An odd set, aimed at the second set market, the logo on the front of
the set reading "Personal FERGUSON".
|SERVICE DATA||There is a copy of the "Trader" service sheets 1671 & 1673 for the Thorn 900 serise on the Vintage Television Service Data CDROM.|
|CURRENT STATE||Basically sound, though very dirty and missing some of the front controls. Some of the gold trim is loose ... exactly like the photo in the book Historic Televisions and Video Recorders. Although very dusty, the chassis looks like it had an easy life, so if some control knobs can be found this ought to make a very nice little set.|
|WHERE FOUND||From that antique shop I've knicknamed Watery Skip, since this is where
a lot of stuff tends to end up. Cost me £15 to rescue it.
Recently sold to "Phil" who was after one.
Note the optional flywheel synch PCB just right of center.
Follow this link for closeup of layout diagram [105K].
Although neatly tucked away, there are a lot of wires
flying about. Nice of them to colour code them though !
