  1. My uncle had this set, he rented it from Peter Shee Rentals in Reading, this was his 2nd colour set. He had it right up to 1994 until the tube completely died.

    Very well made set.

  2. Hi, I have recently acquired this set, but I’m not sure I can really call it a set as there is only the cabinet and controls nothing else, not even the back panel. I was wondering if you knew where I could get some circuit boards and a CRT for the set and do you know what sets will have compatible parts. Please help me. One last thing, is this set worth rebuilding, id love to sell mine to you, to keep you busy and you give me yours….but I guess I’m just dreaming there. 🙂

    • Short answer? Quit whilst you’re ahead.

      I saw those empty cabinets on e-bay, such a shame they had been gutted. You’ve more chance of a whole set turning up on e-bay than trying to rebuild that one. To be honest you’re wasting your time and money,if you have zero TV electronic experience, ever more so.

      Still if you’re capable, prepared to spend more money than you anticipate or will ever hope to recoup, prepared to wait a fairly long time and scour e-bay, you may eventually turn up what you need.

      You need to look out for all the Philips G11 circuit boards, expect to pay anywhere up to £20 per board and you will need them all and there’s a lot of them. Then you need to find a G11 chassis to house them all which will need to include the wiring harness. Then there’s all the controls, CRT, degauss shield, scan coils etc. You’re looking at quite a considerable expenditure.

      Then the fun really begins with assembling it all, diagnosing the multitude of faults that will inevitably be present. If you don’t have the technical know how, you’re going to have to pay someone to do it for you, again more expense.

      So as you can see buying an empty cabinet and hoping for a quick easy TV was never going to be that simple. You could buy a flat screen LCD and stick it inside but its always going to look awful. You could of course turn it into a fish tank!

      Finally correct, you’re dreaming if you thought you could sell me yours and that I would give you mine, a complete set for an empty case? I think that would be a lose lose for me and a win win for you.

  3. Have you got the remote? Could you put up a picture of it?

    I am trying to remember how the volume, brightness, colour and contrast controls worked. Are they just on the remote? And is that the contrast control on the back?

    We had this TV for the whole of the 80s. Rented for 5 years then bought it. The only niggle was the colours diverging, then near the end the bottom of the picture curled up.

  4. Hi Stuart,

    No remote I’m afraid it was missing when I acquired the set. Good thing is unlike TV’s today all the user control are on the TV anyway.

    To adjust the brightness, volume and colour you push on the Philips logo at the bottom and a draw pops out. Likewise to change channel tuning you push the top channel change panel and that pops out to reveal the individual channel tuning thumb wheels.

    Finally, yes the control on the back is the contrast.

  5. a leaky beam current limiter transistor would always prevent the power supply staring up. happy days fault finding on the G11.
