Motorola Television
 1948 television service manual for the VT-71 & '73series

I have never seen a more comprehensive manual for servicing a television receiver. This scarce manual covers this series of TV's in such detail, it's like a training manual. This is a high quality reprint of the original factory manual based on the TS-4 series chassis and covers:

Chassis; TS-4B, TS-4C, TS-4D, a supplement (included) covers chassis TS-4E, TS-4F, TS-4G. I have added the schematic for chassis TS-4J, a total of 8 easy to read 11 x 17" fold out schematics.

The manual is well illustrated with more than 140 pages and includes:

  • installation instructions

  • circuit theory

  • block diagrams

  • wave forms

  • parts list

  • schematics

  • troubleshooting charts

  • alignment instructions

The manual has very explicit detailed circuit explanations, trouble shooting charts, very specific alignment instruction and chocked full of  photographs, waveform images and anything you would want to properly service and understand this series of televisions. Much of the information including alignment can be applied to other electrostatic deflection Motorola models.

Re-Mastered, comb bound reprint, card stock covers, 8.5 x 11" book format with more than 140 pages including 8,  17 x 11" loose leaf schematics (like was the original).


This has been my most popular TV service manual. So popular that  I spent more than 20 hours completely re-mastering this  massive book (over 140 pages) with only a slight increase in price.
