  We do NOT "restore" vintage vacuum-tube type televisions: they are too unreliable! 

     However, we can "Retro-fit" some vintage TVs (our "COLOR Conversion") with a modern CRT-type picture tube and chassis, 
                        which is controlled via a Remote Control or you can use an "IR emitter"

                      
Our TV sets are available, set-up as:

   
Prop / As Found: Complete vintage TV with picture tube, knobs and trim (not working).

   
Empty Prop: Empty cabinet with knobs and trim (no picture tube & no chassis inside).

   
Lighted Prop: New Feature! Non-working prop TV  with knobs and trim, back-lighted
    
              internally so the picture tube 'glows' when the set is plugged in.

   
Working: Complete vintage TV, still working (not restored or repaired).

 
24 Frame: Needed for certain movie filming requirements.  Sets marked:  w/Vert Hold
    
              have RCA Jacks and S-Video, & can be synched for 24 frame playback.

   COLOR Conversion: These are Vintage TVs, Retrofitted with a modern color CRT & chassis
                  and use a remote control. They have Coax, RCA Jacks, and S-Video inputs.
                        
(Remember,
COLOR Conversions take 2-4 weeks to set-up!)

     We can now retrofit some vintage TVs, using new Flat Screen TV sets! 

               
COLOR Conversions have a 60 day repair/replacement limited warranty.
