I picked up this set as a freebee, at the Illinois Antique Radio Club, swapmeet a few months ago. The set is a very low hours, super clean set that has a great picture.
The only issue with it, is when playing a video tape, it flagwaves like mad!
A set built that late should play a video tape with no problem.
I wonder if there's information around about changing the horizontal AFC time-constant.
I appears that the set is all original and never needed repairing. :scratch2:

Yes that should run fine on a VCR. Look for small lytics
in hoz AFC & osc. Also check the power supply. About this
time they had a few european chassii in 13". Only
ever had PS problems for dead set....

The set is modular with the main board that swings down like the older T995,etc. The modules face the CRT. The set seems to have a lot of European parts, but does look like USA built. Standard Coil tuner, etc.
It must've been built when Philips just took over.
I tried it using a DVD and it works fine. I'll put it aside for now, as I have too many projects going. :scratch2:
