I am trying to upload pictures for the Marconiphone 702 mirror-lid television receiver but the upload does not start. I have tried on several occasions on different days but have not succeeded. I use the "Uploads & Questions" button on the 702 page, fill in the form and hit "upload" but radiomuseum does not seem to accept my file. What am I doing wrong?

Marconiphone 702

In 1934 the Marconi-EMI Television Company Ltd was formed bringing together the vision transmitter technologies of the Marconi Company with the television studio equipment and receiver technologies of the EMI Company. It was this company that provided the technology for Britain's television service in the years from 1936 through to the switch-off of the 405 line transmissions in the early 1980s.

The very first dedicated television receivers developed by this alliance were the HMV model 901 and the Marconi model 702. These sets were essentially identical but had differences in the veneering of the cabinet and the shape of the speaker grill so as to appeal to traditional customer loyalties for the two brands. The same design of television circuitry was also incorporated into a number of other sets carrying the HMV and Marconi names that included radios and gramophones.

At this time there was only one television channel and one transmitting station. This set is designed with a straight (TRF) vision receiver tuned to 45 MHz. and consists of six RF pentodes and a diode detector. These are contained in seven screening cans. There is no video amplifier. The detector connects directly to the CRT. On the opposite side of the CRT are the synch separator and line and frame timebases and on the floor of the cabinet is the power supply chassis. The 5000 volt supply for the CRT final anode is generated from a step up transformer from the mains and this and the EHT rectifier are located below the timebase chassis in a metal box behind the HT rectifiers. The sound receiver is a superhetrodyne tuned to 41.5MHz and is located between the loud speaker and the CRT. It shares the first two RF stages with the vision receiver and its RF connection is taken between the second and third cans from the top.
