Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I have a bang and olufsen 1500 turntable. The problem I have is that the tonearm does not lift clear of the record once it has finished playing.

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

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!!!!!

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

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.

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!
