Sim2 CX3 Lite - Not Working - Free to a good home

Recommended Posts

Item:             Sim2 Cx3 Lite 3-chip Projector 
Location:     Melbourne Eastern Suburbs 
Price:           FREE 
Item Condition:     Not working 
Reason for selling:    Replacing after a long useful life 
Payment Method:      N/a 
Extra Info:     



After a long useful life I am replacing my old Sim2 Cx3 3-chip DLP projector.   The fan was playing up for a long while and ultimately ceased to function.   I did look around to see if there was anyone around to repair it but Sim2 have moved their distributor so many times no-one really wants to touch these old projectors.   One guy, who was the Sim2 service guy at one point, had a look at it.   He seemed to think it could be more than just the fan but he didn't want to try fix it - and apparently parts are a pain to get out of Sim2 in Italy.   


So that's full disclosure.  If I don't get any takers, I am taking it down the road to the electronic recyclers, but I thought I would at least post it on here in case anyone wants it for parts or to have a go fixing it.   If you are not in Melbourne, I am happy to ship it, but I am not paying for shipping as its not going to cost me anything to recycle.

      I've had this projector for a few years and have found that I'd don't really use my HT room that much anymore so I"ve decided to sell it all and use the room for something else
      As you can see from the picture it only has 399 hours on the globe which from memory is meant to last up to 3000 hours
      Apologies to all the neat people for the horrible cable management in the picture..
      If you are interested in a 120 inch screen as well you can have it for an extra $50

      Form and function is something of a SIM2 specialty — it separates SIM2 products from the rest.
      SIM2 has always been known for pushing the limits of design to perfect the balance between form and function and the SuperCube is the perfect expression of this art. Combining a stunning glass cabinet with a projection engine powerful enough to handle the largest screen, the SuperCube is the ideal home cinema projector. The SuperCube is built around sophisticated video processing electronics that ensure all video sources look their best. With an RGB color wheel and improved colorimetry and color saturation delivered by SuperCube and a new 270W lamp takes the light output to 3,000 lumens.
      The typical application for a SuperCube is the small/medium home theatre and family room.
      DLP® is the picture technology of choice for the SuperCube. It utilizes a Full HD 1080p (1920 x 1080 pixel resolution) chipset from Texas Instruments that, combined with top-notch processing, enables the projector to deliver crisp, smooth and clear images.
      And, thanks to SIM2 3D technology, SuperCube has the ability to convey the extended depth of 3D images that totally involve the viewer in the movie experience
      Made-in-Italy elegance: The SuperCube features a typically stylish ‘made-in-Italy’ design: a distinctive, contemporary cabinet enriched by a luxurious crystal finish by designer Giorgio Revoldini.
