    Fisher TV-PC 350- 22” (1985) >> Video turns dark and stays dark; audio keeps working normally.

    Is it worth repair? Does it sound serious?

    Thanks guys,
    Juan Camilo

    Sounds like it's dead. Repair would be more than the cost of a new TV I'd expect.

    20 years out of that display? Time for it to rest in peace. [​IMG]

    Fisher's downfall was branching out to much for sure.
    I used to like most of their mid-fi audio components.

    I mean I have even seen Fisher Toasters before the dimisse.

    Originally Fisher was the name of the guy who pretty much invented high fidelity sound reproduction in the 30s or 40s. He used to demo the idea by staging "concerts" at which the orchestra was hidden behind a curtain. At the end the curtain would open to reveal his speakers and amps.

    Fisher was a pioneering maker of true high fidelity equipment thru about the late 60s or so, high end stuff indeed, but went defunct. In the late 70s or early 80s Sanyo bought the rights to the name and Fisher trademark and started marketing "rack systems" with lots of flashing lights and such and oversize woofers to wow J6P. The stuff wasn't as bad as the average console stereo being sold at the time, but not as good as the emerging stuff from Denon and Yamaha and such. This went well for them for a while but then folks got wise and again the brand disappeared.
