I used to work on these back in the 70's.
There was a service manual but it was somewhat incomplete as I recall. Certainly nothing about the mod details - see below- and that's where most of the trouble was.

I will see if I can locate the guy I used to work for - Bruce Cliff - if he's still alive....
You never know, he might still have the manual stashed somewhere.....

The model I knew came from the US as an RGB monitor and had a PAL front-end added locally, using NEC modules and tuner, I guess because they were readily available as spare parts..

Could you post a few pics and I'll tell you if it looks the same?

I did find this forum topic from which you might find someone who has a manual....

Back in the 90's I worked for the cat that bought everything from Advent for pennies
on the dollar. He made a fortune on it. By 2000 there was next to nothing left
& since only a few came in a year it went to the dump.
Anyhows all the ones I worked on were either Sylvania or Electrohome chassii. If
it uses 3 big modules its a Sylvania. Easy to fix. Just the CRT adjustments are different
but thats not an issue unless you change one of the jugs.

I'll try to post pics tomorrow. It was built in October of 1979. It has audio but zero video. I'll open it up tonight and see what the internals look like.
