INSTALLATION
1. PREPARATION FOR INSTALLATION —
All models are shipped complete, with the kinescope
in place and all adjustments properly set. Present
models are equipped with internal antennas and mechanical deflection centering. Initial production models do not include the built-in antenna and make use
of combined electrical and mechanical centering.
2. ANTENNA INSTALLATION—Chassis 12011013
and 120113B are designed to operate with high sensitivity and will provide excellent reception in many
areas with the internal antenna. If performance in a
particular locality is unsatisfactory disconnect the
internal antenna and install a portable or an outdoor
antenna, depending on reception conditions.
a. PORTABLE ANTENNA: Since surrounding
buildings and other objects can block out televi4
sion signals, an indoor antenna should be tried
in different locations before deciding on a permanent position. Uncoil the. transmission line from
the antenna base and connect to the terminals at
the rear of the chassis. Tune the antenna, after
turning on the receiver and adjusting the controls, by rotating and varying the length of the
telescopic arms for best reception. Both arms
should be adjusted to the same angular position
and extended to the same length.
PERMANENT ANTENNA: For outdoor , antenna installations, use a dipole or an array with
a combination of elements. An Emerson Tele-Ray
antenna is recommended, for best results. A 300ohm transmission line is required for connection
to the receiver.
Emerson Radio
3. RECEIVER INSTALLATION — Locate the receiver where a minimum of bright light falls directly
on the screen, although complete darkness is not recommended. Provide adequate ventilation by keeping the
back of the receiver away from the wall. Do not obstruct the ventilating slots at the rear of the cabinet.
All models are provided with a protective enclosure for the end of. the kinescope. The enclosure is
fastened to the rear of the chassis. Care should be exercised during installation so as not to strike or jar
the enclosure.
After completion of antenna and power connections, operate the receiver as outlined in Section III.
If a receiver fails to operate, or if operation is unsatisfactory, proceed with the following checks and adjustments.
CAUTJON
Only experienced personnel should attempt to make
these adjustments, as high voltage of ten kilovolts
is present at the kinescope.
a. MECHANICAL ADJUSTMENTS: For all
models, remove the chassis back and check all
tubes to make certain they are firmly seated in
their sockets. Remove the kinescope enclosure
and check the seating of the base plug. Inspect
the high-voltage anode connector.
The deflection yoke and focus coil have been properly positioned at the factory. The kinescope should
be seated back against the edges of the deflection
yoke assembly. Inspect the assembly to make
certain that all adjustment wingnuts are tight.
The ion trap should be positioned approximately
over the two internal flags near the base of the
kinescope.
b. ELECTRICAL ADJUSTMENTS: An adapter
line cord is required to operate the receiver for
the following preliminary adjustments.
1) Turn the OFF-VOLUME control a quarterturn clockwise to turn on the receiver. Set the
BRIGHTNESS control a half-turn clockwise
and turn the CONTRAST control counteiclockwise. Allow the tubes to warm up.
2) Set the SELECTOR control to an active channel and adjust the TUNING control for best
picture quality. A test pattern is preferable
for these adjustments.
3) Adjust the ion trap magnet by moving slowly
forward or backward while rotating slightly
around the neck of -the kinescope to obtain
maximum picture brightness. Reduce the
BRIGHTNESS control setting until the pattern is at7 approximately normal brilliancy. Adjust the 'FOCUS control, at the rear oi the
chassis, for maximum sharpness of raster lines.
Then readjust the ion trap for maximum brilliancy.
4) Adjustment of the deflection yoke assembly is
required if the raster is not horizontal. Loosen
the. center wingnut and rotate the assembly
slightly to correct this condition.
5) Centering of the raster in the mask is controlled by both electrical and mechanical adjustments, or by mechanical adjustments alone.
If this adjustment is required, refer to Section
V for operation of the chassis controls and positioning of the focus coil.
6) All electrical adjustments at the rear of the
chassis have been set at the factory. If the settings have been disturbed or if the kinescope
requires replacement, they must be carefully
readjusted in accordance with the procedure
outlined in Section V.
