Default Philips G22K550

Hi everyone

Thought you might like to see latest pics of my first foray into CTV restoration. I totally dismantled it, sanded down the cabinet, treated woodworm holes etc. Once stained and lacquered it looks pretty reasonable.

The convergence set up pretty well too. I did have a prob with the colour (see colour bar pic below) but a very slight tweak on the line disc balance VR3168 seemed to cure it.
A slight phase error was also corrected by a tweak on the quad adjustment VR 3392.

Apparently Philips never issued a service manual for the 550 series G8. Only service supplements were ever issued. If anyone has one on decoder alignment I would love to hear from you, as I would really like to set the decoder section up correctly.

Next on my list is to replace the two large caps on the line panel and the large 600uF on the mains/H.T. panel as even though working, look like they have vented in the past.
