New tracking opto sensor (LDR resistor) for use in the following Bang & Olufsen models:
Beogram 3000 Type 59xx only
The original sensor has a tendency to degrade and the Beogram will no longer track.
Symptoms of a bad sensor are that the tonearm moves along with the record groove, but the carriage doesn’t follow.
The Beogram will play fine as the tonearm comes nearer and nearer to the tracking arm but when it cannot get any closer it begins to skip and jump tracks, – that’s typically after only a few minutes of playing.
This is a direct replacement for original Bang & Olufsen part# 5210009
Note: The above mentioned symptoms could also be caused by a bad lamp operating together with the sensor.
(The lamp is found in the webshop as part# EP-002).
