  • Beautiful Old Kit - Still Soldiering On, but Needs Help Please!

    I have a Beomaster 5500 (connected to the full 5500 system of Beogram 5500, Beogram CD 5500, and Beocord 5500) all controlled by a Master Control Panel 5500 and driving Beolab Penta speakers. I've had all since new, and have experienced very few problems over the 30-odd years that I've had them. However, the Beomaster 5500 has developed a problem. I wonder if anyone can help please? I was recording an old vinyl LP from the Beogram to the Beocord tape deck and everything was working normally

    Found the Audio/Video switch on the bottom of the Penta thanks Peter. (They're Type 6622's). It was set to "Audio". Tried twiddling it back and forth - it moved quite crisply and smoothly - but unfortunately the display remained dead!

    Hi Heminex, Thanks for your suggestion re the Audio/Video switch position. I'm not aware of this switch on my Pentas. The opening front panel exposes three switches. These are: INPUT LEVEL switch (3-position - I, II, or III) MODE switch (4-position - OFF, AUTO, L, or R) BASS EXTENSION switch (3-position - I, II, or III) Is the switch you mentioned inside the unit somewhere? If it is in there somewhere, I don't think it can be the cause of the problem. The display just stopped working one

    Many thanks Peter. I appreciate your prompt response! You suggest getting a "Repair Kit" from Dillen on this site. Afraid I'm a proper Newbie - How do I raise an order for the proper type of capacitor with Dillen?

    I'm an engineer (unfortunately not an electronic one) and long-term B&O afficionado. I've a Beosystem 5500, Beolab Penta and various other Beovoice speakers, and a Beovision Avant television. All still function reasonably well, but suffer from minor faults which I would like - if possible - to fix (or have fixed). Given some knowledgable guidance, I'm quite handy with a multimeter and soldering iron. I'm hoping that some of the more expert members of Beoworld may be able to point
