    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.

If you have it still installed on your old computer and still have that computer you may be able to tell what brand and model it is from there. If it's a USB webcam you might need to plug it into the old computer for this.

In the Mac OS your webcam would probably show up on your computer's desktop as it's own icon and tell you what brand it is and possibly model as well.

If you're working in Windows, you should be able to view it from your device manager. Let me know if you're working on a Mac or other OS and need instructions on how to look at the webcam's properties in there. There also may be associated software installed on your old computer that says the brand name and/or model to give you clues.

Often in Windows webcams have software that runs automatically when the computer's on and it's plugged in (sometimes even when it's not plugged in) that also makes a little icon (picture) in the bottom right of a Windows screen, by the time. Hovering over the icons that look like your webcam should allow you to pick the correct one to open and identify what webcam you have.

If you don't still have it installed or don't have access to your old computer, you may be able to recognize it on common webcam sites. Logitech makes popular webcams & their site has pics of their different models so you can get the correct download here: http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/support_downloads/downloads/webcams/&cl=us,en

All this is assuming that you tried plugging it in already. If you haven't tried it, you might want to as OS's often come pre-loaded with various device drivers.

Hope that helps! :)
