The power supply and anamorphic squeeze modifications are the most important. The power supply so you do not fry your tubes and the squeeze so you can get 16x9.

They are both listed in the Mike Parker link above IIRC (which btw Mike's mods really make the PJ amazing.) My 9500LC complete video chain has been updated by Mike...WOW.

If you are getting the PJ from one of the profeesional resellers here, these two mods are done (you are getting it from a source here right????) :D

The only real problem on the Marquees was a batch or so that have LVPS voltages the float up and fry the tube filaments. You can check this with a voltmeter, as well as checking the manufacturing date of the projector too.


Other mods are more performance oriented, such as MP boards, tim's fan mods, etc. Welcome improvements, but certainly not necessary in terms of the reliability of the projector. Perhaps necessary for PQ gurus though ;).

How do you determine if these mods have been done on a potential purchase, where do you get them done if they are not and about what kind of $$$$ are we looking at to get them done? (or are these the mods talked about here
http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...hreadid=209943 )


Also what about fan mods. Are these do-it-yourself type mods ( a kit you purchase or something) or a mod a tech has to do that has done them in the past. What do the fan mods cost?


Thanks

Guys!


The acoustic fan noise mod is available from E-Tech by sending us your lvps, usually a two-day turnaround; we test and fix the filament problem in the price of $249 in the lower 48 states, more if offshore. Look here under Tech Tips, Gray Scale to see how to measure your filament voltage and set gray scale: http://www.etechvideo.com/

Tim

do these bad LVPS show up in 8000 and 8110 ?

Should they have the mod done to prevent damage to the CRTs ?

Also could you please elaborate what are the differences between the 8500 8000 8110+ and is really a big difference in PQ ?

thanks
