Repair Parts Distributors

We have avoided including suppliers that have been found to be unreliable or to have poor reputations.

Lamp Distributors

There are many other Lamp sellers, including many of the repair parts distributors above. I list these because they have generally supplied primarily OEM lamps and I know servicers and dealers who have dealt with them and find them reputable and reliable. Some offer longer warranties on their lamps (1 year), like ACME and Bursma/Excel and have proven to be very highly respected distributors. I would suggest giving them first shot at your business.


ACME ENTERPRISES OF ORLANDO (Yes, in spite of the name, they are for real)
www.acme-sales.net
6192 EDGEWATER DRIVE
ORLANDO, FL 32810 USA
800-575-9833
Good vendor for common replacement semiconductors such as STK series convergence output ICs. They are very careful to sell only original OEM parts and not cheap substitutes or counterfeit parts. Be sure to check the shipping charges on small orders before ordering, but they have free shipping on orders over $50. I highly recommend them for parts, especially STKs and Osram lamps. They offer a one year warranty on their Osram lamps and have a great cross reference.

ADVANCED LAMPS, LLC.
www.advancedlamps.com
994 North Colony Road #327
Wallingford, CT 06492
United States of America
800-941-5690
90-180 day warranty on lamps
Advanced Lamps sells both OEM lamps and their own lamps made in Taiwan.
OEM lamps have a 90 day warranty and the AL lamps have a 180 day warranty.
Pricing is very low on the AL lamps including the housings. Pricing on OEM lamps is similar to others online. They claim that the AL lamps that they are having made meet the same specs as OEM lamps, but no independent info has been found on them as of May 2009. The owner is Rob Gaul, who is also involved in the custom installation business and was very willing to discuss his products frankly. He monitors the email address below if you have speciic questions about his products.

215 East Main Street , Suite 206
Huntington, New York 11743
631.385.8171
800.522.2701 fax

One year warranty on lamps.
Online users report mixed experience with them for lamps and ICs. I have not been able to find any servicers with any experience using their parts, however. Attempts to call resulted in an answering system that had a full voicemail box. Still waiting for an email response. The company looks like the primarily do business online. Prices are cheap, enough so to be suspect. Without more info it is hard to recommend them.

Re: Repair Parts Distributors

Hi lcaillo,

I had good experience with electronic-repair-kits dot com for a pair of STk chips I ordered for my SONY RPTV. It took one week(the xmax week) from Vancouver to silicon valley for my case. The thing I don't like is, there's no way to track the package shipped.

Best regards,
ljryjj

Re: Repair Parts Distributors

If you need any help to read Electronics Engineering. just visit
Freelancer. com There you can find thousands of coders who are really very helpful on Mechanical Engineering. And use this unique 'TURBOCIRCUITS' word to get some extra feathers.
Have a nice time

Re: Repair Parts Distributors

Any advice for us in Canada? I need some STK's and I would like to get them in the Toronto area at a resonable price, but I worry about knock offs.
Thanks,
Ted

Re: Repair Parts Distributors

Not sure about reliable distributors up there, sorry. I know a few techs in Canada and it is a constant struggle to get many parts.

Re: Repair Parts Distributors

Try Pacific Semiconductor in Vancouver. I have no personal experience with them but some techs up there are happy with them.
