I only test 7JP4's in a working set.

Yes testing in a working set seems to be the only real option.
I tried rejuvenating one, but it had no effect.

I know I could start a new thread, but since this TV is directly related, I thought I would post it here.

Is that a bad idea?

Anyhow, last May I was at an auction mostly to get a Grunow radio, and I ended up purchasing this Admiral TV because it went for practically nothing.
It turns out to be an Ebony model 19A12S

Surprisingly it cleaned up well and doesn't have a single crack! How on earth it survived, I don't know.
It looks as if it may have been submerged at one point in its life as it was covered in a brownish rusty looking film.

Not sure what will be found inside.

I need to fix one of these so I can at least check other 7JP4s

Looks like your really going to fire it up!!!!!

I got one of those for cheap but needs the fine tuning knob& channel selector knob. Haven't had it on the bench yet. Also have a Chinese grille set that I serviced a number of years ago. Like all have said easy to work on and good players for a 7"job.

Yeah, maybe setting it on the range wasn't the best idea for a photo :lol:

I see these came with different speaker grill patterns. I like yours better than the waffle design of mine.

I think the waffle grille is the most common of the three. The Chinese and wooden model are a bit harder to come by. OBTW there are repro of the channel indicator plate your looks a little small.
