Hi Dave.  That happened to us at Video Post within weeks of installing our
URSA Gold last winter.  Our colorist did several effects and latter
dicovered numerous random razor sharp diagonal burn marks.

When we reported this to Rank, their response was "that wasn't supposed to
happen" and that we were supposed to wait at least 600 hours before trying
any tricks with a new tube. (Now kids, don't try this at home...)  What a

Simply put, no further effects are now performed on the URSA (or will be in
the future)...  And we refused to pay for the new replacement tube.

So nice to see you on the net, Dave.  This is my first posting.  You know
