  • Re: MX6000 Dead!

    Immense thanks to Solderon29! After some tennis messages - he correctly located the problem - which could be another common fault. After checking all caps - and other components it was found that tr33 was shot. Having replaced this - and powered up - another arcing sound and the set then just displayed a vertical line in the middle of the screen. Solderon29

  • MX6000 Dead!

    It's been coming for a while - and today it happened! I've been hearing an arcing sound coming from the TV for a while now. Perhaps once every few days - a few small arcs which spiked the picture - then normality. However today it arced a few times and then died I'm fairly competent with electronics and certainly competent with a soldering

  • Re: New House - Pentalabs Sound Awful!!

    Does anyone know what carpet underlay would be best for absorbing / in turn augmenting the lower frequencies? I am not sure whether heavy rubber waffle (130lbs) or the thick but much lighter PU underlay like Cloud 9 Cumulus 11mm - or even the even thicker wool type which it seems have the best thermal (3+tog) and impact acoustic qualities would be better

    [quote user="Friedmett"] How do you connect Beolab Pentas to a 5500 which has no powerlink sockets? Do you mean Beovox Penta? [/quote] I use the pre-outs on the 5500 straight into the labs line level rca input. Tha labs are set to auto sense. That way I can use high quality cable and phono plugs. I don't bother with the displays. I'll

    OK - I've carried out some experiments... Ditched the CD5500 and hooked up my PC via the beomaster 5500 using Winamp to play FLACs. I've managed to get something resembling low frq's by boosting the 31.5hz EQ slider the full 12dBs! This however overloads the woofers no end to the point of them reaching the ends of their excursion and buckling

    My new house is only 300 yards down the road and I was ultra careful about moving them in my car wrapped in duvets. I've checked the connections - all OK and as before. When I increase the bass on the 5500 - it does increase the higher bass output but not in the lower registers. I think on the 5500 the bass boost is centred around 100hz which I've

  • New House - Pentalabs Sound Awful!!

    Hey folks I hope someone can give me some advice... I have just moved to a new house and I was initially excited about the prospect of hearing my Pentas in their new room. Previously they were in a room approximately 14ft x 13ft and they sounded awesome. I have them hooked up to a system 5500. The bass was fantastic and detailed - with superb extension

  • Re: Workshop CD5500 CD6500 CD7000 Reparatur Laser Controller Servo Platine

    Hi Martin Thanks again for your advice :-) I think though this CD5500 is well and truly had it! I might try to find one in not so good cosmetic condition and transplant the innards from that into this one. TR10 - TR11 and D15 all checked out fine. IC2 is boiling hot - but not if I remove J90 - it is cool and without J90 connected the motor spins up
