Last week I know it worked, it was clean, and from memory did not have too many hours, this week it was in the bottom of a deep skip! I had even asked the guys that should it be going I want to know, but there we have it . First visual inspection shows the blue lens smashed, I hope the tubes are OK. Removing the front part of the lens shows the smashed remains below. Heavy marks on the case and blue lens show which way it was thrown ? in. What can you do Sorry lots of frowning smilies. Hopefully they will become grins when I get the beast home, dry and tested. With the lens broken does that mean fluid leaked into the casing? Too early to tell I guess. Roland if you are reading this, should it be a worker, what can I expect to pay for a lens, or would the HD-6's on my ECP 3100 fit? It is a sad day to find a worker skipped and broken. BTW I have also rescued the RCVDS 800 switcher fitted with numerous cards. More info to come when I've checked it out. Regards to all. Bob.
