Customer Question

I have an old Hitachi Tube TV Reference CL2886TAN whic has a problem. My technician needs to get hold of a Technical Manual to find the reference of the part he needs. Do you know if a Technical Manual still exists for this TV and how I can hold of one. Many Thanks,

Hi Wilson,

How old approximately is your TV?

I work with vintage electronics all the time its also my hobby lol.

So I have quite a few sources for old technical parts and schematics.

Hi Wilson and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, yes; a Service Manual with schematic diagrams and the parts listed is available.

Would a download link to an electronic copy serve your need please?

The manual is in a Portable Document Format (PDF) file and can be viewed in most web browser. Clicking on the link when provided would open the file or doing a right click would allow then select “Save As…” to download the file. It would require Adobe Acrobat Reader or equivalent for this purpose.
