Sanyo built it & they usually used Sylvania CRT's.
Actually a quite good set IMHO. No major problems I
can remember. If it uses IC sockets they did give some
trouble but its a 1 mn fix.

Without a source you should get nice brite & sharp B&W
snow & its probably OK. Also if you have a VCR bring it along
& try it.

Its a nice clean set. $50 is fair if you like it & the CRT is strong
but always remember the true value is negative $$ ! Just
of value to a few collectors & gamers.
