Default Bush TV 12B To restore or not to restore advice please

I have had this Tv for about 15 years on display unrestored
The lady I bought it from was only just down the road and said her husband was a rep for Philco in the 70s and he found it on a door step just about the be thrown out together witH a KB toaster radioHe took them home and put it in a tin trunk and thatís where they lived for well over 30 years. I got them both for a good price. Infact I offered her what I thought was the going rate but she said it was far to much and wanted me to have it as she Knew I would look after it.
I donít like things not working so just wondering what my options are as to getting it going.
The first major problem is a label on the back from a Tv dealer in Hatton saying faulty LOPT .
The question is should this put me off or carry on knowing the tube could be faulty and maybe more . Obviously the normal things like caps etc as well . Andy

I have restored a TV12B, Actually not too bad to work on, There is a separate line output & EHT transformer on these sets.
I would start by testing these before anything else.

Here is the link to my restoration, I hope it helps.

Thanks for the replyís
Mark I have had a quick look at your restoration before. This time I have looked at it very thoroughly.
I think I will have a go at restoring it so Iím sure I will require some good advice from the people on here.
It would be nice as well to tell the old lady I got it from its working while sheís still about.
I wonít start it for a few weeks so I can get other things finished so I can have a clear run.
I will probably start a new thread when I get stuck and Iím sure that wonít take long Andy

Your set certainly is in better shape than mine was, I think these are easier to restore than a TV22, as the RF deck does not need 20+ capacitors replacing.

Good luck with the restoration, these little sets perform well once restored.
I look forward to following your progress.
