Nokia Hotel TV Wanted
« on: January 12, 2019, 10:25:55 am »
Hi all,

When I was growing up I remember there being two main types of CRT TV used in UK Travelodges, the first by Philips, and the second by Nokia!

I was looking for one of these Nokia TVs, mainly for nostalgia value, and saw that they're impossible to get hold of, would anyone happen to know where I could get one?

Pictures attached of the specific type that I'm looking for.

Thanks, Arlen.

As I happen to live in the 'Nokia country', I had a look at a couple of local online auction sites.
Somebody has a 14" Nokia TV (mod. 3724) for sale, currently going for 9 EUR, but unfortunately (s)he goes only for local delivery (south-eastern area of Finland)

I can think of more of those TVs still hiding in grandma's summer cottages, etc. so probably from time to time they do pop up for sale.

That is very close to the model I'm after, probably the "domestic" version of the hotel TV. Interestingly I emailed Travelodge customer support and they said that all of those TV's were phased out in 2017!

I think those were made by Phillips and Nokia together, as I remember the same style TV set, but it was branded Phillips, and then also sold as Salora as well here. Chassis inside was pretty much always going to be Phillips though.

Would you happen to have any images of the Philips version of these TV's?

Can you find this TV somewhere? Usually, such old TVs can be found in ancient hotels. My grandfather still has a similar old TV set. He keeps it in his shed. He is very sentimental and can not just throw out or replace anything. In addition to the TV, he also has an old video camera and old cassettes in the shed. By the way, all this works perfectly.
Once in one of the modern hotels in New York, I saw such a TV in the lobby. It was there as interior decoration, and it was very cool.
