You glutton for punishment you
The ICC9 was not a very nice chassis whilst I repaired many and they kept me in a job at the time
Maybe you would like the Ferguson version of the IDC2 chassis to fit in with your undoubted masochism
The TX98 and ICC5 were ok though, the Sharp CS chassis was another 'marmite' set.

Edit: Sony was just shall we say Sony, if you like the BE3D you might like the way the AE 5 onwards LOPT stage worked

I had a D59F years ago and it had an intermittant retrace line problem, being 15 and not having a working knowledge of them then i scrapped it but it was a great tv when it was in a good mood.

Never seen an IDC2 set, would be intrested to though.

Ive heard horror stories of the CS chassis, the CA10 in my sets seems to be far more reliable, the 05H i have has had to flyback replacments other than that they seem to be decent ive never experianced any other issues with mine.

The Sony was a TV my nanny had and id want one purely for the nostalgia, I hated it at the time because it replaced the perfectly working Ferguson E51R8 before it. I grew to love it though and eventually it was given to a family friend and a few years later i heard it "blew up"

Ive heard many many horror stories of the ICC5 sets, id prefare to find a 51P7 with the TX98 as that was the first set my nanny had from when i was born till i was 4 and she bought the E51R8. The 51P7 went into storage to be fixed (just shut down one day and wouldnt come back on) it never got fixed after a few years and got scrapped.

There must still be a few of them knocking about, just have to keep looking

A few Bush just to keep the TV12/22 lads happy, and a couple of DAC90A's. J.

My most recent purchase (unboxed today): a Bush TV22 Mk X?...
It's in great condition (with a nice layer of dust), and I see no signs of previous repairs / restoration.
The main chassis S/N is 124/06297 (so Mk 2).
The RF chassis is numbered A22/22715 (so, again, Mk2).
However, the RF chassis is populated with EF91 miniature valves (see attached photos). As far as I know, Mk2's are supposed to have EF80s only. The date on the 50 uF cap on the RF deck is May 52.
As anyone come across something like this?
Helder

I have now made a second album of the rest of the sets in my collection. the 19" Marconi was my parents first colour set that they bought. Previously we had a Decca 2230 which was rented from Granada for a year. I was probably around 12 when that set was new. The Marconi did sterling service until it was replaced when I started work. It then became a second set and was eventually stored for years. It is now back in use in my dining room.
The Set at the side of it is my treasured Invicta 7070U which I have owned since I was 11 or 12. I watched all my favourite programmes in my bedroom
Monty Python , Barretta, and of course because it was UHF I could get the Old grey whistle test on BBC2.

This thread certainly has brought out some fantastic collections! My thanks to all that have taken the trouble to post pictures.


It is really nice to see some of the old stagers it is also good to see some of the more modern sets being preserved for the future.
I am surprised not to see some of the Sinclair sets that seemed to be popular (despite the price) back in the day?

You just need to reposition the contacts with a bit of foil, otherwise identical.

I've heard of TV80 owners using the batteries from Polaroid film packs once the official Sinclair ones started to get rare.

I have only a few sets. They are:

A Panasonic 28-inch widescreen CRT set. This has never given a moment's trouble during the 14 years I've had it.

A 1960 Philips 17TG100-U. Now on its third LOPT. Gives a splendid 405-line picture.

A c.1970 Sony 9-90UB. Originally assembled as a 'cut 'n shut' job from the best bits of two sets obtained from a well-known auction site.

A 'Bude' console. A Baird Townsman cabinet with Bush TV24 insides and various other bits & bobs (see pic).

An Argus, constructed in 1990 (see pic). Currently configured to run between 120 and 240 lines.

Two Retrovisors: an 'Imperial' from 1993 and a 'Festival' (see pic) from 1995 - the last one made.

Mechanical televisors: one 30-line, one 120-line. Both colour.

Can't think of any more at the moment...

Here's a few of mine in a set for a TV programme shown last year with the comedian Elis James who was supposed to be back in the Eighties - I think!
