  • Re: Beolink 5000 E-Ink screen repair / mod

    [quote user="lausvi"] I'd be interested in one kit for sure! Just checked my stash and I have three BL5000's: One nice one where I got the LCD mostly working by heating the flatflex (display still has missing lines, but it's readable). One externally good one, with LCD with a small crack (and lots of missing lines), missing battery holder One beat-up unit with completely ripped out LCD, worn-out buttons etc. Perhaps I could build one Ok-looking from the last two, and with your

    Hi Filip, Indeed it is possible to avoid the blinking effect, but this requires obtaining some configuration data from the manufacturer, which I am quite sure I cannot get from them for such a low scale project. Some other E-ink displays comes from the factory with the proper configuration to allow "fast" refresh (without blinking), but I could not find one with the proper dimension to fit in the BL5000 casing. The E-ink display used here comes as a piece of glace about 1mm thick, which

    [quote user="Guy"] I also have a spare SW1.3 (CONTROL version) board that I could send if you wish to experiment further. It's from a BL5000 that is in very poor condition (but working without display) hence I can't guarantee that 2-way works. I'll send the whole remote FOC if it is of use. [/quote] That would definitely be very helpful, that way I would be able to confirm the compatibility with SW1.3 (including the CONTROL indicator that never lights up on my 2.0). I'll

    Hello, I'm back from holidays ! [quote user="Guy"] Having just replaced the capacitors and restored the 2-way IR [/quote] Had to do the same. Fun story, when I first completed this mod, I was deeply disappointed to only get "NO CONTACT" on the display, and was about to give up, thinking that my BC2500 was maybe not compatible with the BL5000 two-way comm. After some time, I finally spotted the caps leakage on the BL5000 PCB, replaced them, and actually got two-way comm. Anyway

    Thank you again for all the additional information. My BL5000 SW is VER2.0. At the time I cannot assert that my mod will work with all BL5000 SW version, so I'm thinking it maybe best that I perform this modification myself on remotes with a SW version not yet confirmed to work, that way I can fix my firmware immediately to get it working. I am about to go on vacation, so I will be quiet for about a week, but don't worry I'll keep working on this when I'm back

    I'm happy to announce that the LINK indicator(s) are now properly working, and so should the CONTROL indicator. Thank you very much Guy for your help on this issue !

    [quote user="Guy"] After pressing LINK, the LINK indication shows up as soon as a source button is pressed. The source has to be pressed within about 3 seconds of LINK. If I then press LINK again, the Source indicator (eg SAT) disappears but LINK is still visible. The remote does transmit when LINK is pressed on its own (I checked with a camera). Yes, even without IR contact. [/quote] It sure does not work with my mod ! Thank you very much for your feedback ! I'm good for another few

    [quote user="matador43"] Bonjour Pilatomic, Congratulation on your mod. Yes there is a lot of BL5000 with faulty display including mine, I gave up trying to fit when I discovered the ribbon was just broken. How difficult would you consider modding the remote and is the cost worth the operation? Thanks and Bravo again. [/quote] Currently I would say this mod requires proper electronic skills, especially very fine pitch soldering / desoldering, and is quite time consuming. I'm still evaluating

    [quote user="Guy"] [quote user="pilatomic"]CONTROL and LINK indicator might be wrongly mapped, since I cannot test them. Can someone tell me when they are supposed to light up ?[/quote] I just checked with my fully working BL5000 (with both BC9500 and 2-way BC2300). (EDIT: Note that my BL5000 is the version that has CONTROL in place of the CLOCK button.) I can't get CONTROL to show up on the display no matter what I try. I think it may only show with a Beovision when using

    Hello Steve, Were you able to find a supplier for the top glass ? I am able to install another (E-ink based) display, to restore 2-way operation ( see this thread ), but my repair relies on the top glass being in good condition. Regards
