  • Re: Beogram 6500 odd sound

    I know I raised this ages ago but I have only just got around to getting the screwdrivers out. I now know exactly what is causing the noise I just need to know how to stop it. The indicator arm is the cause, by applying pressure to the side it stops the noise, it appears to be dragging. I've lubricated the sliders but still it "bomps" each time it moves. Is there an adjustment that's out ? Any ideas ?

    The transit screws have been where they are for about 25 years an this noise has been around for about 6 months. I'm guessing that probably rules them out.

    Having watched the arm closely I'm pretty sure the noise coincides with each movement of the transport arm (rather than the cartridge arm). This brings me back to my first thought that the slider rail needs lubricating. However the movement is so minute it's hard to be 100% certain. Think I'll try again

    I replaced both belts with ones I bought from Martin. The frequency is most, but not every turn of the deck.

    I was really hoping that would not be the answer, 3 years is a pretty poor return on that investment ๐Ÿ˜”

    I've looked at the height adjustment and the vinyl is clear all the way around so that does not appear to be the problem. I have taken the cartridge off and the suspension seems smooth in all directions. I know vinyl is rarely perfectly centred and the arm has to "ride" up/down left/right with the track but it appears to be this movement causing the sound. I'd try and live with it if is were only audible between tracks but it can be heard through the music and obviously gets louder

    Hi Nick, It does it right from the start on old vinyl I've played many times. It doesn't look to be touching but I'd say the clearance is less than 2mm. Where are the adjustment screws you mentioned ?

    My record deck has developed an annoying additional beat. Its almost as if the record is scratched except that the noise is a light thump, not a click. It sounds like someone is tapping the deck whilst it's playing. I've replaced both belts with B&O belt bought from Martin and lubricated the slider, I've also made sure it's completely level but still it persists. The cartridge was rebuilt just 3 years ago by Axel with a Shibata diamond stylus and has been used regularly but not

    Hi Martin, don't know I've been hoping someone would point me in some direction before I start taking it apart. Pin 20 on the main ribbon ? Any idea what voltage I should expect ?
