Does anyone have any used or new blue or green 1209 tubes for sale? Before anyone says it YES I know barco sells them and VDC rebuilds them, but I am looking for a cheaper alternative.

You, me, and the rest of the forum members are looking for them...:)




You have the equivalent of a Ferrari. Trying to find an engine for $50.00 ain't going to be an easy thing.


Sorry, that sounds snide, but it's the truth..:(

Well put, Curt.


Good, used 1209 crts are as rare as hen's teeth.

If you have a good 9" crt, you hang on to it.


The only viable option is either new or VDC.

88crxhybrid,


I know this doesn't answer your question, but FWIW a friend of mine who is experienced in CRT projectors, just retubbed a 1209 this week with B + G VDC rebuilds and was very happy with the results. He said they dialed right in and the settings (astigmatism, etc...) were very close to the original Barco tubes.
