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.

SELF-DIAGNOSIS FUNCTION

• 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-T3 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.
