Hi All,

Does anyone know anybody who repairs modulus 3000"s ? The small flux copasitor next to the
whatchamacallit broke off the thingamagig .lol . Anyway, I used to go to a guy named hamlet, but he isn't always the fastest and very hard to get hold of. Any suggestions? thanks in advance. Rick

David Hable at "Cramped Attic". He's been repairing and modifying Modulus' for years.
He's in Canada, so there will be some shipping involved. But his work is top notch with very quick turnaround (from my experience).

All info is on his website - http://www.crampedattic.com/

Good luck Rick!

David Hable is the man! I managed to fry my Modulus twice in about a two week span and he had it back, fixed, and BETTER than new faster than I thought was possible on both occasions. He even fixed my bad cable which was the culprit! I can't recommend him enough.

Happy to report CIT now only takes Months instead of eons to repair the Modulus they designed. 80% of the time the repair is good the first time. Billing is down to occasional weeks. Hamlet is a real nice guy and his English has really improved ( he sells his own stuff) - no answering mashine. The folks in Canada ( also selling a low powered version) are nice and have done wonders and disasters. Terry West will help in a pinch but has better things to do. We don't repair, but make cables ( most in stock) i can hook you up with some used ones- generally its a very sad state of affairs. ( boy did I just make enemies) wolf
PS the Canatrans now is very stable and needs no repairs. still 4K
the MODULUS 5000 is out. $ 1700 approx. it has a built in downconverter and a 3000 to transmit analog video as usual. THe price is right. Have no personal experience with it. ( by the way producers can get permission now to use Modulus etc. for video assist)
I have some license free Coherent 900 for Blow out prices. - write
