  • Another day, another Beogram 4000 problem

    Good afternoon, I really do try not to post inane questions about Beogram electronics well beyond my expertise, but today, I think I've earned it: Started the day with a dead 4000, a service manual and a soldering iron, and I'll end the day having made some progress— first up was that the top reed switches (inside 2MS1) were broken, so I replaced them (but not without a problem I'd like to get to in a moment); it now switched on, but wouldn't switch off: this was cured by replacing

  • Surround Module

    Dear Workbench, Is it a common opinion that the performance of the surround module of old (dolby digital), which could be found anything from a beovision 1 to a beosystem 2, never quite had the edge over the stereo Powerlink in the sound systems? I'm not referring to the quality of the sound at the source because obviously a broadcast is nothing like a CD but I've always thought the sound a lot emptier when listening to something through the TV on Speaker 2. I only posted this on the workbench

    D'oh. Thought I was getting somewhere then. I'm going for the solenoid. To respond to Dillen, the one switch I have appears to work perfectly but isn't ever activated as the solenoid mechanism doesn't move in the first place. The mech moves freely by hand.

    Ben, If you've just bought it, don't forget the transport screws on the bottom. PF

    Well, thank you everyone for your ideas. I have just spotted that I have a missing diode, the 1n4004 in front of the coil. It was probably knocked off when the platter was pushed down at some point: It does sit very close. PF

    Press LIST until AV appears on the Beo4 display, then press DVD. The screen will go off but the sound will remain. You can control the DVD player as normal with the Beo4. If you don't have AV on your list: Hold the off button and press LIST ADD? press GO scroll down until AV appears: press GO ADDED AV will now be on the list Is your Ouverture connected to the Avant in any way?

    Thanks everyone, gives me the guts to go and click the frame open again. The mechanism moves without a problem, so I will start going through the connexions around the solenoid. There's no danger of me servicing it myself if things get any more delicate but I would, please, like to know any other causes of this problem and what I might have done to break it. PF

  • Beogram 4002 Tonearm

    Dear Workbench, There are lots of archived discussions on problems with tonearm movement on Beogram 4000/2/4 and 6000s and it seems that freeing the seized lubricated points on the mechanism is the solution, when there is that click of the solenoid. My 4002's arm moves perfectly, senses the record, stops; then I don't get a click or a drop. The only post which touches on this problem says that freeing the mech is the answer, barring 'a serious electrical problem', which seems rather

  • Re: Beomaster 5500 - operation without remote

    Oh go on then, I'll kill this one. Get a Beo4 and, unlike with the Beolink 1000, you will retain command of the much prized LOUDNess function.
