  • Re: Beogram 5500 Carriage Stuck – Solved (I think)

    This is a very interesting post! I am just completing a Beogram 5005 restoration. It has exactly the same issue, and I came to a similar conclusion, till Martin suggested this is a common problem, solved by filing down the pin under pully wheel 1604 which snags with 1609. I also cannot fathom out what 1609 actually does, and did wonder if removing it will cause a problem. At the moment it is causing me an issue in that I cannot slide the carriage sufficiently to the left to close the top, and I suspect

    It has been an interesting exercise so far. In an email exchange with Dillen (Martin), he said 1609 very commonly bends with age. Straightening it under heat apparently works for a while, but they bend again. I tried filing down the lug under the pulley wheel which seemed to work, but I thought if it (1609) bends further it will just happen again. I've tried to understand what 1609 does; clearly B&O won't have put it in without a reason, and as far as I can see all it does is limit the

    I would also be interested in an update on this. Note that @Dillen mentioned "liquid bearing" - if this is the same as being sold on eBay currently, it is claimed that this is not what it says it is, but simply motor oil re-packaged (see http://www.slotcartalk.com/slotcartalk/showthread.php?27028-Liquid-Bearings for the whole sorry story)

  • Beogram 5000 Counterweight attachment

    Hi all, Slowly bringing a Beosystem 5000 back to life, with much learned from this amazing forum; Beomaster, Beocord, CD50 all now working, so just starting on Beogram. Question I have is the following: After removing the counterweight from the arm I am left with the de-coupled tube with pin to engage the weight as shown in the first photo; However, this tube pulls off easily and is really much too loose. The second photo shows the decoupling rubbers on the back of the arm. Am I correct in assuming

  • Rubber feet for beomaster/gram/cord 5000

    Hi there, Does anyone know if the rubber feet used on the Beosystem 5000 (and presumably 5500 and others) is available anywhere? Most of them on my 5000 system are gone, and the few still left are rock hard/disintegrating. Photo attached (if it works) Thanks Peter

    Thanks, Martin, your advice is as always excellent. It was the laser block drive motor and gear train which needed lubrication and adjustment. Working great now!

  • Beogram CD50 (5112) repair advice

    Hello, I am restoring a Beosystem 5000. I've got the beomaster and beocord working, now started on the Beogram CD50. Symptoms are: Powers up, accepts CD, but then spits it out again (yes, it is upside down). Closing the drawer without a CD in it sets it into standby, which I think is correct operation. The fact that there is a difference between with and without a CD means to me that CD detector is working. Front panel displays work as they should at this stage. Drawer powers in and out smoothly
