It's in a flashback scene from Corner Gas season 5, episode 1, "Cable Excess". Fast-forward to 4:15.

I don't know, but here's a screenshot to encourage responses... it looks like one of the many Sonys that used to come through the shop.

Super, thanks. I assume there are not that many different non-remote, varactor-tuned Trinitrons in that size. Hopefully that will narrow it down significantly.

Looks similar to a KV-1913

It's very close to this 1981 model but with a different grille, unfortunately they don't give the model number. It's on Pinterest so even the year is suspect, I assume they got it off the rear label?

Edit: this is Probably a KV-1913 like Inx64 posted above.

About 10-15 years ago a gardening and X-mas tree place in the Chicago suburbs had one of those outside for employee entertainment....How water did not kill it I can't say.

KV-1914 maybe? I read they share a chassis, saw a photo of a schematic for both, but for the life of me I can't find a photo of a KV-1914.

It's a KV-1932

Thanks! How did you find out? I can't find info on that model anywhere.

I have the exact TV. It was never used (part of an emergency ops center, the cord was still strapped and bagged). Had to recap the entire set.

Wow that's awesome. That set was well worth a recap. So much for what I read about electrolytics only failing from a lot of use. The fellow who gave me my KV-1921 said it hadn't been used in about 20 years. It's in fantastic shape and the CRT seems strong - I haven't pulled the back for a test - but it does have issues.

for lytics dis-use is often much worse than heavy use.

Now I'm curious, after watching Poltergeist, what Trinitron is this?

I looked it up one time but can't remember. I saw one for sale on CL or eBay not too long ago.

Okay, looks like a KV-2645RS, found the one on eBay but unless it's the actual set from the movie then the seller must be high.
Set is plugged in but not one picture of it on.

Well this is suspicious, same set, different state.

I'd say go with the movie set price, but I have reasons to say that price is even to high. Too much without proof of it working that's for sure.

And now my post is showing here, a potential TV scam ring in action. :P

The second one is a KV-2643R. I think they had a KV-9400 in the kitchen. I haven't seen the movie but naturally I researched the TVs. :thmbsp:

I missed the part where the seller of the $79 set says he used someone elses picture because his set is packed up.

Says the fuse blows, bad HO transistor or flyback? I'd still buy the non working set for $600 less and hope it was fixable.

Great movie, I saw it a couple times in the theater back in 82.

As I recall Steven Spielberg didn't want to cast Heather O'Rourke because she was so young but she got the part because she did such a bang-up job acting terrified. Who knows if the movie would have been such a success without her.

As for the KV-2645RS, I think Walter Matthau uses one as his main set in Grumpy Old Men. I noticed a roundie as well while he was on his way to the Sony.
