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.
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.

Â·Remove all securing tapes. Â·Wash the inside of the appliance with lukewarm
water a little bicarbonate of soda added (5ml to 0,5 litre of water). Do not use soap or detergent as the smell maylinger. Dry the appliance thoroughly. Do not use detergents, abrasive powders, highly perfumed cleaning products, wax, polishes or products containing alcohol.
Â·Before inserting the power plug into the outlet and
switching on the cabinet for the first time, leave it standing upright for about 30 minutes, or for 4 hours if it was transported horizontally. Otherwise the compressor may sustain damage. This time will allow the oil sufficient time to return to the compressor.
To start the freezer and thermostat control
1. Plug in the appliance.
Turn the thermostat control to the desired position. 1: The lowest position of the thermostat control results in the highest temperature inside the cabinet. 6: The highest position of the thermostat control results in the lowest temperature inside the cabinet. 0: Off. Allow the cabinet to run for a period of 24 hours whenever the temperature setting is changed. This will allow the temperature to stabilise inside the cabinet.
Set the thermostat control to the "0" position. Unplug the power supply plug from the wall socket or, alternatively, remove the fuse.
