Hi all

I have an older IMP hummingbird monitor, I took it out the case the other day and it seems the screen is de-laminating or something

I can't seem to find details to contact the manufacturer

Has IMP gone out of business as their website doesn't work nor do email addresses

Or if there is someone who could possibly repair the monitor?

Richard,

I suspect that the LCD panel is the same as the MKV's hummingbird V2 monitor .

If so you can eater give them a call or try to find replacement yourself .

I have changed MKV's panel twice for friend operator ,once we bought replacement from MKV  and the second time Ive found replacement to the original ( the original NEC panel is not inproduction animore).

The replacement Ive found was with LED backlite and different mounting points ,but it was quite easy to adopt .

Unfortunately I haventwrote down the number of the new panel..... I do think that I have somewhere the cracked original dough . If you need ,I can try to dig it.

As I remember ,I think that the price of the panel from MKV was something like 720 eur, but it was long time ago.

I hope this information help at least a bit!

 Cheers!

Nikolay Kerezov

Cinetronic can repair your monitor with a new screen, optically bonded, and with led backlight.  The screen is also brighter than the original.  $850

Ok I never knew the nits value, I quite like this monitor although viewing angle is quite shit, I do like the weight and feel of it,

Turn around is usually a couple days on these.  Once ordered, it takes about 2 weeks to receive the screen and get it bonded.
