So I want to replace the capacitors in my 1954 Philco tv but I don't know where i should look to obtain the schematics for its inside layout. To most of you folks I probably sound like a dimwit but I don't know who to ask so any info helps.https://showbox.tools/

Post the model number. Someone here likely has one to share.

Right. When doing any sort of work (as well as useful other info) it is a good idea to have the service data on what you have. The model and chassis is where to start when looking for service data.

When you have the model & possibly chassis numbers look for the Sams Photofact.
https://www.samswebsite.com/
DO NOT buy it from Sams, thats a last resort. Try to find a real hard copy or free scan first.
Original Sams paper manuals are super high quality printing. They also use pictures to locate parts.

BTW If you can, check the CRT FIRST before putting $$ into it.

Another place to look for (free) schematic and/or service info is the Early Television Foundation website: http://earlytelevision.org/tv_schematic_diagrams_philco.html. Most of their online schematics are prior to '54, but there are a good smattering of later models.

Also, welcome to the Forum. Lots of help available for the asking! Are you familiar with recapping and servicing old electronics?
