Gemological mircroscope

Postby gemgirl on Sun Sep 28, 2008 10:09 pm

I have an older Portable Gem Lab, (Maxi-lab), from the GIA Gem Instruments. They no longer are making, selling, or repairing these. It was a very expensive unit in a haliburton case. The electronic control panel has malfunctioned and I am no longer able to use any of the unit. My main problem is the the microscope is perfectly usable, except I am unable to get power to the unit. A local electronics repair shop used to repair my equipment for me. They have retired and I am at a loss for what I should do. I am an independent Gemologist and am stuck between a rock and a hard place.

The main problem is that the control panel provides power to my dark field illumination, and a fiber optic light source for over head lighting. If I cannot get the electrical system repaired for the lab, I need to find a compatible base that I can use my American Optical pod with. Hopefully with its own light source.

Can you advise? :? :?

Hi

Sorry, we do not offer repair or replacement parts for any brand. You will need to contact the manufacturer or someone who does independent repair/rebuild on microscopes. Suggest you do a google search for a repair facility in your area.