Section 3.
OPERATION
1. OPERATING CONTROLS—The operation and
function of the front-panel controls is identical for all
models. Seven controls are provided, as shown in figure 3-1.
2. TUNING—Tuning the receiver initially requires
operation of the various controls as indicated.
a. STATION SELECTION:
1) Turn the OFF-VOLUME control clockwise
approximately a quarter-turn. This turns the
receiver on and sets the sound volume to a
reasonable level.
2) Set the'SELECTOR control so that the desired
channel number is indicated on the edge of the
control. This control may be rotated in either
direction.
3) Allow approximately IS seconds for warmup.
(This time is necessary to allow the tubes to
attain the proper temperature for operation.)
4) If the desired station is-broadcasting, music or
speech will be heard. Adjust the TUNING
control for best picture quality. Readjust the
VOLUME or desired sound level.
5) Rotate the CONTRAST control to its extreme
counter-clockwise position.

6) Rotate the BRIGHTNESS control to the maximum counter-clockwise position and then adjust slowly clockwise until light is just visible
on the screen. Rotate in reverse direction until light just vanishes.
7) Adjust the CONTRAST control until a picture appears on the screen and desired contrast is attained. A further reduction in the
BRIGHTNESS control setting may improve
the apparent contrast of the picture.
8) If the picture moves vertically or horizontally,
make the adjustment indicated in steps 9 and/
or 10.
9).Adjust the VERTICAL HOLD control until
the picture stops moving up or down. Proper
operating setting of this control is in the center of the range over which the picture remains
stationary.
10) Adjust the HORIZONTAL HOLD control
until picture stops moving from side to side.
1 1 ) Readjust the CONTRAST control until the
desired picture intensity is obtained. It may
be necessary o readjust the BRIGHTNESS
control slightly at the same time for optimum
brilliance.
12) After the receiver has been operating for some
time, it may be necessary to readjust the TUNING control slightly for best picture quality.
1). CHANGING STATION DURING OPERATION :
1) Set the SELECTOR control to the proper
channel number.
2) Readjust the TUNING control if necessary to
obtain best picture quality.
3) Readjust the CONTRAST control slowly until the desired picture quality is obtained.
4) Readjust VOLUME to suitable level.
5) Readjust BRIGHTNESS control for desired
brilliancy.
c.
CHECKING OPERATION: The use of automatic frequency control in the sync circuits of
the receiver makes readjustments of the VERTICAL HOLD and HORIZONTAL HOLD
controls infrequent provided the control settings for proper operation are not disturbed.
Figures 3-2 through 3-9 indicate correct and
incorrect adjustment of the various controls.
Proper operation may be obtained by operation
of the associated control.

TUNER — The r-f. unit constitutes a separate
sub-chassis of the receiver. This sub-chassis contains the r-f amplifier, converter, and oscillator
stages. The channel switch, fine tuning control,
tuned circuits, and first video i-f transformer are
also contained on this chassis. Tuning and tracking adjustments for all twelve channels currently
in use are provided. The tuner serves to select
and amplify the desired video and audio frequencies and convert them to the carrier i-f frequencies
of 25.75 me. for video and 21.25 me. for audio.
No separation of these two intermediate frequencies is mads, and the complete signal is fed to the
first video i-f stage.
various channels. A variable-dielectric type of
condenser is used for fine tuning of the oscillator.
The output of the converter is conected to doubletuned first i-f transformer ( T l ) .
The tuner uses a rotary turret carrying individual coils for each tuned circuit, for each channel
setting. A type 6AG5 (V28) serves as the r-f
amplifier and a type 6J6 (V27) as the converter
and oscillator. The r-f amplifier is a wideband,
tuned stage whose output is inductively coupled
to the converter (V27). The oscillator (V27B)
operates in a Colpitts type circuit. Individual
slugs provide for alignment of the oscillator on the
The input capacity of V27A and trimmer A16
tune the converter coil (L4). The oscillator coil
(L5) is wound on the same form with L3 and
L4, for inductive coupling. The initial oscillator
frequency is fixed by permeability tuning of L5
and the preset .5-3 mmf. trimmer. The frequency
is varied by means of the TUNING control (3-5
mmf. trimmer) which consists of a spiral-shaped
dielectric disc rotating between fixed stator plates.
