So now that a bunch of tech info is
on the site, I thought I’d throw some
troubleshooting tips together to get
your projectors back up and running.
I’ll cover some basic faults in the set,
and how to find out what area the fault
is most likely in. The following tips
pretty much apply to all models, from
1984 to current, but again, keep in mind
that this is a GENERALIZED
troubleshooting guide, your symptoms or
cures may differ.
These tips are just an overview of possible problems with your set. Naturally
there are many other failures or symptoms that can occur, I find at least one
new failure in a projector in a given week that I have not had before. Shoot me
an email or feel free to call if your set is doing something that isn’t covered
here. If I’ve missed anything obvious, I’ll add it.
DISCLAIMER: Use common sense when working on CRT projectors! Lethal
voltages are present, and even a relatively low 300 volts can give you a good
jolt. Never insert or remove a module with a set turned on. Remove the AC power
cord each time you insert or remove a module and wait at least 2 minutes to
discharge the power supply and high voltage. Proceed at your own risk!
