My 1980 Quasar Color Console Television Model WL9439SP, Playing The Ghost Planet, Lost in Space, Columbia House VHS, I had so many experts say such negative things about this television, I just quit working on it, but this morning I turned it on, and went outside and water my planets, an hour later when I came in, the picture was in color, and works great, but apparently the sound disturbs the picture, so I leave it low, so happy the color is much better now, I heard that someone had one of these consoles and the family would just leave it on so the picture tube played with good colors.

Finding a Replacement Quasar Television was an Epic Search over Many Years

Many years ago, I had a beautiful Quasar Color Console television, it was a Renaissance designed beauty, with lattes work over the speakers, and lovely Quasar Dynacolor designed chassis. The economy went south, and I lost my second job as a theater projectionist, and before long I lost my home in a foreclosure. My daughter and I had been moving a ton of stuff out of the house, but since we had to drastically downscale, we ended up leaving a lot of beautiful things behind. One was the Quasar television. Years I have been searching to replace the television that I lost. Then I found this television that was an older model of the same design that I had it was the big sister to the one I had lost; this one was a Quasar Color Console Television Model WL9439SP. Had a rotating control knob instead of the digital buttons I had on my original Quasar, and probably more milage on the CRT, but it reminded me of the one I had lost, the cabinet was almost identical.

Older Televisions like this Quasar. Bring back so Many Fond Memories of the Past

The nice thing about these older televisions is they bring back so many fond memories of the past, all the holiday shows that I once watch, and television shows. Playing a VHS tape on this Quasar color console television, Model WL9439SP, brings back so many memories. The early Dynacolor Quasar’s models had such a soft pastel quality on the color that it displayed. The speakers produce so clear sound of the actors voices. Doctor Smith rich voice booms out of the television like he is in the room. I realize this is not a digital high definition picture, but it is warm and nostalgic, and shows what the original show would have look like being broadcast back in the 1960s. So many of the lovely console have been destroyed, it is a wonderful hobby collecting and saving these for future generations to admire and enjoy.

Quasar Televisions from 1974 until 2005 were Basically Panasonic Designs

The beginning of Quasar was in 1967, it was an offshoot of the Motorola Company. Quasar was the first to have a model line of televisions that were transistorized including color televisions. In these early days Quasar was marketed as having parts in a drawer next to the picture tube that were easily serviceable. Soon all of the Motorola televisions were sold as being manufactured by Quasar of Motorola. Within a f few years Matsushite Electric better known as Panasonic purchased Motorola, and that is one of the reasons this Quasar Color Console Television Model WL9439SP, is basically a relabeled Panasonic product. The Quasar televisions from 1974 until 2005 were basically Panasonic designs.

This Older Quasar is a rebadged Panasonic, they are good Sets, very Reliable

The older Quasar television the one I just purchased for $50.00 has been well used, but appears to have been well taken care of, for one thing it has caster wheels, and the cabinet is in good shape, no signs of abuse on the trim. This older Quasar is a rebadged Panasonic, they are good sets, very reliable and not bad to work on for repairs. So even though she has been well used I hopefully will get so more years of service out of her.

The Early Dynacolor Quasar’s Models came into Being in the Late 1970s

The early Dynacolor Quasar’s models came into being in the late 1970s, at this time the Quasar Company was established as the television sales operation for Canada and North America, with the new Company name “Quasar Electronics, Inc.”, it was during this era that the manufacturing both televisions, and the new marketed microwave ovens became very popular products. The new flagship headquarters back then was located at Franklin Park, Illinois. In the year 1981, the Quasar Electronics corporation became an innovative center for improving operations and production. The televisions and other products during this era were being praised by the media for their high quality, and the durability of the televisions and other products.

I Remember Back in the 1990s, Countless TVs being Thrown away into Trash Compactors

It is really a fun hobby to collect vintage televisions, if you have the room for the floor models the even better, because you can go big. Do not let people tell you that you are a hoarder, because actually you are saving pieces of our history with each model you save, and add to your collection. So many people are working none stop throwing away our past as fast as they can. The landfills are full of so many once priceless electronic masterpieces. It took me many years of searching to find this Quasar color console television, there are so few of them left in existence. I remember back in the 1990s watching countless televisions being thrown away into trash compactors, not because they were broken, but because they were not the latest digital creation. It is rather sad, people threw away mint LPs back then because CDs were the wave of the future, but now LPs are coming back, why? Because people love the sound and the rich tones of the LPs over the tin can sound of the CDs. Now people are collecting these older televisions because will they are well made and last for a very long time. Also gamers like playing their games on the analog style television better than the new flat screen creations.

It is Sad and Shocking how Few Repair Shops are left to Service these Amazing Televisions

It is rather sad and shocking how few repair shops are left to service these amazing analog era televisions. In this age it is best to acquire as much knowledge as you can in repairing, and maintaining you vintage collection of televisions. Thankfully there are many Facebook pages, and online sites for collectors to go for help with their hobby. You will be surprised at how many folks have the same hobby and passion that you might have for a particular era of televisions, or brand of TV. These hobbies also spill over to stereos, 8 track tape players and a whole range of amazing creations. Some collectors only like three in one models, that is a television, stereo and turntable all in one cabinet. Others prefer just the stand alone televisions, while others are strictly stereo collectors

I Remember back when there were Large Stores that Sold and Displayed only Televisions

I remember back when there were large stores that sold and displayed only televisions, with lovely floor models of every make and model on the showroom floor. That is the era that this Quasar Console came from. It was a major event to go shopping for a television, especially one that would go into your living room or den. Usually the twenty five inch screen models of this era where the top of the line, and came in beautiful wooden cabinets with what every style was popular at the time. The era that this Dynacolor Quasar came from was late 1970s to the early 1980s, Renaissance and Spanish influences where in the cabinet design to reflect the style of the era the televisions was produced.
