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 4. Look for parts which, through functioning, show obvious signs connections. Check the entire board surface for solder splashes of deterioration. Point them out to the customer and and bridges. recommend their replacement. 2. Check the interboard wiring to ensure that no wires are 5. Check the B+ voltage to see it is at the values specified. "pinched" or contact high-wattage resistors. 6. Flexible Circuit Board Repairing 3. Look for unauthorized replacement parts, particularly • Keep the temperature of the soldering iron around 270˚C transistors, that were installed during a previous repair.

• NOTE FOR REPAIR Make sure that the flat cable and flexible board are not cracked of When remove a connector, don't pull at wire of connector. bent at the terminal. Be in danger of the snapping of a wire. Do not insert the cable insufficiently nor crookedly. When installing a connector, don't press down at wire of connector. Be in danger of the snapping of a wire. Cut and remove the part of gilt which comes off at the point. (Take care that there are some pieces of gilt left inside) [Discharging of the FLASH unit’s charging capacitor] The charging capacitor of the FLASH unit is charged up to the maximum 300 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 discharging when the main power of the DSC-M1 is simply turned off. Therefore, the remaining voltage must be discharged as described below. Preparing the Short Jig 1 kΩ/1 W To preparing the short jig. a small clip is attached to each end of a resistor of 1 kΩ /1 W (1-215-869-11) Wrap insulating tape fully around the leads of the resistor to prevent electrical shock. Wrap insulating tape. Discharging the Capacitor Short circuits between the positive and the negative terminals of charged capacitor with the short jig about 10 seconds. Caution Shorting jig Flash unit (1kΩ / 1w) Capacitor

Image size and quality

You can choose image size (number of Short description of the image size Shooting images pixels) and image quality (compression ratio) based on the kind of images you want to shoot. The image size is shown by the number of pixels (dots) (horizontal × vertical), which compose an image. For example, a 5M (2592×1944) size image indicates that there are 2592 pixels horizontally and 1944 pixels vertically. The larger the number of pixels, the larger the image size. You can select from Fine (high quality) or Standard image quality. Each uses a different compression ratio. When you select Fine, the image quality improves as the image size increases, but the amount of recorded data also increases and the number of images that can be recorded on a “Memory Stick Duo” decreases. Refer to the table on the right and choose the image size and image quality appropriate to the kind of images you want to shoot. The following illustration shows a brief image using the maximum image size and the minimum one. 2592 Image size 640 5M 5M 2592 pixels × 1944 pixels=5,038,848 pixels Image size: VGA VGA 640 pixels × 480 pixels=307,200 pixels
