Well, I've searched and can't find any info so I'm going to ask. The last two days we've had some really bad storms and tonight I fired up the projector and have no input on port 5. I do still have port 3 but would really not rather drop down that far. Any ideas on what might have gotten smoked? I retubed this projector less than a year ago so I would rather not give up on it just yet. I know it's only a 500 but it's been my baby for quite some time and I'm not ready to put it to sleep quite yet. I've been feeding it with a hacked oppo and ota hd receiver through a Crescendo rgb converter. From what I can tell, it appears that the problem is in port 5 and not any other equipment. Any help is appreciated smile.gif

The RGB input switch board is bad. Very common after a storm FYI, you cannot use Port 3 on these older 500 and 800 series, as they use a TTL level which your equipment doesn't output.

I've got the boards at $50 plus shipping. PM me if you need one. - CRT tech info -pro audio website
