  • Re: BM8000 Shutdown noise

    Hi Martin Thanks for the input. I actually intended to get both of the amplifier boards upgraded first as part of my refurbishing program, so the fact that this is an amplifier related matter is good news for me. I was a bit concerned that if it was a power supply issue, I might end up damaging any of the good work on the amplifiers. In the meantime

  • BM8000 Shutdown noise

    Hi everyone I have noticed that my BM8000 makes a terrible noise if I switch it off at the mains too quickly. Sounds like a capacitor discharging directly through the speakers. As long as I switch it to standby and then wait for three or four minutes there appears to be no problem and all you hear is the gentle click of the relays. However, if you switch

  • Re: MX7000 and Link PC

    Hi PhilLondon I have a very similar set up over here, BV7 and PC in the main room and MX7000 in the link room. So far, I have never been able to get access to the PC from the link room, so I just considered that it wasn't possible. I will be waiting with interest to see if someone does have a solution but from what I have read it does seem unlikely

  • Re: Beocord 9000 fast forward

    To remove the circlip is fairly straightforward, find a screwdriver that will just fit in one of the two holes, wrap your fingers around the clip to stop it flying everywhere and give it a sharp turn until it releases. Don't let it go until it is definitely off otherwise you can spend a few hours looking for it. At the moment I have no ideas on

  • Re: Beocord 9000 fast forward

    Hi Friedmett If you are saying that your machine is unable to FastForward and yet the motor and the two pulley belts are running OK, then there is a good chance that you have the same problem as I did. To fix it is fairly easy, especially if you have done a belt change before. I am not sure how different the 6000 drive is but on my machine, all I had

  • Re: Heat from BM8000 heat sinks

    Thanks Martin. This morning I managed to find a supplier of a suitable mains capacitor, class x2 and have fitted it. The BM8000 now seems to be working well but no doubt something else will crop up soon - such is the nature of these old amps. As for the trimmers, I should be able to source some locally but they might look a bit different to the existing

  • Re: Speed selection on Beogram 1102

    Hi chrisbiscit I think that you will have to revert to the manual mode that you outlined. According to the original instruction manual, the following options are available: 30cm records - Press 33 17cm records - Press 45 25cm records - Move pickup to first groove and press 33 Special 17 cm records, 33rpm - Move pickup to first groove and press 33 Hope

  • Re: Beocord 9000

    Hi beodim Yes, they are around but it is usually a case of waiting for one that is conveniently located. I got one last week, but as it was here in Australia, it wouldn't really have appealed to you. It was in a dirty condition but cleaned up very well. All belts were stuffed but once these were replaced and the deck lubricated, everything worked

  • Re: Beocord 9000 fast forward

    Spot on Martin.... I took it apart for the fourth time (don't know how many more pulls on those terminal blocks I will get) and had a good look at the freedom of movement rather than just the movement itself. The small jockey wheel seemed to be moving a bit too slow when released and obviously didn't quite make its final position before timing

  • Re: Heat from BM8000 heat sinks

    Thanks Martin, I always appreciate your advice. I will be replacing the trimmers as soon as I can source some horizontal, 100ohm items which are pretty hard to get over here. Can you use a higher rating such as 200 or 250 ohm if the 100's prove too hard to get. They will be less sensitive but should work?? One item that has cropped up since the
