  • Re: Beocord 5000 type 4705/4715/4716

    Thanks John. My instinct of course is to dive in and have a go. The electronics are not frightening by today's standard's,just a bit ott? It's much more a mechanical issue I think? I'm encouraged by other enthusiasts experience,and of course I'm not constrained by the same time/cost limitations of a busy main dealer workshop,all those year's ago! Nick

  • Re: 4004 Tonearm Intermittently Returns Early

    The original problem was due to intermittant noise in the photo-darlington device. I think the solution was to replace the device with a different type. You seem to have identified another cause though. One for the gremlin book,thanks. Nick

  • Re: 4004 Tonearm Intermittently Returns Early

    There was a problem with the photo darlington device,and several mod's too,but I'm intrigued by the fact that the problem does'nt occur with another remote control pcb installed? That suggests that the problem is on the original pcb? Nick

    Thanks Craig,you may come to regret that offer sir! I remember that it was deemed at the time that the pressure rollers were culpable. B&O alway's insisted that the machine was designed using BASF tapes,and so was somewhat intolerant of other brands. Our experience was that the BASF tapes were almost alway's guaranteed to chew,whereas TDK/Maxell et al,often worked quite well,but not alway's alas The saddest recollection was of owners presenting us with chewed cherished pre-recorded

    These were probably the least liked machines by Engineers working on B&O during the '70's!! Designed (in house)to be a world beater and to outshine the deservedly popular Japanese machines,it turned out to be a real failure. When functioning fully(rare) they could work well,but mostly they were so unreliable generally,that we sent them all to B&O for repair.They did'nt have much luck with them either,and it all became a nightmare. B&O eventually abandoned them,and resorted

  • Re: Beomaster 6000 display problems

    Contact Martin at Beoparts,he used to(hopefully still does ?)offer a rebuild of the display on an exchange basis. It's crucial to get the correct brightness and uniformity otherwise it will look a "dog's dinner" Nick

  • Re: Beogram 1202 Record End Too Soon

    check the condition of the tooth at the end of the actuating lever on the large cam lifting gear.The lever is pushed towards the grey gear on the turntable spindle by the advancing pu arm.If the lever does'nt engage cleanly,it can cause the lever to "bounce" and jolt the pu arm before it has lifted. Also,check the alignment of the arm.It should be parallel with the right side of the deck when at rest.Loosen the screw under the arm at the back to achieve this,then set the arm dropping

  • Re: Beocentre 2300 connect to Beomaster 5000

    You need what we we used to call a "tape deck configured" 5 pin Din cable,to connect between the aux port of the BS2300,and the Tape 2/aux port of the Beomaster.It will only need to be 5 pinned,as the data link pins are not needed.The data link functions of the two products are incompatible anyway. I imagine that Steve at Sounds Heavenly can sort out the cable for you. Nick

  • Re: Beogram 3000 Type 5228

    Yes indeed,as Martin say's,and I can recommend the Beoparts replacement idler too,as I have one with my '3000. The locking pin is a tapered metal pin that goes through the turntable spindle,it's an interference fit. It secures the turntable against lifting upwards,and also prevent's the grey gear from turning independently.If yours is missing,you could probably fabricate a replacement . The actuating levers on the cam wheel should point outwards,as the tooth on the extreme end needs

  • Re: Beogram 3000 Type 5228

    You'll notice that the grey plastic gear which fit's on the turntabe spindle,has a cut out in it.This should accomodate the fixing pin when in correct position.It is possible to fit the gear upside down,but it will then not engage correctly with the main cam lifting gear. On the cam lifting gear,there are two clear plastic levers.Thes are actuated by in turn,by the start command and stop command.The movement of these two levers is crucial.Too tight,and nothing much happens,or too loose,and
