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.

How to Check and Clear Hose Blockages
Low suction or poor pickup may be due to a blockage in the vacuum cleaner. 1. Remove hose and check suction at end of hose - if little or no suction, check disposable dust bag. Change if needed. If no improvement proceed to step 2. NOTE: Turn off the switch and unplug the electrical cord before clearing hose. 2. Disconnect the hose adapter from the unit. Press adapter button on hose adapter and lift up. Check for any obstructions that may be in the hose. Any obstructions can be removed by using a blunt instrument to clear the hose. Flexing the hose may help loosen the clog. 3. Reinstall the hose after clearing the clog. Insert the hose adapter button into the bag compartment tube hole. Lift up on the hose adapter to be sure it is secured. NOTE: If no improvement in performance on carpet, proceed to following page. 1. Remove hose and check suction at end of hose.
