Is this some kind of a joke? I have never even removed tubes that were this bad in fifteen years. They are not only worn, they're burned in too!

That may be the worst wear I've ever seen, and I've seen ALOT of burned tubes. As the previous poster noted, not just heavy wear, but static image burn too. You will definitely notice it, and any projector with that much burn has been badly abused, and should be considered a "parts" machine only in regards to purchase price. Keep looking unless you're getting a real steal on it.

Mild wear, can easily be ignored, but that is almost burned black. Light output and color fidelity will be totally compromised.

You guys are all exaggerating!


I've come up with a new ulta-wie screen format called 200:1. I still see an area of virgin phosphor at the tops and bottoms of the tubes that can be used..:)


The nice thing to see here is that this Sony set was _VERY_ well set up, using the max phosphor area, and the chassis obviously outlasted the tubes..:)

Wear???? What wear? That's fried to a crisp.


I'm still in tears looking at that.

:) That's a good one. I had to look at how many posts you had to see if you were joking.

I sure pity the guy that had to watch it for those hours between 5,000 and 11,000 - thats a LOT of hours to spend in shear, constant torture!

That type of image burn pattern is typical for a G70 that has been running computer desktop images for 4000 hours or so. Believe it or not the video is still watchable after a couple of beers to numb the pain and blur the vision.
