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

Caution
Danger of explosion 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.
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
 
•   Set the soldering iron tip temperature to 350 °C approximately.
 
•   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.
