    Hi All,
    Sat down tonight fired up my PJ on for about 10mins i heard some faint crackling from the rear rght hand side (looking at the PJ towards the rear) the crackling got my attention then i got some fizzing sounds turned it off but now refuses to start,fans come on but the CRT's are not on,took the panels off then put them straight back on,i don't know what i'm looking for:(
    Bloody thing...feel like kicking it....probably break my foot though.
    It's enough to drive a man to bulb PJ....right on christmas as well great timing:(
    Any help advice & suicide counselling greatly app'd.
    Tim

    Roland:Don't happen to be busy do you....stupid question ;)

    Bummer, hopefully it will be something easy to fix. Might be worth pulling the boards out and see if you can see anything obvious but otherwise its time for the Barco Doctor to make a house call perhaps :(

    Hi Paul,
    All i know at the moment speaking to Curt Palme is that it "may" be the "quad" or the "hv splitter" we have determined that the PJ is in HV protect mode.
    Hopefully Roland can shed more light although he hasn't posted in last couple of days so i guess he's up to his eyeballs in work.
    Cheers.
    Tim.

    I think maybe you have blown some capasitators in the power supply. Take out your powersupply and check, if you have a leak.

    Happend to me once when I fired up a BG800 which not had been used for a couple of years. The shock was simply too much.

    You could also check for bad solder joints under the transformer. A typical spot of problems on the 800 series.

    Good Luck.

    Hi Andre,
    Thanks for the reply, i have Roland Coming tomorrow & he is going to look at the PJ, all will be revealed...but we have determined that the PJ is in HV protection mode & it looks as if the Quadrupler or the HV Splitter (or both) are at fault.

    My 1000th CRT post.:clown:

    Tim I've just seen you have considered changing to a lamped projector over this failure I knew you were depressed about this and considering suicide. but I didn't realise it was THAT bad.

    I'm happy from the diagnostics that you have given that this is an EHT problem. I will come armed with bits shouldn't be a problem. see you tomorrow.

    One more pulled back from the brink. Problem was the Quadrupler

    Hopefully Tim has now been able to out from the corner of the room and has stopped rocking back and forth and making that really annoying clicking noise.:p

    Tim the reason it failed is you are not watching enough films:devil:

    glad I could help:cool:
