Hi dont no if you can help, but im a bit of an audio enthusiast and going to the tip on satday and pick'd up a b&o beocenter 7007 for four pound! great, quickly putting it on the back seat of the car. got it home and went over it, great way how it opens. then pluged it in and to my suprise it lite up. the display counter has two LED out, there are no belts on the tape deck, and no needle. Just would like to no if it is worth fixing it up, and how much for the bits. i was suprised how heavy it was. i currently have a luxman L100 which i love and dont think i would change, so will proberley sell it on ebay. i would just love to get it to its formal glory if anyone can help Regards Lee

Hi what has happened is when you pressed play the tape head that reads the tape has come up as normal this locks the door as you cant open it when its playing but instead of the tape head releasing and going back down into start possition it has become jammed in the tape itself. You have two options turn off at mains and give it a gentle bang a couple of times this might free the tape and let the head go back to start possition its upto you how hard you tap it but doing this usually works and will allow you to get the tape out failing this then its going to be a case of stripping it down till you can get access to the tape head and be able to free it from the tape allowing door to open let me know how you get on ok and if you need further assistance
If the take-up spool (r/h) doesnt turn the autostop will activate.Both these spools get clogged with old grease with age, remove and clean/regrease them,check all belts while apart and replace any limp ones.Removing the tape deck requires some knowledge.
This is something I can tell you that you can sort out yourself with a little bit of mechanical aptitude and a couple of screwdrivers.
FIRST turn the power off to the unit.
If you pop the lid off the unit, you will see that the capstan drive belts to the tape decks mechanism have failed, Either turned to back muck like windscreen sealant, or just broken and dropped off. The belts (each deck has one) will need to be replaced. The part number for the belt(according to my records) is REB1272 You should still be able to get them from Pioneer spares directly in your country. Let me know where you are and I can get some better information to you.
good luck. Happy to assist you further and answer any questions you may have.
the stylus is most likely integral to the head...there are no alternate supplyers im aware of. for my beocenter 1800 b&o asked for 250euro for a replacement. next move i made was to buy a cheapo generic needle, scavenge the tip - wich was actually hollow, and ram im it on the broken renmant of the original one....not very hi-fi, but worked noiselessly.
Really simple one this. You have a slipping belt. Don't try to use any more tapes in it, you end up chewing them up. I change all my belts in my decks every 2 years due to the extreme heat we have here. Unless you know how to strip the unit and can get hold of the correct belt I'm afraid it's a repair shop job.
To give you some idea of price I charge $50 for a complete service, alignment and belt change.
