Mark, it looks like I missed my true calling then.

So far I have tried pushing on the plate that holds the video card per Tom's earlier instructions. No luck.

Might be tomorrow or Friday until I can take it apart and reassemble.

Now apart and reassembled putting an additional spacer under the Formatter board to push the problem connector together. No luck.

Also, found a screw missing from the formatter board.


Actively working with Tom Bond.

Man this is brutal.

Just wanted to say I've had mine hung the whole time. I actually pondered if this was causing the issue that turned out to be HDMI related. I managed the AV department at a university for a number of years and hanging the Vango felt clunkier than any of the dozens I installed and occasionally took down on campus. The custom hanging plate still leaves me scratching my head at times. But in the end it works.

Crossing my fingers for good luck to you.

Thanks Corey,

I was a Multimedia Manager in the Air Force so I have a little experience as well. I know that I have seen some much better metal work when the fabrication guys would help us out and make something. You are right though, it does work.

No success on the projector. Have not heard from Tom for a few days. I am about ready to throw in the towel on this one. We may be moving soon so this projector may not make the cut.

I still seems that there is a problem between the video card and the formatter card. I have tried changing the spacers and no luck. I think that this may be a design or manufacturing issue. Not robust enough or on the edge of the manufacturing spec. But hey, what can you expect for $10K?

One screw was missing from the formatter card when the PJ was returned and I don't have one to replace it with. (sorry for the bad sentence) Maybe next week, I will be able to play with this a little. One thing is for sure, I am not ready to throw good money after bad since I have seen the attention to detail of the factory repair. One of the screws for the computer input is missing as well. The only way I would go back to them would be at no cost and they say this is a new problem and have washed their hands.

Anyone need an anchor for their boat?
