How about the Barco 808S which used the Sony tubes.
I have some I can send in if you want to try one or have your engineers look at it. VDC currently is not rebuilding these.
So as I see it what we will pay is the CRT rebuild fee PLUS the $150 to R&R the front glass/CElement and refill the glycol. Is that correct?
If so if we do the R&R ourselves, it's just the CRT rebuild fee.

Terry, I am waiting for a call back from Art at PATX on Monday regarding the 8" Sony CRTs in the BG 808s. He tells me that they need to scope out an 808s projector in operation, so they know what voltages the tubes operate at. I offered to unbolt the 808s from my ceiling and ship it to them, and he is checking with his engineers about it. I hate the idea of being without my projector for a couple months, but I think it will be for the good of the community. I'll let you know what I find out.

Since I don't know the parts numbers, does anyone know if they can rebuild CRTs for the NEC 9PG extra?

Happy Friday everyone!

I just spoke with Arturo at PATX regarding a few questions about the CRT program. Here are a few highlights:
  • CRTs sent to PATX should not have the deflection yoke or mounting hardware attached.
  • Most customers prefer to send the CRT with expansion chamber complete, and have PATX deal with the messy disassembly, rebuild and reseal. The additional $24 is well worth it! PATX will reseal with a RTV sealant that, according to them, will not leak ever again.
  • If sending the CRT with expansion chamber, also sending the lens is optional but not recommended. There will be an additional labor charge if the lens is sent, to be determined when the tube is worked on.
  • When sending a CRT with expansion chamber that is leaking, it should be put in a sealed plastic bag!
  • CRTs without the expansion chamber do not come with fluid or gaskets.
  • Their rebuild line is set up to handle 7 inch tubes. 8 or 9 inch tubes can be done at an additional cost, to be determined by PATX at the time of work.
  • PATX can rebuilt many CRTs on the market today, but not all of them. The CRT list we have is the ones they have done in the past and know they can handle. As they fix new part numbers that list will grow.
  • PATX requests that inquiries for tubes not on the list the customer either (1) send them a photo of the CRT for analysis (preferred) or (2) send them the CRT for analysis. The customer is responsible for all shipping costs to and from PATX, even if it cannot be rebuilt. If it can be rebuilt the customer will be billed accordingly.
Additionally I asked Arturo about any CRTs they know cannot be rebuilt. He will prepare a list and get back to me shortly. One requested type that cannot be fixed is all Mitsubishi tubes made prior to 1994, as they use non-standard parts.

Thanks!!

Well David, I guess I'll owe you guys a bit more money. I did remove everything else, but left the expansion chanmber intact. You're right though, well worth a bit of additional expense!

One other thing, can you clarify the ship to address for everyone? It is a bit different than the one on the patx website...when I talked to Art earlier in the week, I asked if "the address in the web was correct" and he replied yes.

UPS shows my tube out for delivery to Art and the PATX gang, so hopefully I will be watching a "new" improved picture next weekend :)

Thanks a million...Good luck...Let us know... Whichever is appropriate this time! jmwj03 at hotmail dot com

Info correction!

Previously I posted the PATX address wrong. It should be:

PATX
4402 AUSTIN RD #2/D
BROWNSVILLE, TX 78521

The #2 part is important, though it is not on their website.

Arturo from PATX will be on this forum shortly if not already. Thanks!

Well, I sent my tube without the number 2. I have emailed Art...I hope he can get it to the right place without much delay!

And I do hope he'll join in here!

Well, looky here....go away for a week or so and what do I come back to?!! This is certainly an interesting development. Good find, Jay!

David, I have a question for you. On the sony 7" tubes (07MS, 07MP, SD187, et al), Charlie at VDC informed me that Sony absolutely refuses to sell their internal gun hardware to any outside parties. Consequently, VDC uses a very similar gun that is close to the performance of the original Sony 07MS type, and pretty much mirror images the performance of the older SD-187 tubes. Problem is, due to tolerance differences, they just can't quite get that newer tube quality with their hardware. What have you done to address this issue? Do you use VDC's hardware, a different 3rd party, or do you possibly have better biz negotiators than VDC and are using the Sony gun?

Mike

Do they even fix the SD187 tubes and 07MS ones? Maybe I missed it but I couldn't find them listed on the web page.....

Looks like Art Alonso from PATX has joined the forum recently. I've asked him to look in on this thread. :D

Over here on another thread (with his first post) Art introduces PATX a little, and states some facts about their rebuild process. What interested me was they rebuild only electrostatic tubes. Is this an ES tube, and how different are they from EM tubes, any?

I'm confused too. Do the tubes which employ external electromagnetic focusing coils also fall under the description of "electrostatic focus" tubes?

Well Bob, I would think that if they can do Marquee tubes that this is the case.

Dear David if you could also answer me if Your plant is able to rebuild the 07MP tubes used on the Barco Graphics 800 i would be very happy. I would also be one of the first to order one of these rebuildt tubes for this PJ. I am talking about the blue tube by the way if that makes any difference.

I hope that you can give me a positive answer to this question and i keep my fingers crossed .

Best Regards

What sort of "rebuild" is being done at this price? Are the electron guns being replaced?

if they can do the sony 07MP tubes, which VDC cant, they will have allot of new customers with tubes comming from all over the world.

Their price equates to between 1/4 and 1/3 the price of a new tube and makes me think of my 1251 in a different light.

But once again Sony probably wont let them use the guns or something

From what the Company says is that they build there own!
Better guns than sony and on par with panasonic guns.
They start from the rebuilt tubes bare Glass.

Hopefully they can rebuild the tubes that everyone here needs rebuilt!!!!!

And how about 9" such as P19LCP07
Could be realyy nice with a reasonable price on 9" rebuild.:)

What is a home theater without good sound??

This sounds like an amazing development. I am reminded of an old teacher's advice: be hopeful and at the same time skeptical. Rather than inundate this company with orders, it may be best to give a few of the experts some time to check out these tubes. VDC has a proven track record of working with people to put out tubes that perform and hold up. We owe the new kid on the block the same opportunity and should demand it of them as well.

Hmmmm, this thread has been going on since the 3rd of november, and yet no one has seen any tubes done by PATX...
Is everyone waiting on someone else to be the first :)

I'm eagerly waiting the first tester to post here...

I would be curious as to the QC, consistancy, and pricing of XG135 (1/2)LC tubes. Somehow, though, I wonder about the coloration from the OEM, which has a nice reputation for its color.
