TV Servicing Equipment ca. 1955
In most European countries, the TV set took about ten years to become an affordable and common electrical item in households. The equipment discussed in this article dates from about 1955 and was Philips’ way to give backing to their massive sales of early TV sets (all with valves, of course). Retailers selling Philips TV sets would also install Philips test equipment in the service and repair department.
