I recently got my hands on a Barco Data 600 for a very good price of £175, I am a total newbie to this area :) but I have inspected the unit, apart from a bit of (what looks like) oil stains on the case lid (I needa clean that soon...), the PJ is in good, shape:


Not much dust on the 2 case fans.

I can't see any form of tube burn on any of the tubes (I have projected a white image from a computer running at 640x480, and can't see any dark areas)


Would you all agree that I have found quite a good bargain here ?


I have managed to converge it myself, again, total newbie, set up the PJ using the test grid, took a few hours, but I think I've got it more or less ok, I just want to check to see if I can get it any better, the blue tube seems a little out of focus, tried adjusting the lens to no avail, so I might try the electronic focus later on (anyone know where those controls are located ?).


One of the main points I read on these forums, was making sure that the usage of the tube area is large as possible, but not too large (possible major tube damage? :eek: ), any pointers as to how much of the CRT I should use?


Many thanks :)

Hey,


I think the search is mal-functioning today.


I would agree the original posted seemed to get a good deal.


I don't know what types of control you have for convergence on that particular projector so I can't help there.


The Installation manual for my Sony seems to give a good order of adjustments that I think could even be applicable to other machines but only if they have similar controls.


Good LUck,


Brian

follow the link in my signature, it should help even thought it's geared at Sony's.


The blue is intentionally de-focused. The eye is relatively insensitive to poor blue focus and when the blue is de-focused you get a slightly brighter image. If you mess with the blue focus your gonna mess up your grey scale.
