Digital Spectrum Digital Frames
GREAT NEWS FOR OWNERS OF DIGITAL SPECTRUM FRAMES!
If you have been frustrated by the lack of support from Digital Spectrum for your Digital Spectrum digital frame (ex., MF 801, MF 1040, MV 1500, etc.), HELP is now available!
Since there is no longer a person available to answer calls for Digital Spectrum, the head of sales and business development for Vodality (a digital sign company with digital frame roots) is willing to answer questions and provide support for Digital Spectrum digital frame owners!
Email your concerns to firstname.lastname@example.org and please leave a phone number where you can be reached for a return call.
If the frame is under warranty (one year), it can be repaired at no charge and returned to you but you will have to pay the shipping charges to get it there.
If the frame is out of warranty, you will receive a repair quote and you will be responsible for the shipping charges both ways. In most cases, this will probably be less expensive solution than buying a new frame.
Additionally, parts for many of the frames, such as adapters, remotes, and stands are still available on line at the DSI Store.
I would appreciate your feedback about this service, which should prove very helpful to many of the visitors to my site.
UPDATE: Digital Spectrum - The Phaseout of Consumer Digital Frames
Digital Spectrum has discontinued manufacturing digital frames for consumers. The company's main focus now is the expansion of its Commercial Digital Signage division. Personal digital frames that are still in inventory will be available for sale on the company's website until they are gone.
This has implications for those who already have Digital Spectrum consumer digital frames or those who were planning to buy them in the future. It will become more and more difficult to find the frames, parts and accessories, though it will be a very long time before Amazon or eBay also run out.
Tech support may not be available. NOTE: PLEASE SEE ABOVE FOR SUPPORT! You can always contact me, however, if you have a technical problem with a Digital Spectrum frame. I will do my best to come up with a viable solution for you.
Digital Spectrum Solutions, Inc., located in Irvine, California, had been manufacturing digital frames since 2001. Please see above for more current info.
Available in 8", 10", 12", 15" and 17" sizes, the digital frames are manufactured under the brand names of MemoryFrame (MF), MemoryVue (MV), NuTouch (NT) and NuVue (NV).
The frames range from simple digital picture frames that just display photos to multi-media frames that add audio and video capabilities to wireless and web-enabled frames. Also included are a number of digital frames with digital signage software to be used specifically for digital signage solutions in commercial retail and industrial settings.
Memory Frame (MF) - Ultra Thin Digital Spectrum Digital Frames:
TheMF-801(8.4"), MF-1041(10.4") and the MF-1201(12.4") are included in the Ultra-Thin frame type and all have interchangeable magnetic faceplates and wood frames.
