The #1 maintenance issue with these projectors is that the projector will no longer advance from the buttons on the side or from the remote. This situation is caused by a broken celenoid link. If you have a GOOD mechanical aptitude, you may be able to accomplish this repair on your own.
Download the free instructions for replacing the link, rivet and focus gears here now.
You can order the parts from HERE and we have the manuals online for downloading free from HERE. When replacing the link and rivet, you should also order the 2 focus gears FM-GEAR and 167348 as they will break when trying to attempt this repair. If you have a lower end model that does not have remote or auto focus, you will not have these gears. You will find it easier to replace the link and rivet with these gears off, so break them off before you start the repair then replace them AFTER you have the link and rivet replaced. The two gears are the salmon colored gears shown in the picture to the left.
Yes we do have MANY more parts for these series of projectors including lenses and remotes. All can be ordered HERE.
