       After correcting the original service problem, perform the
following safety checks before releasing the set to the customer:
Check the antenna terminals, metal trim, “metallized” knobs, screws,
and all other exposed metal parts for AC leakage. Check leakage as
described below.
LEAKAGE
    The AC leakage from any exposed metal part to earth ground
and from all exposed metal parts to any exposed metal part having
a return to chassis, must not exceed 0.5 mA (500 microamperes).
Leakage current can be measured by any one of three methods.
1.
A commercial leakage tester, such as the Simpson 229 or RCA
WT-540A. Follow the manufacturers’ instructions to use these
instruments.
2.
A battery-operated AC milliammeter. The Data Precision 245
digital multimeter is suitable for this job.
3.
Measuring the voltage drop across a resistor by means of a
VOM or battery-operated AC voltmeter. The “limit” indication
is 0.75 V, so analog meters must have an accurate low-voltage
scale. The Simpson 250 and Sanwa SH-63Trd are examples of
a passive VOM that is suitable. Nearly all battery operated
digital multimeters that have a 2V AC range are suitable. (See
Fig. A)

The release method of a CD disc tray LOCK function
There is a disc lock function for the disc theft prevention for a
demonstration at a shop front in this machine.
Procedue:
1. Press the  ?/1  button to turn the set on.
2. Press two buttons of  x  and  OPEN/CLOSE  simultaneously
for five seconds.
3. The message “LOCKED” is displayed and the tray is locked.
(Even if exiting from this mode, the tray is still locked.)
4. Press two buttons of  x  and  OPEN/CLOSE  simultaneously
for five seconds again.
5. The message “UNLOCKED” is displayed and the tray is
unlocked.
6. To exit from this mode, press the  ?/1  button to turn the set
off.

HCD-GX40
This appliance is classified as a CLASS 1 LASER product. The
CLASS 1 LASER PRODUCT MARKING is located on the rear
exterior.
Laser component in this product is capable
of emitting radiation exceeding the limit for
Class 1.
CAUTION
Use of controls or adjustments or performance of procedures
other than those specified herein may result in hazardous radiation
exposure.
Notes on chip component replacement
• Never reuse a disconnected chip component.
• Notice that the minus side of a tantalum capacitor may be
damaged by heat.
Flexible Circuit Board Repairing
• Keep the temperature of soldering iron around 270˚C
during repairing.
• Do not touch the soldering iron on the same conductor of the
circuit board (within 3 times).
• Be careful not to apply force on the conductor when soldering
or unsoldering.
NOTES  ON  HANDLING  THE  OPTICAL  PICK-UP
BLOCK  OR  BASE  UNIT
The laser diode in the optical pick-up block may suffer electrostatic
break-down because of the potential difference generated by the
charged electrostatic load, etc. on clothing and the human body.
During repair, pay attention to electrostatic break-down and also
use the procedure in the printed matter which is included in the
repair parts.
The flexible board is easily damaged and should be handled with
care.
NOTES  ON  LASER  DIODE  EMISSION  CHECK
The laser beam on this model is concentrated so as to be focused on
the disc reflective surface by the objective lens in the optical pick-
up block. Therefore, when checking the laser diode emission,
observe from more than 30 cm away from the objective lens.
