    Hi,

    Recently, I bought one set of new HD144 lenses, hoping to improve the picture of my Sony 1272Q CRT projector (tubes are still at low mileage). Now I really have some doubts:

    - Are they anyhow compatible with my projector? (Or is it a no-go)?
    - The fact they are "color corrected" will give me a better, brighter picture?

    Also, if they fit in will I have to recalibrate the tube circuit pots after installing the new lenses (gain, etc.)?

    Any info on the subject (or links) will be highly appreciated!

    Thank you,

    Borg

    I don't think I've ever seen a set of HD144 lenses, so I can't coment too much.
    I have to assume as you bought these for a 1272 they are the 8" version of the 7 " HD145.
    The standard lenses with a 1272 will aleady be multicoated and the tubes have a form of colour correcting in the fluid of the red and green tubes.

    If the lenses you have bought are colour filtered HD 145 They will not fit your projector.

    These lenses were for the XG 75 & 135 I believe.

    HD145 will not fit a Sony 1272 filtered or not.
