Title: Zenith model HR966P Allegro Console
Post by: dougtaylor on July 08, 2016, 10:25:56 AM
I believe to be a 1967-68 model from my childhood. I listened to a lot of old country music my dad would play on this console. And of course I became a musician as a result.
I am searching for a set of schematics and/or service information so I can restore my fathers old console that he left to me upon his passing. Does anyone know where I can find this information? Sams Photo Facts use to be a great source but they no longer exist. Zenith is owned by LG now and they were of no help.
Thank you!

Doug nice to have you aboard!


SAMS still exists but you will need a chassis number to locate your schematic so you will need to open up the console and look for some numbers on the chassis.

Once you have the chassis number you might also check here for a copy of the SAMS (http://www.stevenjohnson.com/photofact.htm), Steve's scans are much better than what you get from SAMS IMO and the price is better too!!

I will second what Harbourmaster says, if you can download the Sams from Steve's site you will be much happier.  I downloaded a Sam's for my Zenith console and basically couldn't read it.  What they do is to shrink an 11x17 page down to a letter sized one, so you have 2 pages on each side of an 8.5x11 inch piece of paper.  The schematic was basically un-useable without a magnifying glass and if you blew the diagram up, the resolution was so poor it was pixellated to the point of being blurry.  I paid $15.00 for the Sams from Sam's, and $6.95 for the same one from Steve's.  Better quality and less expensive, what's not to like!.  Here's a link to the area in Steve's site that has the schematics    http://www.theschematicman.com/
