Having purchased a 1994 Kenwood music system from a Charity shop in 2013 (it was a high end product in its day), I found myself not quite knowing where to plug in what, and how to do this, that and the next thing. I needed a Manual, and after failure with another online 'Manual provider' I found Owner Manuals dot com. Well, I wasn't sure, but it was only $5, and if things didn't work out, I wouldn't have lost much...
But things DID work out. After paying my childrens inheritance money, $4.99, I was sent a Manual for my Kenwood System very quickly. Alas, it was in German, and being Scottish, I could not read it or get my system in order from it...a rapid email to them brought the English Manual in short order, and my retro-system was and IS up and running in it's regulation settings.
I am very grateful to http://www.owner-manuals.com for their quick service and for even having such an obsolete Manual in the first place! If you need a Manual for ANYTHING, try here first. I wouldn't be surprised if I bought a 1928 Marconi radio, and got the user Manual for THAT here too!
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.

Pflege und Reinigung
Pflege des GerÃ¤tes
Die Blende und die Bedienteile des GeschirrspÃ¼lers bei Bedarf nur mit einem weichen Lappen und warmem, klarem Wasser reinigen. Achtung! Verwenden Sie auf keinen Fall handelsÃ¼bliche MÃ¶belpflege- oder aggressive Reinigungsmittel. Die SprÃ¼harme brauchen nicht gereinigt zu werden. InnenbehÃ¤lter, TÃ¼rdichtung und Wasserzulauf sollten Sie gelegentlich auf Verschmutzungen kontrollieren und gegebenenfalls reinigen.
Reinigen der Siebe
Die Siebe am Boden des SpÃ¼lraums sind in hohem Grade selbstreinigend. Trotzdem empfiehlt es sich, die Siebe gelegentlich zu kontrollieren und gegebenenfalls zu reinigen. Verschmutzte Siebe beeintrÃ¤chtigen das SpÃ¼lergebnis. Ã TÃ¼r Ã¶ffnen, Unterkorb herausnehmen. Ã Das Siebsystem des GeschirrspÃ¼lers besteht aus 4 Teilen (Grobsieb, Feinsieb, Mikrofilter und FlÃ¤chensieb). Mit dem Griff des Mikrofilters kann das System entriegelt und entnommen werden. Ã Griff etwa um 1/4 Umdrehung entgegen dem Uhrzeigersinn schwenken und herausnehmen.
