    Hello..

    I have the same radio stored for 30 years in my attic (from grandfather estate)....did you ever find out any info or details from anyone about restoration or value?u

    I have restored 2 of those chassis. The 8A02 is the chassis model, nit the model of the console. Tubes are available as well as other parts you will need to replace (capacitors) for the set to work safely and reliably. You can ruin a good radio by plugging it in, if the capacitors have failed and usually they have, you can burn out the transformer which is expensive. I restore vintage radios so feel free to contact me sometime for more info. Remember don't power then up to test . Especially Zeniths because they designed their transformers on the edge of their limits. Any strain will burn them out. That set is a monster, but they sound great when restored.

My problem had nothing to do with the Radio Shack VGA PC Camera Webcam. I was asking about an old Zenith console radio model 8A02. I was trying to find out where I can still buy the tubes for it and what the radio is worth.

You need to resolder the vertical IC and replace any electrolytic caps in the same immediate area. If you can find someone with electronics experience they know what I'm saying....It can be repaired.

Schematic for Zenith SF 120 console/Chassis 3B31 and 9B22


This model is old enough to not be available electronically. Your best bet is to locate a Sams Photofact copy of the manual. Check your local library as many carried these. Otherwise, check the web for Sams. These are usually available for purchase for less than $15.

ZENITH laser not working


Have U tried calling Zenith customer support? If they cannot help U, you usually can get it serviced at your local Radio Shack, although they may charge a lot, possibly as much as your unit is worth. You might want to google the laser lens and then see if you can get a replacement part, and then pay your local service center to put it in for U.

Absolutely not worth repair. You have described a classic symptom of Zenith picture tube failure, and about 99% of the time the main board in the TV is ruined as well. You've gotten good life from the set (manufacturers figure tube life is around 7 years these days), so it's time to replace it.

I'd get the lamp replaced for sure. If it has a ballast - change that at the same time. However, a Zenith repair center should be able to tell you whether it's worth doing or not.

Picture is dark


Does not seem like a bad tube alone. Could also be that the Video output Transistors Supply Filter capacitor having dried out. It is a 100mfd 160V capacitor, which on replacement will improve the brightness of the immage. And yes, you could also try increasing the heater voltage (Filament Voltage)of the Pictuire tube, this will definitely increase brightness, but will reduce the life of the Picture tube. You gotta think - 10 year old TV, should I repair or exchange and get a new one???
