Thanks so much for the Owner's manual for my Sony PS - FL1. I had purchased the turntable off of eBay. It came in and looked great. Packed well and appeared to be great. I balanced and aligned the tone are and hooked it up. When trying to play a record the tone are would move to the right place and just before it would drop to play it moved back off the edge of the record before touching down. I searched the net for an answer to this issue. No luck. Then I purchased the owners manual and sure enough there was a place to adjust where the stylus touched down. That adjustment solved the problem and saved me a $35 feet to have the player checked out. The manual is well written and easy to understand. It is a must have for anyone with this front loading Sony turntable.
Some years back I pruchased a Sansui G-9000. I had it cleaned up and a problem with the left channel repaired. When I got it back I hooked it up to my tape decks, turn tables, TV and it played great. The only thing I was not really satisfied with was the performance of my Graphic Equalizer. I purchased this owner's manual had poured myself a cup of coffee. The manual is well organized and written in plain language. It also contained the solution to my dissatisfaction. By using the preamp connections coupled I was able to run everything through my graphic equalizer and now enjoy the full potential of my complete system.
An excellent service for the price, however, it would also have been handy if the troubleshooter pages were included. The manual is only sent in the language of your country, thus it looks as though there are some pages missing. Otherwise highly recommended.
I am happy to get a rare TECHNICS SH-9090 Owner's Manual by PDF in clear copy.

HINTS AND TIPS Use the Top oven when you want to warm plates. Use a setting of 80Â°C - 100Â°C on the oven temperature control. You can use both shelves when using the fan assisted oven. There should always be at least 2.5cm (1") between the top of the food and the grill element. This gives best cooking results and allows room for rise in yeast mixtures, Yorkshire puddings etc. When cooking cakes, pastry, scones bread etc., place the tins or baking trays centrally on the shelf.
Ensure that food is placed centrally on the shelf and there is sufficient room around the baking tray or dish to allow for maximum circulation. Where a degree of evenness in baking is required, it may be necessary to interchange food during cooking. Where a larger quantity of food is to be cooked we recommend you use the main oven. Place dishes on a suitably sized baking tray on the shelf to prevent spillage onto the oven base and to help reduce cleaning. The material and finish of the baking tray and dishes will affect the degree of base browning of the food. Enamelware, dark, heavy or non-stick utensils increase base browning. Shiny aluminium or polished steel trays reflect the heat away and give less base browning. For economy leave the door open for the shortest possible time, particularly when placing food into a pre-heated oven. Do not use the grill pan or meat tin as a baking tray as this will increase base browning of the food. Because of the smaller cooking space and lower temperatures, shorter cooking times are sometimes required. Be guided by the recommendations in the cooking chart.
