Anybody can help me?
Need the specification (Volt/ampere) of the speakerlights.

Is in this box 1 wrong lamp (strong)
or 3 wrong (weak)? :blush:

Also needed:
Anybody owns the missing labels "audio visual"
Or can give me a good quality close up shots, for reproduction of paper? :smooch:

Labels are printed out now on a strong paper.
Then laminated. :yes:
Should fit.

a few LEDs fail, must look why.
And implant the correct lamps in the speakers.

Grills new painted black and a new aerial.
Big contact cleaning.
Some work, but it´s worth :thumbsup:

Thanks andre! :thumbsup:

btw: can you give me the right specification of the lamps? :smooch: :angelic:

So, the labels are mounted provisoric.
Fix after respraying the grills

working

as you can see, the right one is too strong (or the others to weak?!?) :hmmm:
only a few LEDs are failing

marvelous decal reproduction, roman--

except....you might want to downsize them about 20% to be accurate
4 1/4 " for the AV
3 34" for the DL

and you could also give both some 3/32" thickness by sticking then on
black wood or plastic --before your final application
------------------

and monchito is so right about the leds --
they are each dependent on a string of others that are
wired in some wacky // random set-up :huh: :dunce: :annoyed: :-)
--------------------------

hope it soon becomes one of your keeper-for-life favs :thumbsup: :-D

:agree: with you , ira.
They are a little to big.
Because of this reason, i made some different sizes (sheet in pic 2 on the right).
Also glueing it on some plastic parts i will make in the company.

For the LEDs i will open the box soon.

And please: anybody knows what lamps are needed?! :

Looked inside, the 3 weak ones must be wrong.
you can see, anybody has worked on it.
The strong one is looking original (cable).

Also thought of implanting supra-LEDs instead the lamps.
But they would not work so "warm" and harmonic as lamps. :no:

Looking GREAT, Roman!
Never seen a Hamisonic branded one either.

Have you tried taking out the bright woofer globe and putting it on one of the other 3 dim one's plug, just to make sure it's the globe?

The globes inside are pretty standard, I'd probably find something as close as possible at a local electronics shop and then replace all 4.

Best of luck replacing the 6 dead LEDs. Those ones in the corners of the square array are real pains to replace.



Rock On.
