SELF-DIAGNOSIS FUNCTION
The self-diagnosis function consists of error codes for customers which are displayed automatically when errors occur, and error codes
which show the error history in the test mode during servicing. For details on how to view error codes for the customer, refer to the
following box  in the instruction manual. For details on how to check error codes during servicing, refer to the following “Procedure for
using the Self-Diagnosis Function (Error History Display Mode)”.
PROCEDURE FOR USING THE SELF-DIAGNOSIS FUNCTION (ERROR HISTORY DISPLAY MODE)
The deck’s self-diagnosis function automatically checks the condition of the MD deck when an error
occurs, then indicates the nature of the error through the two indicators.  If the indicators light up or flash,
find them in the following table and perform the indicated countermeasure.  Should the problem persist,
consult your nearest Sony dealer.

• Never reuse a disconnected chip component.
• Notice that the minus side of a tantalum capacitor may be dam-
aged by heat.
Flexible Circuit Board Repairing
• Keep the temperature of the soldering iron around 270 ˚C dur-
ing repairing.
• 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.

SECTION  1
SERVICING  NOTES
The laser diode in the optical pick-up block may suffer electro-
static break-down because of the potential difference generated
by the charged electrostatic load, etc. on clothing and the human
body.
During repair, pay attention to electrostatic break-down and also
use the procedure in the printed matter which is included in the
repair parts.
The flexible board is easily damaged and should be handled with
care.
NOTES  ON  LASER  DIODE  EMISSION  CHECK
Never look into the laser diode emission from right above when
checking it for adjustment. It is feared that you will lose your sight.
NOTES  ON  HANDLING  THE  OPTICAL  PICK-UP
BLOCK  OR  BASE  UNIT
(Figure A)
CLEANING  OBJECTIVE  LENS  OF  OPTICAL  PICK-UP
• In cleaning the objective lens of optical pick-up, be sure the
following below.
1. In cleaning the lens, do not apply an excessive force.
As the optical pick-up is vulnerable, application of excessive
force could damage the lens holder.
2. In cleaning, do not use a cleaner other than exclusive cleaning
liquid (KK-91 or isopropyl alcohol).
3. Wipe the objective lens spirally from center toward outside.
(See Figure A)
NOTES ON REPLACING BD BOARD OR MD MECHANISM
DECK
In replacing the BD board or MD mechanism deck, perform the
work through the steps provided below:
1. Remove the IC195 from the BD board to be replaced.
2. Remove the IC195 from new BD board.
3. Mount the IC195 on new BD board, which was removed from
the BD board to be replaced.
4. Install new BD board in the set.
Note:
The IC195 cannot be replaced with a new part. If IC195 is faulty,
replace the entire BD board.
IC195
– BD BOARD (Conductor Side) –
4. Eject the disc, if loaded.
5. Disconnect the power cord from the socket to shut off the power
supply.
OPERATION CHECK IN NORMAL MODE
The set alone is capable of performing the play function only. In
checking the recording and other functions, connect the set to the
PC with a USB cable and perform the operation on the application
software “OpenMG Jukebox” attached.

Iop DATA RECORDING AND DISPLAY WHEN OPTICAL PICK-UP AND NON-VOLATILE MEMORY (IC195 OF
BD BOARD) ARE REPLACED
The Iop value labeled on the optical pick-up can be recorded in the non-volatile memory. By recording the value, it will eliminate the need
to look at the value on the optical pick-up label. When replacing the optical pick-up or non-volatile memory (IC195 of BD board), record
the Iop value on the optical pick-up according to the following procedure.
Record Procedure:
1. Press the 
[             ]
 button and 
[         ]
 button until the NetMD indicator turns off (for more than 3 seconds). (During this step, the USB

CHECKS PRIOR TO PARTS REPLACEMENT AND ADJUSTMENTS IN MD
Before performing repairs, perform the following checks to determine the faulty locations up to a certain extent.
Details of the procedures are described in “5. Electrical Adjustments”.
Note:
This set uses optical pick-up KMS-262E in the production, but for the repair, only the KMS-262A is supplied. As a result, two types of optical
pick-ups are used for this set, and the specified values for the check and adjustment of the laser power vary depending on the type.Details of the
identify of KMS-262A/KMS-262E are described in “5-4. How to Identify Optical Pick-up KMS-262A/KMS-262E”. (See Page 26)
Note:
 Optical pick-up of repair parts changed to KMS-262E.
• 0.90 mW power
Specified value : 0.84 to 0.92 mW (KMS-262A)
0.90 to 0.96 mW (KMS-262E)

• Clean the optical pick-up
• Adjust again
• Replace the optical pick-up
• Replace the optical pick-up
• Replace the optical pick-up
• Check for disconnection of the circuits around
