The following pages will describe the checkout and any restoration done to the TV-208.

I would assume that the circuitry used is similar to other 7" sets of the period using electrostatic deflection, so I hope someone else can make use of these notes. As mentioned in the first page, these sets are more akin to the old oscilloscopes in that they used electrostatic deflection and therefore poses a different set of problems. Actually the new digital scopes are now just some A/D circuitry connected to a computer and monitor.
