I purchased a Royal 270 but I can’t find any information about that model. Anyone have info about the 270’s?
Hi, I went to a yard sale and got a Zenith Royal 275 Radio for $3.00. No instructions on it put in new batteries but don’t work. Should I take it to someone to look at it?
Hi Elisa, Nice find. I would say yes, take it to somebody if you know someone. It could be something simple, or perhaps not. Usually repairs start at $30, mostly for labor as parts are cheap if available. Good luck. Gary

Hi Rodney, I buy some Zenith Royal transistors only. What do you have and where are you located?
