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.

3. After 24 hours, slide the 'fast freeze' switch back to the left (the yellow light will go out) and transfer the food to the storing compartments. The freezer will return to normal storage temperature. If the 'fast freeze' switch is accidentally left on, the freezer will not be damaged, but energy will be wasted.
F To Make Ice Cubes
1. Fill the ice cube tray 3/4 full with cold water, place in the freezing compartment and leave to freeze. 2. To remove the cubes twist the tray or hold it under running water for a few seconds. Never try to free an ice tray that is frozen to the freezer compartment by using pointed or sharp edged objects.
Frozen Food Storage
When first starting the freezer or if the freezer has been out of use for some time, we advise you to run your appliance for at least 2 hours with the 'fast freeze' switch on before storing frozen food. Do not exceed the storage period indicated by the manufacturer.
Hints & Tips
To obtain the best performance from your freezer: Do not store warm food or evaporating liquid. Avoid buying frozen food if you cannot store it straight away. The use of an insulated container is advisable. When you arrive home, place the frozen food in the freezer immediately. Do not push food together too much, try to allow air to circulate around each item. Do not store food uncovered. Ensure that food placed in the freezer is dated and labelled and used in date order to ensure that food is consumed at its best. Lean food keeps better and longer than fatty food, salt reduces the storage time. Wrap the food in polythene or aluminium freezing bags or foil so that they adhere to the food and provide an airtight seal. Packaging which is swollen or has traces of refrozen water droplets on the pack could indicate that the product has not been kept at a suitable temperature and that it may have lost its original quality. Partially thawed food must not be refrozen, it must be consumed within 24 hours. Never exceed the storage times indicated by the manufacturer.
Do not open the door frequently or leave it open longer than is necessary. Important Do not put carbonated liquids in the freezer. Ice lollies, if consumed immediately after removal from the freezer can cause a low temperature skin burn. Do not remove items from the freezer if your hands are damp/wet, as this could cause skin abrasions or frost/freezer burns. In the event of a power cut the food in the freezer will not be affected if the power cut is short and the freezer is full. Do not open the lid. Should the food begin to thaw it must be consumed quickly and must not be re-frozen. (See Hints and Tips)
Deep frozen or frozen food, prior to being used, can be thawed in a fridge or at room temperature, depending on the time available. Small food items may even be cooked from frozen, in this case cooking will take longer. Any frozen food which is allowed to thaw accidentally should either be eaten as soon as possible, or thrown away. Alternatively, if the food is uncooked and has not been completely defrosted it can be cooked and then refrozen. Defrosted cooked food must never be refrozen.
