Do you have Philco TV, VCR, stereo, CD Players or appliance service info?

The short answer is no, sorry. This website is dedicated to antique Philco radios from the 1928 through 1947 time period. I do not have any information on antique television or tv, Predicta tv, stereo or stereophonic systems, Philco vintage music system, retro turntables, jukeboxes, recorders, CD players, DVD players, VCR’s, tape recorders, clock radios, microwave ovens, stoves, air conditioners, dehumidifiers, kitchen appliances, refrigerators, washing machines, washer/dryers, IR or infrared remote codes, phonograph needles or Philco-Ford products.

Here are a few links to other consumer type products which may carry the Philco brand name now:

No I do not, sorry. There is no information on other radio manufacturers on my website. I only have PHILCO service information. For radios other than Philco, or Philco radios later than 1947, try searching these two good websites:

Will you repair my Philco radio for me?

Sorry, I do not offer any kind of repair, repair parts or restoration services. There are many good repair and restoration services available online.

I have a Philco Model “xxx”. Can you tell me what it’s worth?

There are so many variables to consider when determining a radios value that it is very difficult to pin down a dollar amount. Auction websites are a very BAD place to get an idea of value as bidding skews any actual values. You can get a general idea of approximate worth, however, from this value guide for radios from 1920-1950.
