Default Barco CRM 2631 Colour TV Monitor

Hello, I have just acquired this set (well almost, I have to collect it).

Its unknown if the set works or not. Its a complex beast 26" with multistandard capability and Video input and output options.

Never seen these so not familiar with it. Not been able to find anything about it let alone a service manual. Anybody have experience with these? think it dates from about 1978. I have attached some pictures.

Many Thanks

Paul

Type in Barco into the "search the website" at the top and you will find some interesting information on Barco and other multi-standard receivers, The general impression is that the service manual, if needed, is as rare as hen's teeth.

I had some of these with the 510X CRT from curbside.
Now only the 4 standard versions from the mid-50s.

However I have a lot of schematics from Barco/Cobar (See: Co-Bar / Bar-Co - don't know why they did that)
If anybody needs something....

Regards,
German Dalek

I remember these well. I worked for a Barco agent for many years. Also Barco projectors. All a very long while ago. Quite reliable, many versions and standards were available. Very popular for medical use, where we sold large quantities.
I once built a 26" one into an old Dynatron cabinet, and used an external tuner.

I was the only person in our workshop that would repair the SMPS power supplies, most of the other engineers were afraid of anything much above 12 volts!
A set of extension boards can be useful when working on these models.
