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 my 1978 Eaton Viking 10" Portable 8761-10C Television a few days ago from the original owner, for FREE !
It is a thing a beauty ! It also comes with original manuals.
I think it is a very rare TV because it was sold by a Canadian Company Eaton's.
It is made in Japan as well.

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.

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.

Here's my 1969 Sony Trinitron model KV-1210U CRT TV. It was one of Sony's first ever Trinitron sets they made. I found this in my local Kijiji Toronto classifieds for $30.00 February 2014. It still works and looks like new ! The picture quality is simply amazing !
Made in Japan.
MSRP was $319.95 in 1969

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.

Here's one of my favorite vintage small TV sets.
Managed to grab this FREE 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 !
It was manufactured in Japan May 1976.

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 ?

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.
