After over a year of flawless operation, I turned in my projector and got a "No Sync" message on the screen. Unpluged RGBHV cables from projector and pluged into a monitor which worked fine so must be something in projector. Any suggestions? What simple things can I try first?

Probably a good cleaning and reseating of all the boards is what's needed.


Here is a link to parts and boards of the Marquee. Reseating of the Focus board and HDM is just pulling it out and putting in in a few times to clean the contacts, you dont have to remove any connections to do this. Just pull up and put back in a few times. http://www.curtpalme.com/Electrohome...e_Layout1.shtm


Location of FCM and HDM.




on the hdm their is a daughter board that also need to be removed and reconected.

Next on the CLM there are some chips that can be taken out from their

sockets, do one at a time. you will need a IC puller from radio shack to do this.


Location of CLM:




CLM out of Set showing chips.




chip puller pic:




Clean all chips with some contact cleaner or Denatured Alcohol.


I use DeOxit:




Do one chip at a time and remember how it came out so you put it back in the same way.

Yep.. Did the Curt Palme Marquee Teardown once before about a year and half ago when I was having a convergence problem and fixed it then so here we go again.... WoooHoooo!!

if you already de-oxidized the connectors a year ago I will be surprised if it fixes it again. Oxidation shouldn't really build up that fast except maybe in sub-tropical climates

Did someone select the wrong input perhaps. Press 'source', 01.


Mebbe a kid/wife thought source 02 would be a good idea.

Curt - I don't let anyone touce the projector remote, but I will check to see what source it's on.


So I did a complete teardown and put it all back together and now I have NOTHING! I cant even get a menu on the screen. Any suggestions? I'm about to repeat the teardown again to see if I simply missed something or if something is not quite pushed in tight.

OK... Got sync and got picture.. WOOOHOOO! However, the picture is upside down and reversed. I will search through the forum and will post another thread regarding this.... How do I reverse the horizontal and vertical scan?
