Hi Welcome to just answer.

How long have you owned this? When playing 33s, do you see the speed decreasing or the arm get stuck? Does the problem happens when you are towards the edge or towards the center of the record?

I have owned the player for a couple of years, but it has not been used for a while. I had to re-align all of the gears inside to get it started prior to this. The problem occurs at the beginning, center and end. The pickup drops down, but lifts again after a couple of seconds. Playing 45s works like a charm.

The model is btw Beogram TX-2. Same mechanisms as Beogram 3000, 3300, 3500, 4500, 5005, 5500 , 6500, 8500, 9000 and 9500.
Electronics Technician: electronicsguy, Engineer replied 2 years ago

When you were re-aligning the gears, did you check the status of the drive belt?

Have you ever changed the drive belt? The problem seem to be related to the weight on the platter which make the belt to slip off the motor. I would suggest changing the belt. Please if you can change both belts on the platter and the arm.

See the link below:-http://www.turntablebasics.com/belts/bangandolufsen.html

If you feel that I have answer your question, please rate my answer. This is the only way I get credit for my time.

Hello again. During this process I ave changed the drivebelt several times. That is not the problem. Like I explained, it play 45s perfectly. his is some sort of sensor issue. I took a chance with trying you out. But this did clearly not meet my expectations. Sincerely, Knut

Hi Knut and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially and to my recollection, there is an opto-coupler in the servo circuitry of these models.

Do you have a copy of the Service Manual?
