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.
Text excerpt from page 19 (click to view)
â¢ Place a bowl on the floor to collect any spillage. â¢ Pull out the emergency emptying hose, place it in the bowl and remove its cap. â¢ When no more water comes out, unscrew the pump cover and remove it.
7. Frost precautions
If the machine is installed in a place where the temperature could drop below 0Â°C, proceed as follows: â¢ Remove the plug from the socket. â¢ Close the water tap and unscrew the water inlet hose from the tap. â¢ Place the end of the emergency emptying hose and that of the inlet hose in a bowl placed on the floor and let water drain out. â¢ Screw the water inlet hose back on and reposition the emergency emptying hose after having put the cap on again.
â¢ Remove any objects from the pump impeller by rotating it. â¢ Put the cap back on the emergency emptying hose and place the latter back in its seat.
By doing this, any water remaining in the machine is removed, avoiding the formation of ice and, consequently, breakage of the affected parts. When you use the machine again, make sure that the ambient temperature is above 0Â°C. Important! Every time you drain the water through the emergency emptying hose you must pour 2 litres of water into the main wash compartment of the detergent drawer and then run the drain programme. This will activate the ECO valve avoiding that part of the detergent remains unused at next washing.
â¢ Screw the pump cover fully in. â¢ Close the pump door.
6. Emergency emptying out
If the water is not discharged, proceed as follows to empty out the machine: â¢ pull out the plug from the power socket; â¢ close the water tap; â¢ if necessary, wait until the water has cooled down; â¢ open the pump door; â¢ place a bowl on the floor and place the end of the emergency emptying hose into the bowl. Remove its cap. The water should drain by gravity into the bowl. When the bowl is full, put the cap back on the hose. Empty the bowl. Repeat the procedure until water stops flowing out; â¢ clean the pump if necessary as previously described; â¢ replace the emergency emptying hose in its seat after having plugged it; â¢ screw the pump cover again and close the door.
