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.

Read on to gain an insight into the G11.

  1. 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.

  2. Wow an awesome read with tons of information regarding the G11. I really enjoyed reading all this. To me Chris, this must be the most informative information regarding this chassis, well done that man! for posting this!

  3. The early G11 was poor they improved later on. Why did Philips make mistakes with the early sets? The model 660 with its on/off control panel which usually ended up inside the cabinet, the frame TDA2600 holder, the infamous smoothing cap. The first push button channel selection. All these things should have been addressed before and perhaps the reputation of early sets could have been better.

    The Philips model 661 and the Pye versions were an improvement. Having said that they were easy to work on and innovative at the time mid 70’s. The picture quality was very good with the 20 AX tube in all versions.
