Open Question

B&O Beogram 1700

Wanted to play some Buddy Rich for my daughter who is learning the drums, and wouldn't you know it... two things... first, the tonearm is stuck in the "up" position and second, I couldn't turn it OFF, had to unplug it.
Ideas?
Worth fixing or is it junk?

possibly some kind of obstruction inside.
I had something similar with my turntable, and it had a dirt dauber nest inside it!

SOURCE: Turntable tonearm returns but starts playing record over again.

http://www.vinylengine.com/library/pioneer/pl-570.shtml
on page 8 of the above service manual for your model it shows 4 electrical switches that tell the computer what 'state' the mechanism is in at any given time. Either one or more of the switches are intermittant or the mechanism has dried up grease that is slowing down the operation and basically gumming up the works. the old grease would have to be removed and replaced when it is causing binding. The switch just to the right of where is says "microswitch ksf-023" is an 'open air' type and so would be the most likely suspect. it simply needs to be cleaned with a super fine file designed only for cleaning switch contacts. THIS SERVICE SHOULD ONLY BE PERFORMED BY QUALIFIED PERSONNEL ONLY!!!!!

SOURCE: tonearm goes to record and returns to start position without ever playing the record

Do you have an adjustable piece at the end nearest the pivot point [the bit that goes into the turntable] if you do then adjust the weight so there is more downward pressure on the record [ or just try putting weight on the tonearm ] and see if this helps

SOURCE: tonearm lifter in UP position - how to fix

I have also had this problem with the same model turntable. I opened mine up and the problem seems to have been that the grease on the arm lift and cueing lever was gumming up the linkage between the two. (I suspect that my turntable hadn't been used in some time.) I managed to free up the parts by manually working the the arm lift (pressing it down) several times. I'm not sure that I needed to open up the chasis for this fix but it did help me to see what was going on. Good luck with yours.

Beogram 1100 not turning


If your platter runs off of a belt then the belt would need to be replaced after many years especially if its been in storage. Another thing is, if you can see the motor with the flywheel on it, it is a good idea to spray just a little WD-40 down the shaft to free up the motor and just let it run for several hours after the table was sitting dormant for so long.

Technics SL-1700 Turntable that is barely audible


Have you have tried it on a different amp, if not do so - which if it solves you have a faulty phono pre-amp in that amp- if not I would suspect that inside the deck is a faulty pre-amp. Or is the cartridge faulty?

B and O beogram 1700


Problem might be the 33 switch. If it's gone bad, it will cause this kind of problem. The issue is not the motor. Possibly one of the capacitors or resistors might have gone bad. Not easy to determine without the proper tools and a service manual.
