    Hi,
    the focus/G2 block of my Barco G 801s start to make a ticking sound as soon as I turn on the projector and stops after 5-10minutes. Is this block near his “death”? Someone can help me?
    (the projector worked for about 11500 hours and I got it used)
    Thanks,
    Antonio

    If this is a rapid clicking then it's time to swap the focus unit out. It will be arcing somewhere. these things tend to be age related rather than hours. Turn the lights out and you may be able to see where the trouble is.
    It might be worth just reseating the contacts but I doubt it will help.
    If you are loosing focus too then be carefull as the unit is not long for this world.

    Thank you for answering Roland,
    tourned out the light but I did'n see anything, no arcs or something, the focus seems to stay locked but I hadn't still accurately set-up the projector so I'm not so sure.
    Anyway I'm lookig for the unit, hope I find it at reasonable price ( how much you think would be reasonable for a second hand one?)

    I can not comment favourably for the "Croydon" seller .

    has used MANY different names to sell on e bay,

    not just name changes BUT different accounts,

    Known to bid up his own items,

    would just say be careful

    I've got stock on this item if you need one. No idea what to charge though.
    I've got stock on all parts for Barco 801, 808, 708 both s and non s.
    I also got a set of Cine9 tubes with rating 8 that I'm not sure what to do with.

    Let me know if I can help.
