Beogram 1800 wont play the record!!

I am having a problem with a bang & olufsen beogram 1800 which i have just got down from the attic.
when i put the vinyl in and press play, the stylus moves to a position over the edge of the record, as it should.
but then the stylus dips down and up again, twice, and then returns to its idle position and the record stops turning.
any ideas why it would do this?

    well there are no obstructions inside as far as i can see, and it actually worked for a tiny bit earlier, though i wasnt doing anything different from just pressing the play button like i always do.
    i am having trouble seeing some important parts inside it as i cant seem to remove most of the panelling, apart from the bit directly below the turntable!
    thanks for you help

Possibly some kind of obstruction inside.
I had something similar with my turntable, and it had a dirt dauber nest inside it!
no kidding.

RCA VLP37H needle arm won't advance to play record...moves backward, then seats down again

You will probably have to take the bottom off to see what is happening inside. The thing could have been tampered with by someone try to fix something. So it's not something that you know was previously working. With a bit of luck it might need a bit of grease to get it going. But you never know with a second hand model!

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.

Bang and Olufsen Turntable will not platter will not spin

Normally on the RX-2 there are only 3 transit screws but if they are stuck you might need to gently try to lift them while turning anti clockwise. You can do this with a Steel Ruler and yoiu may have to use a little bit of force as some people torque them down tight. As for manuals and service manuals - they are rare!

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.
