We service all makes of American* sets, including RCA, GE, Philco and Zenith, and short lived makes like Arvin, FADA Andrea, Stewart-Warner, and others.

We will service some makes of foreign sets.

Due to a negative experience we had servicing a foreign color set (we got it working), we need to estimate more man hours compared to those for American sets.  Please call or Email for further information.

It doesn't matter if we restore a cheap All-American Five radio or a top of the line color TV combo.  We stand behind our work.  If we restore something for you and there is a problem, WE WILL MAKE GOOD.

Warranty covers Labor performed as part of a Restoration.  Parts actually replaced during the restoration process may also include a warranty, such warrantees are dependent upon and administered by the manufacturers of those components.  Generally, only NEW vacuum tubes by current-production tube manufacturers will feature factory warranties.

An email must be received prior to the Warranty Expiration Date printed on the Service Invoice to initiate a Warranty claim.  Removal of the set's back cover, unless specifically instructed to do so, will void the Warranty.  Specific instructions will be given for any situation requiring removal of a tube, fuse, or other access to the inside of the set to resolve a technical issue.  Please provide a detailed description of any observed malfunction.

Shipping damage claims shall be handled by the shipping service provider.  Shipping insurance is MANDATORY on all completed restorations which are to be shipped upon completion.  Shipping damage is NOT a Warranty issue and shipping providers WILL be billed for the consultation services of Amptech Systems at Tutorial rate for any research we are called upon to perform as part of damage claim resolution.     

Technical Support

As part of the Labor Warranty on completed Restorations, Technical Support on the restored set is provided free of charge.  Email for details.  Out-of-warranty technical support is billed at Tutorial rate.
