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.
Text excerpt from page 9 (click to view)
Bleeding part of the moisture of cooling chambers in form of frost and ice goes with the operation of the appliance. Thick frost and ice has an insulating effect, so it reduces cooling efficiency as the temperature increases in the cooling chambers, they need more energy. At this type of appliance defrosting the cooling surface of the refrigerator is automatic without any external intervention.The thermostatic control interrupts the operation of compressor at regular intervals for more or less time - during this cooling is interrupted - the temperature of the cooling surface goes above 0 Â°C due to interior heating load of the compartment, so defrosting occurs. When the surface temperature of the cooling surface has reached +3 - +4 Â°C the thermostatic control restarts operation of the system. Melting water flows through defrost water outlet leaded through the back into the evaporator tray maintained on the top of compressor and evaporates due to its warmth. Check and clean the outlet of melting water coming during defrosting regularly a label inside the appliance warns you for this. If it is clogged the melting water gathered can cause earlier failure as it can go to the insulating of the appliance. Clean the melting water outlet with the supplied pipe scraper that can be seen in the figure. The pipe scraper has to be stored in the outlet. The most typical case of clogging up in the melting water outlet when you put food wrapped in some paper into the appliance and this paper contacts back plate of the refrigerator and freezes to it. If you remove the food right at this moment the paper will tear and it can cause clogging up in the outlet by getting into it. So you are asked to be careful - because of the above - when placing foods wrapped in paper into the appliance. In case of increased demand e.g. during heatwaves, the refrigerator temporarily happens to operate constantly - during this the automatic defrosting does not work. Remaining small ice and frost stains on back plate of the refrigerator after defrosting period is not abnormal. The freezer can not be equipped with automatic defrosting set since the deep-frozen and frozen foods do not endure melting temperature. When small frost and ice occurs scrape off and remove frost and ice coating with the supplied plastic scraper. When ice coating is so thick that it cannot be removed with the plastic scraper, the cooling gill have to be defrosted. Frequency of defrosting depends on usage 9
