  • Re: Master Control Panel 5500

    That would be a good start, yes. I like that idea. However, I think the problem is deeper than that. Even with the button removed from the MCP, and black tape covering the push pad, it still constantly spams the radio function. I'm not really great at putting YouTube vids into my posts, but I'll try it again. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KnNXIOYf6mU

  • Re: Beogram 1602

    Finally something I can help with :) Okay, so the 1602 suspension uses three(3) flat head screws to put the suspension into and out of Transit mode. Removing the platter is easy, just pick up on the outside edge and lift it off. Sometimes it feels like it's a little stuck, but just give it a few wiggles and it should come right off. Then you'll see the 3 screws, can't miss them. Turn them counter clockwise to put the suspension into transit mode. Turn them clockwise to use the deck normally

  • Master Control Panel 5500

    So here's another thread among many where someone (I) am asking a question about the Master Control Panel 5500. My problem is: The radio button is stuck. The remote constantly broadcasts to turn on the radio function and nothing else. I bought the MCP used, and after opening it up, it's obvious that someone has been messing with it. There was a piece of black tape over the spot on the board where the radio button is suppose to contact, and the "bubble button" is missing completely

  • Newbie questions (BeoMaster 5500)

    So I'm somewhat familiar with B&O, but there is a lot that I don't know. I own two BeoGram Turntables (1602 and RX2), and a pair of BeoVox S45 speakers. Recently I found a BeoMaster 5500 for sale, and I'm very interested in it. I know all about the DIN plugs for the speaker connections and the other B&O devices. My question is: Do I need the Master Control Panel or the Beolink 1000 to operate the receiver?

    It's been a while since I've posted, but that's because I don't have a great update as of yet. I did receive the Opto Coupler from Beoselecta, and I spend a night working with my Dad who was an electrical engineer for many years taking out the old one and putting in the new one. When I got back home and tried it out, the MCP worked the same. Still no volume control. I did purchase a good working Beolink 1000, and I use that with the MCP for now. It's not the most ideal situation

    I trust that Beoselecta got a good part and everything.... I have not tested pulses yet, mostly because I haven't re opened it up and looked at it since I put the Opto Coupler back on. I know I should, just been really busy with other stuff. Also, I kinda messed up with the Beomaster, when trying to clean the mute relay. It came off the board, and I burnt some of the solder points pretty badly. So now I've got even more of a project :( Sorry this is taking so long, I'll try to get more

  • Re: Master Control Panel 5500

    Thanks to Peter, I now have a fully working Beomaster 5500 again, and a fully working Master Control Panel 5500 also. I took my equipment up to him today and he was able to fix my mute relay issue. Also, we pulled out the MCP and gave it a good look over, and he found a spot where some battery acid had wrecked a trace on the board. With a little extra soldering and some jumpers, it's now fully working like it should be :) Thanks to everyone on these forums, it's been a huge help!

    [quote user="Weebyx"] The hardware to secure the amplifiers and feet to the base, are much longer than 5cm... You can see them here. The first are secured to the speaker, then you slide the amp along it, and again under that, you attach the feet and secure the 3 parts with bolts. http://www.ebay.ie/itm/5x-Bang-Olufsen-Beolab-Penta-Screws-Bolt-Rod-Threaded-/181511810408 Each penta needs 5 pieces.

  • Re: Beomaster 5500 + CX 100

    [quote user="jamesjudder"] you guys are so nice! Thanks for that information Andrew. Why wouldnt the beolink 1000 provide volume :D? So i guess ill go for the beomaster 7000 then. There is a nice pair of beovox rl 60.2 for 120€ here around in white. So i think ill go for them and a beomaster 7000 what do you guys think?[/quote] The Beolink will do volume just fine, it just can not toggle the "Loudness" on or off. For some people, that isn't an issue. Loudness is kind

  • Re: My Beolab Penta's (questions and restoration thread)

    So after a few emails to Martin, I've found that this is a very early model. Also, I was incorrect, the broken pieces of the crossover are not magnets. So it looks like my best options are to find other sets of crossovers. Unless anyone knows how to get new parts for these?
