    Default LK-PD2 Projector 500mW

    I bought this in a group buy a couple years ago. I have upgraded to an analog projector so I am selling this one. It works perfectly and is in great cosmetic condition. It has very few hours on it as I have only used it for one backyard show. I have another Laserking projector I got at the same time that I used much more frequently. I know this is a toy compared to most projectors here, but this is a good model for someone looking to get started with scanning.

    Output is advertised as 500mW, but on the meter it averages about 495mW with peaks as high as 530mW.
    It has TTL color which means each laser can be on or off, so you only get 7 colors.

    It can be used as a standalone unit or with a DAC and ILDA cable. There is not much control over the built in functions, but they are nice to watch, especially the lumia. I have used this projector with Pangolin's QuickShow and BEYOND software (w/FB3 DAC), and both work great.

    I have attached links to pictures and videos if you want to see it in action.

    I want to get $425 plus shipping (I will use UPS Ground) for the projector. It ships double boxed in the original packaging. Shipping will probably be between $25-$50 depending on where you are.

    I also have a nearly new Pelican 1550 case that I will include for $100, but shipping will be more, probably between $65 to $100.

    Ships to continental US only.

    To add:

    I picked up a pair of these probably during the same group buy as you. Although I've heard of a problem or two with the green in these units, mine have not had any issues. Also worth noting is these systems expose considerable control over things like x/y size, rotation speeds, selectable gratings, etc over DMX. The "user manual" has a full DMX implementation chart in the back, so if you care to do some mapping you can actually achieve a pretty high degree of control over its internal functions.

    Good luck with the sale!

    Thanks. I've never used the projector with DMX, so I'm not familiar with the capabilities there. There is also a mode where the projector can sync to music with a built in mic, but I have never used it. I have heard from others that the feature is mostly useless anyway.

    Yeah, I'll second Hitekvoop's sentiment that the LK-PD2 is a robust starter projector and a great candidate for upgrading. I detailed much of my first upgrade of my PD2 here: http://www.photonlexicon.com/forums/...ghlight=lk-pd2

    If someone wanted to do a full upgrade on a PD2 in today's world, I would consider using the X-Laser amp paired with a set of Scannermax 506's. They X-Laser amp is tiny and runs on 12V. I would replace the PD2's PSU with a good, but small 12V psu and run everything off of it. You'd need to expand the size of the open hole used for graphics A-LOT to accommodate for 506's wide scan angle potential.

    If desired, the green could easily be upgraded with a 120mW 520nm green with a G-2 lens or a 400-700nm single element glass lens from Aixiz. Replacing the drivers with analog drivers from Lasershowparts, FlexMods or the new 3 in one driver. (The blues and reds diodes are probably fine as-is for most folks once driven by a good analog driver).

    Before any upgrades, you'd have a good lumia box with basic graphics/beam capability. After all the upgrades, you'd have an analog, high performing, graphics/lumia box.

    Good luck with the sale.

    What do you want for the case? As you know, I have an LK-PD1 and am a hop, skip and a jump away.

    I was hoping to get $100. It's practically brand new, and Amazon has it for $129.

    The foam is cut out for the LK-PD2, but I still have the foam I removed so you could glue it back in and recut if needed.

    I work just north of Wilmington near the Concord Mall, I could meet you there.
