It seems like i read somewhere that some CP gsmo's have problems with their circuit boards or internal workings that need to be replaced. I tried searching the forums but couldn't find anything. Anyone know anything about this? true? false? Thanks.

Yeah, most of the chips are proprietary. When they blow, game's over. Wish I could be the bearer of better news, but it's like driving at night, in rain, towards the Chappaquiddick...

I was looking at GSMO on eBay a couple of weeks ago and researched this somewhat. A google search quickly turned up someone (on another cinematography board answering that same question in 2005 by saying a Culver City repair poutfit has developed a new board that goes in place of a bad circuit board. I do not know anything about it personally but you might want to do a google search on GSMO circuit board.

... a Culver City repair poutfit has developed a new board that goes in place of a bad circuit board. ...

This is likely Optical-Electro House. They are on occasion buying our TXM-14 and TXM-17 circuit boards (as originally made for some of our now discontinued models of crystal motor) for some mysterious applications.
