    What is the motion sensor?

    UPDATE: Deck two, the "working deck" will play a tape for about 4 seconds and stop. Repeatedly. Exchanged mechanisms and the same thing happened, so probably not the mechanism. MAJOR lubrication reduced the tension on the motor 90%, but the problem continued. Back to deck one, the DOA deck. Reassembled it and now it EATS tapes, repeatedly. I must have played a dozen of tapes previously with NO tape crunching. But now, from out of nowhere, it is destroying my tape collection. Soren never

    Hi Soren, Jacques, John, and Peter, This is not going to be quick or easy. First off, I made a collage of mistakes, too numerous and embarrassing to name. However the missing shield is needed to protect wires NOT the circuit board.Sorry about that incorrect information. One thing is for certain, NO one would ever employee me to repair their Beocord 5000. Missed lubrications corrected, the pressure on the motor was reduced at least 90%. A few other goofs adjusted, and I thought I was good to go. No

    [quote user="chartz"] Yes the cap has “reformed” but leave the deck unused for some time and it will do it again. Do check wiring, lamps and caps. [/quote] Hi Jacques, holy crap, I suppose you are right. Sigh. The plan, if I can be so overly charitable, is to get into the second deck, the one that worked flawlessly, if noisily, and see if shielding the circuit board restores full power to the motor. If it does, I have a completely functional Beocord 5000. Back to the first one

    [quote user="chartz"]Sound coming up progressively as the deck warms up clearly indicates bad electrolytic capacitors. I think you should start here Jeff. Then the STOP lamp should be replaced. I guess that will restore normal operation. Good luck with that! [/quote] Hi Jacques, The "improvement" in the right channel volume was a ONE-time affair , in the beginning. Now when the Beocord turned on, the volume is normal and correct, immediately, and every time . As for the STOP lamp

    Hi Jacques, Doing just fine, thank you for asking. How are you kind sir? I kinda, sorta lost interest here when the site stop sending email notifications that someone had responded to a thread. Soren had asked me to "come back," and with me clearly over my head with these two Beocord 5000's, I am here to see if I can't get these two decks fully working. As an aside, I finally got all my "crown jewels" together, for the first time. The Beogram 4000 had been in the media

    [quote user="Peter"] I definitely don't underestimate the 4400 - or the 4401 in particular! [/quote] Oh Peter, how you love that black fascia panel on the 4401. I agree, it looks nice, although I haven't ever actually seen one. I just got my 4400 back from John Worley's remarkable restoration. John is a perfectionist and it really shows in his work. Jeff

    Jacques, I was hoping someone would mention the Beomaster 4400. Remember mine? The abject disaster with all the NOS caps? Well John Worley did an AMAZING job on it and now if performs the way it should. One VERY positive oddity, after the rebuild, John noticed, as have I, that running at near FULL power the 4400 runs COOL! We are talking tepid, if that. Thank you Mr. W!!!! Jeff

    [quote user="Peter"] The thing you must remember is that the Beocord 5000 is a real B&O device. It was built to be superior to every other deck of its time and the engineering is fantastic. The problem is that it is like a vintage Ferrari - when it works it is sublime - but it goes out of tune just looking at it. If you think of what it was up against when released you will realise how incredibly advanced it was. As was the matching Beomaster 6000. So good luck to each and every one

    [quote user="chartz"]Hi Jeff, John, Søren, Nick, Phew, what a nightmare! I’m here, always. But all those threads about newer products just don’t do anything for me. Plain boring. Like you Sir I have two of those as you may remember, but I didn’t come across any of the problems you are now facing, after all those hours spent trying to fix them. My two Beocords still work fine (I make sure they do, from time to time) and although I always dread the odd tape-chewing
