Here are some photos of the Fada TV30.  The restoration is in progress and I expect to have it fully assembled later this week as my schedule allows.  The testing of the set showed a need for replacement of all paper capacitors and several out-of-tolerance carbon resistors also needed to be replaced.  These photos are of the chassis during restoration.  Operation of the chassis outside the cabinet was with the help of a 5AXP4 picture tube which was specifically designed for bench testing of television chassis.
