He may have not known what he was doing but they were called TV repairman and they made house calls. I even remember a doctor coming to my grandmothers house a couple times when I was there. Don't see that anymore in my neck of the woods. Maybe in rural areas.
As a kid I remember when the repairman would run the degausser over the screen - it looked magical to me.
