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.
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.

3. HOW TO DO A WASH ?
Before the first wash in your washing machine, we recommend that you should do a preliminary wash at 90Â°C with detergent but without any washing to clean the tub.
3.4. Choice of the spinning speed
The maximum spin speed is defined as a function of the type of washing and depending on the selected program. However, you can reduce the speed or choose the rinse hold*, drain*, or spinning suppression* positions.
3.1. Loading the washing
â¢ â¢ â¢ Lift the machine cover. Open the drum by pressing on the locking button A; the two flaps automatically separate. Insert the washing, close the drum and the cover of your washing machine. Warning : before you close the cover of your washing machine, make sure that the drum door is properly closed: â¢ the two flaps latched together, â¢ the locking button A extended.
3.5. Choice of the required option
The various options should be chosen after the programme has been displayed and before pressing the Start/Pause pushbutton. Press the required pushbutton(s) ; the corresponding lights come on. When you press again, the lights go off. When one of these options is not compatible with the chosen programme, the corresponding light will flash for a few seconds (see programme table).
3.2. Proportioning of detergents
Your washing machine was designed to reduce water and detergent consumption, therefore reduce the doses recommended by detergent manufacturers. Pour the powder detergent dose into the wash compartment and into the prewash compartment if you chose the Â«prewashÂ» option. Pour in the softener into the compartment if you wish. If you are using a different type of detergent, refer to the Â«detergents and additivesÂ» section in the washing guide.