The center-tapped primary (LI) of the r-f coil
is designed to match a balanced 300-ohm line. The
secondary (L2) is tuned by the input capacity of
V28 in series with the parallel combination of
trimmer A14 and a 5 mmf. condenser. The output
of V28 is coupled to V27A by L3, which is tuned
by trimmer A15 and 'the output capacity of the
tube. A 10K resistor loads L3 to provide the
required band pass.

1. VIDEO SECTION—The video section consists
of the following sections: video i-f; video detector and
automatic gain control; video amplifier and d.c. restorer.
a.
VIDEO I-F: Both the 25.75 me. video carrier
and 21.25 me. audio carrier are amplified by three
wide-band i-f stages. The four tuned cicruits are
peaked at .different frequencies, forming a staggertuned system of relatively flat overall response to
produce the required bandpass.
Self-resonant, slug-tuned coils are used in the
i-f transformers. Two stagger-tuned i-f transformers (T2, T3) follow the overcouplscl first i-f
( T l ) . T2 is provided with a 21.25 me. trap to
Emerson Radio
attenuate the audio i - f . An overcoupled i-f (T4)
completes the amplifier stages and feeds the video
detector (V4).
The audio level is maintained just below the
point of intertcrence with the video i-t. However,
the audio i-t is not completely rejected, as the audio
signal is recovered (ac the output ot the video detector) by heterodyning with the video i-f. The
4.5 me. beat between me video and audio intermediate frequencies is obtained from the shunttuned circuit consisting of L2 and C79 and is fed
to the first audio i-f amplifier (V7).
b. VIDEO DETECTOR AND A.G.C. :The video
detector (V4A) rectifies the negative portion of
the video i-f. The resultant signal is coupled
through peaking coil LI to the grid of the first
video amplifier ( V 5 ) . V5B acts as the automatic
gain control and develops a delayed negative A.G.C.
voltage which is used to bias the first two video
i-f stages and the r-f amplifier.
c. VIDEO AMPLIFIER: The video amplifier consists of two stages (V5 and V6A). The second
stage is series-peaked and is coupled to the grid
of the kinescope (V25) and the sync separator
and d. c. restorer (VISA). The output signal of
V5 is varied by the CONTRAST control (R19)
which varies the bias of VS, to control the signal
input to V6A.
d. D. C. RESTORER AND SYNC CLIPPER:
The output of the video detector contains both a.c.
and d.c. components of the video signal, as well
as the blanking and sync pulses. Since the video
amplifiers will not pass the d.c. component of the
video signal, the background level of the picture
will vary. The d.c. restorer (VISA) develops a
bias voltage across R24 which varies with the
average video signal level. This bias voltage is
fed to the grid of the kinescope, thus maintaining
the proper brightness level. The video sync pulse
output of VISA, developed across R28, is coupled
through C22 to the first sync amplifier (V15B).
4. DEFLECTION SECTION—The sync and sweep
stages produce and control the deflection of the electron beam in the kinescope. The horizontal sweep circuits incorporate a horizontal phase detector (sync
discriminator) to maintain automatic sync with the
horizontal pulses of the video signal.
a. SYNC AMPLIFIER AND INVERTER: The
sync pulse output of VISA is amplified by two
triode stages (VISE and V6B) and fed to the
horizontal phase inverter (V11A). The integrating network of the vertical deflection circuit is
coupled to the output of VI1 A, which provides
push-pull' output for I'le horizontal sync discriminator ( V I 2 ) .
