Just wanted to share some pictures of the theater we are finishing up right now.

Today we delivered the custom ordered Fusion Collection Escape-1019 chairs and installed the buttkickers, tuned the sound using the Audyssey room correction system. Sounds awesome now

So last night I invited a friend over to watch the Olympics and have dinner. When he reclined the chair, it died and won’t move. Acts like no power but I moved the plug to another terminal in the surge protector and still nothing. Any ideas how to fix it or how it can be moved manual to an upright position for now? Four were purchased in 2012 so I know the warenty is expired. I am on an iPad and cant figure how to post pictures on here.

Hal,

According to my records you have Escape-1019 recliners.

Are any LEDs on the cup holder ON, or all are OFF?

Put the chair on the side and check all the wires to make sure that none of them are caught by the reclining mech and got pinched or cut. If everything looks fine, check the power supply - a rectangular plastic box on the bottom of the chair. You will find there 2 wires that are plugged into the power supply. Make sure that both are firmly plugged in. Bad connection in most cases would cause the problem like loosing power to the chair. I suggest unplugging and replugging them back in.

If that does no change anything, find a control box located inside on the bottom of the chair arm. You will see 3 wires plugged into it. Again unplug and replug all of them.

If this does not help, unplug the wire from the power supply (not the power cord, but the wire on the other side), extend it and plug it into a power supply of the working chair. If the "bad" chair comes to live, you have a bad power supply that needs to be replaced.

Let me know if any of this helps, and if not we will continue diagnosing...

Roman,

No Leds on the cup holder are lit, but they hadn't been lit for awhile but the chair still worked. I did as you suggested, checked all wires and plugged the bad chair into a power supply on a chair that worked and still nothing.

I assume the headrest is not working either?

Have you checked the control box inside of the chair arm?
Have you unplugged and replugged back all 3 wires there?

If you did all of this and still got nothing, then plug the cup holder from a "bad" chair into a working chair control box, and see if that cup holder can operate a working chair. If not, then the cup holder needs to be replaced. IF it operates the working chair, then connect the other 2 wires that are going into a control box from the bad chair to a working chair control box, and if you can operate the "bad" chair using a "good" chair cupholder, than the control box is bad.

Basically you need to eliminate one component at a time to determine which one has failed.

Roman,

You are correct the head rest did not work either.

I have you checked the control box inside of the chair arm.
I have you unplugged and replugged back all 3 wires there. When I plug the Cup holder from the bad chair into a good chair it does operate it. So that eliminates the cup holder. I'm guessing the only thing left is the control box?

Yes, it seams like it is a high possibility,

In order to confirm it, I would try the other 2 wires that are plugged into a control box on "bad" chair (one comes from the motor, and one from a headrest) plugging into a "good" chair control box, and if the "bad" chair starts working it will definitely tell you that the control box went bad.

Roman,

Follow your directions, I plugged the wires from the bad chairs control box, into a good chair control box. The bad chair now works! What's the process to get a replacement control box?

I got my chairs last week. The shippers put a couple of small holes in the vinyl. I didn't notice the small holes in the box when I got them. Fortunately it's on a part that is hidden when the chairs are placed together. I'm going to use a vinyl repair kit just so that is hold up long term.


I haven't taken any pics yet. When I have time I will of the setup. For me, the chairs don't even need to be broken in, they're comfortable as is.

The camera does play some tricks. It is small for a theater room, but the painted area up the drapes I use to close is 18 feet long, and the part to the door is another 11 feet. I put the largest screen I could fit in there (118" 16:9). Whenever I do move, I will get a wider room, and more usable seating area with elevated rows. I will have to get more chairs of course, but not ready to make that big leap just yet.

Hello

Can someone help with getting some measurements for the Tributes? I would like to know how high the feet side and head side of the Tribute chair go when fully reclined.

Thanks

Getting home late tonight, but if nobody has let you know this by the time I get home, I'll measure and let you know.

Thank you so much for the measurements. I’m also looking to have my 16x9 screen go lower than normal and I was worried that their own reclined feet would come in the way for folks in the first row.

btw, you have an awesome room, one that I aspire to someday...also thanks for those YouTube videos (wish I had found them sooner).

Let me know how many inches off the ground you'll be moving it. And I'll do a foot extension test with a piece of cardboard leaving against the screen frame, cut to the height you give me.

Thanks for the room props! It's been a long time coming. The 15th and final episode of the build series is coming soon!

Since we are going for an immersive 16x9 screen, and in our height constrained room, the screen will be barely off the floor. In the case of 16x9 content, we will end up not completely reclining (compromises). For 2.35 type content, I can project the image on the top part of the screen giving a clearance on the bottom of about 25 inches. If you don’t mind checking for 25 inches, I would really appreciate it. I may be able get another 2 inches by moving the screen even more closer to the ceiling but worried that there wouldn’t be enough clearance to remove the screen from the french cleats.

Thanks a bunch! I allllmost went with the Jives. Literally, I changed my mind on the day of placing my order, as I stood back and realized there would still be plenty of side isle width with the Tributes (with add 3.5” of width to each side of the Jives). THe Jives are still a really great chair, and I reached out to numerous owners over the last couple years, all of which sing it’s praises for being comfortable without taking up a boatload of space. Honestly, if I had not had a chance to sit in the Tributes at a friend’s house, I probably would have still gone with the Jives anyway.

Hey, you could move it up if you wanted to. My screen is literally floor to ceiling (pic attached) and I have 3/4” of space above the screen frame to remove frame from French cleats when I need to. It’s not a walk in the park to do, but definitely doable with two people, and I’ve done it before.



Now, I will say that with my floor-to-ceiling screen, I can fully recline in the front row, and still view the entire image (foot only enters field of vision of the screen frame, but not the screen material itself.

25” is very easily visible for sure....double-checked at and no obstruction of any sort.
