  • Re: Beogram 2000 won't stop!

    Hi Tekni, Thanks for your comments. I'm no technician but I did solve the problem of the Beogram 2000 not stopping when pressing the LIFT button (updates were given in a new post). I'm not able pinpoint the exact cause but as I recall I did 3 things. 1) Ensure the micro switch below the LIFT button assembly was set correctly (in accordance with the service manual). 2) Re-seat all the wires that go into the white multi-connector adjacent to the motor (including the capacitor). 3) Reset the

    Hi Nick, Thank you, yes it was fiddly to do but I'm happy with the end result. Sods law says I will now find the original spring, but it hasn't shown itself yet. I have plenty of surplus sprung wire which I will keep in case someone here needs any. I did do the motor bearings for the reasons you give. I was a complete newbie and it was my first job. I was fortunate in receiving lots of help from Martin (Dillen) and others. In fact I took the motor apart twice and feel I could now do it in

    Hi Martin, Found a conventional bulb (surprised I still had one). Checked platter speed again and was able to adjust to the correct speed via the side wheel. Many thanks, Carl

    Finally!!!! Hi All, Found time this morning to tackle the making of a relay spring. Took 3 attempts but eventually I was happy with fit. Fitted spring and tested deck - 'shock horror' I still had the problem where the motor would cut out as soon as the pickup arm lowered onto the record. I re-adjusted the relay contacts because I discovered the top contact was not making a connection when the service manual said it should, i.e. in relation to the position of the top armature when located

    Hi all, quick update - unfortunately the spring offered above was from a different deck with different internals. So I will proceed with trying to make a spring. If in the meantime an original spring is found and offered then great. Rgds, Carl

    Thank you. I’m planning to visit Munich next year but we won’t wait till then (smile). Yes shipping costs can be high but I didn't want to be presumptuous on how much you wanted for the spring, plus I’m not sure what the shipping costs would be to the UK. I’ve noticed most people prefer to discuss these matters directly so would you be happy to do that. If yes then my email is cralt@me.com. Rgds Carl

    Hello Schletti82, Thank you for getting in touch, welcome news indeed. Would you consider selling the relay spring to me? Regards, Carl

    Hi Martin, I'm very relieved to hear you're not annoyed. I'm not usually a sensitive sole but the brevity of your replies made me wonder. I always suspected you had a lot on your plate and with hindsight I can now see you were querying if you could provide better photos. Please accept my sincere apologies for my misunderstanding. I won't misinterpret again so be as short and to the point as you want. Thank you for the effort you've put in looking for this spring. I know from my

    Hello Martin, Yes the link you provided was extremely helpful and I replied thanking you. I missed the link pointing to Alex's photos that you provided first time around. Not sure if the link was late arriving in the message but for some reason I missed it. You pointed me back to it and I did see the photos and the missing spring - which was extremely helpful and I replied accordingly. I apologised to you for missing the link. I wasn't sure however what this spring actually did but thanks

    Hi Nick, Thank you for that explanation on purpose. I can now fully understand why my turntable, without this spring, is behaving so erratically. Thankfully Martin (Dillen) diagnosed this spring was missing else I would never have known of its existence. Goodness knows when and where this spring was lost, but I'm reasonably certain is wasn't in situ when I started my renovation a few weeks ago. An extremely thorough search without success adds to my feeling that it was probably lost long