b. HORIZONTAL SWEEP: The horizontal deflection circuits contain an automatic frequency
stabilizing arrangement which improves stability
and ease of operation. The phase inverter (V11A)
feeds the horizontal sync pulses to the horizontal
phase detector (V12). At the same time, V12
receives voltages fed back from the horizontal out
put (V17) through CSS. Any phase shift between
the horizontal sync pulses and the horizontal oscillator signal will cause the input voltage applied
to one diode section of V12 to differ from that of
the other and result in a d.c. bias voltage on the
grid of the horizontal control tune ( V l l - b ) . This
bias voltage will be proportional to the phase displacement between the incoming sync pulses and
the horizontal oscillator voltage and of a polarity
determined by the lead or lag of the oscillator frequency. The plate resistance of VHP) is part of
the bias network of the grid circuit of the horizontal oscillator ( V l o ) . The output of the phase detector (V12) will ihus synchronize the oscillator
to the horizontal pulses of the video signal.
The horizontal blocking oscillator (V13) operates
at a frequency determined by C57, R75, R76, and
the plate resistance of V I I B . The horizontal sync
pulses cause V13 to lock in at the sync frequency
when the HORIZONTAL HOLD control \R75)
is properly adjusted. The sweep voltage output
of V13 is developed across R79 and is ted to the
horizontal output tube ( V I 7 ) . The signal level
to the horizontal output tube is adjusted by the
HORIZONTAL DRIVE control, R80.
V19 supplies the required driving power for the
horizontal deflection coils (L9). 'ihe output of
V17 is coupled to the horizontal deflection coils
through output transformer T9. A portion of the
output transformer secondary is shunted by the
HORIZONTAL SIZE control L6. By varying
the inductance of L6, the horizontal sweep current
may be controlled.
The horizontal damper tube (V19) acts to damp
out oscillations which occur over part of the horizontal scanning cycle. The HORIZONTAL LINEARITY control (L7) helps provide a linear
trace. V19 is a type 6W4 to eliminate the need
for a separate damper filament winding,
c. VERTICAL SWEEP: Vertical oscillator V14 is
free-running and operates at a frequency determined by C71, R95, and the VERTICAL HOLD
control (R94), in the absence of a vertical sync
pulse. The integrated sixty-cycle sync pulse derived from the video signal reaches the grid of
V14 just before it would normally trip. This sync
pulse is great enough to drive the tube to conduction and cause it to lock-in at the sync frequency.
The sync pulse thus maintains control of the vertical oscillator sweep frequency when R94 is correctly adjusted.
The output of V14 is fed to the vertical output
stage (V16) through C72. The output of V14 is
controlled by the VERTICAL SIZE control
(R96). R100 varies the operating point of V16
by varying the bias, acting as the VERTICAL
LINEARITY control The sweep voltage of V16
is coupled to the vertical deflection coils (L8) by
means of the vertical output transformer ( T i l ) .
5. POWER SUPPLIES — Two power supplies are
used to supply the required voltages. The low voltage
supply uses a transformer and full-wave rectifier. The
high voltage supply for the kinescope is of the fly-back
lype and is energized by the horizontal output tube.
a. HIGH VOLTAGE SUPPLY: The high voltage
power supply makes use of the energy supplied to
the horizontal output transformer by VI7. When
the plate current of VI7 is cut off at the instant
Emerson Radio
of retrace of horizontal scanning, the field built
up in the primary collapses and induces a highvoltage. This voltage is applied to the high-voltage
rectifier (V18). From 8.5 to 10 kilovolts is produced by the power supply. The rectified voltage
is filtered by C63 and R89, and applied to the
second anode of the kinescope. Chassis 120113B
differs from Chassis 1201 IB in that C63 is returned to B—, instead of the plate of VI9.
b. LOW VOLTAGE SUPPLY: The low-voltage
supply uses a full-wave rectifier (V29) and transformer (T12). A series arrangement is used to
supply plate voltage, to reduce current requirements. As a result, separate filament windings
are used to keep the heater-cathode potentials
within ratings, and the electrolytic filter condensers are not grounded to the chassis. The centertap of T12 is not grounded but is negative (B—)
with respect to ground. The cathodes of the sweep
circuit and video amplifier tubes are negative to
ground (about -205 volts) and the heaters are
conected to the ungrounded filament winding (Y).
