Anyone got a spare ACON unit they would be willing to canibalize. While moving my 8500 it slipped and came down on the ACON bending one of the stepper motor shafts.

I just need a replacement stepper motor. Luckily thats the only damage. So if anyone has an ACON unit that didn't work right and would be willing to pull one of the stepper motors I'ld be eternally greatfull.

Tony.. My projector has grown up!!!

I've got one in like new condition, but let me see if CJ (cmjohnson) still wants to trade for the ampro light valve remote.

I've also got an ECP ACON that got banged up in transit, but I'm guessing the shaft was bent like yours.

I'm on the road this week, but if no one else chimes in before this weekend, I'll scrounge around at home and I might have even another one.

(and don't worry Larry, I've still got one for you).

I've got your remote ready, Clarence. PM me with shipping info.

I've straightened out those stepper motor shafts before and the ACON worked
just fine afterwards. It's usually repairable.

I do have a good spare stepper motor I'll send to you, alyle5864, and you can install it in the unit yourself. PM me with shipping info. You can send me a few bucks for it if you want to and it works for you.
