I am selling a defiant tv. (On eBay just now). Is there a set of steps that I can take in order to see it work?

Without knowing anymore than the above, I would say MOST CERTAINLY NOT !

Considerable damage can be caused if a set unused for many years is simply plugged in. Many checks need to be made by persons familiar with vintage items long before the application of mains supply.

Best to sell it as "Untested, requiring restoration". Photo's of the interior with the back removed are useful if possible.

To understand the black art of electronics is to understand witchcraft. Andrew.

Thank you Andrew and Frank. Massively appreciate the advice. I am far more comfortable with newer electronics, I will act as guided. I have enjoyed learning about the set, it was clearly a vibrant time for British electronics/ electricals manufacturing.
