VFD cool green oven clock

VFD cool green oven clock

This time is at my friends house in Andover and is looking a bit worse for wear but still bright to see very well!

I prefer these larger cool green VFD clock displays or any numerical display than the smaller dotty ones with the washed out blue colour like you see on VCRS

Better than both blue and red displays (alarm clocks). My alarm clock has a more lime-green color but this looks better!

I love this cool green display so much! It would look sexy on a synthesiser numerical module or a recording room's mixing desk modules too

Older digital microwaves like the former Panasonic one in my house had a cool green timer display and I loved it so much but unfortunately it had a minor fault but still worked for full power cooking. Still the fault led to my parents throwing away this microwave and got another Panasonic Inverter microwave which had an LCD screen but had the appearance of an LED display. Only thing is is standard lime green.

Two of my friends houses I go to have both VFD oven clock displays like this one here plus my cousin's new house

Another thing is that I've seen fairly large blue LED digital segmented clocks in my uni but they are so hard to read in the distance and most LEDS backlighting the segment numbers are failing therefore giving false number for example a 7 will look 1 for sure or a 6 looking like 5 what an eyesore

I remember 1990s Panasonic VCRs had a cool green VFD like the one pictured behind an amber plasic lens to give it a yellow colour.

Also my car has three VFD displays that have the same above cool green displays but behind a reddish coloured plastic to give it a white appearance as seen HERE

I'd love to have a VCR with such display The oldest VCR I can remember was the Pioneer which had VFD for sure. Then when it stopped working or probably had a minor fault, my dad got a Sharp VCR which to my distaste had a passive black digit LCD display with no backlighting but fortunately when it again crapped up due to the VHS cassette tape clogging up the mechanics, a Toshiba VCR with a DVD player built in replaced it and to my absolute delight it had a lime green LED display. Thats not all, when we got our summer house in the I.O.W we took the Toshiba VCR for the TV set there and a TEVION (ALDI electronics) DVD player was installed which was so awful as it recorded DVD blank discs with shoddy quality until in 2009 we got what we have now which is a Panasonic VCR and DVD player with an additional internal HDD. The HDD recording option was the best thing ever as it meant no more buying tapes or blank discs for recording TV programmes. The Panasonic player has got the VFD display

My mother have a VCR/DVD multifunction player, Panasonic as well I think. But I don't think if it have an internal HDD. I don't remember which display it contains.

I"m don't speak english well, and rely on online translating to write in this site.
Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I hope that LED won't replace all forms of other lighting.

I remember those Sharp VCRs with a LCD display though ours was green LED backlit. I remember the VCR was silver and my brother was only 2 years old stuffed a toy car in it. The video-in icon on the LCD display animates when the video cassette is playing, rewinding, fast-forward or recording. Before that we had a Sony VCR which had a VFD and many LEDs on it.

Right now my parents have a Panasonic DVD player/hard disk recorder that has a dark LCD display that reminds me of a VFD display. I'll get a picture the next time I see my parents.

Ours was silver just like yours oh the glory of using VHS tapes. I really enjoyed using them to watch my cartoons and record whatever I wanted from TV programmes. I found a VHS tape that contained mid 2000s ITV adverts and Coronation Street (English soap TV series)

The 2000s had some really quality stuff on. We had a soap police TV series called The Bill and no current police/detective TV series can match its iconic style. Pity The Bill stopped in 2010. Anyhow back to the VCR um I don't think ours had a backlit display, in fact I wasn't a fan of that Sharp VCR so excuse my sketchy memory. I don't know if the VCR had a seperate red LED or a small "REC" displayed in black on the panel when the VCR was on record mode.

This now makes me think that back in the 2000s whenever the VCR was in record usage from my dad, it was a bit of wait for me to use it. Nowadays it is no problem for me because of my laptop, phone etc.

Funny thing is we get regular repeats of The Bill here, especially the older episodes and I love watching it. Nothing beats a good British show. Actually I think I have the VCR in my garage to this day as it still worked fine once the toy car was removed.

Same with us indeed many people think that our British shows are the best. A Chinese friend of mine said she preferred British TV shows over Chinese ones

The toy car can't have done too much damage apart from jamming the darn thing I played with the old Sharp VCR and I managed to take the back cover off and the jammed VHS tape. TBH it could have worked but knowing the sort of issues where VCRS can jam the VHS tape but I liked the replacement Toshiba much more
