NOTES  ON  CHIP  COMPONENT  REPLACEMENT
•  Never reuse a disconnected chip component.
•  Notice that the minus side of a tantalum capacitor may be dam-
aged by heat.
NOTES  ON  HANDLING  THE  OPTICAL  PICK-UP  
BLOCK  OR  BASE  UNIT
The laser diode in the optical pick-up block may suffer electro-
static 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 fl exible 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 refl ective surface by the objective lens in the optical 
pickup block. Therefore, when checking the laser diode emission, 
observe from more than 30 cm away from the objective lens.
CAUTION
Use of controls or adjustments or performance of procedures 
other than those specifi ed herein may result in hazardous radia-
tion exposure.
If the optical pick-up block is defective, please replace the whole 
optical pick-up block.
Never turn the semi-fi xed resistor located at the side of optical 
pick-up block.
TEST  DISCS
Please use the following test discs for the check on the CD section.

TABLE  OF  CONTENTS
UNLEADED  SOLDER
Boards requiring use of unleaded solder are printed with the lead-
free 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)
 : LEAD  FREE  MARK
Unleaded solder has the following characteristics.
•  Unleaded solder melts at a temperature about 40 °C 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 350 °C.
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 fl ow) 
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.
Except US, Canadian model:
This label is located on the bottom of the chassis.

SERVICE  NOTE
EXTENSION  CABLE  AND  SERVICE  POSITION
When repairing or servicing this set, connect the jig (extension 
cable) as shown below.
•  Connect the MAIN board (CN701) and the SERVO board 
(CN401) with the extension cable (Part No. J-2502-076-1).
NOTE FOR REPLACEMENT OF THE USB CONNECTOR 
(CN902)
To replace the USB connector requires alignment.
1.  Insert the USB connector into the front panel.
2.  Place the KEY board on the front panel and align the terminals 
of the USB connector with the holes in the KEY board.
3.  Solder the four terminals of the connector.
NOTE  FOR  REPLACEMENT  OF  THE  SERVO  BOARD
When repairing, the complete SERVO board (Part No. A-1768-
001-A) should be replaced since any parts in the SERVO board 
cannot be repaired.
NOTE  FOR  THE  20-PIN  CONNECTOR (CN901)
Do not use alcohol to clean the 20-pin connector (CN901) connect-
ing the front panel with the main body.
Do not touch the connector directly with your bare hand. Poor con-
tact may be caused.
