Philips Radio

Post by Ben Delk on Thu Apr 25, 2013 12:58 pm

Anyone have any info or knowledge of radios biult in Holland. My brother-in-law picked up a Philips radio in the middle 60's when he was in the Air Force. He is interested in having it repair. It will power up but nothing from there. I open it up and closed it right back. Way to too much stuff in it for my learning curve to adjust to. I'm not sure of the exact model but it is very close to the b3a23a.

I would first find and study the schematic for it, then decide whether it is something you would want to grapple with. At least it looks like it has some decent construction to it. a lot of European radios look a bit worse inside than their exteriors would indicate.

Antique radio museum had a schematic but I am willing to admit my lack of experience and yield to someone willing to tackle the job since he willigtp pay.

That's a wise move. It's easier to get into European sets in hobby mode than commission mode. There are a few differences, but they aren't impossible.

I think that set was sold under the Norelco brand for sale in the U.S. Yes the same company that had electric razors or North American Phillips.

I'd do it but 12000 miles is a little far for you to drop off and pick up!

Try this first; (I assume the radio is dead silent at this point?) After measuring the speaker voice coil, measure the primary of the output transformer....these often go open circuit in some of the Euro radios.

If it is open, you can sub in a standard 5000/3 ohm output transformer for the EL84 (6BQ5) output tube.

Don't forget to replace the 50uF filter caps first of all.

If the radio talks to you after the above, the usual recap and replacement of out of spec resistors needs to be done.

WARNING!!!! Do NOT break the dial cord!! Some of these radios have a dial cord arrangement that if restringing is required, can cause premature senility.

You should see the dial cord stringing in that sucker!!
