Color on the Olympic!

Color on the Olympic!

New video electronics installed and set is displaying a picture!

This Olympic used a very unusual 24″ black and white picture tube… when most TVs of the era were 21″ this was a king-sized model. There was no way to prevent the small bits of the top and bottom of the new picture tube from showing when the set is turned on. A 21″ set would not do this, and is something we’re just going to have to live with on this set. The next size larger tube would definitely not fit in the cabinet.
