Hi. Alex, what you have there if it's identical to the 3547 is a TX250 chassis which was not released in the UK. Until your earlier posts I wasn't even aware of it's existence, the nearest we had to it in the UK was the 1540 but I can see a lot of differences. If your fault is in the line output or field osc/output stages then the 1500 diagram may be of some help although the component reference numbers will be different. Lots of close up pictures will of help us to identify them.

Good luck.

John.

Interesting to see a Ferguson export model.

I presume it was for countries using system B/G, was there a similar design for use in Ireland?

I think Ireland would have been supplied with the 1400 chassis. It had a surprisingly long production run, possibly for that very reason but I don't know for sure.

Thorn designers have made a good job by giving the set a Scandinavian look to the cabinet presentation. The rosewood effect looks good. It would be interesting to know the maker of the multi-band tuner. Made by Telefunken? It's well known that the Thorn Electrical Industries made for export many variants of other TV receivers. For example there was a 625 only version of the 900 series.  The Philco PT5514 for example:   https://www.radiomuseum.org/r/philco_pt5514.html

The UKVRRR topic about the set: https://www.vintage-radio.net/forum/showthread.php?t=111828

A version of the 1500 chassis was made in Australia. A topic about such sets exists in this forum.

The set reminds me a little of a Korting Transmare.

Certainly looks like the same type of tuner.

And of course around that time Thorn imported Korting sets, releasing them via Radio Rentals as the Baird 8750

Yes I know. Alex's set reminds me of one, certainly the tuner anyway.

Another very good looking set Alex, a long way better than the cabinets on Ferguson UK monochrome models and I like the black rear cover also. If that set had been available here it would probably been given an HMV badge.
