Insanity grows by one. New tv.

Post by Bill Cahill on Fri Apr 30, 2010 10:57 am

Haven't had any time to take pictures yet, or, get model number, but, here we go, again!

I just spent ten dollars on this gem at a fellow collectors' house nearby....

Brand, RCA Victor
Type set. Television
Format. Portable
Size screen. 18"
Year made. 1972
Picture. BW
This is an all channel television in a wood grained plastic case. It is fully original, and, except for dirt, is in excellent condition.
All complete.
He had it playing several years back. Picutre tube is bright, and, sharp.
Has vertical issues, and, hum in sound.
This is a tube portable, Not solid state.
May be hybrid, but, not sure until I take it apart..
I will need help getting a schematic for this gem.
I suspect bad filters. Also, he said, height, and, lin. controls act like a hold control.
Vert. hold control is affecting the height.
Any ideas what's going on here?
Well, the insanity continues......
It even has all the original antennas!
UHF tuner is NOT click....
Am I crazy????

Hey Bill. You haven't seen total insanity yet. Some of the stuff I pick up, I shouldn't. I have an RCA simular to that one. Has a 1975 build date on the back. Made in Tiawan. It's a hybrid, as it has a transistor in the 2nd IF but seems to be all tube. P.S> It's free for anyone that pays the shipping.

Where are you? What size of screen is it? Does it play? Any pictures? I'm interested.

Thanks. Again. Forum wouldn't send the first message. ARRGGHH!!
It may take awhile on shipping. I'm caring for a sick dog.
Need to know costs, and, it would really have to be packed well to survive United Smashers.

Hi Bill. Don't worry about it. When the time is right I'll get a buddy to pack it. He's an expert at it. Sends out a lot of super expensive stuff. Hope your dog gets well soon. Regards, Dave.
