Motorola TV


Does anyone have a TV that may or may not be exact, and is NOT working. Might be interested even if it's missing knobs, or PICTURE tube. I would actually like to remove the insides and use the shell.

Re: Motorola TV


Yep. I've got my eye on that one.

If I get more cash, I might ask him to ship. He says local pickup only, which usually means they'll ship, but only at a high price.

Yup it's a good deal, if you get it and he does ship if possible have him do the same thing Spike had done, he had the chassis removed from the housing and had them shipped in separate boxes to prevent damage.

Or you could do what I did and drive non stop for 34 hours to get it ! ...lol....it was fun but tiring as hell.

Re: Motorola TV


Yes, that would be a long drive.

Alternatively, he says I would have to arrange shipping.

I've seen that on a TV program, you can call a service and they pick it up and deliver to you. But they would likely be more expensive than just shipping it.

Re: Motorola TV


Okay, I ended up getting a different TV than that one, but it's still close, and I can modify it to improve it's accuracy.

The one you pointed out had knobs on the front that were badly worn and it was missing the power cord.

The one I picked, is close, and the knobs are in better shape and it has the original power cord. Also, the one I picked had shipping already listed, so just click and buy. No negotiating shipping.

I have special plans for this, and will post a video here when I'm done modifying the TV.
