This was the second TV collected on today's TV collection caper and was a spur of the moment purchase.

Some might argue isn't it a bit late for my collection, well not really as the Ferguson 51A2 & Ferguson 20E2 are both 1986 so this Sanyo is within the 20-year period the collection covers, that being 1967–1987. More importantly, it is Teletext and still has its remote.

It smells a bit mouldy and upon opening up you can see why..... Yikes! Thankfully, I have the operating instructions which also have a few pages showing board views and a schematic, back in the day when manufacturers included such info. I had a hunt later for the full service manual, and I did find it on my Sanyo service manual CDs. I also found online the Sanyo training manual for the 80P chassis. Other than that, I've nothing much to add as the TV is unbeknown to me.

Some pics.

p.s.

Just one more TV reveal to do the sixth and final addition to the collection, this one goes all the way back to 1970.

I remember these sets. Very reliable, but the focus control was always at the end of the track.

Oh, my! That fur coat is thicker than the one my Nan used to wear!

I'd gut that set and leave the cabinet out in the sun for a few days, and then try and brush it out, don't ruin your hoover with it! Then paint it with some anti-fungal stuff, someone told me that neat IPA is good for killing mould, not tried it myself yet, but I can say for sure that Cillit Bang mould remover doesn't kill it, as it keeps coming back in my bedroom!

Nice looking set otherwise!

I saw a few of these I think (and I'm prepared to be shot down here) that they were made in the UK?  As Malc says, very reliable I can't remember any faults so any repairs I did must have been simple and one offs.

As Lloyd says that mould is nasty I wouldn't want to get near that!  Good old Ammonia foam cleaner should do the trick I would wear a mask, do it outside and be upwind of it. I wonder what caused it? something in the chipboard ? Normally mould is patchy not everywhere! 

When I worked at the garage we would occasionally get a car in that had been stood unused for a while. The parts that went mouldy were always where the persons inside had touched it. Steering wheel, seat belts, controls, On one occasion there was a little forest growing on the back seat between where two child seats had been fitted. Along with a set of Mouldy fingerprints growing on the dash! It demonstrated to me that people on the whole are minging! 😀  ( to quote Jade Goody) 🤣

I seem to recall the Sanyo TV factory was the former Pye factory in Lowestoft?

Stunning sets. We had loads of these out on rent. They went out, only to come back 15+ years later worn out. Epically reliable.

We found the same with the 30AX Mitsubushi it was a bulky thing for 22" with a solidly built chipboard cabinet covered in wood effect plastic. Touch tune that never went wrong. (are you listening GEC and Thorn!) About the only fault I can remember was dry joints on the line driver transformer, they ran until the tube wore out mostly without a fault.

Hi Michael,

Thanks for looking and the offer of data, luckily Sanyo service manuals I'm not short of (see photo). I've service data discs from a Sanyo dealer going back years, I'd no idea why I kept this until now.

I've also got a whole suite of service data CD's from Hitachi, Panasonic, AIWA, JVC & Toshiba, not that I see me ever getting into that era of TVs

Nice to see, I'm a bit late to the party thanks to a house move keeping me offline for 2 weeks!

I'll look forwards to the repair blogs of your new additions to your collection.
