There are three connectors on the vertical board that need to be taken off and flipped 180 degrees. Ditto for the 3 large white connectors coming out of the H board. Pull those apart, rotate one end...

Please email me through either of the websites in my signature. I just scrapped a working D50. Error code 10 simply means 'no input signal', and the fans should be running. there's no fuses in the...

Frankly, I wouldn't spend money on this NEC set. I stopped supporting them due to multiple issues, including many leaking capacitors. If you can get boards for the cost of shipping, then sure, but...

Frankly at this point, there probably is no point. CRT is a DIY thing for die-hard home theater people. I wrote an FAQ here that explains the pros and cons, but if you need ultra short throw, CRT is...

It can be the H deflection board, HV power supply, or one of the neck boards on the back of the tubes. I've got most of the boards in stock, but if as per your other post, you're going digital, I...

If the projector is ceiling mounted, then it is error 10, error 01 does not exist.

Do the fans in the projector keep spinning after the 10 shows up? If so, the projector is not seeing an input...

Possible, but not likely. I did have a Marquee that came in with 73,000 hours on it, still working fine, but the 12XX series generally were not installed into simulator situations where they were...

The 1272 is ridiculously reliable, but yes, they are soft compared to EM focusing sets. If the set has under 2500 hours on it, it should resolve 720p, but if it's got over 5000 hours on it, it should...

To be blunt: Don't waste your time! It's an enormous job, but if caps have damaged any PC board due to leaking electrolyte, then that board is toast. I stopped supporting PG sets about 5 years ago...

I do 2-3 layers of bubble wrap, then put it into a double wall cardboard box with styro around the set to keep it from moving (moving blankets, etc also work). Most importantly, strap the set/box to...

It could also be a fault on the CLM board, the one with the error lights on the back of it. Pull it out with the power cord unplugged, and reseat the two sub boards on it, and push down hard on the...

That 'white stuff' is silicone, and only holds the plastic tube spacer to the tube. It has nothing to do with the vacuum in the tube itself. the air is sucked out via the glass nipple on the back of...

Ha, I think I know which set it is! If you went and got it, was he right off Fraser Hwy and about 190th or somewhere around there? If so, that's a super low hour unit, and shouldn't have tube wear,...

FWIW, unless you're jumping way up to a gain of say 7.0, going from a screen gain of 1.0 to 1.5 or so isn't going to make any difference at all, at least not significantly so. At least to me.

Also, try an RGB booster amp if you're running RGBHV into the projector. That's an easy way to get more punch out of a 1292. Also, if the 1292 has high hours on it, then the tubes may have low...

No, your LCD panels are bad, or the DLP chip is bad. Changing the bulb won't do anything. Use it until you can't put up with it any more, than get a new projector, it's not worth repairing.

I saw the first generation Sony 4K at CEDIA in Denver a couple of years ago. very impressive indeed, but I'm just not a fan of an overly sharp image. If something is sharper than I see in real life,...
