Hi all I recently acquired a Philco 269 medium / long wave radio receiver and amplifier. The plug had been cut off. On the inside it said it was rated for 200-250V AC, so I wired on a plug with a 3A fuse and plugged it into the mains (220-240V AC). Unsurprisingly nothing happened. The switches seem to have a tactile response that suggests nothing mechanically wrong with them. I can see the variable capacitor rotating when I move the tuning dial. Other than that I have no idea about amplifiers, tubes, RF etc. especially not those manufactured in the 1930s! I managed to find a service manual here with a lot of technical information but haven't been able to deduce much from it. Is there anything that might we worth looking at / trying first? It would be nice to give it a new lease of life as it really is a thing of beauty. Before I forget - photos!
