    I've had a couple of problems with one unit - mainly because they have lapped the globe a couple of times and had some pretty dirty 240v supply at times.

    Instance 1. - replaced an internal fuse.

    instance 2. - replaced the chasis (GBP250)

    There is also quite a bit of labour to get at the internals

    The only option is to call your B&O service dept.

    Ok.. i have checked the fuse and sadly its not broken :(

    Then i guess its the chasis... do you remember how much that costed to change?

     

    So i know if i should take it on my insurrance or just pay B&O myself.

    Sorry, meant internal fuse, not the one associated with the power cord.

    as you said, you have tested that.

    first fault - there was a loud "pop" on night and the LED was completely extingushed. Fuse change by B&O Hanoi. Cost more to lump the thing to their workshop.

    second fault - The LED blinked Red/off every second indicating a protection fault. That was a GBP250 chasis board change.

    considering they are now 7 years old (IIRC) and have been to Indonesia, UK, Ghana, Turkey, Vietnam, Central Russia and UK again, I think they have faired rather well.
