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.

When I recieved my BC Rich Virgo celtic bass there was no problem. I played with it for almost an hour. Later I wanted to play another time so plugged it in. No sound came from my bass. I tried to replace...


Intermittent problems can lead one on a merry chase. The first suspect would be the guitar cable.

Players learn to check the connection to the amp is good by touching the tip of the cable and observe you get hum.

It is UNLIKELY to get two bad guitars so we need to check everything else. Cable is next suspect.

Check the cable IS for intruments and NOT speakers. Check that the tips do not spin. Some cables become worn and the sleeves no longer actuate the switch that turns the battery in the guitar on or the tip fails to make contact. Do not use cables that are intended to connect stereo systems. Use ONLY instrument rated cables.

I got my daughter Wii Rockband-she is so mad and me to because we can't figure out how to let her play it-like play the guitar without the microphone-everytime she tries to play it, it says it doesn't...


Rock Band is a 4 player game, each player taking their own role. They can choose from Guitar, Bass, Drums or Microphone. If your daughter wants to play guitar and sing at the same time, she will need to play a multiplayer game and use 2 Mii profiles, one for guitar and one for singing. 
A single player cannot play 2 instruments using the same Mii either. You must use separate profiles.

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.

Fuji-mx1700 and night shots


Use the manual set up ( the small camera icon with the "M" next to it. Play around with the flash settings and set your flast to night. Check out the manual on this feature. I just got my 1700 last week. The Halloween photos were a lot of fun. Its also my first digital camera and there is a lot to learn. I read every thing I could find on the web prior to my purchase. I felt the MX1700 was the best value. So far this camera has met or exceed all my expectiations.
