I’m fettling a Beocord 8004 currently. The biggest headache has been trying to work out where the mystery leftover spring sitting on my workbench after the belt change came from! At this rate, I’m going to have to pull the mechanism out of my own 8004 and do a side-by-side comparison.
I’m also trying to acquire two new relays for a Beomaster 8000. RS have had them as “due in stock March 2022” since January, so I’ve been waiting patiently. They duly appeared, I put my order in and the stock went overnight – now showing “due September 2022”.
Luckily I’ve found them at Digi-Key but had to sneakily order them through work…
I thought that I would re-start this thread on the ‘new’ forum, if only to do a quick test of posting photos ????
I recently got hold of a DVD1, which I presume is the more recent Type 4621. Although there is no B&O label on the back, the rear socket layout matches the manual for the 4621 so that’s good enough for me. Anyway, on testing it played very well but occasionally there was a slight resonant (plastic) vibration. I opening it up and noticed a missing screw in the front of the tray mechanism.
Keith has added the photo to the first post (after my photo uploading problems)- you can just see the missing screw hole in the mount nearest the camera. I think it was missing from new, as the mounts internal thread had either stripped or slipped down. I found some slightly longer TX10 M3 x 10mm screws and this tightened fine. No more vibration ????
As a test, I will try to upload a photo of the screws that I purchased.
(No – still didn’t work, and I tried both drag/drop and from file manager!)
