Talking My Collection (as of today) and thank you! :-)

Hello, everyone,

I just wanted to share with you my portable transistor TV collection as of today (see attached pictures). Thanks to information and help in this forum, I was able to get many of these sets (some of which were totally dead on arrival) to work.

All the TVs in the top row are functional (except for the little Casio) -- this summer, I will rig them to turn on with the rest of them. The LCD, Watchman, and very small CRT collection also all work except for one of the Panasonics that has a lot of corrosion damage from battery leakage. I just didn't turn them on.

Thanks for all the help you guys have given me. I really enjoy my collection.

That looks fantastic. The shelves with their floating design are just perfect for your TVs. I love seeing an organized well laid out collection. You should be very proud!

Very nice collection. What is that set in the first image, third row from the top, second from the right, between the pink Sharp and the Sony KV 5200. It is all black and looks like a black and white set similar to the KV 4000.

Thanks for the kind compliments.

etype2, that is a KV 4000. It's sitting on its battery pack holder, which is black. It's just a bad cell-phone picture that makes it look strange.

Nice collection, well displayed, thanks for posting, gives me some ideas about displaying my tiny sets. (Many walkman sized sets are just in a file box)

Yes! It works, too. I took out the leaky rechargeable batteries and did a partial recap. A relatively dim but clear picture.

And yes, Electronics M, that is a Sony KV-9000U.

Thanks again, guys!

That KV-9000U is an appropriate upper size limit on that fine collection

Can you imagine how much money was spent on these items, originally?
Unfortunately, I'm not one for that great of organization.
