Default Bush TV 230 DS

I picked this up a couple of weeks ago along with another set. I decided today to remove the chassis and treat the cabinet for woodworm using protim (the good stuff) as there was some fresh fras inside the cabinet.

It's quite a ruf set and the tube reads very poor, although hard to say until we see a picture on it. If it does need a tickle I hope it responds as well as tube in the GEC at Mikey's did.

Cheers for now
John Joe.

Interesting set, presumably made in Dublin for the Irish market?

Looks like it is based on the UK Bush 23 model TV148, with a valve VHF tuner and a valved IF/video/sync/audio panel..?

Hi Daz, yes I believe it is the same set. Cracking day here so had it out in the sun drying off. Have it back together now, it will be a while before I get around to it, few more in the queue ahead of it.

Cheers, John Joe.

I recently "went through" my Bush TV161 that's been on the to do pile for ages. When I saw the back cover of yours, I thought that it was a version of that but reading the comments above, I see different!

That extra knob at the very bottom of the control panel looks interesting.....

Hi Lads,

That extra knob is a tone control, very luxurious...
