I am reviving my 6PG, and it had worked fine when I stopped using it. This projector has like 500-600hrs on the tubes and they look perfect, also have HD144 or HD145 lenses (can't remember need to look at them).
When I tried turning it on yesterday I got nothing showing on the tubes, completely blank like no power to them. I tried feeding it a 1280x720@60Hz signal from my PC via RGBHSV, which I though was a registered frequency I had used before but maybe not. Anyway what happens is that the projector tries to turn on, makes a moderate pitch sound for a few seconds then goes into stand by mode. It continues to cycle this over and over unless I turn the power off from the from switch. There are no error codes displayed on the back panel when it is on and trying to 'start up', or when it reverts back to stand by mode.
I am looking for the remote now, but I can never see anything on the tubes.
It was working perfect before putting it up. It has been stored for about 3 years, and it was stored in normal room temperature area. I thought from memory that even before I had used it that when I turned it on I could get at least something from the tubes so I could configure it.
Any thoughts on this?
