    So far I've tried the MCP with the black tape over the pad, and with out the tape entirely. I've also cleaned the contact pad with electrical cleaner. Still does the same thing and broadcasts the radio function constantly. I did not notice orange powered? There are no physical sings of battery leakage. It's pretty clean.
