    I recently hot hold of a Barco Data 600 for a pretty good price, as a total newbie to CRT's, I have a few questions about parts wearing out etc...

    I already knew before I got a CRT, the risks of tubes with burnt in images and not to display static images for long periods of time etc, I have looked into the lenses of all 3 tubes and I cannot see any visible burn. I must admit, I have yet to venture further and take the lenses out and look at the tubes in closer detail, but when I put a white screen into the projector, just a plain white feed from RGBS, I cannot see any lines, or burnt in images at all, probably a good sign :)

    I checked the fans for dust, a sign of use, and there is a small amount of very fine black dust on the chrome grills, so that would suggest that this unit has not had much use :)

    So, what other parts are there inside that are replacable, or wear out? I hear stories of EHT boards wearing out and a splitter board wearing out, perhaps at one stage. Should I be concerned ?

    Many thanks for your help! ;)
