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.

Temperature memory The temperature memory shows when an alarm has been triggered in the cabinet. The temperature memory operates as follows: When the temperature inside the freezer again falls below -11Â°C the audible alarm stops. The temperature display and the red warning lamp will flash to indicate than an alarm was triggered. When the alarm shut-off button is pressed, the display then displays the warmest temperature inside the cabinet during the alarm phase and the display stops flashing. By referring to the temperature display indication, it is possible to decide whether or not to discard the products inside the freezer. At about -12Â°C: Most food products can be immediately re-frozen. Ice cream is especially sensitive to temperature changes and should be consumed as soon as possible. At -9Â° -- -2Â°C: Food products should be prepared (cooked) prior to eating or re-freezing them.
You need not press the fast-freezing button when freezing smaller quantities of food during any 24-hour period. In all other cases, press the fast-freezing button approx. 24 hours prior to placing the food in the freezer. Fast-freezing is automatically switched of 48 hours after the button has been pressed. Fast-freezing can be discontinued by pressing the fast-freezing button once again. The yellow fast-freezing lamp remains lit as long as the fast-freezing button is engaged. A" (ACTION FREEZE) is displayed in the temperature display. Practical advice on freezing Â· When freezing products, use the top shelf, and if necessary the shelf beneth as this is the coldest part. . Â· When freezing large amounts of food/provisions, the accumulator moves to the tray/space nearest to the lower freezing shelf. - Place the foods directly on the freezer shelves. Â· Spread out the products as much as possible to allow air to circulate between them. Â· Do not place food products which are to be frozen directly against other frozen food. The heat from the unfrozen food may cause the frozen food to thaw on the surface. Â· Once frozen, re-arrange the products and put them as close as possible to each other. The food will then stay cold longer in the event of a power failure.
Check that the cabinet is operating and keeps the set temperature one day after switching it on for the first time. Only after then should the freezer be used to freeze fresh foodstuff.
