Maintenance
8
Regular maintenance, such as
cleaning, is the responsibility of the
user. To achieve the best result,
follow the instructions to the right.
Contact your Bang & Olufsen retailer
to determine recommendations for
regular maintenance.
Cleaning surfaces…
Wipe dust off the surfaces using a dry, soft
cloth. Remove grease stains or persistent dirt
with a soft, lint-free, firmly wrung cloth,
dipped in a solution of water containing only
a few drops of mild detergent, such as
washing-up liquid. These cleaning
instructions apply to any stand or wall
bracket as well.
About the plasma screen…
Clean only with a dry, soft cloth. Do not use
liquid cleaners or aerosol cleaners.
Never use alcohol or other solvents to clean any
part of BeoVision 4!
Do not allow still pictures to be displayed on
the screen for an extended period of time, as
this can cause a permanent after-image to
remain on the screen. Examples of still
pictures are logos, video games, computer
images, and images displayed in 4:3 picture
format.
Cleaning the Beo4 remote control
Wipe the Beo4 remote control with a soft,
lint-free, firmly wrung cloth.
2
Changing the Beo4 batteries…
When ‘BATTERY’ appears in the Beo4 display,
it is time to change the batteries in the
remote control.
The Beo4 requires three batteries. Use 1.5
volt (size AAA) Alkaline batteries only.
Replace the batteries as shown on this page.
Keep a finger on top of the batteries until the
lid is replaced.
When you have replaced the batteries, you
must wait for about 10 seconds until ‘TV’
appears in the display. The Beo4 remote
control is then ready for use again.

>> Loudspeaker setup – surround sound
Calibrate the sound level
When you have connected the necessary
speakers in a surround sound setup to
BeoSystem 2, you have to perform a speaker
calibration.
A calibration sound is produced alternately in
each of the speakers you have connected in
your surround sound setup. Your task is to
adjust the sound level from all the connected
speakers to match the sound level from the
centre speakers. You can choose whether you
want the sound sequence to occur automatically or manually.
Once you have performed your speaker
calibration, you only need to re-calibrate the
speaker sound if you make changes to the
setup, for example, if you move one or more
of the speakers.
It is not necessary to calibrate subwoofer sound in
a surround sound setup. If you still wish to adjust
subwoofer sound when your speaker calibration is
complete, refer to the chapter ‘Adjust picture and
sound settings’ on page 35 in the Guide.
The sound level from the centre speakers
functions as your point of comparison with the
external speakers and can not be adjusted.

BeoLink – distribute sound and picture
28
The BeoLink system makes it possible
to distribute picture and/or sound to
other rooms throughout the house.
For example, you can connect
BeoSystem 2 to another video system
or set of speakers in another room,
thereby making it possible to ‘move’
the picture or sound to other rooms.
If you have a BeoLink distribution
system installed, you can use
BeoVision 4 in the main room, such
as a living room, or in a link room,
such as a study or bedroom.
The system modulator ensures that
video sources can be distributed to
the link room. Under certain
circumstances, it may be necessary to
enter modulator settings.
Link connections
The main room system must be connected to
the link room system with a Master Link
cable:
> Connect the Master Link cable to the socket
marked MASTER LINK on BeoSystem 2.
> If you want to distribute video signals as well,
connect an ordinary aerial cable to the socket
marked LINK on BeoSystem 2.
> Run both cables to the link room and follow the
instructions enclosed with the link room
equipment.
If the MASTER LINK socket on BeoSystem 2 already
has an audio system connected, the Master Link
cable must be split in two and joined with the
cable from the link room using a special junction
box. Consult your Bang & Olufsen retailer for
assistance.

must set the system modulator to On. The
factory setting is Off.
If, for example, a TV channel in your area is
broadcasted on the same frequency as the
BeoLink system uses, 599 MHz, you must tune
the system modulator to an unoccupied
frequency. When you change the link
frequency in the main room system, make
sure that the link frequency in the link room

language, you can switch between the various
types while you are watching a particular TV
channel. For information about the various
types of sound available, refer to the chapter
‘Change sound type or language’ on page 9 in

Volume
The volume level can be adjusted in steps of
two within a range of 00 to 72.
Bass
Bass tone can be adjusted in steps of one within
a range of +6 to -6. 0 is the neutral setting.
Treble
Treble tone can be adjusted in steps of one
within a range of +6 to -6. 0 is the neutral

Loudness
Loudness can be set to On or Off. The loudness
function is used to compensate for the human
ear’s lack of sensitivity to high and low
frequencies. It boosts the low and the high
frequencies when you are listening to low
volume levels so that the music becomes more
dynamic.
Subwoofer (only available if you have connected
a BeoLab 2 subwoofer to BeoSystem 2).
Can be adjusted in steps of one within a range
of +9 to -9. 0 is the neutral setting.
