  4. At Preston Cinema, our products remain serviceable as long as technologies are available and we can source parts. As we stopped selling the Analog V+F Micro Force Zoom Control in 1999, we haven't had replacement boards for several years. Critical parts for these units have been obsolete for some time, and we've been unable to source suitable replacements. As a result, as of February 19, 2016, we can no longer service any Analog Micro Force Controls prior to V+F2. This includes Analog Film Only, 12/24V, and V+F Micro Force Zoom models. Similarly, there are no replacement boards for the Hand Unit 1, Transmitter 1, MDR1, Transmitter 2 and G3 transceiver boards for MDR-2s, Focus/iris units and Radio Micro Force Zoom units. Original parts and equivalents are mostly obsolete and due to our diminishing supply, the service of these products will be discontinued as of April 1, 2016. We apologize for any inconvenience and will continue to service our other discontinued products: Analog V+F2 Micro Force, V+F lens Control single channel motor driver, MDR-2 and Hand Unit 2 (without the transmitter.) Here is the full list of products that have or are reaching end of life: · Analog Film Only Micro Force Zoom Controls · Analog 12/24V Micro Force Zoom Controls · Analog V+F Micro Force Zoom Controls · Hand Unit 1 · Transmitter 1 · MDR-1 · Transmitter 2 · G3 boards for MDR2s, Focus/iris units, Radio MF Zoom units · UHF units · Micro Servo · Digital Lens Control · Power Pod · Heden M26T motor (serviceable by Heden Engineering in Sweden) If you have any questions please email or call us. Thank you for your continued support. Alanna Berkson Technical Sales Preston Cinema Systems Office: 310.453.1852 alanna@prestoncinema.com

  12. INCREASING/DECREASING THE DRAG OF THE FOCUS KNOB ON A PRESTON HU3 PART 1: 1) Assemble tools. You will need a 1.27mm allen wrench (I went cheapo/Harbor Freight), a medium Phillips Head screwdriver/bit, a small Phillips Head screwdriver/bit, and maybe even a very thin and strong instrument to pry/encourage displacement; I used a razor-blade. 2) Remove any pre-marked or blank focus rings 3) Turn Handunit on its side so that the flatside of the focus knob is looking up at you 4) Remove the two Phillips Head screws using the small screwdriver/bit, and then remove these items. Try inverting the handunit so that the plate simply drops out of its slot. If this doesn't work, gently use the razor/similar device to slip between the plate and housing to pry it out. 5) This is what you will see when the plate is off. Pay special attention to the fact that there are 3 holes exposed with in the semi-circular slots at the top and bottom; This is where you'll be making your adjustment. Also of special note is that large, silver Phillips head screw right in the center; This will most likely be loose -- right now -- but after desired drag is reached it should be quite tight.