6. INTERCARRIER SOUND—The audio circuits
are conventional. The 4.5 me. heterodyne between the
video and audio, i-f carriers is taken from the shunttuned circuit (L2, C79) at the output of the video detector (V4). The 4.5 me. signal is amplified by the
audio i-f amplifier (V7), whose output is coupled to
the limiter (V8). V8 feeds the discriminator (V9A) ;
the output of the discriminator is amplified by V93,
and the audio output (V10).
7y DEFLECTION YOKE AND FOCUS COIL
ASSEMBLY: The deflection yoke and focus coil
form a complete assembly. The yoke contains the
vertical and horizontal deflection coils (L8 and
L9). The focus coil (L10) combines a permanent
magnet with the electromagnet (PM and EM).
The yoke and focus coil are independently adjustable.
Vertical centering is accomplished by mechanical adjustment of the focus coil; horizontal centering is done electrically by the HOR. CENTERING control (R103). Later production of Chassis 120110B and 120113B makes use of a pivoted
mounting for the EM-PM focus coil, together
with a "wobble plate" to provide for mechanical
adjustment of horizontal and vertical centering.
The "wobble plate" consists of a ring of permeable material (steel) surrounding the neck of the
kinescope, adjacent to the EM-PM focus coil.
The plate may be moved in a plane at right-angles
to the axis of the kinescope, both vertically and
horizontally, by means of a slotted section and
lever. In addition, the focus coil may be tilted in
both directions by means of a second lever which
is adjustable from the rear of the cabinet, without
removing the back. This enables precise mechanical control of centering.
Section 5.
MAINTENANCE AND ALIGNMENT
1. GENERAL—All adjustments must be made only
by qualified service technicians. Unsatisfactory operation should be analyzed and circuits checked systematically to locate and correct sources of trouble.
WARNING
High voltages in excess of 8000 volts are present
in the chassis, during operation. Exercise care in
servicing the receiver, when energized. Do not
remove, handle, or replace the kinescope unless
gloves and goggles are worn.
2. CHASSIS REMOVAL—To remove the chassis,
follow the outlined procedure.
a. Pry off all control knobs.
b. Remove the six screws which fasten the back in
place.
c. Remove the speaker plug.
d. Remove the four chassis bolts and carefully slide
the chassis from the cabinet. When inverting the
chassis, place a supporting block under the power
transformer.
3. KINESCOPE REPLACEMENT —
CAUTION
Before removing the kinescope, discharge the tube
by cdnnecting an insulated test prod to the chassis
and to the high-voltage anode. Wear gloves and
goggles before handling the tube.
To remove the tube, proceed as follows:
a. Disconnect the high-voltage lead at the top of the
kinescope and discharge the tube.
b. Remove the enclosure which protects the base of
the kinescope.
10
c.
d.
Remove the tube socket and slide off the ion trap.
Loosen the hold-down strap at the front of the
tube and carefully withdraw the kinescope forward from the deflection yoke and focus coil assembly.
To install a new kinescope, follow the above procedure in reverse. Make certain that the tube is
seated against the edges of the deflection yoke
assembly, with the high-voltage anode connection
at the top. In replacing the ion trap, position the
unit so that the arrow points towards the front of
the chassis.
NOTE
Whenever the kinescope is removed or replaced,
the mask should be carefully cleaned with a soft,
lintless cloth. Do not use carbon tetrachloride or
any cleanser containing abrasive material. The
face of the kinescope should also be wiped clean,
before replacing the chassis in the cabinet.
4. MECHANICAL DEFLECTION A D J U S T MENTS — See figure 5-1. Replacement of the kinescope or of any of the components of the deflection
system will require readjustment of the deflection yoke
assembly, focus coil, and ion trap.
NOTE
Before making any deflection adjustments, make
certain that the enclosure is in place, covering
the base of the kinescope, and is firmly fastened.
The adjustments to the focus coil can be made
through openings provided in the enclosure.

