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.

â¢ Splashback (optional) When a splashback is to be fitted, the distance between the hood and the cooking appliances will be determined by the height of the splashback B and whether or not there is a raised back on the worktop. The splashback is to be installed before installing the canopy. If the splashback is to be fixed to the wall using both the top and bottom fixing holes, care must be taken to ensure that the splashback is fitted at the correct height before fixing the base units or at least the worktop covering them. As this is a complex operation, it should only be undertaken by the technician installing the kitchen units or by a competent person who knows the final dimensions of the units. If the splashback is to be fixed through the top fixing holes only, proceed as follows: â¢ Rest the splashback on the worktop and against the wall, as illustrated in fig.2 . â¢ Mark the centres of the two holes in the top surface. â¢ Drill the wall using an 8 mm drill bit, and fix the splashback using the rawl plugs and screws provided. â¢ If necessary, the installer should secure the splashback to the wall by tucking the bottom edge down behind the rear of the worktop. The hood can have two different fixing kits: a) screws, rawl plugs and safety brackets. b) screws, rawl plugs and metal brackets. â¢ Fixing with screws: â¢ Insert the rawl plugs in the holes 1, screw in the two screws provided (4.2 x 44.4) leaving about 5 mm unscrewed, hook the hood to the screws (fig. 3) and continue permanent tightening from the inside (fig. 4). â¢ Mount the safety bracket (provided) above the hood (fig. 5).
