Dave, hours on the parts = wear on the parts, especially the tubes and the convergence circuit, as for preventive maintenance that you can provide I`d say the only thing you should do is blow out the dust once or twice a year with an air compressor or a couple of cans of compressed air. I see 50 sets a year (all broken of course) with a half inch of junk sitting on top of all the parts which severely overheats everything, good for me but bad for the customers wallet if you get my meaning, video-tek

You might want to read up on some of this:
http://www.consumeraffairs.com/retail/sharper_image.html

If you are inquiring about product warranties on former Shaper Image products, purchased prior to October 2009, we unfortunately cannot help you. On February 19, 2008, The Sharper Image Corporated (“TSIC”) operating under previous ownership and management, filed for bankruptcy in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware. Since that filing, a new group of investors acquired certain assets of TSIC including the brand name and the SharperImage.com website. We understand your frustrations and recommend visiting http://www.kccllc.net/sharperimage for more information, or call 1-877-312-7060. For orders placed through ShaperImage.com after October 2009 please refer to the manufacturer instructions on the warranty card provided with your purchased product.
Retail Store Purchases
Unfortunately, if you have questions about a Sharper Image product that was purchased from a retail store, we cannot help you. SharperImage.com can only assist with purchases made through the SharperImage.com website. For questions, or possible returns you have, please go back to the store where you made the purchase. For a list of retail stores carrying Sharper Image products, please click here. You will need to contact the individual retail stores to find out the specific products they carry.
For additional information regarding retail store purchases, please call 1-877-312-7060.
Replacement Parts
If you are inquiring about replacement parts for former Sharper Image products, purchased prior to October 2009, we unfortunately cannot help you. SharperImage.com is a new business venture that started in October 2009 and has no affiliation to The Sharper Image Corporated (“TSIC”) that filed for bankruptcy in 2008. Information regarding the TSIC bankruptcy case can be found at http://www.kccllc.net/sharperimage. If you have a warranty from the former Sharper Image, please find more information here, or call 1-877-312-7060.
SharperImage.com does not provide replacement part service at this time. We are not the product manufacturer and therefore do not have access to replacement parts. However, if your product is not working properly, or arrived defective, you can request a return within 60 days of purchasing by e-mailing our customer service department at customerservice@sharperimageonline.com. After the 60 days expires, you must refer to the manufacturer instructions on the warranty card.

Carbon monoxide detector err code


Detecotrs have a limited lifespan of 5-7 years. So sounds like you need new one (It's not worth to buy just a sensor). Take a look on amazon: Amazon com Carbon monoxide detector (watch out on reviews). I hope this was helpful. cheers
