  1. Correction: there’s white noise on the centre channel via Dolby prologic. I’ll open her up and check for faults.
  2. Good news lads. I finally had some spare time today. i disconnected everything but the main speakers, reset to factory settings then switched on again. It went into protect mode then back to normal. So I switched off, connected tv (rca’s) and switched on again. All ok so far. Currently playing YouTube : ZZ Top with John Fogherty play Creedence best hits! Great to have my baby back!
  3. My beloved NAD AV716 goes into Protect mode about a minute after switching on. Disconnected all but main speakers and still does it. Switched to an input which has nothing connected and does it still. Next step, Diagnose DSP, Caps, etc. If I can’t diagnose repair myself, I will get a pro repair. If you don’t know, these AV Receivers are amazing for stereo music. Hope she’s back to normal soon.
  4. Item: B&W Solid Subwoofer Location: Caloundra, Sunshine Coast, QLD Price: $250 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Upgraded Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Bowers & Wilkins produced the Solid range of Home Theatre speakers back in the 90's so I do believe it makes this subwoofer a vintage item Lovingly cared for and never overdriven. Remarkable quality and depth for an 8" Sub. Acoustically engineered by Bowers & Wilkins, with cabinet designed by legendary Morten Villers Warren, the PowerBass provides amazing sonic performance in a compact package! Original manual included! The woofer has a rubber surround, so it lasts forever, unlike the foam surrounds which deteriorate over time. Can hear working if you're local. For Specifications, see picture attached. Pictures:

  7. Greetings Perthian. Great to have you onboard.
  8. UPDATE: The IN78 had previously been worked on by an amateur. I discovered the colour wheel had been replaced with a cheap import which was so small it didn't even cover the hole and light tunnel. Replacing it with the IN76 colour wheel worked a treat! All working exceptionally well on my mid grey projection screen. Now calibrating for two scenario's; 1 Ambient setting. 2 Pitch Dark room. Fortunately the IN78 has 3 Presets. I will include some pictures when I'm done.
  9. Thanks Quark. I have a sneaky suspicion the former owner installed a cheap lamp from Ebay.
  10. Recently I acquired two Infocus projectors, one being the IN78 and the other In76. Both are approximately 11 years old, so parts are very scarce. The IN78 had lost its red tones which means the colour wheel has faded and obviously requires replacing. The IN76 had a big, black dot in the centre of the screen which usually means the DMD chip failed or the light magnifying lens is burnt or the light tunnel has collapsed. Pulling apart the IN76 I discovered the light tunnel had indeed collapsed so i removed and cleaned the tunnel pieces and glued back together with QuickFix UltraRepair. It's flexible, high-temp glue suitable for glass and quick drying too. Put it in the fridge to give it more working time! Well I switched it on in a still open state however the black dot remained. Next step, remove all other parts just to get the Optical Engine out. Opening the Optical Engine revealed the culprit - an acrylic internal magnifying light lens which was burnt. I'll provide pictures below. Well, I cannot obtain a new lens anywhere unless I find another In72/74/76/78. So, now I've now come to the conclusion that the IN76 is for parts only now. Hence, the colour wheel will be used in the IN78 which is better due to the DMD DarkChip3 technology. What's more, I've now got spare bulbs and parts! Hopefully this helps anyone else with their fault finding or repair.
  11. Thanks for the warm welcome guys - I'm sure I'll find what I'm looking for and more on StereoNet.
  12. G'day fellow audiophiles! I'm an avid enthusiast of great sound and also an integration business owner. I love all things sound and quality vision products too. Looking forward to getting to know some of you. If you're on the Sunshine Coast, contact me and we can share our enthusiasm for stereo etc. For more info, check out my profile.
