Hello all!

For about 5 years I've had a beautiful 17" HMV E1-01 (no channel 0 or 5A) in a blonde cabinet in all original condition. I'm pretty sure it's a 1956/57 model - would that be correct? I've pasted in a picture below:

The set does turn on, and the back of the CRT lights up, but alas, no picture. The sound works and picks up local VHF stations without a problem. I think the high voltage unit needs repairing and capacitors replaced.

Unfortunately I don't know enough about electronics, but I'd love to have it repaired properly. Anyone out there interested in taking on the job (obviously for the right price). I'm on the Central Coast 1 hour north of Sydney.

Cheers, Mark

I have been in contact with someone in Sydney who is able to repair your set for you. He has just joined this site so if he does not post a reply in the next couple of days, I'll provide you with his contact details.

Hopefully your lovely HMV will not have to wait much longer before you can watch your old TV shows on it.

Dear Morren.

I am an Ex TV Tech living in Penrith N.S.W.

I am willing to get your H.M.V. TV going for you at no cost.

I do not know how to contact you as we are not permitted to post e-mail addresses nor telephone numbers. I was not able to e-mail you directly via your profile.

Please let me know how to contact you without breaking the Forum rules.

Wayne

Members are quite free to "unhide" their email addressees in their profiles, if they so choose. They are set to hidden by default.

Hi Wayne,

That is so very kind of you - I'd really like to give you something for your time - at the very least, if you need to buy any parts, I'd definitely pay for them. Otherwise a carton of beer (or 5)!

I've 'unhidden' my email address on my profile so if you can drop me an email to that address I could work out when I could drop it down to you.

Once again, I appreciate your kindness and look forward to hearing from you in the near future.

Thanks again,

Mark

I do not know how to contact you as we are not permitted to post e-mail addresses nor telephone numbers. I was not able to e-mail you directly via your profile.

This is more of a guideline than a rule. I don't plan on enforcing this as members are ultimately responsible for how they use their personal information.

The advantage of directing people to your profile page and enabling the display of your e-mail address there is that only members can view the address. If an e-mail address is posted on the forums anyone can read it, including spam robots.

Whilst no anti-spam system is perfectly secure, this is about as good as it can get on a forum.

I will update point 4 above to include a brief instruction on how to display e-mail addresses when one wants to make this information available.
