Question about Audio Players & Recorders

I have a Bang&Olufsen Beogram

I have a Bang&Olufsen Beogram RX which has been sitting in the attic most of it's life, as I've moved on to CD's like the rest of the universe. Now I am trying to hook it with my stereo sytem, but am not getting very far because, though power is on in the turntable, the platform will not spin. I recall, or think I do, that when setting it up after a move, etc., there was something I had to do to unlock something. I know I'm sounding vague, but I really can't remember for sure. I don't believe anything could be wrong with the belt. It did revolve a few years ago when I attempted to hook it up to my Bose. (However, I discovered at that time that I'd have to add a preamplifier. So I just bagged the idea. Now as I'm trying again,the turntable won't tun when we turn it on. Can you help?

Sir,

A belt-drive turntable is a work of art and a musical treasure. It provides listening pleasure that has yet to be fully realized by the compact disc and digital technology. Listen and compare with an open mind and you will believe.

Replace the Turntable belts....

thanks
good luck

I would still check the belt, rubber normally gets hard or soft depending on the temperature that it was expose to. You could also have to move the arm manually until engages the switch to activate the motor whenever you press the start/run button.
I'm working on one turntable as I type here, same condition with this one, in storage for a very long time.
Let me know if you require further assistance.

You need to remove the platter and look underneath it. There should be a belt that at this point is probably goo. Remove all of the old belt and replace it. I don't have the size with me at the moment but it is likely to be a 23.6" belt. If you can post the exact model number, I'll look up in my belt cross reference book and post the exact size.

Similar to most Beogram 1800, the RX 2 featured record sizing by weight. When Play was selected, the centre part of the platter would raise gently, with only just enough force to lift a 45RPM single. An LP would be too heavy to lift, so the mechanism would set itself to 45RPM and 18cm if the record lifted, 33RPM and 30cm if it did not. The speed control keys could then be used to override the choice for non-standard records. The parts could also detect if a record was not present, and prevent the turntable being activated
Just put lp on and it should work

My bang and olufsen 7002 wont select the phono stage


The Phono/Aux input has a slider switch to the left of it to choose whether to make it a regular line-in jack or to utilize the phono stage. The ground terminal is just above the jacks. The Beogram 4002 likely has a muting circuit that's in effect when the tonearm is in the lift position, which would explain the lack of hum til the stylus lowered to the record.

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!
