  • BM4400 Restoration

    Hello once again, this time with a BM4400. When I got it, there was no POWER ON light, when a source was selected the OVERLOAD lamp flashed briefly and that's it. Tested and replaced three blown TIP146's and idle current trimmers. Switched on and all was well. Recap was also completed. Couple of issues still need attention - 1. The Tuning Indicator light does not come ON after the recap. I remember it being one before the recap. I have checked polarity of all the capacitors and everything

    Thanks Martin. Yes, I have nothing connected on the headphone socket, Also, I tried disconnecting the P9 connector and no change. The transistors checkout ok. The voltage between R44 and R42 measures at 20V (instead of 15V). I do not see any voltage changing to 0V when mute is pressed. The MCP shows the mute status correctly whenever mute is pressed. Thanks

  • Beomaster 5000 Issue

    Hello again..I recently added a Beomaster 5000 to my collection. (The unit was advertised as "for parts" and completely dead - no standby light). Replacing the capacitors on the processor pcb fixed the standby issue. I replaced the trimmers also and made the adjustments as per service manual guidelines. Current issues - 1. There is no output on speaker 1. Speaker 2 sockets work(kind of..issue 2) 2. There is a lot of distortion (on both speakers) when music is played. Issue 1 - I have already

    All good again. Cable Connector on 9P84 had come off. I assume when I was closing the keyboard it must have got pulled. I had to reroute the cables and problem fixed. Hopefully don't have to open the beast again. Thanks !!

    oh oh...I closed this early... This morning I tried to use FM and am back to same situation as before with minor changes - 1. In both AUTO TUNE and MANUAL mode, only 1 station is being picked up. In auto tune mode that is also inconsistent. 2. I do see the MPX light coming on for some frequencies. Similarly the signal strength meter does go up on some stations. But there is no sound. In auto mode all is silent, in manual mode just white noise. Everything was ok when I replaced 1IC2-CA8139E 2 days

    Thank you for the information John. That's helpful. With this I can mark this project as closed (Better half will be as pleased I am ). It took 8 months but well worth the effort. Learnt a lot of new things on the way. John/Martin - Once again THANK YOU for your guidance/pointers in helping resolve the issues.

    Thanks Martin. Finally !! The problem was 1IC2 (CA3189E). FM works fine now. I also got to see the MPX light :-). Last issue - With volume at 0, I can still hear music from the speakers. Any suggestions ?

    Hi Martin, I had a spare LF353N. Replaced 2IC3 and no change. btw - The symptoms seems to be consistent with the issue documented by you earlier. I have not seen the MPX light come on and silence on Auto Tune. Anything else I can check before trying to source 1IC2 (CA3189E) ? Thanks
