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. Point during repairing. them out to the customer and recommend their replacement. • 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. — 3 —,

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-P92 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.

Acceptable batteries HR 15/51:HR6 (size AA) Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries (2) – NH-AA-DA (2) (supplied) – NH-AA-2DA twin-pack (not supplied) R6 (size AA) alkaline batteries (2) Batteries that cannot be used Manganese batteries, lithium batteries, ni- cad batteries If you use the batteries described above, we cannot guarantee full performance of the camera by property of the batteries, such as brownout of the batteries. The battery remaining indicator does not display the correct information. • When alkaline batteries are used, take note of the following information. – There is a big difference in the performance of batteries of different types and of batteries made by different manufacturers. This is especially true in low temperatures, where some batteries are noticeably weaker. You may not be able to shoot in temperatures below 5°C (41°F). – The battery remaining indicator may not display the correct information.

Charging the batteries

, Insert Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries into the battery charger (supplied) with the correct polarity +/–. • You cannot charge alkaline batteries using the battery charger. • Be sure to charge the Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries supplied with your camera before using them. • Connect the battery charger to an easily accessible wall outlet (wall socket) close by. • Even if the CHARGE lamp is not lit, the set is not disconnected from the AC power source (mains) as long as it is connected to the wall outlet (wall socket). If some trouble occurs while using the battery charger, immediately shut off the power by disconnecting the plug from the wall outlet (wall socket). CHARGE lamp to a wall outlet (wall socket) 2 Power cord (mains lead) , Connect the battery charger to a wall outlet (wall socket) using the power cord (mains lead). Charging starts, and the CHARGE lamp lights. When the CHARGE lamp goes out, charging is finished. For details on the battery charger, see page 107. To remove the batteries Press the - end of the battery down in order to raise the + end, then remove the battery. • When charging is finished, disconnect the power cord (mains lead) from the wall outlet (wall socket), and remove the Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries from the battery charger.,
