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.

HINTS AND TIPS
DEEP FAT FRYING
SPECIAL FRYING NOTE: For safety purposes when deep fat frying, fill the pan one-third full of oil, DO NOT cover the pan with a lid and DO NOT leave the pan unattended. In the unfortunate event of a fire, switch the cooker OFF at the electricity supply and cover the pan with a lid or damp cloth to assist in smothering the flames. DO NOT use water on the fire. Leave the pan to cool for at least 30 minutes before moving it. DO NOT leave the fat or oil in the frying pan on the hob to store it in case the hob is inadvertently switched ON. 1. Preparing the food Seal the food by coating with flour, egg and breadcrumbs or batter. Do not use a basket with batter coated foods as they will stick. 2. Amount of oil For safety purposes fill the pan only one-third full of oil. 3. Testing the temperature of the oil It is advisable to use a thermometer to test the temperature of the oil. Alternatively, drop a small cube of bread into the oil which should brown in just under a minute if the oil is at the correct temperature of 190Â°C/375Â°F. 4. Cooking the food Lower the food gently into the oil. Do not add too much food at once or the temperature of the oil will be reduced and may result in soggy, greasy food. Turn the food if necessary; doughnuts float to the surface so will not brown on the upperside if not turned. Once cooked, drain the food on absorbent paper. 5. Double frying chips Double frying will ensure good chips. First fry the chips for a few minutes at 170Â°C/340Â°F to seal the outside. Remove the chips from the oil. Increase the cooking and brown the chips. Chips may be kept for several hours after the first frying before finishing off with the second frying.

Lift, rather than slide saucepans on and off the heated areas. This will reduce the risk of scratches and metal marks from saucepans with aluminium bases. Metal marks can be easily cleaned off providing they are not allowed to burn on.
Follow any guidelines provided by the saucepan manufacturer, particularly those relating to recommended heat settings. Avoid using thin badly dented or distorted saucepans. Those with uneven bases should not be used.
To prolong the life of hotplates:-
l Never use utensils with a skirt, e.g. a bucket. l Never use an asbestos mat. l Never leave the hotplates ON when not covered
with a saucepan.

Ensure that hob and saucepans are clean and dry before the start of cooking to reduce cleaning. Follow the cleaning instructions very closely to keep the hob looking like new. If spillage occurs with sugar solutions, e.g. jams and syrups, it must be wiped from the hob before it sets and becomes hard otherwise damage to the hob will occur.

HOT HOB INDICATOR
The ceramic hob is fitted with a hot hob indicator light which illuminates when the hob is too hot to touch. The light will go OFF when the hob has cooled.
