  • Re: Beomaster 8000 Restoration

    Looks like I we may have found the culprit. I was checking on the crystal oscillator X2 (the one on the left) and trying to see how to take it out. I poked on the 3 vias right above x2 (with a plastic spudger). And decided to try one last time before removing the CPU/Display boards. The system came out of standby on the first attempt and I tried on/off combination many times - worked fine. Connected a source and let the system run for about 3-4 hrs..No issues since then. Looks like everything works

    No Sonavor. I haven't reached out to them as yet. I will try speaking to them on Monday.

    Thanks Sonavor..Yes !! I did see the post about the new PCB. Am sure many folks will be waiting for that one. Initially, the 5v regulator/capacitor were an issue. Replaced those and 5v problem was fixed. Now it's stable at 4.9v. Other than that only other thing I checked was the voltage for display PCB, which was ok. I did try a Beomaster Terminal remote. The system only responds to the remote when not in "hang" state. Which is again pointing to the CPU board being a problem. I will

    Thanks Sonavor, I did call Freeman-Tuell . They said that if the voice coils are frozen then they wont be able to do anything and they were not sure about the cone also. Maybe I will ask them to "try"..worst case I am down by shipping fees.

    Finally am back on the project. On the positive side I fixed the unresponsive tuner dial. Replacing the OP240A fixed the issue. (same as the volume sensor module - https://beolover.blogspot.com/2018/02/beomaster-8000-repaired-rotary-volume.html). Added Beolab 5000 speakers to my collection. So the BM8000 works well .....only when it works. Issues - 1. There are times it wont come out of standby..pulling out power and plugging it in again fixes the problem. Takes couple of retries sometimes. 2. When

    The 6.8mH coil arrived and the size is similar to the original coil. So both the crossover boards are good now. UPS was good and approved my claim. So the MS150 speakers are "free" for me now. Need to replace the surrounds on the 10" woofers and they will be good. 8" - Both of them were frozen. I followed instructions on Sonavors post (https://forum.beoworld.org/forums/t/638.aspx?PageIndex=4) and was able free up the voice coils. John - Were you able to use the restored 8"

    I did get some time today to open the second speaker and the crossover PCB. The 6.8mH coil is 40mm x 39.5mm. So the closest match is - https://www.tme.com/us/en-us/details/fc-6.8mh-vs/audio-coils/visaton/3704/. Ordered and hope to get it in 7-10 days. The round trip from UPS after insurance inspection has done some more damage to the crossover PCB. 1 trace was broken rest everything seems to be ok. Am worried about the weight of the 6.8mH on the board will cause more damage. Will need to figure out

    Thanks Chrischi. The 3" speakers are fine, it's the 8" speaker that's damaged. But thanks for the info. Happy holidays !! Sudhir
