Heres the deal. All three of these were working before they slid off a pallet at the warehouse. All three have casing and chassis damage so I wouldn't count on cosmetics. Other than a missing blue tube most parts are still intact. One even fires up and stays on! (The guns all light but won't take a signal) I'd like to get rid of all three as is if someone makes a reasonable offer.
Would anyone care to elaborate on what it would take to convert a 1030 to 1031 to accept line doubling. Yes, this is my first post, I have been watching this forum for a few weeks, after buying a 1030 with a
You can't convert a 1030 to a 1031. I looked into this. The boards and wiring harnesses are different. I have both side by side to examine this. Too bad, I had the same idea. I think it IS possible to modify the 1030 to do this, though. I have not gotten this far at this time due to other projects, but there were other posts on this topic.
I don't think anyone has successfully done this actually. I have both machines also, though my 1030q1 is the later model. I have looked at schematics for both and they have many variatons in actual components not just in one area but all over. The boards are available on sony parts online and most boards have different part numbers between the two.
Your closest option would be to use the good tubes you have to fix a 1031q with bad tubes.
