I have an old Sony CRT projector that has been sitting in a closet for at least 5 years. Don't know much about it -- it's model VPH-2020Q1 from Sony. Anyone know if it has any value at all? Or should I just throw it away? Thanks!
Throw it away?!?!? You'll get castrated here for even entertatining the idea
It makes a great set for viewing interlaced sources, normal tv, xbox/ps2/gamecube etc. I've been after one to adapt to short throw to make a rear projection cockpit for flying games...but thats just me.
They still go for a coupla hundred, or strip them down and sell the bits.
Why aren't all you throw away crt guys in Australia *sob*
Toss it! Where do you live, and when is trash day?
A 2020Q is shimmed for a 200" diagonal picture. It's got to be pretty dim at that size. I'd re-shim it for 100" or less to get the best out of it. It's doable. It can make a darn nice set, and quiet too.
I found the reference list that Inline used to have prominently displayed on their website and sorry to say your pj is only a video grade model. If it was a 2030Q it would do line doubled stuff too. Oh well, its still good for tv and video games.
Sadly, I am not a tinkerer. Just trying to figure out what to do with an old projector sitting in a closet. Guess I will put it up on Ebay -- have no personal use for it. If anyone here is in the Los Angeles area, feel free to make me an offer!
