Testing the fixed projector in style :-) pop quiz, what am I hacking :-) ?
Final result, working like new :-) (taken just before reassembly / heat sink et all). I could not have hoped for a better result.
What do you know. I managed to FIX the fried chip by sanding it down and resoldering the burnt joints. Feels so great to have it working again :-D
Been trying to fix my trusty 15yr old Panasonic projector (PT-AE 900) but now after removing a heat sink, I guess this is likely it :-/ not sure if I should hunt for a donor system. This is one of the three LCD driver chips, and looks like it’s fried from inside. Opinions , tips how one could find spare parts more than welcome.
Finally retired the old 1password setup. Kind of missing the slick UI, but KeePassXC is just more sensible these days.
If anyone at 1password reads this: I really hoped you'd keep around a standalone, 'paid' version of your apps. I bought all of your clients (Mac/Win/iOS) back in the day, but i want to be able to run the solution offline / do my own folder syncing.
