  • Re: BEOMASTER 1001.

    Hello Rozel The 2 ohm speakers should be connected in series in order to achieve a combined impedance. Connecting them in parallel will give 1 ohm which could damage the amplifier. I doubt this is the cause of your problem but you should rewire them to prevent damage to the amplifier. Richard

  • Re: It Lives !!

    I fitted a new prescaler and the BM5500 tuner is now fully working I gave it a complete set of caps whilst it was on the bench and the sound improved quite a lot. Much crisper high notes. However the audible "pop" when you switch between inputs is still there and it is also there as you tune between FM stations so I guess that means that there

  • Re: It Lives !!

    The tuning problem only affects FM and is caused by a defective SP8629 pre-scaler. My local shop has DS8629 on stock which are marked as equivalent. Does anyone know if they are really equivalent and will work? The chip looks like it has been getting hot for a while and the previous owner hinted that the radio did not work before the power surge killed

  • It Lives !!

    A quick update. With the two new chips the Beomaster shows signs of life Using a cassette player as a test source I get the expected output for all remote input sources. However, when switching between sources there is a noticeable "PLOP". Further investigation required if it still occurs after recapping. One segment of the left hand 7 segment

  • Re: BM5500 fault

    Thanks for all the replies. There was no ALE so I replaced the CPU (local shop has exact replacements) and the MM5450 will hopefully arrive tomorrow. I have also replaced the small elcos on the PSU, CPU and display boards. All voltages look ok. It was the BM5500 off markplaats but rather than struck by lightening I just think it may just have been the

  • BM5500 fault

    Hi I have just brought my first Beomaster from the BM5000, 5500, 6500, 7000 series. It was brought defective but it is in white which means it matches much of my other B&O. When you apply power, many of the LEDs on the front panel illuminate together with one segment of the frequency display (always the same ones). There are no sounds from any relay

  • Re: BM 8000 CPU: cut traces?

    I have seen this fault on a couple of the BM8000's I have restored and in both cases it turned out to be the U264B frequency divider. The frequency would appear fixed at one end of the frequency range or the other (87.50 or 108.0) but if you spin the tuning dial quite quickly the frequency would start to move and then go all the way to the other

  • Re: Internet access from BeoMedia

    Does NetRadio work? If it does then the box thinks it is registered. If it does not then you need to go through the whole process with BeoPlayer etc Richard

  • Beomedia 1 questions (and an interesting finding...)

    Hi I have just bought a Beomedia 1. It was faulty but that is now solved (new caps in PSU and DC-DC converter) and I have spent a day or two playing around to see if it is worth keeping. I performed a factory restore and then did the updates. It is now at Software version 3.02 & OS update version 3.05 Q1: Who provides the OS updates? B&O or

  • Re: Beomedia internal wiring - can anybody help?

    [quote user="Beobuddy"] Nope, it is the digital audio from the mainboard to the PCI board. Watch in the corner grijze tule and in the middle on the PCI board grijze tule. [/quote] Thanks very much
