BeoVision 3802

Large photo

Manufactured: 1977 - 1981
Designer: David Lewis
Colours: White / Aubergine

Beovision 3502 and 3802 - designed by David Lewis - were two 22" colour TV receivers whose cabinets were of a moulded synthetic material. They were elegant and practical, according to B&O's catalogue of 1979 - 80; the material was shock- and shatter-proof and fire-retardant. Dirty marks could be wiped off easily with a damp cloth.

Operation was easy and problem-free via the large, logically designed operation panels. Additionally in the 3802 model, all functions could be operated from a distance via the remote control module. Both receivers could accommodate a VCR without further technical adjustment. Beovision 3802 could also be equipped for Teletext reception. Automatic cut-off circuitry ensured the correct balance between colours without the need for regular adjustment by an engineer. High-bright picture tubes allowed for satisfactory viewing in daylight conditions. Modular chassis and low power consumption (and therefore less heat) ensured greater reliability.


Beovision 3502/3802 offered a choice of three undercarriages:

on castors (type 3043)

a trolley (type 3056)

or a trumpet-shaped pedestal (type 3054)

All were sold as optional accessories.

Beovision 3802, like Beovision 3702, could be connected to a VCR without any technical changes being made. And with an optional accessory-kit you could link Beovision 3802 in to your hi-fi system. A second accessory kit was available to provide private listening through headphones.

Optional accessories for the Beovision 3802

* A kit for sound output to a tape recorder and hi-fi system on the set's rear panel

Finish: Beovision 3502: white or aubergine. Beovision 3802: white only
