1966 Sears Silvertone black and white. Has a popped capacitor in the horizontal deflection circuit, works but has a weak crt. Garage sale
Capehart 327 M Combo
RCA CTC 35a color tv. Great picture, came from an estate sale.Cathode 215ma. Sams 925. .033uf capacitor in the vertical circuit took 2 weeks to find. All the 'orange/red drop capacitors are drifting and not The Mylar prevents the cap from ever becoming leaky, but the paper can deteriorate so that the cap becomes lossey and does not have a well defined value. This the same with most of these late 60s sets. Set has packard bell flyback as a replacement.
Zenith tube 25 inch color console, 16z7c50z chassis. Had a burnt resistor when I adopted it from Denver CO
RCA CTC17 combo unit. Rescued this from the curb in Central LA. Worked but has some bad capacitors and a bad color crystal. 15 inch woofers.
Late 60s 17inch Zenith black and white. Had a shorted vertical output transformer that was not available, had to use a different style and change the vertical output circuit to adapt to the new part.
Another late 60 Zenith BW, had a bad vertical integrator that I had to make up out of different parts.
1968 Zenith 20x1c38 chassis color combo. This is a more modern version of the one above. Same tuner and turntable, different chassis. Needed lots of work, flyback, resistors, tubes, capacitors, diode.
This is the chassis out for service.
The underside of the hand wired chassis. Note the signatures on the if shield.
1972 GE H-3 chassis port a color. Had to have one.
1973 Zenith Sidekick Blue jeans Taiwan made black and white 4 tube hybrid. Works..
1964 RCA black and white stereo combo. Needed filter capacitors. Got it from a local listing.
1955 CBS black and white. Needed capacitors. Very strong crt. great picture. Replaced lots of capacitors. IF alignment helped with sound buzz and noise background in picture. Installed cathode current fuse and increased filament resistor with 40 ohm to cool filaments down a bit.

Good luck with the tv and have fun with it!
Let me know when you get it working again. I am glad it went to a good home! Thanks again.C
BTW, I bought that tv from the CHLA (Children's Hospital Los Angeles) Thrift Shop in 1990 and paid $25. for it then!
The tubes are now back in this set and its working. No sound though.
