You could also have a electronics technician troubleshoot and repair your
screens.  You know. Transistors, diodes, triacs, capacitors which are all
available online. Hardly anyone even thinks of that option anymore.  Let me
know if I can help you.

Subject: [Histonet] help needed to find parts for tissue processor

Hi ,  I have two MVP-1 tissue processor  that are still in great shape
except that both have lost the display  screens.   Other than that they are
wonderful tissue  processors.    I am told by the folks that "know" this
machine that I can swap out these screens from any working model from  any
of the following processors.   The RMC models,  the MVP-1  or MVP-2 the
older 1530 , the Renaissance processor.   They are  all similar since this
machine changed hands so many times.  It was a  Fisher Scientific,  then
Instrumentation Lab,  then Vantana  and so on.   The problem is that the
parts are not available any  longer.    My only hope if I want to continue
using these  processors is to find a parts machine or one that is sitting in
the basement  of someones hospital or lab perhaps for years.  So, if you
have one or  know where to find one I would very much like to hear from you.
I bought these two processors about 2 years ago from a  government auction
still new in the ori
ginal crate  unopened.    I really would like to get them  up and running
