    TUBE TESTER

    Post by MarcVBelgium on Fri May 16, 2014 11:00 am


    While cleaning up the "back-stage" of a HiFi-shop, I encounter several interesting
    pieces, like a Trio WE-24 integrated 2 x 10W tube amplifier (1960) and....... this :

    This is really something, probably some 50-60 years old. It is not mine (yet...), I would'nt know
    how to use it anyway, but it is definately nice to look at and "dream away"   

    Maybe some of you have some nostalgic thoughts with this..

    All the best

    Just let me say.... In Europe, this is a mighty fine "find"... I've got it for free.....

    I am asking around if someone can tell me how to use it... if I do, I will comment on that..

    Hi Marc ---

    I did a google search on TV-7D/U and found some pdf's with instruction manuals for the TV-7 family of Testers.

    Here are the Links!

    Some of this info should get you started, look at the 2nd Link.

    Hope this helps,
    Stew

    Hi Stew,

    thanks for all these links, it seems I will have some reading to do !

    But even if I cannot figure it out, it still remains a nice "conversation" piece.. :-))) lol

    All the best

    Hi Marc -- Take a look at the jvg link:

    http://www.jvgavila.com/tv7.htm

    Some of these testers were made by Hickock and some by other companies.

    There is also a lot of Hickock Documentation out there. The trick would be to fined the Tester Model that your TV7D/U is based on.

    =====>> YOU NEED TO LOOK AT THIS PAGE:

    There is also an operation video for your D/U at:

    and another for the A/U model:

    Like I said, lots on info out on the WEB,
    Stew
