I'm based in the SF Bay Area, but will also travel anywhere. So far this has
included New Jersey, Arizona, Texas, Oklahoma, Oregon, Washington, and
both No. and So. CA, tho I have had inquiries from as far away as
Iceland, Puerto Rico and the Philipines.
I have attended the Ampro, Runco, Sencore, Toshiba and Tektronix
schools, plus studied electronics theory and repair at Lane Community
College in Springfield, Oregon.
Plus the ISF Course - plus both of the special ISF courses offered
after the actual training days of the ISF training - from Jim Burns: on
aiming OTA HD antennas in difficult situations - and Jim Doolittle: on
the finer points of doing ceiling projectors.
In the last 20 years I have done Sony, Philips, Marantz, RCA, Hitachi, Panasonic, Zenith and NEC RPTVs, plus Sony, Mitsubishi, Electrohome, Runco, Ampro, Barco, NEC, Dwin, Seleco, Vidikron, Kloss and Advent front projectors.
My calibrations are not just the typical ISF calibration of simply
greyscale and user centers; they are complete stem to stern
calibrations, covering both optical and electrostatic focussing
(including precision blue defocussing and how it relates to the white
balance section of greyscale), professional optics cleaning, geometry
(precision picture shaping and placement), convergence, greyscale,
recalibration of user centers, and ardent effectiveness in dealing
with red push issues - universally prevalent in Mitsubishis, but also
present in many other brands. Unfortunately, this has to be
tempered by the ability of any set to actually allow for linear
color decoding response, and/or be re-aligned for achieving it.
When necessary, they also involve scheimpflug and astigmatism re-alignments - fine-point ops that are not commonly known about.
I will also greyscale any TV made, as long as accurate service
literature, if necessary, is available and on location, waiting for me
- including DVTVs, LCDs, plasmas, DLPs, etc.
As a repair tech, I also repair many brands of big screen, both FPTV and RPTV, and am presently specializing in keeping triple-gun Elite Pro HDreadys going, when they come down with some very expectable ailments, elaborated upon in this thread:http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...88#post8728688
Please read immediately if not sooner, if your PRO 510/610/710 has had any intermittent problems, or your 520/620/720 or 530/630/730 as well.
