    What Are You Working On Now ?

    A BeoCenter 9000. First thing to do is getting the processorboard up and running and after that see what else is wrong......

    Actually nothing since I got my Dirigent working! I'll return to it however in a while...

    Next one in queue is a safety checkup on the Beolit 41 - it works suprisingly well, but a peek inside revealed some horrifying wiring. After that I'll probably finally recap the CD4 decoder / RIAA board in my Beogram 6000. The Beolab 5000 pieces need attention to bring out their best. Not to mention cleaning the Beolit 1000 and finding an antenna for it that at least works, even if it didn't look proper.

    Nice idea for a thread!

    Hi, 

    nice work! 

    Right now I am wiring my new city apartment (Living room, bedroom, office, kitchen) not only double cat 7 but also ML as I have lots of ML cable left from the old one. 

    Moreover I would love to integrate everything like light, windows, heating, BEO but I am still looking for the right solution. Busch Jaeger seems to be very close to what I am looking for.

    Yes I think so as well = but I would like to see some film with all this. Next up is a finishing  a Beogram 3300 CD that I half rebuilt last summer.

     

    Until this morning I hadnt touched a thing in a couple months - been painting.  But the Beo-Crack is hard to stay away from.

    Right now I'm testing my second BM6500 as number 1 started to smell of something burned and then only switching on for a second before swithching of. It lasted 1 1/2 week working great otherwise.

    Number 1 had had bad outputs and several other faults due to some former "repair" which Dillen cured.

    Number 2 had a dead cpu among other things in that it brought with it. Dillen fixed it up and it works great/faultless so far. I got this one by chance for not much so why not.

    Number 1 is now at Dillen and I await the fault diagnose for it.

    Re: What Are You Working On Now ?

    I bought a Beomaster 1100 (very cheaply) that was supposed to have a problem with the radio. When I powered it up however, one of the 0,39 ohm resistors between the output transistors "let out it's magic smoke". So something is wrong with one of the power amplifiers.
    I noticed that the previous owner had replaced the three large capacitors and the one that filters the supply voltage had come loose in the shipping. Could this have caused the burnt-out resistor? The output transistors seem to be OK. I resoldered the capacitor and replaced the 0,39 ohm resistor but it didn't help. So I suppose I need to check every component in that power amplifier.
    The Beomaster is in exellent cosmetic condition (after thorough cleaning) so I suppose it's worth fixing.

    My Beocord 3300 needs a new deive motor. All thwe switching sequences are correct and the solenoid drive the gear clutches as they should. Power at the motor is 14.6 VDC, but no spin. Bums me out - I was hoping to slide by on a simple cleaning and belt replacement.

    I am getting ready to put the CD 3300 back together after replacing the belt and recapping the decoder and servo boards. I also replaced the tray lamp.

    Re: What Are You Working On Now ?

    (Perhaps we could keep this thread simply as list of projects going rather than component-level discussion?)

    Eugene: your BC3300 looks much like my BC2000. I had troubles with the motor, too. There was some bigger resistor near the back grill (on the bottom PCB) that caused troubles, but I think it caused over-speed so it might not be the case in your BC. Anyway, have you tried the speed adjustment on the motor? There is a variable resistor (and some other components, one or two electrolytic caps, too) inside the motor housing, the speed.adjustment is under the black plastic cover (next to the white sticker) on the top of the motor, you can slide a small screw-driver through and turn the adjustment. You can open the motor housing a see if there is something wrong.

    In my case the adjustment didn't work and the speed was always too high. I got a replacement motor from Dillen.

    My next project is fairly simple. Changing my old AV7000 with a beosystem 1.

    After that, I'll change the front L/R speakers in my surround setup from CX100's to beolab 2500's .

    Re: What Are You Working On Now ?

    What a great thread :) Interesting to see what fellow beowlorders are currently up to :)

    I am going to add a twist. I am working on a Beogram 3000 which has had a real rough ride in the past, so can you guess why I have had to strip the arm assembly down so far?

    Where is the tone arm ?

    Finally got around to recapping the sevo and decoder boards on my $27 Beogram CD3300, plus a door belt I boght off Dillen. Seems to be working just fine now whick is 100 percent better than what I started out with. Pretty much an electronic train wreck. Nothing worked and I mean nothing at all.

     

    This just arrived today and most everything works fine but the tape. A few of the LED's are out on the selection side of the display panel. It sounds really nice on a set of S-45-2 (early uniphase).

    Re: What Are You Working On Now ?

    The tone arm is there, but the sensor arm was removed to make life easier (easier to remove than disconnect!).If you look at the lower end of the horizontal pivot system, you can see the fulcrum point has snapped off it's mounting! That must have been a heck of a knock to the arm and amazingly, apart from the platter, there is no other damage!

    Nice 7700 btw, looks in very good condition!

    Re: What Are You Working On Now ?

    For me it's a Beogram 4000 at last.Cool

    Before that a 4002.

    My Beovox MC 120-2.

    And before that a Nakamichi-killing Beocord 9000!!

    Now, how will my Beogram 4000 fit into my Beosystem 6000? Will it replace my 8000?

    Stay tuned!

    Re: What Are You Working On Now ?

    Actually I have a pair of BM 2400's that need a recap. I was going to open up the BC7700 to have a look at the cassette to verify rotted belts and give the thing an overall visual inspection ... but I went Xmas shopping and ran other errands all day.

     

    ... and now I am sketching up a canvas or two for yet another "art" project

    Re: What Are You Working On Now ?

    Here's what I've got lined up:

    BeoCenter 9300 repair - replaced the CDM12 laser, and now upgrading all the signal path capacitors.

    BeoMaster 1600 - replacing the 4 main TO-3 output amps with MJ15003, restringing the tuner, and doing a whole bunch of rewiring.

    Arcam CD72 - complete rebuild.

    And my own BeoMaster 3400 - I've designed a modified circuit for the stereo lamps and indicator bulb - I have to install it and test it.

    Mika, before you buy anything for your BG6000 CD4 upgrade, you contact me! You've helped me so much in the past, now it's payback time!!!
