Default Philips X19T 611/00

Hi everyone
i bought 4 philips TV's that belonged to a local repair guy who passed away
i gave 25€ for each

this is the first one i repaired from the four
its a philips X19T 611/00
its mostly tubes but it also has a few appears to be mid to late 60's
when first arrived the tuner was frozen and i had to disassemble it and heat the parts with a hair-dryer to get them loose and re-lubricate all of them
the boost capacitor was shorted and the booster diode or damper tube like some call it was redplating so it had no raster because it loads down the flyback and kills the high voltage
after replacing that capacitor the High voltage rectifier started glowing purple, probably open filament and it causes it to emmit x-rays so i replaced it
now its working very well
i have a video on the tuner repair

i dont have and cannot find a schematic for this set
if anybody has any info it would be fantastic

here it is working on all original capacitors and resistors

hi to all
really it has a very nice picture, the crt must be in excellent condition because i have the brightness set to less than 3/4 of the knob
next weekend i will be digging into the other sets and will upload some repair footage also instead of just showing the results.
