Hernan, at "German Auto Radio Repair" just finished my 1951/1954 Telefunken. I never expected him to get it working as it was missing many parts. It is going in my '54 Coupe under restoration. ................................Jim.

Has anyone used Vintageblau (http://www.vintageblau.com) to repair /restore their Blaupunkt radio?

It is some of the parts that are becoming unobtainable such as switch/potentiometer combinations, transformers and knobs. Capacitors, tubes and diodes are all replaceable.

As mentioned elsewhere, I reached out to the 'ham' radio clubs in my area and found several guys with the right testing equipment (signal generator, oscilloscope, etc.) to track the problem and access to their 'tube bank' and many parts I couldn't find myself. Three of them were vying to do the job at the cost of the parts only. It finished well. I did of course manage to find the circuit diagram for my 62-3 hybrid Blaupunkt

I know that Palo Alto Speedometer does some radio repair, but to what extent and which models I do not know. I have no radio repair history nor any affiliation with them. They reworked my speedo and tach.
Please let us know whom you choose and the result of your experience. I will need to get my radio done and will be curious to hear about your experience.

not any more, Hartmut is a great guy and does excellent work, but he bowed out because of the parts situation. Matthias Klaussen is set up to do perfect repairs and restorations on these radios and even makes new parts and has literature for them.

Hernan is close to you
he did my repair (after Matthis restored it, and the extra phone attachment did not work as it was wired incorrectly) for a very reasonable sum $$
he was fast and efficient.

Herman at German Auto Radio Repair did a Blaupunkt radio repair a few years ago for a C coupe for us and it worked great. Not inexpensive, but it was a quick turnaround.

just got in some restored Frankfurts from Matthias, really does some beautiful work. Even has the iPod connector. He rebuilds these all of the time, has all of the parts, and shipping to Germany is not that expensive, plus he has instant turn around.
