Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I have a Westinghouse tube radio, AM/FM table model, uses a selenium rectifier. I need a schematic for this radio, do not have a model number, but chassis number is 240635. Would appreciate your help.

    Robotek,

    Thanks for your reply, the 240635 is stamped on the chassis and is identified as a chassis number. This radio is in a plastic case and the model number appeared to be on the bottom of the radio in paper, but the attached (glued) paper has been removed. Where would I be able to find a schematic with this limited information.

    Thanks for your help and I hope you have a sterling day,

    driggins

Hi driggins

Wondering if that may be the serial number that you have quoted. Most Westinghouse radios that I have been able to find are allocated model numbers as WRXXX
If it has a solid state rectifier then it will be post war vintage at least.

Are there any other identifying marks on the radio?

regards
robotek

    I guess that I wonder what you are needing the schematic for? MOst vintage Tube circuits are relatively the same. Fault finding comes down to experience with what voltages you see where. In general, if it is in original condition, it will have many leaky paper/wax capacitors, composite carbon resistors that may have doubled in value. These are generally the things that stop these old girls from working. Are you wishing to restore the radio?

You may not be able to get a schematic. You need to be able to troubleshoot electronics without a schematic. Check where the AC cord connects to the circuit board. In general there should be a fuse and a transient suppressor. Next will be the transformer if there is one or rectifier diodes. These usually fail in a lightning strike. There is also the probability of other component failures, but you won'y know that until you repair these components.

The whistle on either side of my 1966 lionel zw transformer does not work


The contacts on the switch may be dirty but the most likely problem is that both selenium rectifiers are dead. Replacement silicon rectifiers are available if you want to do the repair yourself. Check the internet for suppliers. You can get the ZW repaired at most good Lionel service centers for a reasonable price. Get a list of service centers by searching on-line or at Lionel.com.

Finding Marconi radio schematic model79-c


If it is a 791 instead of a 79, check here:
http://bama.edebris.com/manuals/marconi/

you may find a similar model.

If it is a Marconiphone,
http://www.nostalgiaair.org/Resources/246/T0000246.htm
Although there were some Marconi models that may not be int he Nostalgia Air database for any number of reasons, partly due to the fact Rider usually put them in with the Miscellaneous models.

Other possible sources could be in the various "Shortwave guides" that were published in that era- many included schematics from the manufacturers. Lindsay publishing has reprinted 1936 and 1937, whether they are still available is tough to say, but you can check the listing of what Lindsay publications has on hand at http://www.lindsaybks.com just look for the book list.

My own suggestion- Recap it completely first. Then check the resistors to make sure none are outside of the tolerances- usually 20 percent. From there, tweak the IF;s and the radio should come to life even with weak tubes.

If you are in the UK, or Europe, there should be a few dedicated museums that may have the schematic available as well- just use search engines less used. In other words- forget google or bing- Although google.de or google.it might give you some hits if the radio is not of US manufacture.

I have a Westinghouse L2046NV Monitor and it does not come on. The monitor has gotten worse over time. I have removed the power board and found the six capacitors to the right are all bulging and 3 of them...


You may want to get the capacitor kit, but you need to get the board number used in your monitor version.
Eample of the kit:
http://cgi.ebay.com/Westinghouse-L2046NV-REPAIR-KIT-LCD-Monitor-DAC-19M005-/320608826408

I will not use RadioShack caps, since they are not low ESR type which is required for switching power supply, they will not last if you use generic electrolytic caps.

You should remove one cap at a time so you can see what the value is for each cap.

Or www.digikey.com just make sure to use caps with low ESR, 105c, high ripple current, long life rating such as PANASONIC FM or FC series.

Alternator is pushing 20 volts


1981 used selenium rectifiers which were fairly low amperage. Not likely that overvoltage is the problem, but rather a failed rectifier and not changing to DC voltage (half wave). Get a 50-amp silicon rectifier from Radio Shack and replace it. Better yet, if you now have a headlight law in your state, change to a 50-amp bridge rectifier and gain more charging from the same alternator... be sure to get some help with the conversion from simple rectifier in-line to the battery and a bridge rectifier connecting both battery terminals to both alternator and ground.
