Complete set of correct incandescent lamps for the front panel.
A total of 5 lamps of correct type and wattage to cover the ON, Stereo, Signal-meter illumination and tuning indicators.
To achieve equal illumination and lamp life it is adviceable to replace all lamps in one go.
Beomaster 3000, 3000-2 and 4000 were both constructed for using lamps, as were Beocenter 3500;
The two tuning discriminator lamps form part of the AFC circuitry with their varying brightness, tuning close to – and around – FM stations.
The discriminator circuit depends greatly on the lamps varying flow of current (light output) to function correctly.
Any unbalance from bad/wrong lamps (or LEDs) can cause unstability or even complete failure of the FM tuning circuits, often resulting in no reception at all.
These are not LEDs. This is the real thing.
Basic electronic skills are required to replace the lamps.
Note: This kit is for versions of Beomaster 3000 and 4000 with a socketed lamp for the signal-meter.
This lamp is sitting at the right side of the S-meter in a plug-in socket. In the kit this lamp is packed and marked separately from the other lamps in the kit.
If your Beomaster version has an axial lamp soldered to a small board sitting just above the signal meter dial, please use the contact form and ask for advice.
This kit contains lamps that are exact direct replacements for original Bang & Olufsen part numbers 8230025 and 8230023 (later 8230065).
