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.

Uses, tables and tips
The better the pan, the better the results. â¢ You can recognise good pans by their bases. The base should be as thick and flat as possible. â¢ Pay particular attention when buying new pans to the diameter of the base. Manufacturers often give only the diameter of the upper rim. â¢ Pots with aluminium or copper bases can cause metallic discolouring on the ceramic glass surface, which is very difficult or impossible to remove. â¢ Do not use cast iron pans or pans with a rough, burred or damaged base. This can produce permanent scratching if the pan is slid across the surface. â¢ When cold, pan bases are normally bowed slightly inwards (concave). They should never be bowed outwards (convex). â¢ If you wish to use special types of pan (e.g. a pressure cooker, simmering pan, wok, etc.), please observe the manufacturer's instructions.
Energy saving tips You can save valuable energy by observing the following points: â¢ Always position pots and pans before switching on the cooking zone. â¢ Dirty cooking zones and pan bases increase power consumption. â¢ Whenever possible always position the lids firmly on pots and pans to cover completely. â¢ Switch off the cooking zones before the end of the cooking time to use the residual heat such as to keep foods warm or for melting. â¢ The base of the pan should be the same size as the cooking zone. â¢ Using a pressure cooker reduces cooking times by up to 50%.
