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.

HEALTH AND SAFETY GUIDELINES
Because of consumer demand, preservatives have been removed from many pre-prepared foods. This together with the changes in shopping habits to a once-a-week shop, mean that safe handling and storage of food is even more important than ever. The following tips should help you to ensure that the food in your home is in as perfect condition as possible. â Keep the time between buying chilled food and placing it in your freezer as short as possible. Tests showed that the temperature of 1 litre of orange juice rose to 22Â°C in an hour between the supermarket and home. It then took 11 hours to get down to 7Â°C in the refrigerator. â Keep the freezer door closed as much as possible. Remember that warm air is ï¬owing in as you are deciding what to have for tea! â Do not push food together too much, try to allow air circulate around each item. â Cool cooked food as quickly as possible but do NOT place in the freezer until cool. (Leave food in a place as cool as possible in order that it can then be placed in the freezer as soon as possible). â Do not store food uncovered. â The best way to defrost food is to put it in the refrigerator to thaw slowly. â Ensure that food placed in the freezer is dated and labelled and used in date order to ensure that food is consumed at its best. â It is important that food is used before its âbest beforeâ date. â Always wash your hands with soapy water and dry them with a clean towel before handling food. â Keep work surfaces clean and avoid cross contamination by not using the same work surface or knife, without washing them thoroughly in between. â Use kitchen roll wherever possible for cleaning up food. If you use a dishcloth, be sure to boil it frequently.
