It might be easier to find a manual for the Luxor branded model.

I too had a 26" Skantic, the one with a sealed bass loudspeaker and soft dome tweeter all in a white cabinet with a ideal colour button. An excellent receiver in every way.

It just so happens that the service manuals you need were sold on ebay this month.

The seller, calling himself scaniacon, is still advertising and this means that you could try contacting him and asking for the buyers details. With any luck you could well be on the way to getting what your after.

I do remember that the circuit was very much standard practise for European designed TV's and without knowing what is wrong, a little research of the manufacturers typical IC circuits might be useful.

Best of luck

Chris

Hi Chris,

Tried looking at eBay.de but didn't come up with anything. What search terms did you use?

Thanks for your input.

Cheers,
John Joe.

Hi John

For ebay.de use the search "Luxor Service Manuals."

There are several models shown including pictures of the cabinet presentation.

I have also just read a thread from BVWS member "GEC2110" who back in 2009, had the service manual for a number of models. If you type Skantic 79 in the "search this website" on this site, you will then find his post which will take you to his contact details by clicking on his user name.

Last but not least. Search "Luxor TV" also and member "Michael Morris" appears to also have equivalent chassis details which could be helpful if the ebay.de model numbers don't match your TV.
