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.

Replacing the power supply lead
If the lead has to be replaced, only HO5RR-F or HO5RN-F type cables suitable for the load and the operating temperature must be used.In addition, the yellow/green earth wire must be about 2 cm longer than the live and neutral wires. In all cases, the power supply lead must be positioned so that it does not reach a temperature 50Â°C above the room temperature in any point. One example of an ideal route is shown in the illustration.The cable is guided by means of band clamps fixed to the side of the cabinet, in order to avoid any contact with the appliance underneath the hob.
Adapting to the different types of gas
Changing the nozzles
1) Remove the pan stands 2) Remove the burner caps and flame caps from the burners. 3) Use a size 7 socket wrench to unscrew and remove the nozzles, replacing them with those corresponding to the type of gas to be used (see table). 4) Reassemble the parts, reversing the operations described above. 5) Then replace the setting data plate (close to the mains gas connection) with the one for the new type of gas (it is in the bag of nozzles provided). If the pressure of the gas used is different from that specified (or variable), a suitable piped gas pressure regulator complying with the standard must be installed on the supply pipeline.
Setting the minimum level
1) Light the burner as already described. 2) Turn the tap to the minimum flame position. 3) Remove the control knobs. 4) Use a thin straight screwdriver to turn the by-pass pin located next to the tap rod (see fig. A).If you are converting from natural gas to LPG, turn the by-pass pin fully clockwise. The result should be a small, homogeneous flame which is uniform around the entire burner ring. 5) Finally, check that the burner does not go out when the tap is turned quickly from the maximum to the minimum position.
