IMPORTANT SERVICE SAFETY INFORMATION

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
Before returning a unit to the customer. always make a safety check of
the entire unit. including. but not limited to the tollowing items:

. Be sure that no built-in protective devices are defective and/or have

been defeated during servicing.

(1) Protective shields are provided to protect both the technician and
the customer. Correctly replace all missing protective shields
including any removed for servicing convenience.

(2) When reinstalling the chassis and/or other assemblies in the
cabinet. he sure t put back in place all protective devices. including.
but not limited to. nonmetallic control knobs. insulating fishpapers.
adjustment and compartment covers/shields and isolation resistor/
capacitor networks. Do not operate this unit or permit it to be
operated without all protective devices correctly installed and
functioning.

. Be sure that there are no cabinet openings through which an adult or

child might be able 'to insert their fingers and contact a hazardous
voltage such openings include. but are not limited to. excessively wide
cabinet ventilation slots. and an improperly titted and/or incorrectly
secured cabinet back cover.

. Leakage CLIrrent Hot Check . With the unit completely reassembled,

plug the A 'Iine cord directly into a 120V AC outlet. (Do not use an
isolation tra stormer during this test.) Use a leakage current tester or a
metering system that complies with American National Standards
institute (ANSI) 0101.1"Leakage current for Appliances." and
Underwriters laboratories (UL) 14104507). With the unit AC switch first
in the ON position and then in the OFF position. measure from a known
earth ground (metal water pipe. conduit. etc.). especially any exposed
metal parts that offer an electrical return path to the chassis. Any
current measured must not exceed 0.5 mitliamp. Reverse the unit power
cord plug in the ,outlet and repeat test. ANY MEASUREMENTS NOT
WITHIN THE LIMITS SPECIFIED HERENIN INDICATE A POTENTIAL
SHOCK HAZARD THAT MUST BE ELIMINATED BEFORE
RETURNING THE UNIT TO THE CUSTOMER.

2. PRODUCT SAFETY NOTICE

Some electrical and mechanical parts have special safety relat-

characteristics which are ohen not evident from visual inspection. r

can the protection they give necessarily be obtained by replacing the

with components rated for higher voltage. wattage. etc.,F'arts th

have special satety characteristics are identified by a A r

schematic and parts list. Use of a substitute replacement that doles n

have the same safety characteristics as the recommends

replacement part might create shock, fire. and/or other hazard

Product safety is under review continuously and new instructions a

issued whenever appropriate.

3. SERVICING PRECAUTIONS

CAUTION"Botore servicing the unit covered by this seNlce manu

and its supplements read and follow the SAFETY PRECAUTIONS c

this page. NOTE"lf unforeseen circumstances create a conflit

between the following servicing precautions and any of the sale
precautions. always follow the safety precautions. Remember: Sale'

First.

General Servicing Precautions.

a. Always unplug the unit‘s AC power cord from the AC power
source before:

(1) removing or reinstalling any component. circuit board. module. or
any other unit assembly.

(2) disconnecting or reconnecting any unit electrical plug or other
electrical connection.

(3) connecting a test substitute in parallel with an electrolytic
capacitor in the unit.

Caution: A wrong part substitution or incorrect polarity installation
of electrolytic capacitors may result in an explosion
hazard.

b. Do not defeat any plug/socket B+ voltage interlocks with which
the unit covered by this service manual might be equipped.

c. Do not apply AC power to this unit and/or any of its electrical
assemblies unless all solid-state device heat sinks are correctly
installed.

d. always connect a test unit instrument's ground lead to the unit's
chassis ground before connecting the test instrument's positive
lead. Always remove the test instruments ground lead last.

4. LASER PRECAUTIONS
WARNING”

1. When servicing. (in case it is necessary to confirm Laser Beam
Emission) be sure not to place your eyes any closer than 1 ft or
30cm (tom the surface of the Detective Lens on the Opticval
Pickup Block.

HANDLING THE LASER PICKUP

2. Laser diodes are extremely susceptible to damage from static
electricity. Even if a static discharge does not ruin the diode. it
can shorten its life or cause it to work improperly. When
replacing the pickup. use a conductive mat on the floor and
desk and Wear a wrist band connected to ground through a 1M
ohm resistor to protect the laser diode from static damage. if
the lens should get dusty. blow off the dust carefully from the
object.

3. There are no adjustable parts in the pickup assembly. If it is
defective. replace the whole pickup assembly.

CAUTION:

USE OF CONTROLS. ADJUSTMENTS OR PERFORMANCE
OF PROCEDURES HEREIN MAY RESULT IN HAZARDOUS
