SAFETY CHECK-OUT
After correcting the original service problem, perform the following safety checks before releasing the set to the customer: 1. Check the area of your repair for unsoldered or poorly-soldered connections. Check the entire board surface for solder splashes and bridges. 2. Check the interboard wiring to ensure that no wires are "pinched" or contact high-wattage resistors. 3. Look for unauthorized replacement parts, particularly transistors, that were installed during a previous repair. Point them out to the customer and recommend their replacement. 4. Look for parts which, though functioning, show obvious signs of deterioration. Point them out to the customer and recommend their replacement. 5. Check the B+ voltage to see it is at the values specified.

This label is located on the bottom of the unit (AEP, UK, New Zealand, Australian).

MARKING is located on the bottom of the unit (Except E, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Thai).

CAUTION: The use of optical instrument with this product will increase eye hazard. CAUTION Use of controls or adjustments or performance of procedures other than those specified herein may result in hazardous radiation exposure.

WARNING!! WHEN SERVICING, DO NOT APPROACH THE LASER EXIT WITH THE EYE TOO CLOSELY. IN CASE IT IS NECESSARY TO CONFIRM LASER BEAM EMISSION, BE SURE TO OBSERVE FROM A DISTANCE OF MORE THAN 25 cm FROM THE SURFACE OF THE OBJECTIVE LENS ON THE OPTICAL PICK-UP BLOCK. Unleaded solder Boards requiring use of unleaded solder are printed with the leadfree mark (LF) indicating the solder contains no lead. (Caution: Some printed circuit boards may not come printed with the lead free mark due to their particular size.)

SAFETY-RELATED COMPONENT WARNING!! COMPONENTS IDENTIFIED BY MARK 0 OR DOTTED LINE WITH MARK 0 ON THE SCHEMATIC DIAGRAMS AND IN THE PARTS LIST ARE CRITICAL TO SAFE OPERATION. REPLACE THESE COMPONENTS WITH SONY PARTS WHOSE PART NUMBERS APPEAR AS SHOWN IN THIS MANUAL OR IN SUPPLEMENTS PUBLISHED BY SONY.

: LEAD FREE MARK Unleaded solder has the following characteristics. Unleaded solder melts at a temperature about 40C higher than ordinary solder. Ordinary soldering irons can be used but the iron tip has to be applied to the solder joint for a slightly longer time. Soldering irons using a temperature regulator should be set to about 350C. Caution: The printed pattern (copper foil) may peel away if the heated tip is applied for too long, so be careful! Strong viscosity Unleaded solder is more viscous (sticky, less prone to flow) than ordinary solder so use caution not to let solder bridges occur such as on IC pins, etc. Usable with ordinary solder It is best to use only unleaded solder but unleaded solder may also be added to ordinary solder.

You should exercise extreme caution or discontinue use in potentially hazardous situations.

Do not place or drop any object onto the LCD surface. Also, do not apply pressure from hands or elbows. Do not damage the LCD surface with a cutter and sharp cutlery. Do not shut the LCD with the ballpoint etc. put on the disc lid. If the player is brought directly from a cold to a warm location, moisture may condense over the LCD surface. In which case, wipe out the moisture with tissue paper, etc., before use. However, moisture condensation will continue if the LCD surface is cold. Wait until the surface warms to room temperature.

On safety
Should any solid object or liquid fall into the cabinet, unplug the player and have it checked by qualified personnel before operating it any further.

On AC adaptor On operation
If the player is brought directly from a cold to a warm location, or is placed in a very damp room, moisture may condense on the lenses inside the player. Should this occur, the player may not operate properly. In this case, remove the disc and leave the player turned on for about half an hour until the moisture evaporates. When you move the player, take out any discs. If you don't, the disc may be damaged. Keep the lens on the player clean and do not touch it. Touching the lens may damage the lens and cause the player to malfunction. Leave the disc lid closed except when you insert or remove discs. Install this system so that the mains lead can be unplugged from the wall socket immediately in the event of trouble. Use the supplied AC adaptor for this player, as other adaptors may cause a malfunction. Do not confine the AC adaptor in a closed place such as a bookshelf or an AV cabinet. Do not connect the AC adaptor to a traveler's electric transformer, which may generate heat and cause a malfunction.

The battery may not be charged to its fullest capacity when charged for the first time, or when it has not been used for a long time. The capacity recovers after being charged and discharged several times. Do not leave the battery pack in a car or direct sunlight, where temperature goes up above 60 C. Do not expose to water. Avoid short-circuiting the battery connecting jacks (A) located on the bottom of the player and the connecting jacks (C) on the battery pack with metal objects such as a necklace. Make sure dust or sand does not enter the battery connecting jacks (A) and the guide holes (B) located on the bottom of the player, and the connecting jacks (C) and the guide holes (D) on the battery pack.
B Bottom of the player

On power sources
The player is not disconnected from the AC power source (mains) as long as it is connected to the wall outlet, even if the player itself has been turned off.
