View Full Version : OT: Elderly chroma IC needed for CTV

Hi Team

My garage TV has gone on the fritz and insists on showing me everything in glorious monochrome. It's an Aussie Toshiba C820 circa 1978/79 that got smashed in transit from Oz to here. I "acquired" it off the insurance company and rebuilt it with a new cabinet and CRT.

It has worked faithfully ever since, but now the chroma IC (type TA 7169P) has sucked the proverbial kumera.

It owes me nothing but I can't resist a challenge. I don't recall any NZ produced CTV using a TA7169P but Toshiba ICs were used in a variety of imported sets so there's always the forlorn hope that a current or ex techie out there has one in their residual rubbish somewhere.

If you have, I'd be delighted to take it off your hands (for suitable consideration of course).

Cheers

BTFT Godfather, hence my appeal here:|

Repairing for the challenge is one thing, but spending megabucks to import a part is not on my agenda. If I don't find a replacement I'll have to (shudder) go out and buy another TV. It is definitely the IC unfortunately, all the pins (bar earth) are up around 12 volts so it's had an internal haemorrage I fear.
