    Hello all, after a a period of some months, I tried to play some records on my Beogram 4000 with no success. The tone arm does not move across! I removed the aluminium plates and I saw that the motor doesn't turn. I measured the voltsge on the cable motors and is 0 Volts? Do you have any idea about...

  • By The Hand Of A Two-Year-Old

    I have been delighted with the interest my 23-month-old twins have taken towards playing vinyl in the last few weeks. I come home to the likes of the Residents, Robert Fripp, Repo Man soundtrack, Fugazi, Sade, Talking Heads, Les Paul & Mary Ford playing on my (our) Beogram 1800. "Dada play record...

    Ahh, good as new! I am glad to find that the belt did the trick. My 1800 plays like it did when it was new. Knowing the contacts on the open switches are also taken care of for the time being is an added bonus. Again, I wanted to post here, as the original posting topic matched the symptoms I had with...

    Next, I proceeded to clean the open switch in the near-right quadrant... Same process as above. Clean the open side first: Flipping this switch to the opposite position is accomplished by lightly pushing the white lever as shown - again, using very light fingertip pressure. Next rotate the aluminum platter...

    Thank you for mentioning the open switches, Dillen. I replaced the belt before I saw your post and the results were positive, but decided to go back in to do your recommended cleaning. Here is how I accomplished that cleaning process... ** PLEASE NOTE - I am posting this here, because I had been experiencing...

    Side-by-side comparison of the 24 year old belt (was it REALLY 24 years ago???). OLD belt TOP, NEW belt BOTTOM. I used push pins here to illustrate difference in length, due to the rubber relaxing over the years. Belts are taught enough to be straight, but not stretched: The results from replacing the...

    I received the belts for my 1800 from the Ebay source today. I put one in the turntable and the other in two zip-loc bags and tossed it in the freezer, so the kids can use it 24 years from now... Here is how the belts came from the source:

  • Getting a Beogram 5500 serviced in the UK?

    Hello all, Can anyone recommend someone in the UK to service a Beogram 5500? Do dealers touch Beograms these days? I also need to get a preamp which someone told me I could get from Maplins. If anyone could point me to the exact preamp I need that would be fantastic as I have no idea what one looks like...
