    Has Martin finally cracked it?

    They are quite easy to replace so definately worth buying one in need of a tacho discSmile

    Re: Has Martin finally cracked it?

    I fitted my new, shiny tacho disc a few days ago. The surgery was annoyingly tricky: not fitting the disc, but removing the hub assembly. Actually, the fitting was easy - the reassembly was the problem, due to migration of the mounts of the suspension of the deck assembly, which fell off every time I tried to close the case. Steady hands, good light and thread to hold the springs in place temporarily all help. Children can be a distraction, but are useful for retrieving small parts which have fallen on the floor. Reassembly completed, comparison of the speed stability of the 'gram 8000 with the old disc, the new disc & with my 8002 (which has a metal tacho disc as standard) was made by recording a 300Hz tone to CD: the 8002 & rebuilt 8000 are equally stable, the difference with the old, cracked celluloid disc is obvious even listening in the car when driving! "Dillen" has indeed 'cracked it' & deserves our thanks. Now I only have to sort out the arm on the 8000, which lifts off unpredictably, then I can decide whether I prefer the 20-series cartridges or the MMCs! Adam Kimberley.

    Re: Has Martin finally cracked it?

    With regard to the arm on your 8000 lifting off unpredictably - I have the same problem. It's in for repair at the moment - I shall let you know the remedy and cost.

    Cheers

    Re: Has Martin finally cracked it?

    The sudden shutdown or CPU reset (because that's what it is) is a sign of processor instability, most likely caused by bad capacitors and/or bad solders. I've seen too many Beogram's deemed "irrepairable because of a dead processor" but, luckily, the truth was different. Grab a cap kit and check the solders, especially around the edge of the PCB where the connectors are.

    Martin is far too much of a gentleman to mention this so I'll do it for him.

    Cap kits can be obtained from him and very good they are too as they come complete with excellent easy to follow instructions. Very well priced so it won't be a lot of wasted money if it turns out that the problem lies elsewhereSmile
