Why did you revive a 3 month dead thread?

Someday maybe I'll actually WATCH my projector...

I'll swap it for a Sony Ruby (or a Pearl) or even 2

Its a much better digital technology - I'll even throw in 20 spare globes.

And set it up for you. Deal?


My goal: A blend of double stacked G90s! Encased in ice to prevent drift.

I'm making a HUGE assumption here, but if whowillbe got his set from the same place that I bought a couple of surplus sets from overseas, they needed MASSIVE amounts of work to get them going. I got two Visions from overseas and both had glycol leaks which toasted a bunch of stuff. One of the chassis had super low hours on it, but still.

I don't know why these sets had all of these problems. My suspicion was that the dealer used these sets as parts mules for others in the field, and put a bunch of bad boards from the field into the two units I got. That still doesn't explain the glycol leaks.

Once they were all cleaned up though, they ran fine and I sold them.

The companion pair to the the two that went to Holland, Curt? Those two were clean I believe, but still were completely rebuild. The first one is now sold, but the second one is still awaiting a buyer, I believe. They fitted wear free PLUGs in the machine.

I read a thread on your site about a guy with an LC set and the glycol and glycerin mixture became too low. Would that ever make me mad!


I've never heard of a stock NEC tube leaking in a set (Curt may have), closest is a VDC tube leaking for Don Kellogg.

Yes, whowillbe's machine came from that same place. The reason they were so trashed is as you suspected, these were parts mules. I'm pretty sure the owner was shocked at what you guys wound up paying for the machines. I looked into it but the $1700. in freight alone was enough to scare me off. Also, singapore has like 90% average humidity, and that is REALLY bad for the LC chambers in a CRT as they absorb a lot pf mosture and swell, eventually causing a leak.
whowillbe, it's really good to hear your 9500 is now solid. I would recomend removing one of the drain screws on each tube and letting the excess pressure blead off.

Yes I believe there were from the same place... well I believe that Curt and Dragamn were both right, that the shop used those projectors as spare parts in fact, when the Vision One started developing problems, they weren't able to provide the support they were supposed to as the 2 projectors were shipped overseas... guess I deserved it then....

Anyway after reading on this forum, and tinkering around with the projector, I've found that the Marquee is a really easy machine to work...

Draganm, I've already loosen the screw to release the excess pressure after I found glycol leaking out of the chassis and I also readjusted my projector as recommended by your guys earlier in the thread and you all were so right, the image were better.

you'll have more luck posting in the digital forums, this is the CRT forum. Otherwise you may need to call Runco, who may or may not be helpful.
