This is tv man, , wanted to say thanks for the illustration,,, is this part really worth about 2 bills? Or is this just about supply and demand? I’m looking for this part, , but man I thought $190 bulks was too pricy for a chip. … thanks again. …
It’s a chip created by Texas Instruments and it’s basically the same component for all the RPTVs. So they create the price since they have the market cornered. There is some complex circuitry so the 2 bills is somewhat reasonable. Of course, the manufacturers really should be replacing them free of charge since these DMD chips shouldn’t be falling at this rate — manufacturing flaw. Generally $190 — $220 is a decent price. Some companies are jacking the price up to $300 and that is definitely gouging. Have you called your manufacturer to ask them to cover the cost of the new chip?
