Hi Everyone,

I was wondering if anyone out there has an old master 5" monitor that they aren't using anymore. I was told at tiffen that the cost to replace the high voltage
power supply would cost $ 1250. for the part and 3 hours labor at $ 95 . an hour.
Anyone out there have any suggestions? Anyone out there flying the transvideo
6" cinemonitor III ? I'm interested in your feedback.

thank you ,

Hey Rick,

Didn't we tell you to stay away from that rig???

$1600.- Bucks doesn't sound to bad for a Monitor repair, especially for a High Voltage Power Supply. I remember my first estimate for my Power Supply for my PRO 1, $8000.- Plus... Before they declared it as a total loss.
I would take it in consideration. Also your Insurance should cover that repair, minus dedacable, if you have the Mechanical failire clause in your Policy.

Anyhow...

Jon Myers has a Master Rig that he uses for Rentals, he also has a monitor that was living in his Living room the last time I saw it. The rig goes always out with a 7" Panasonic LCD.

Jon also uses his Transvideo Cine III on his own Rig as primary Monitor. You can contact him through this forum, he is a member, or call me for his number (818-448-2639).

Good Luck.

I know Ron Waters also has a backup 5" CRT for his Master rig, I sold him my old package. I had the whole sled overhauled at Tiffen, and that Hi-voltage power supply had to be replaced. Once they figured out that it was a problem they went ahead and replaced it without calling me. Cost about what you are talking about. But I coulda' killed 'em, cause I had that spare 5" sitting around I coulda taken the pwr. supply from.

Anyway now Ron has two really good 5" master CRT monitors, maybe he would want to sell you one.

You can reach him @ (917) 763 3744.
