RE: Stella ST1011U line output transformer substitution.

You've worked wonders with this set Till! Super bright image, rock solid line hold and that piercing line whistle is one of the loudest I've encountered, just when I thought I could no longer hear it...

RE: Pre-war Pye TV/radio mirror lid in Newbury

RE: Philips 21TG100U Line timbase fault.

Can't say I've ever seen a 19 inch set quite like that? I thought they were usually later dual standard types. Worth a try but depends which set you would rather save (first) I suppose. Why did yo...

RE: Philips 21TG100U Line timbase fault.

Yes of course, if you are willing to do that. Maybe the width issue will be less of a problem in a 21 inch set? Just a thought, otherwise I am sure you might well think of a way around it. By the s...

RE: Philips 21TG100U Line timbase fault.

Hello Till, Thanks for having a look at this, as you know it happened on my watch so I feel party responsible. Whilst I did not employ your warm up method, the set was powered up carefully over a t...

RE: 1959 Stella ST1007U

Making good progress "Till"! Just a couple of points. You say the sound is nothing special, doesn't this set actually have two speakers in the set up? I thought it might be a bit better therefore. ...

RE: Dynatron TV27 "Fulmer"

Well it's super, been on for a couple of hours the last couple of nights. Yes the flyback lines have been a problem in the past, even with its original transformer, but I now find I can get rid of th...

RE: Dynatron TV27 "Fulmer"

Thankfully doesn't sound too serious if that is all it is, let's hope it's not going to be too difficult, there are other sets in the pipeline as you know 🙂 This set appears a little jinxed, after a...

RE: Dynatron TV27 "Fulmer"

Thanks for the info both of you. That is what I wanted to know, I had a feeling that it was Channel 5 but thought that only came in later in the days of ITV and the turret tuner. When I first got th...

RE: Dynatron TV27 "Fulmer"

@nuvistor Thanks, I think he may have had the set at Low Fell Gateshead for the first year or two, as I understand it we got our own transmitter from May 1953 but this set probably predates that. Cl...

RE: Dynatron TV27 "Fulmer"

Thanks, "Till", am sure many might have just abandoned it, but so much work has gone into it that wouldn't seem right. It's also the first 405 line set that started my collection so it's symbolic to ...

A friend has made this suggestion. Instead of opening up the whole thing, use a Dremel type tool and cut a slot into the heater pins and remake these connections only. Assuming that's where the pro...

Had forgotten quite what a long and involved topic this was! Well at least now we know what was causing the "flickering" which seemed evident almost as soon as I got the set home. None of us assumed...

RE: Ekco TMB for sale

Bit off topic but I would also like to know how to display the location on ones profile, if I am not mistaken it only gives you the option of "country" to display.
