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.
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.
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.
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.

1. SERVICE  NOTE
1-1.  POWER SUPPLY DURING REPAIRS
In this unit, about 10 seconds after power is supplied to the battery terminal using the regulated power supply (8.4 V), the power is shut off 
so that the unit cannot operate.
These following method is available to prevent this.
Method:
Use the AC power adaptor.
1-2.  PRECAUTION ON REPLACING THE VC-648 BOARD
Turn on the set and establish a USB connection , save the USB serial data before replacing the board.
DESTINATION DATA
When you replace to the repairing board, the written destination data of repairing board also might be changed to original setting.
Start the Adjust Manual in the Adjust Station and execute the “DESTINATION DATA WRITE”.
After the board replacement, the error of the built-in recording media may be displayed.
In this case, execute the [DESTINATION DATA WRITE] then the error will be cleared.
If it is not cleared with [DESTINATION DATA WRITE], format the built-in recording media.
USB SERIAL SAVE
When you replace to the repairing board, get the data from the former one.
Start the Adjust Manual in the Adjust Station and perform “USB SERIAL SAVE” to get the data.
USB SERIAL No.
The set is shipped with a unique ID (USB Serial No.) written in it.
This ID has not been written in a new board for service, and therefore it must be entered after the board replacement.
Start the Adjust Manual in the Adjust Station and execute the “USB SERIAL No. INPUT”.
1-3. SELF-DIAGNOSIS FUNCTION
1-3-1. Self-diagnosis Function
When problems occur while the unit is operating, the self-diagnosis func-
tion starts working, and displays on the LCD screen what to do.
This function consists of two display; self-diagnosis display and service 
mode display. Details of the self-diagnosis functions are provided in the 
Instruction manual.
1-3-2. Self-diagnosis Display
When problems occur while the unit is operating, the counter of the LCD 
screen shows a 4-digit display consisting of an alphabet and numbers,
which blinks at 3.2 Hz. This 5-character display indicates the “repaired 
by:”, “block” in which the problem occurred, and “detailed code”of the 
problem.
