WANTED: Itek 430 PAL attachment parts
« on: March 10, 2015, 08:55:00 AM »
Hey everyone,

Does anybody have a reliable source for replacement Itek camera/platemaker parts?

Our Itek 430 has been giving up the ghost for years now, but keeps getting resurrected and pathced up like some unholy Frankenstein's monster.

Now it looks like the PAL attachment is the latest portion to go, and I've been asked to look this up on the Internet (never mind that I'm already doing the jobs of three people here...).  After banging my head against the monitor yesterday afternoon, it occurred to me that I should ask you fine folks... :cheesy: 


Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.


Cheers, John the Fontaholic :drunk3:

Sorry, no help, but...

oh you poor bastard.
I haven't seen or heard of these things in years.
I still have the smell of PMTs in my nose.  GAWD, I must be sick.

You might need this.

It's more like grip, grip, grip, noise, then spin and 2 feet in and feel shame.

All I know is, the guy they got in last time to repair this thing, looked like he could've used that Resurrection card himself... o_O

Must be friends with my CAT88 tech.

If it keeps running much longer my next service call will require a ouija board.
