AM FM Philharmonic Bleeder Resistors

Started this discussion. Last reply by Joseph W Strickland May 8. 25 Replies

I am trying to help a friend who is working on a Philharmonic AM FM model. There are two bleeder resistors shown on the schematic of the tuner chassis. One has +250V on one end and multiple taps. The…Continue

Misidentified 800B on eBay

This morning while searching eBay for Fisher audio equipment I noticed an E H Scott 800B listed as a Fisher from the 1950s. There were only two pictures of the unit in a blonde cabinet. I don't know…Continue

Over the last several days I have been working to get the 800B chassis to fit into my Metropolitan 16A cabinet. As part of the process I have moved the AM loop antenna somewhat forward inside the…Continue

"On both the 7 knob and the 9 knob AM sets the the 600 ohm is 500k, and the 500 ohm is 50k. They were close on the schematic, weren't they...LOL. The Sensitivity control is 1k.  I thought you were working on an AM/FM set?"

"Norman; Thanks for that input. I suspected that was the purpose of the control, but was uncertain. Do you know the value of the Sensitivity control? The ends are marked "Lo" and "Hi", but there is no "R" number shown…"

""FID" = fidelity as in high fidelity.  Really, it is broad bandwidth as opposed to narrow bandwidth or selective. Norman"

"I have another question on the Philharmonic LW/AM/SW version, what is the value of the Sensitivity Control? It is not specifically identified in the parts list and I think it may be R33, a 2000 ohm control. There are two resistors in parallel with…"

"Jeff; Thanks for this update. The resistor with the ? was so blurry that I could not tell if it was an 8 or a 9. Since it is a 1K ohm resistor it has to be an R9. Having two pins identified as pin 4 makes no sense at all. However I tend to agree…"

Text Background Color

Posted on December 29, 2016 at 6:19pm 3 Comments

I am wondering if there is any way to change the background color displayed with the text of posts by members. I have difficulty in reading the text with the gray background color. I have had cataract surgery and have to use a magnifying glass in order to read the posts. A white background makes it easy for me to read the posts without resorting to the magnifying glass. I was able to make this change on my personal page, but not here on the forum or blogs.

800B Schematics and Relay connection differences

Posted on November 23, 2016 at 10:40am 1 Comment

Overall E H Scott Co. did a great job of documenting the 800B model versions, however, there is one area where they seemed to go into uncharted territory. The labeling of the Jacks and Plugs on the two chassis tends to lead to confusion. Normal practice in the industry is to have J numbers coincide with their mating P numbers. In the case of the 800B: the P1 Receiver plug of the Receiver chassis mates with J3 of the Power Supply chassis; P2 audio plug of the radio chassis mates with J4 audio…

First Introduction to E H Scott Receivers

Posted on November 15, 2016 at 8:45pm 5 Comments

My first exposure to E H Scott receivers was through a friend who had acquired an 800B which was not functional. I was working in consumer electronics repair at the time. He had been unsuccessful in finding anyone who could repair it in Dallas. I finally agreed to try. It turned out to only have a shorted bypass capacitor in the FM IF strip that took out a B+ isolation resistor. It played fine after parts were replaced. No tubes were at fault and were still working very well.

My…
