  • Re: Remote Mains Switch Problem

    That's what I need, thanks! I know what description to look for now. I have about two weeks to get this sorted out, ideally. That's when my handyman is scheduled to finish wiring the rest of the house speakers, and I'd like to have them come on automatically with the Beosound.

    Wow!!! I'm speechless, I feel like a teenage girl who's just won the beauty crown! Thank you so much! And here I was just looking at new phones as my Panasonic is dying.

    OK, so anyone know where to buy female Powerlink plug? Edited to be more specific, I can find 8 pin DIN male plugs for the end of cables, and female panel mount jacks. What I need is a female plug for the end of a cable if such a thing exists.

    Now I'm completely flummoxed. Plugging it all in I measure no voltage across the opto, but then I measure no voltage across the PL adapter even when I unplug it from the switch. I pull the adapter, and measure directly across the PL cable from the BS, and I seem to sometimes get voltage and sometimes not, probably due to trying to hold the probes on the connectors (I need to rig up a PL test jig). When I measure continuity across the adapter it measures fine so I have no idea why I'm not

    Well, this gets stranger. The relay triggers with 9vdc, and I tested it with 3vdc and it triggers perfectly. So, I figure it's a connector issue. I check both Powerlink ends of the adapter, both show continuity. So I check the other plug, it has continuity. So I check continuity from the Powerlink plug, thru the two conductor plug that connects the PL to the older Beocenter type plug, all the way back to the circuit traces inside the switch, all good. So, I figure something is afoot at the PL

    OK, here's an update. At work browsing I found a substitution for the H24A2, and ordered a few (0.66 cents each). Before stuffing one in today I hooked a 9 v battery up to the thing, and lo and behold it works, the relay pulls in and the plug becomes active (I had a night light plugged in, you could hear the realy trip and see the light turn on). Now, why did it stop working with the Powerlink when it used to? Is it possible the opto-isolator grows weaker with time, so that it takes 9 volts to

    How did you go about getting them made? And how did you get the lettering done? What kind of shop, and was it one that's done B&O stuff before or just a metal shop? Sorry for so many questions! I really want to do these right.

    I remember reading that in the early days they used cactus spines for gramophone needles.

    Beautiful!are those factory B&O metal covers, or did you have them made? I've had no luck finding any source. I have found this stainless metal film people wrap appliances in if they want to hane their old dishwasher look modern. Might work but I'd have to find some way to get the dents smoothed out as the stuff is thin enough the dents would show through. I really want to get these back to snuff as I want to use them in the bedroom.
