It is possible that a wire is snapped. Do not insert the cable insufficiently nor crookedly. When installing a connector, don’t press down at wire of connector. It is possible that a wire is snapped. Cut and remove the part of gilt which comes off at the point. (Be careful or some pieces of gilt may be left inside) [Discharging of the DD-158 board’s charging capacitor (C506)] Discharging the Capacitor Short-circuit between the positive and the negative terminals of The charging capacitor (C506) of the DD-158 board is charged up charged capacitor with the short jig about 10 seconds. to the maximum 300 V potential. There is a danger of electric shock by this high voltage when the battery is handled by hand. The electric shock is caused by the R:1 kΩ/1 W charged voltage which is kept without discharging when the main (Part code: 1-215-869-11) power of the unit is simply turned off. Therefore, the remaining voltage must be discharged as described below. Preparing the Short Jig Capacitor 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 pre- vent electrical shock. 1 kΩ/1 W Wrap insulating tape. – 4 –, [Description on Self-diagnosis Display] Self-diagnosis display • C: ss: ss You can reverse the camera mal- function yourself.
