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.
Text excerpt from page 7 (click to view)
The current level is indicated by the number of flashes made by the 70Â° 80â indicator light, that alternates 5 seconds off with a number of flashes, this for about 60 seconds. Example: 1 flash = 2 flashes = 3 flashes = 4 flashes = 5 flashes =
level 1 level 2 level 3 level 4 level 5
3. To change the level, press the 70Â° 80â programme push button. Each time the push button is pressed the level changes. Example: if the current level is 3, pressing only one time the 70Â° 80â programme push button, level 4 is selected. The 70Â° 80â indicator light remains off for about 5 seconds after which starts flashing indicating the new level selected.
4. To memorise the new level, switch off the dishwasher by pressing the ON-OFF push button.
If your water is level 1 it is already soft and therefore there is no need to use salt. With the setting of the water softener at level 1 the salt indicator light on the control panel will always remain off. Use salt from level 2 upwards. From level 2 upwards, if salt refilling is necessary, the salt indicator light will illuminate only in setting mode and at the end of the washing programme. During the run of the programme it will remain off.