DEFLECTION YOKE: If the raster lines are
not horizontal, loosen the center wingnut (Al)
and rotate the yoke coil assembly to correct the
condition. Tighten the wingnut firmly.
The position of the assembly along the axis of the
kinescope is fixed by the two outer wingnuts (Bl,
B2). The yoke should be positioned approximately at the center of the slots.
ANODE CONNECTION
too close to the. deflection yoke as the range of
adjustment of the FOCUS control (R55) will
be limited.
To center the raster for models provided with
a "wobble plate" and focus levers, proceed as follows (See figure 5-2):
- 1 ) Adjust the focus lever to make the focus coil
concentric with the neck of the kinescope.
Loosen the three mounting nuts (Bl, B2, B3)
slightly, if required.
2) Loosen the single wobble-plate mounting screw
(A) and slide the plate vertically or horizontally, by means of the lever, to approximately center the raster. Tighten the mounting screw.
3) Readjust focus coil lever, if required, to exactly center the raster in the mask. Both horizontal and vertical adjustments are ma'de simultaneously. Tighten the mounting nuts (Bl,
B2, B3) after positioning.
4) Note that normally only the vernier adjustment (focus coil lever) is required, unless the
kinescope has been replaced. The wobbleplate lever has been initially positioned at the
factory and usually will not require readjustment.
c.
ION TRAP : Adjust the position of the ion trap
as outlined in Section II.
5. ELECTRICAL DEFLECTION ADJUSTMENTS
— The electrical adjustment controls are located at
the rear of the chassis. For access to the adjustment
controls, remove the cabinet back. Use an adapter
line-cord to complete the a-c. power connections, with
the back removed.
Before proceeding with adjustment of the rear
controls, tune in a test pattern and set the front panel
controls for the best picture, as outlined in Section III.
Complete the adjustments of the deflection yoke and
focus coil before setting the electrical controls. Adjust
the controls in the order indicated.

resistor to the test point shown in figure 5-9. The curves should have maximum amplitude and flatness, consistent with
proper placement of the 21.25 me. marker on the i-f response curve.
8. VOLTAGE AND RESISTANCE ANALYSIS—
Voltage and resistance readings are indicated in figure
5-10, to aid in servicing the chassis. The diagram indicates typical values obtained under the following conditions.
a.
ANALYSIS CONDITIONS:
1) Line voltage maintained at 117 volts for voltage readings.
2) Measurements made with voltohmyst or equivalent.
3) All voltage measurements are in + d.c. volts
and resistance in ohms, unless otherwise noted.
4) Socket connections are shown as boUom v'<"vs.
Measured values are from socket pin to B—,
unless otherwise stated.
5) Readings made with antenna disconnected, no
signal applied and controls at normal.
6) Readings marked * are measured to ground.
9. DEFLECTION CIRCUIT WAVE FORMS —
See figure 5-11. The sweep voltages produced in the
horizontal and vertical sweep circuits may be used in
locating defects in the deflection section of the chassis.
Two separate wave forms are shown at various test
points up to the output of the second sync amplifier
(V6B), as both horizontal and vertical pulses ar? present. Different sweep frequencies are required at the
scope to distinguish between the sync pulses.
a. ANALYSIS CONDITIONS:
1) Line voltage maintained at 117 volts.
2) Controls at normal ; no signal input.
3) Peak-to-peak values indicated may vary due
to component tolerances and response of scope.

11. SECONDARY AREA RECEPTION — Noise
conditions in secondary areas of signal reception
(fringe areas), or in areas where noise is excessive
compared to signal level, give rise to problems of sync
stability. For such areas only, the following simple
changes should be made in the circuit. References are
lo the schematic diagram.
T-9-, C-64-, T-8
a.
Remove end of R8 connected to CIO and the AGC
bus; reconnect to chassis.
b.
Remove end of R17 connected to pin 7 of V4; reconnect to junction of LI, C16, and R16.
c.
Do not make this change for sets operating in
primary signal areas.

