|NOTES||Released barely 6 months before ITV capable sets began to appear, the
TV32 is now one of the rarest of the Bush bakelite televisions. The cabinet
is identical to the later Band I/III TV62
but uses the older chassis layout.
The cabinet design follows on from that most yuppie of all bakelite sets, the TV22, but fitted with a more modern CRT, a relatively new-fangled rectangular tube.
|SERVICE DATA||You can download provisional service data from the Bush section of the TV manufacturers page.|
Bought as a scrap set by Danger Man ;-) who took pity on it and had a
right battle getting it to work again. The knobs are wrong (right style,
wrong text) and the cabinet has a large crack.
|WHERE FOUND||Bought privately for 40 notes.|
|Yes, this is the rarest of the Bush bakelites, but rarity is relative - huge numbers of Bush sets from the period survive today.|
The standard Bush "one above, one below" chassis layout. The (lower) RF chassis is easilly removed which results in excellent access to the components on the underside of the (upper) timebase and power supply chassis. It's a shame that more manufacturers didn't have such consideration for the poor muppets that had to mend their sets.
I'm not entirely sure but I suspect it is possible that one of
the resistors and a couple of the caps might not be original :-)
No big suprise the speaker is a replacement. TV22, TV32, TV43, they all
seem to turn up with their original speaker rotted away. I don't know why.
