Hum from B&o active speakers

I am trying to use a pair of both Beolab 6000 and Beolab 8000 with an Arcam Solo Movie 5.1 one-box DVD receiver and am getting hum through the speakers when the Arcam is put into standby. The speakers are connected via phono (line) inputs. I would also like to use a Beolab 2 subwoofer - which only has a 8-pin DIN input. Will this work and, if so what pins should I use?

Hi,  You may try to not connect the ground pin of the main cable of Arcam Solo. Using a 2 poles adaptor is the simple way. Try to find hum is still there. And using better RCA cables, like twisted pair, quad wires cable is better. Because, it is long-run (over 2 metre long), EMI and RFI are easy to enter the signal path.

    Since Beolab 6000 and 8000 is active speakers, which mean has power-amp modules inside.
    So simple connect to pre-out of the AV amp.
    If using RCA input, please sure you switch it to "line" position.
    Anotherwise, no sound.

Re bad disc message. the disc is stuck inside the unit. Initializes, cannot eject disc, then gives a 'bad disc' message.


Hi. I would contact Arcam directly for this - there may be a reset action you could perform or they could diagnose the fault further.

Arcam repair


Maybe a firmware (that's the running program) problem I'd contact Arcam, if your Solo has a USB input they should be able to send you a firmware update which you can download to a USB stick and then upload to the Solo (instructions will be in the manual). If not your local Arcam dealer should be able to do it for you Arcam warranties are 3 to 5 years. Don't now if they'll edit this but also try AV Forums online. good luck

Tv and speakers buzzing noise


If the hum is a low note continuous hum, its at 'mains' frequency. The power cables to the unit (or inside it) are getting too close to the cables that carry sound signals to the center speaker. The mains power naturally hums and if mains wires are near to audio kit wires they pick up this sound and play it through their system/speakers. Check the wires to and from it make sure the connections are good and firm. Seperate these wires by at least one inch from any power cables, use tape to hold them down and away from each other.

Arcam A65 amplifier keep on go to standymode why?


Depending on the volume level and how many speakers you are driving factor into how the amp will react. Check the speaker wires for shorts, if okay! then we must look at the audio output stage, if the semiconductors are getting to hot, the satety circuits will cause a shutdown, if you run a pair of speakers the amp will run cooler, if you recently added more speakers that would explain the shutdown, if not! there is a problem in the audio output transistors and ic's that will need to be dealt with.

Arcam AVR200. Buzzing sounds in all 5.1 speakers. Gets louder as volume is turned up. Tried all sorts of different things - different power source, 1 speaker, different modes.


I had the same problem. I was told by a sales guy at a high end audio store that I should try using a 3-Prong To 2-Prong Adapter. I went and bought one. I plugged it in and no more buzzing.

you can find them at HomeDepot, Lowes or dollor store.11_25_2012_6_28_23_pm.jpg

Connecting a sonos 90 to BO 8000 active speakers


Does your sonus system has pre-out? you can directly connect one single rca cable to each output into the speakers. make sure, each speakers is set to left and right each channel. these switches can be found above the rca input of the beolab 8000 next to the power link input. You have to understand that by using powerlink source cable is ideal only for other bang&olufsen equipments......however, there are other options, if u don't have a pre-amp output of your amplifier, you can also modify the speaker out of the amp, thru a conversion cable available from bang & olufsen, with an rca cable left and right channel, without interfering with the powerlink.

Only my left and right speaker connections works ..what do i do about the other amp wire connections(center and the other 2 pair)


Have you gone through the setup and set the speaker menu so that the unit knows you have other speakers. Check it even if you did. Check that you are not in direct mode or stereo.