TO ALL EMERSON DISTRIBUTORS;
In order to keep you advised of circuit changes in Emerson Television
Receivers, a simple code identifying system has been put into effect.
A triangle with a number inside it will be inked on the rear wall of
the chassis next to the AC power input.
Each time any change is made in production, the number within the
triangle will change and, automatically, a field service bulletin will
be issued to you so that you may keep up to date on all such circuit
changes.
It is also important that you keep a record of these changes and file
them properly for future reference.
This bulletin is the first in this new series and pertains to the Model
637 chassis model 110. Chassis bearing the code Triangle 1 have the
following revisions incorporated:
Circuit Revisions to Correct Picture FLICKER or BOUNCE

near hth I.F. and from Pin #6 of the 6AU6 (V-5).
2. Remove red lead from the r—i terminal of C-U2 and from Pin #6
of the 6AU6 (V-5).
3. Insert a wire between the B plus 125 volt point and the *—*

MODELS 614, 637, 644, and 647
CHASSIS MODELS 1201 IOC and 1201 I3C
I.
GENERAL
The mode's listed have been revised both mechanically and electrically. The major mechanical change is the conversion
to two dual-controls in plnce of the original arrangement of four dual-controls. Such models and chassis are identified by
the subscript C or BC, as for example Model 644C. The major electrical change is the use of a multivibrator circuit in place
of a blocking oscillator, in the vertical deflection circuits. This revision applies to both B and C chassis.
The change in the arrangement of operating controls is illustrated in figure 1. The Vertical Hold control, and Brightness
and Horizontal Hold controls, are located at the rear of the chassis, as shown in figure 2. Mechanical centering is provided by
i-se of a movable focus coil controlled by a lever. The centering lever may be tilted both up and down, and side to side.

VERTICAL
MULTIVIBRATOR
Chassis code marking Triangle 6, stamped at the rear of chassis 120110B or 120113B, includes the change of the vertical
sweep generator to the multivibrator type, with an auto-transformer in the output circuit. This revision is indicated in the
schematic diagram, figure 3. All previous modifications, listed in the present service manual, are included.
3.
MECHANICAL CENTERING
Use of mechanical centering controlled by the ''wobble'' plate and focus coil lever (picture centering lever) is indicated by
code marking Triangle 7. The Huri/ontal Centering control, R-105, part no. 390107, is replaced by a 10 ohm, \-> watt
resistor.
4.
BC and C TYPE CHASSIS
Mechanical revision of chassis 1201 10B and 120113B, to provide for the control arrangement previously outlined, resulted in chassis 1201 IOC and 120115C. Note that the code markings applicable to the C-type chassis differ from those assigned
to the B-type chassis. Chassis marked BC are identical in control arrangement with C chassis but make use of extension brackets
for several controls.
5.
TUNER REVISIONS
The "Standard" turret tuner, part no. 47060?, originally used in the models listed, has been modified as to shaft length,
and becomes part no. 470607, Tin- C-typo chassis may use an alternate tuner, part no. 470605, produced by "Automatic.'*
Such chassis are identified by code m a r k i n g Triangle O. No circuit modifications are entailed; however, the arrangement and
locatton of a l i g n m e n t trimmers and oscillator slugs differs, as shown in figure 4.

Code markings, Triangle 8, on B series chassis, and Triangle 1 on C series chassis refer to the same circuit modifications to
eliminate picture tear. These markings include all previous revisions, plus the following circuit changes:
7.
a.
Removed R-27 (33K, 1 watt).
b.
Connected pin 6 of V-5 (screen) directly to B-j- (output side of filter choke connected to C-41, 40 mfd.,
marked Q).
c.
Replaced R-25 (220K) with 1 megohm, l/z watt resistor.
d.
Removed lead between pin 4 of V-10 (screen) and junction of L-13, C-31, C-36, and low end of R-46 (Vol.
control).
e.
Disconnected L-13 from junction point (L-13, C-31, etc.) and rewired to pin 4 of V-10.
f.
Added jumper wire between junction point (L-13, C-31, etc.) and pin 7 of V-9 (cathode).
