Anyone collect vintage CRT portable TV's ?
I started to collect vintage portable color tv's.
I usually get them for free, rescue from garbage or pay very little for them.
Here's a few that I got recently:

1978 Eaton Viking 10" Portable 8761-10C Color CRT

Image


1987 Hitachi CT-1367 Portable Color TV

Image

1988 Sony Trinitron KV-1326r

I have one of the original Black and White, 12 channel only [no UHF] Sony portables which I bought in Japan in 1963. Complete with fitted luggage type carrying case, leather battery case [and both lead acid batteries] with charger and the original cardboard shipping boxes. Call me a pack rat. I didn't think to pick up the in window auto antenna otherwise I would show this in my 1967 Datsun at car shows.

Picked up a couple more since last post:

1978 Sears (Sanyo) Model 14062 Color Portable TV

This set was used in the 1997 Titanic movie.
It's the same model Old Rose is watching at the beginning of the 1997 Movie

Portable would be a bit of a stretch, but I have this Mitsubishi 20" CRT with fancy woodgrain trim and remote control. Weighs an absolute ton.

Image

I can't find a build date on it, but I'd say early 1980s. Was given to me for free by someone leaving the country, I didn't really need it but I couldn't stand to see it be wasted. Story of my life.

I've also got a Hitachi K50-E like this, I bought it in a junk shop in the early 90s and I still have it somewhere.

Image

Took it camping, takes 10 D-Cell batteries I seem to recall. Felt pretty smug being able to watch all the Saturday morning cartoons.

After 2 weeks of waiting the Kawasaki KS-23 Power cord arrived.
Plugged the TV in and it fired right up !
The vertical hold was messed up, so i adjusted that along with contrast and brightness.
I waited 30 minutes to adjust them.

Anyways, I made a little video of the set.

cheers. :)

Works like new. Black and white, Made in Japan.
Good cosmetic shape. Anyone know the model year ?
Cant find any info on the net.

The plexiglass cover makes it look not unlike a microwave oven. Cool.

I don't remember the plexi cover, but the rest of it looks so familiar. I probably watched something like that when I was a kid.

Heres some recent pickups:

Managed to grab this FREE 1976 Toshiba Blackstripe 13" Color TV off someone getting rid of it on craigslist.
I called 2 times, no answer. Called a 3rd time and got a hold of the person.
They said they were going to throw it away for recycling or give it to Goodwill,
but then listed it on craigslist to see if someone wanted it.
Anyways, I went to go see it and to my amazement, the thing is near mint !
It looks like it was hardly used ! The picture on it is still great too !
Here's a few pics 8)

Why do people throw these vintage sets out when they still work ! :?
Their loss, my gain :)
Anyways, heres some pics.
I think it is from 1972
It is Made in Japan.

Picked up this vintage 1983 Magnasonic model MBT 200 B&W TV at an estate sale today for a measily $2. Works and looks like new. Not even 1 scratch on cabinet !
Doesnt seem like it was used much. It is a very clean set.
Made in Korea.
The cabinet has a yellow tinge to it with marbleized swirls in it.
I cant find any info on it.

Picked up this Panasonic TR-201C B&W TV at an estate sale last month.
Works perfect and the case is in near mint condition too.
Afrer a quick polish and clean, looks like new ! :yes:
It's made in Korea.
I'm surprised back then Panasonic made TV's in Korea.
I guess to save cost, the black and whites were made there ?

Picked up this Rare Sharp 2U-121C Black and White Vacuum Tube TV for free, untested. Gave it a cleaning, polishing. It is in real nice condition, no cracks or faults on the case.Turned it on waited 45 seconds and it works. I believe this was made in 1971-72 ?? Made in Japan.
I peeked inside and noticed it is a tube hybrid set ?

Some pics and video

With all these Canadian postings saying that these veterans still work, am I to guess that the old NTSC broadcasts still exist in Canada? Are the newer digital formats there either as parallel channels or are you using converters to test the performance? Just curious.
