CAUTION:  Before  servicing  receivers  covered  by  this  service
manual  and  its  supplements  and  addenda,  read  and  follow  the
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS on page 3 of this publication.
NOTE:  If  unforeseen  circumstances  create  conflict  between  the
following servicing precautions and any of the safety precautions on
page  3  of  this  publication,  always  follow  the  safety  precautions.
Remember: Safety First.
General Servicing Precautions
1.  Always  unplug  the  receiver  AC  power  cord  from  the  AC  power
source before;
a.  Removing  or  reinstalling  any  component,  circuit  board
module or any other receiver assembly.
b.  Disconnecting or reconnecting any receiver electrical plug or
other electrical connection.
c. Connecting  a  test  substitute  in  parallel  with  an  electrolytic
capacitor in the receiver.
CAUTION: A  wrong  part  substitution  or  incorrect  polarity
installation  of  electrolytic  capacitors  may  result  in  an
explosion hazard.
2.  Test high voltage only by measuring it with an appropriate high
voltage  meter  or  other  voltage  measuring  device  (DVM,
FETVOM, etc) equipped with a suitable high voltage probe.
Do not test high voltage by "drawing an arc".
3.  Do  not  spray  chemicals  on  or  near  this  receiver  or  any  of  its
4. Unless  specified  otherwise  in  this  service  manual,  clean
electrical  contacts  only  by  applying  the  following  mixture  to  the
contacts  with  a  pipe  cleaner,  cotton-tipped  stick  or  comparable
non-abrasive applicator; 10% (by volume) Acetone and 90% (by
volume) isopropyl alcohol (90%-99% strength)
CAUTION: This is a flammable mixture.
Unless specified otherwise in this service manual, lubrication of
contacts in not required.
5.  Do not defeat any plug/socket B+ voltage interlocks with which
receivers covered by this service manual might be equipped.
6.  Do  not  apply  AC  power  to  this  instrument  and/or  any  of  its
electrical assemblies unless all solid-state device heat sinks are
correctly installed.
7.  Always  connect  the  test  receiver  ground  lead  to  the  receiver
chassis  ground  before  connecting  the  test  receiver  positive
Always remove the test receiver ground lead last.
8.  Use  with  this  receiver  only  the  test  fixtures  specified  in  this
service manual.
CAUTION: Do  not  connect  the  test  fixture  ground  strap  to  any
heat sink in this receiver.
Electrostatically Sensitive (ES) Devices
Some  semiconductor  (solid-state)  devices  can  be  damaged  easily
by  static  electricity.  Such  components  commonly  are  called
Electrostatically  Sensitive  (ES)  Devices. Examples  of  typical  ES
devices are integrated circuits and some field-effect transistors and
semiconductor  "chip"  components.  The  following  techniques
should  be  used  to  help  reduce  the  incidence  of  component
damage caused by static by static electricity.
1.  Immediately  before  handling  any  semiconductor  component  or
semiconductor-equipped  assembly,  drain  off  any  electrostatic
charge  on  your  body  by  touching  a  known  earth  ground.
Alternatively,  obtain  and  wear  a  commercially  available
discharging  wrist  strap  device,  which  should  be  removed  to
prevent  potential  shock  reasons  prior  to  applying  power  to  the
unit under test.
2.  After  removing  an  electrical  assembly  equipped  with  ES
devices,  place  the  assembly  on  a  conductive  surface  such  as
aluminum  foil,  to  prevent  electrostatic  charge  buildup  or
exposure of the assembly.
3.  Use only a grounded-tip soldering iron to solder or unsolder ES
4. Use only an anti-static type solder removal device. Some solder
removal  devices  not  classified  as  "anti-static"  can  generate
electrical charges sufficient to damage ES devices.
5.  Do  not  use  freon-propelled  chemicals.  These  can  generate
electrical charges sufficient to damage ES devices.
6.  Do  not  remove  a  replacement  ES  device  from  its  protective
package  until  immediately  before  you  are  ready  to  install  it.
(Most  replacement  ES  devices  are  packaged  with  leads
electrically  shorted  together  by  conductive  foam,  aluminum  foil
or comparable conductive material).
7.  Immediately  before  removing  the  protective  material  from  the
leads of a replacement ES device, touch the protective material
to  the  chassis  or  circuit  assembly  into  which  the  device  will  be
CAUTION: Be sure no power is applied to the chassis or circuit,
and observe all other safety precautions.
8.  Minimize  bodily  motions  when  handling  unpackaged
replacement  ES  devices.  (Otherwise  harmless  motion  such  as
the brushing together of your clothes fabric or the lifting  of your
foot  from  a  carpeted  floor  can  generate  static  electricity
sufficient to damage an ES device.)
General Soldering Guidelines
1.  Use a grounded-tip, low-wattage soldering iron and appropriate
tip  size  and  shape  that  will  maintain  tip  temperature  within  the
range or 500
°F to 600°F.
2.  Use an appropriate gauge of RMA resin-core solder composed
of 60 parts tin/40 parts lead.
3.  Keep the soldering iron tip clean and well tinned.
4.  Thoroughly clean the surfaces to be soldered. Use a mall wire-
bristle (0.5 inch, or 1.25cm) brush with a metal handle.
Do not use freon-propelled spray-on cleaners.
5.  Use the following unsoldering technique
a.  Allow the soldering iron tip to reach normal temperature.
°F to 600°F)
b.  Heat the component lead until the solder melts.
c.  Quickly  draw  the  melted  solder  with  an  anti-static,  suction-
type solder removal device or with solder braid.
CAUTION: Work  quickly  to  avoid  overheating  the  circuit
board printed foil.
6.  Use the following soldering technique.
a.  Allow  the  soldering  iron  tip  to  reach  a  normal  temperature
°F to 600°F)
b.  First, hold the soldering iron tip and solder the strand against
the component lead until the solder melts.
Quickly  move  the  soldering  iron  tip  to  the  junction  of  the
component lead and the printed circuit foil, and hold it there
only  until  the  solder  flows  onto  and  around  both  the
component lead and the foil.
CAUTION: Work  quickly  to  avoid  overheating  the  circuit
board printed foil.
Closely  inspect  the  solder  area  and  remove  any  excess  or
splashed solder with a small wire-bristle brush.
