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 Unleaded solder connections. Check the entire board surface for solder splashes Boards requiring use of unleaded solder are printed with the lead- and bridges. free mark (LF) indicating the solder contains no lead. 2. Check the interboard wiring to ensure that no wires are (Caution: Some printed circuit boards may not come printed with the lead free mark due to their particular size.) "pinched" or contact high-wattage resistors. 3. Look for unauthorized replacement parts, particularly transistors, that were installed during a previous repair. Point : LEAD FREE MARK them out to the customer and recommend their replacement. Unleaded solder has the following characteristics. 4. Look for parts which, through functioning, show obvious signs • Unleaded solder melts at a temperature about 40°C higher than of deterioration. Point them out to the customer and ordinary solder. recommend their replacement. Ordinary soldering irons can be used but the iron tip has to be applied to the solder joint for a slightly longer time. 5. Check the B+ voltage to see it is at the values specified.
