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.

General Instructions â¢ Insert the tray with the bevel at the front. â¢ With TOP BOTTOM or FAN COOKING you can also bake with two tins next to one another on the oven shelf at the same time. This does not significantly increase baking time.
When frozen foods are used the trays inserted may distort during cooking. This is due to the large difference in temperature between the freezing temperature and the temperature in the oven. Once the trays have cooled the distortion will disappear again. How to use the Baking Tables The tables give the required temperature settings, baking times and oven shelf levels for a selection of typical dishes. â¢ Temperatures and baking times are for guidance only, as these will depend on the consistency of pastry, dough or mixture, the amount and the type of baking tin. â¢ We recommend using the lower temperature the first time and then if necessary, for example, if a deeper browning is required, or baking time is too long, selecting a higher temperature. â¢ If you cannot find the settings for a particular recipe, look for the one that is most similar. â¢ If baking cakes on baking trays or in tins on more than one level, baking time may be extended by 10-15 minutes. â¢ Moist recipes (for example, pizzas, fruit flans, etc.) are baked on one level. â¢ Cakes and pastries at different heights may brown at an uneven rate at first. If this occurs, please do not change the temperature setting. Different rates of browning even out as baking progresses.
With longer baking times, the oven can be switched off about 10 minutes before the end of baking time, to make use of the residual heat. Unless otherwise stated, the values given in the tables assume that cooking is started with the oven cold.
