The G11 Project


The G11 was launched in the UK in 1977 to replace the long served G8, here is a scan of a Philips sales manual covering all aspects of the design, development and release of the new chassis.

The Philips G11 was designed and manufactured in Britain, it anticipated high standards of quality, performance, reliability and serviceability. It incorporated the latest generation of colour picture tube techniques, the 20AX in-line system, every model met the exacting requirements of safety at the time BS415.

I remember the Philips G11 and in my opinion it was a very poor television set compared to the Philips G8. To many faults to mention, not a great TV.

The power supply still had that annoying rattle when it was working . I suppose the inline tube was an improvement though. The frame chip failure rate due to that smoothing can fault was annoying and the wonky AFC switch on the tuning tray. I thought the picture was better than a G8 myself because the tube was prealigned and seldom needed any after manufacture adjustment .

The G11’s I saw at the time in General gave a good picture. However, a good few of these sets I remember , the Pictures ballooned briefly every time there was a change of seen.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
