I just inherited the Sony vph-1271q from my brother. It has not been used in about 3 years, and I was told the fans had been replaced in it except for the 2 above the lenses. Anyway, when I fired it up, it looked fine. After I used it to watch a couple movies, I noticed that the right third of the picture was massively deconverging. The same thing was happen on the left third, though the deconvergence was not as bad. This effect sometimes corrects itself, and sometimes will stay that way as long as the projector is on. One friend has suggested that some capacitors in the projector may have dried out over the years it wasn't used, but I just don't know. Is this even fixable? Is this something that has been seen before, or is this totally crazy? Any advice/help would be appreciated.

If you happen to be within driving distance of Southern California - I have one you can have. Worked fine before it went into storage.... Just send me a PM.

Too bad. I am visiting Detroit for the Auto Show in a few days - but I don't think it will fit in the carry on baggage compartment....

i'm sure Curt Palme has a cheap replacement board but if you scroll down the threads you'll see a Free Dwin 700 in your area which is a nicer set than the 1271Q, a little brighter and a lot quieter, better lenses too.

Draganm, I'll check out Curt Palme's forum and see what I can find there. I'll probably need help identifying which board in the projector needs to be replaced. Thanks for the info.
