Tim,

Thanks for finding and posting the original pictures that went with this thread. If I'm not mistaken, all of the AK thread pictures posted prior to a server change sometime back, were lost during the change over.

Many were. I can grab just about all of them from the first year from an old stored archive.

Here are some screen shots of the emerson. As you can see I have more work to do. The b + filters are on the way out and the crt needs a good alignment. The crt alignment went out when I moved it.
Thank you for the info on it. I was not sure what year it was made.
I have a dumont and the chassis looks the same as the emerson.
This is a good looking emerson and the wood around the bezel is awesome.

Fourteen years later, things have come full circle, and she's back at my house. I've grown in my skill sets by many orders of magnitude since I originally rescued her, and now I can continue with a full recap where Ed left off

Holy ancient thread Batman! I just got an email telling me it was updated. I think some of the members weren't born when this began.

Good on you Tim for saving it (again).

Cool set. That is the first Emerson branded roundy I've seen.

Old is right. I was a radio collector that did not really give a damn about anything computerized much less the internet back then.

I'm impressed your original picture uploads from 2003 have survived all these years. Long live photobucket!

I was in 8th Grade when this thread was made and didn't even know that anything like this existed on the internet, in fact my parents didn't even have internet back then, but we did have Juno Free Email Service, remember that? So yeah, I wonder if this thread could be considered one of the first threads ever posted on this forum...

Also just to let you know that when this thread was first posted I had already successfully repaired a 1963 Motorola TT22CW AM/FM/FM Stereo Tabletop radio that a friend of mine gave to me who had gotten the radio from its original owner who had it stored away in a closet in his house because the radio was having problems with reception or something like that.
I had also successfully repaired a 1985 vintage Montgomery Wards 13" B & W TV that the same person who gave me the old Motorola Radio had given me, who had gotten the TV from its original owner and when I got it it had an issue with the Vertical and Horizontal Hold being messed up so I readjusted them on the back and sure enough the TV worked again.

I used the B & W TV I fixed for a couple of years until I got my first Color TV which was a 1988 vintage Zenith 13" Color TV with the knob style tuners, and that thing I used up until about a year before the orginal Scheduled DTV Transition before it got postponed.
I used that Zenith with a CATV compatible VCR to watch cable TV on (my parents had Basic Comcast Cable Service for years back when they still had the all analog channels before they went Digital and required you to have a set top box for every TV in the house).
Interestingly enough I did these repairs on my own without the help of the internet...

I only wish all of the repairs I have to deal with these days were as simple as my first repairs were. Although I wouldn't of found you guys otherwise then...

I bet the old bag calls you back & offers you a box of tubes for
a C-note !
Anyhows an RCA clone so the only $$ tube is the H. out.
Looks like a fun project, keep us posted....

Zeno, this is an "antique" thread, the last time this thread was updated concerning any repairs done to the TV was back in 2006 and during that time Kamakiri didn't even own the TV because he let it go to a fellow member on here to finish the repairs, and the only reason why the thread was bumped up was because he was letting us know that the TV was back in his hands after being out of his hands for 14 years and that the TV is now working.

She's probably dead by now

I had to do some running around yesterday morning, so I went by the place. It's now a music store (it was a liquor store), and has an awning over top of the fire escape to look more like an entrance. They must have modified it because as I remember it was pointing towards the back then. But I remember those narrow stairs, and the whole thing shook with every step I took hauling that sucker out!

Those Emerson's were not not clones! They're genuine RCA built, even up to the tuner. That was the last chassis that RCA sold others. After that, they licensed the design of the same chassis for cloning.
