    Beosound 3000 - B&O Repair?

    Hi All,

    Despite Peter very kindly uploading the Beosound 3000 service manual for me, and my subsequent own efforts to fix the doors (the have become mis-aligned, and the also the wire which controls them has come off its wheels) on my Beosound 3000, I've had to admit defeat. So I rang my local dealer and was informed that they charge £50 just to look at it.

    My question is: is this common practice? I fear I could end up paying through the nose for a repair!

    Thanks

    Pretty common! Why not ask Tim Jarman to have a look. It will mean a bit of a trip but he will do a good job. Contact him at Beocentral.

    Prices for B&O repairs are like the prices of B&O products...

    This is quite usual in my experience. It is more of a deposit than a charge and will cover the first hour of labour charges. £50 an hour is about the going rate.

    Roundhay Leeds charge £75. This comes off the final invoice though.

       I always think it is no use having it as a none working bit of kit, bite the bullet and get it sorted. Then enjoy it for a few more years.

    I had the same in the US as well. They charged a minimum fee which later would be taken off. To figure out what is wrong is often half the work on the way of fixing it.
