    since it is my first post I will be brief. I have two projectors, one is a sony vph 1040 and the other is an Electrohome ECP-4000/4100?? the sony has 07MS CRTs and the electrohome has SD187s. From everything I have read the two are interchangeable.My reason is the tubes on the ECP are burned so bad it is almost unviewable, but the sony's are beautiful and I would like to swap them Thanks

    I'm not super-familiar with either of these projectors, and so I can't answer your question. Perhaps someone else here might know, but in the meantime, if nobody knows I'd also recommend you ask at the CRT forum at AVS. They know everything about these things...

    And also the procedure for tube swapping if you've not done that before.

    I do know that the ECP series uses Sony tubes, but I have no idea if they are interchangeable, or if you need to do some modifications to swap them.

    Thank you both for the quick responses. I found out over at AVS that they are in fact interchangeable and the 07MS tubes are just a brighter version
