My new CTC-28!

This is one of the cleanest, most pristine tube televisions that I've seen. It was bought September 15th of last year by a friend and fellow collector, and I have been after it since I first saw it seven months ago. The cabinet is flawless. Whoever owned this TV took extraordinarily good care of it. It's 100% original save for a couple of tubes. I'm going to do a cataract surgery on the 25XP22 as soon as possible, but it's supposed to rain every day this week, so I may be doing it in the house.

I did a cataract surgery on the tube this morning before the rain started, and now it looks 100% showroom perfect.

I have a CTC28 too, it was my parents' set, the "Tonsberg". The CRT is weak but I have a new Channel Master CRT for it. That too has a cataract issue too. Still in queue.

The only thing thing I have to do on this set is replace the convergence rectifier. Convergence is atrocious at the moment. Amazing colors though.

Sweet! Now I don't have to take a microwave full of 'iffy pop' to a supernova.

Nice set Dave. The last of the finest chassis series, gone after the two-board CTC38 appeared.

As a TV repair novice when those sweet-looking RCA's were 10 years old, I was consulted by a few owners of these beauties as a "second opinion". I always left humbled as flybacks cost almost what rebuilt CRT's did.

After the first few, I could smell roasting fly or see the 6JE6 red-plating like a freakin' rocket with -50v drive on pin 3 - cathode current 400 ma plus, you know the rest. Why change a fly until you know the CRT is any good.
