I have an old NEC N-4856 analogue colour TV.

Any of you TV guys know the year of manufacture? I've had it for many years but cannot recall when I bought it.

Yeah sounds like the one, I have a fewo f them in the garage ,Because the kids like those early 90s NECs for gaming ,They have a slight curve to the screen ,Most of mine are 63 or 68 cm They are pretty good but they all seem to get the same problem with a green shade to the screen.
Hey do you want to sell this TV ?? I'm looking for 90s Analogues ? Thanks Pete.

That's unfortunately what has happened to mine lately.

You can have it for nothing, mate. I'll be glad not to have to throw it away. Comes with original remote and a scan of the user manual.

Has good on-board sound compared to today's crappy sets.

Early 1990s is probably right.
