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 COMPO-
NENTS WITH SONY PARTS WHOSE PART NUMBERS APPEAR AS 
SHOWN IN THIS MANUAL OR IN SUPPLEMENTS PUBLISHED BY 
SONY. 
ATTENTION AU  COMPOSANT  AYANT  RAPPORT 
À  LA  SÉCURITÉ!
LES COMPOSANTS IDENTIFIÉS PAR UNE MARQUE 0 SUR LES 
DIAGRAMMES SCHÉMATIQUES ET LA LISTE DES PIÈCES SONT 
CRITIQUES POUR LA SÉCURITÉ DE FONCTIONNEMENT. NE REM-
PLACER CES COMPOSANTS QUE PAR DES PIÈCES SONY DONT 
LES NUMÉROS SONT DONNÉS DANS CE MANUEL OU DANS LES 
SUPPLÉMENTS PUBLIÉS PAR SONY.
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, through 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.
6.  Flexible Circuit Board Repairing
 
•   Keep the temperature of the soldering iron around 350°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.
Caution
Danger of explosion occurs if battery is incorrectly replaced.
Replace only with the same or equivalent type.
Dispose of used batteries according to the instructions.
UNLEADED  SOLDER
This unit uses 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
Be careful to the following points to solder or unsolder.
•  Set the soldering iron tip temperature to 350°C approximately.
 
If cannot control temperature, solder/unsolder at high temperature 
for a short time.
 
Caution: The printed pattern (copper foil) may peel away if the 
heated tip is applied for too long, so be careful!
 
 
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.
•  Be sure to control soldering iron tips used for unleaded solder and 
those for leaded solder so they are managed separately. Mixing un-
leaded solder and leaded solder will cause detachment phenomenon.
注意
如果电池更换不当会有爆炸危险。
只能用同样类型或等效类型的电池来更换。
务必按照说明处置用完的电池。

METHOD FOR COPYING OR ERASING THE DATA IN INTERNAL MEMORY
The data can be copied/erased by the operations on the Setup screen. (When erasing the data, execute formatting the internal memory.) 
Note1:  When replacing the Main Board Assy, erase the data in internal memory of main board before replacement.
Note2:  When replacing the Main Board Assy, execute formatting and initialize the internal memory after replacement.

DEDICATED A/V CABLE (OPTIONAL ACCESSORY)
Dedicated A/V cable is not supplied with this model.
For details of the dedicated A/V cable, refer to the “ACCESSORIES” page.
Method for Formatting the Internal Memory
Format
Formats the memory card or the internal memory.
When you use a memory card with this camera for the first time, it is recommended to format the card
using the camera for stable performance of the memory card before shooting. Note that formatting
permanently erases all data on the memory card, and is unrecoverable. Save precious data on a
computer, etc.
1.  MENU 
 
 (Settings) 
 
 (Memory Card Tool) or 
 (Internal Memory Tool) 
 [Format] 
 [OK] 
 
Notes
Note that formatting permanently erases all data including even protected images.
Copy
Copies all images in the internal memory to a memory card.
1.  Insert a memory card with sufficient free capacity into the camera.
2.  MENU 
 
 (Settings) 
 
 (Memory Card Tool) 
 [Copy] 
 [OK] 
 
Notes
Make sure there is sufficient battery power. Otherwise, the battery power may run out when you
attempt to copy image files, causing the copy to fail and possibly corrupt the data.
Images cannot be copied individually.
The original images in the internal memory are retained even after copying. To delete the contents
of the internal memory, remove the memory card after copying, then format the internal memory
([Format] in [Internal Memory Tool]).
A new folder is created on the memory card and all the data will be copied to it. You cannot choose
a specific folder and copy images to it.

OK 
(The flexible board was plugged in straight 
and completely)

•  Make sure that the flat cable and flexible board are not cracked 
or bent at the contact end.
•  Do not apply excessive force to the gilded flexible board.
Cut and remove the part of gilt
which comes off at the point.
(Be careful or some
pieces of gilt may be left inside)
•  The proper way to disconnect a connector is to grab the con-
nector instead of the wires.  If you pull on the wires, they might 
be broken.
•  The proper way to connect a connector is to grab the connector 
instead of the wires.  If you push on the wires, they might be 
broken.
The charging capacitor is charged up to the maximum 310 V
potential.
There is a danger of electric shock by this high voltage 
when the capacitor is handled by hand.  The electric shock 
is caused by the charged voltage which is kept without dis-
charging when the main power of the unit is simply turned 
off.  Therefore, the remaining voltage must be discharged as 
described below.
Preparing the Short Jig
To preparing the short jig, a small clip is attached to each end 
of a resistor of 1 k
Ω /1 W (1-215-869-11).
Wrap insulating tape fully around the leads of the resistor to 
prevent electrical shock.
