  • Re: Beogram 8002 repair

    Mostly when I plug the BG in the display shows the . and when I press play it says 33 (not 33.33, only the first two digits show). This is what I call 'on'. I can change it to 45 with the 45 button. No respronse from the << or >> or other buttons but this makes me think the buttons are connected. After a while the display dims out. sometimes when I plug it in the display has . . . displayed. There doesn't seem to be a pattern. I replaced the push in connector of the buttons

    The +/- 15V are not there whether play or stop, something is blocking the power supply regulators from coming on. I tested TR21 in my transistor tester, B=224, Vf=635 which seems fine to me. TR6 and TR19 also tested good. I could test the others later. I measured +5V on P6-3 when on and +4.9V when off, the pin connected to 'reset' on the processor. Should this pin be 5V under all circumstances?

    Hi Sonavor, thanks for the answer! The time it takes to fail differs greatly, it doesnt get better when it has been standing. Unfortunately I haven't had time to work with the BG till today. I've been measuring and reading your BG8002 thread. The problem now is the table turns on, shows the red dot, the buttons work, but won't start the TT, just change the display. No response from platter or arm. When I measure pin 4 of connector 6 (on/off signal) I get 0.736V when off, it becomes 0

  • Beogram 8002 repair

    Hello all, I have had a BG8002 as part of my 8000 system for about 4 years now I think. Unfortunately it started acting up some time ago: not starting, showing 33 as soon as I plugged it in, just erratic behaviour pointing to the common problems of bad caps and or connections. Some caps were already replaced by the former (very knowledgable) owner. I replaced the rest of the old caps. I resoldered and cleaned the connectors on main and processor PCB and every other bad looking joint. Worked fine

  • Re: Eliminating noise - Sony TV to Beosound Essence

    See this thread: http://forum.beoworld.org/forums/t/13950.aspx A DAC will also work, the hum/noise is electrical. Using an optical which uses light as a signal will not let this hum through but you will lose volume control because the TV's preamp is bypassed.

    I am glad it worked, and great that you posted some pics. Enjoy the CD3300!

    It's the cap (black and white block) between pin 5 of p73 and pin 2 of p72 on the PCB diagram. Looks like it is soldered to the connectors, probably on the underside as you say! Do let us know if replacing it solves your problem.

    Checked the service manual: its the 68uF cap on the lid motor PCB.

    I've had this problem with a cdx2 years back and posted about it on the old forum. Member Ipaul years later, after I already sold the CDX2, mailed me the solution he found. It was a blue philips electrolytic capacitor associated with the hinge motor that goes bad. Replace it and you should be fine!

  • Beosound 5 & Windows XP sound quality?

    I was just wondering about beosound 5's sound quality. I stream music from my PC to my B&O system. In the days I started with B&O and serious music listening I used a windows XP PC for streaming and I remember that when I upgraded to windows 7, sound quality improved noticably. I researched why and found that windows XP kernel mixing downgraded audio quality a lot. WIndows 7 was made wtih a better audio mixing kernel. I later discovered ASIO which totally bypasses the entire mixing and
