Well, if it's worth anything, I'm working on tv's.
Right now, replacing bad resistors in my beloved "family" RCA Victor 6T74 tv set.
Also, working on my 7" Motorola.

Tv's really aren't that hard. Familiarize yourself with how a tv works, the circuits, and, except for higher B+ in some spots, higher frequencies, and, much higher hv to run anode on pix. tube, it isn't much more than a glorified radio with a pix. tube.
Dangerous, yes. Need to take precautions. Yes.
But, alot of the service techniques are the same. Not all, mind you.
There are areas care must be taken.

I actually enjoy resurecting televisions more than radios.
Radios just play same old, same old.
TV's, well, you know..
And, phonos, lots of fun there.....
