New service hints found on Colorama radios:

Radio Retailings magazine "Service Shortcuts"
G.E. I937 MODELS
Colorama lights burn out.
-insert a 150 ohm resistor in the center-tap of
the high voltage winding, this offsets the high line voltage. Also, a 15
ohm resistor in series with the lamps will increase their life.

G,E. COLOR TUNING
Due to the series wiring of the three
green bulbs, one defective bulb will
cause the system to be inoperative.
When replacing bulbs make sure the
new bulb is of the same current rating.
If the green lights are on constantly
the trouble can usually be traced
to a defective rectifier.
