SAFETY PRECAUTIONS \

The following precautions should be observed when servicing.

1t Since many parts in the unit have special safety related characteristics. always use genuine replacement
parts. Especially critical parts in the power circuit block should not be replaced with any substitutes. Critical
parts are marked with A in the schematic diagram and circuit board diagram.

2‘ Before returning a repaired unit to the customer. the service technician must thoroughly test the unit to
ascertain that it is completely safe to Operate without danger of electrical shock.

CAUTIONS REGARDING HANDLING OF THE LASER

This device uses an invisible (near-infrared) laser to pick up signals recorded on the disc. Laser radiation does
not leak from the unit during normal operation However when the top cover is removed care must be taken
to avoid looking directly at the beam emitted by the laser. The laser’ 5 maximum rated power output from the
lens Is 0. 4mW However, when this' Is focused the power reaches 1. 3 x 10‘ mW/cm. Beside the laser diode,
the pickup ass' y contains optical components such as the beam splitter, and lens, etc., as well as a 6-way
photo diode, and is precisely constructed. Please do not disassemble the pickup ass'y as the optical compo—
nents are very easily damaged by dust and dirt and the laser diode contains dangerous substances.

Check that exposed parts are properly insulated from
the supply circuit before returning the instrument
repaired to the customer.

' Checking method
Power switch is set to ON.
Next, measure the resistance value between both
poles at the AC power supply plug, and the outside,
ground connection of the RCA jacks on the rear
panel. The resistance value must be 500 kit or more.
