Hi all,


I've probably got a snowflakes chance in hell....


but here goes:


I need a replacement blue CRT for my Sony 1271. It is a 07MP tube, and for those who aren't aware, these are the same tubes fitted to the Sony 1270, 1251, 1271.


They were also fitted to BD & BG 800, but I think these have different HT leads, and I don't know if they can be used.


Anyway, I'm looking for new, or preferably, second hand with minimal wear (as long as I can see a photo before purchase).


I am in Melbourne Australia, and am know to a few people here as a trustworthy guy. Will pay upfront.


Shipping works out to around $30 with INS from the US, Canada I would assume to be similar.


Hope someone can help.


Please send me an email, or PM.

Pricing in Au should actually be cheaper than in the US...


and you're right, they're impossible to find in good used shape, sorry!

I think I've got a complete new RGB set and at least one more new blue by itself. The first thing is I wouldn't know is how much to ask for one and the second thing would be my extrodinary fear of shipping out of the US. I recall that I paid about $600+ US the last time I bought a blue tube from a distributor, but what are they worth today?


By the way, these have Sony leads on them and since I'm a Barco fanatic I usually just change out the lead myself when I'm about to install one in an 800.


What carrier can you ship with for $30?

PM sent...


FYI, the 07MP tubes are wholesaled for around $900 australian from Sony which is around $450 US.


VDC quoted me ~$500US for a brand new one retailed by them.


so I am looking to spend less than that.


Thanks for the replies guys, i really do appreciate it.


Also, in Australia we are lucky to get NEC tubes super cheap, but the same can't be said for Sony and Barco...
