Where can I get vintage Philips AD5060 / W8 driver
« on: November 10, 2017, 02:48:30 PM »
It seems that one of these has failed in my beloved Philips 22RH499's and I desperately need to get a replacement. Any ideas, please?!!!  :pray: :pray: :pray:

This is heavily OT: still:

I used Philips AD5060s a lot when they could still be obtained. In the process of replacing a few, I 'scored' a roll-surround from one, should anybody perhaps have an AD5060 with a similar malady.
