    Hi all ,
    1st post here , and I am afraid I am going to ask lots of questions , in the hope of drawing on your wealth of plasmatic knowledge :)

    So I have a very old , but extreamly well built NEC plasma , its A plasmasync 4210w 42" screen. of course it is no match for the high end plasmas of today , but it would definatly give the 1k range a run for there money. This puppy cost 8 grand when it came out i believe.

    So it has developed a fault , on the screen a strip about 3 cm wide has appeared , it runs a little less then half way up the screen and is slighyly to the right.

    This I am informed , is due to a blown ribbon that is bonded to the panel ( essentially there are ribbons accross the top and the bottom of panel that control the picture for that area.

    Now a chap in london contacted me , informing me that his company can repair this fault. they have a machine that can remove bonded ribbon and replace and re bond it with another.

    Now NEC dont reapir this model anymore so I am going to go for it.
    but I have no box , I was wondering if anyone knows of a place where i could order a flat pack box ?
    Or is there anyone in the peterborough area , who could perhaps lend me there 42" box ( will gladly give recompense).


    anyone ?

    or have any of you had simuler repair jobs done ? apprently its quite a new technique ?

    Also I am looking for a table stand for the plasma, its quite old so I think that may prove tricky , as I think you need a specific type for the NEC ones.

    anyway thanks for your time, I look foward to your comments
    nice to be here :hiya:

    Welcome mate, anyone who repairs plasmas should be able to offer you a soft bag or hard flightcase to be sent out for a small charge.
    There are a few universal stands partington feet etc and Unicol probably do one see www.unicol.com email them the model number and they will be able to quote you a price etc.
