Hi All,

After picking up a used Da-Lite Model C 92x69 glass bead screen, I was disappointed to see a small area in the prime viewing spot (near center) where the glass bead has been rubbed off (about the size of a quarter). Is there any way to repair this, or do I have to live with it? For what it is worth, I don't know the gain of the screen, but the gap is much more apparent in the viewing cone, compared to outside of it.

If I have to, I could mask the screen off for cinemascope aspect ratio (2.35), and just live with it, but it would be nice to have the whole screen available.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Darrin

The surface can NOT be repaired. You will need to replace the screen (I had to go through this process myself a couple of years back). ANYTHING you attempt to do will only make it worse (believe me, I tried EVERYTHING!)
Contact the Dalite Company, 219-267-8101 in Indiana, for a replacement.

Hey Mark, Thanks for the reply!

Yes, I was afraid of that. Did you end up going with another glass bead screen, or did you opt for a different screen type the second time around?

Cheers!
