1.
Check the area of your repair for unsoldered or poorly-soldered
connections.  Check the entire board surface for solder splashes
and bridges.
2.
Check the interboard wiring to ensure that no wires are
"pinched" or contact high-wattage resistors.
3.
Look for unauthorized replacement parts, particularly
transistors, that were installed during a previous repair.  Point
them out to the customer and recommend their replacement.
4.
Look for parts which, through functioning, show obvious signs
of deterioration.  Point them out to the customer and
recommend their replacement.
5.
Check the B+ voltage to see it is at the values specified.
6.
Flexible Circuit Board Repairing
• Keep the temperature of the soldering iron around 270˚C
during 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.
Unleaded solder
Boards requiring use of unleaded solder are printed with the lead-
free mark (LF) indicating the solder contains no lead.
(Caution: Some printed circuit boards may not come printed with
the lead free mark due to their particular size.)
 : LEAD FREE MARK
Unleaded solder has the following characteristics.
• Unleaded solder melts at a temperature about 40
°C higher than
ordinary solder.
Ordinary soldering irons can be used but the iron tip has to be
applied to the solder joint for a slightly longer time.
Soldering irons using a temperature regulator should be set to
about 350
°C.
Caution: The printed pattern (copper foil) may peel away if the
heated tip is applied for too long, so be careful!
• Strong viscosity
Unleaded solder is more viscous (sticky, less prone to flow) than
ordinary solder so use caution not to let solder bridges occur such
as on IC pins, etc.
• Usable with ordinary solder
It is best to use only unleaded solder but unleaded solder may
also be added to ordinary solder.
SAFETY CHECK-OUT
After correcting the original service problem, perform the following
safety checks before releasing the set to the customer.

SERVICE NOTE

1-1. SERVICE NOTE
1.
POWER SUPPLY DURING REPAIRS
In this unit, about 10 seconds after power is supplied to the battery terminal using the regulated power supply (8.4V), the power is shut off so
that the unit cannot operate.
These following two methods are available to prevent this. Take note of which to use during repairs.
Method 1:
Use the AC power adaptor (AC-L20, AC-VF50).
Method 2:
Connect the servicing remote commander RM-95 (J-6082-053-B) to the LANC jack, and set the commander switch to the “ADJ” side.
2.
TO TAKE OUT A CASSETTE WHEN NOT EJECT (FORCE EJECT)
1
Refer to 2-3 to remove the cabinet (rear) assembly.
2
Refer to 2-4 to remove the tripod (screw assembly).
3
Refer to 2-5 to remove the cabinet (R) assembly.
4
Refer to 2-7 to remove the FU-161 board, DI-085 board, EVF block.
5
Refer to 2-9 to remove the VC electric heat sheet.
6
Open the cassette lid.
7
Supply +4.5V from the regulated power supply between pins 3, 4 and pins 1, 2 of the flexible board which disconnected from
CN452, and unload the cassette. (Be careful not to short-circuit.)

DISCHARGING OF THE FLASHLIGHT POWER SUPPLY CAPACITOR
The capacitor (C4207) of the flash unit (FL-2960) is charged up to the maximum 300V potential. There is a danger of electric shock by this
high voltage when the flash unit (FL-2960) is handled by hand. The electric shock is caused by the charged voltage which is kept without
discharging when the main power of the unit is simply turned off. Therefore, the remaining voltage must be discharged as described below.
3-1.
PREPARING THE SHORT JIG
To preparing the short jig. a small clip is attached to each end of a resistor of 1k
Ω/1W (1-215-869-11). Wrap insulating tape fully around the
reads of the resistor to prevent electric shock.
3-2.
DISCHARGING THE  CAPACITOR
1
Remove the power supply (Battery or AC power adaptor).
2
Short-circuit between TP4201 of the flash unit (FL-2960) and the GND (Mechanism chassis) with the short jig about 10 seconds.
4.
COAXIAL CONNECTOR OF THE BT CABLE
When the coaxial connector of the BT cable isn’t pulled out vertically toward the board, the connector may be damaged. So, when disconnecting
the connector, be sure to take the connector of the BT cable, and pull it out vertically toward the board.

1.
SELF-DIAGNOSIS FUNCTION
When problems occur while the unit is operating, the self-diagnosis
function starts working, and displays on the viewfinder, or LCD
screen what to do. This function consists of two display; self-
diagnosis display and service mode display.
Details of the self-diagnosis functions are provided in the Instruction
manual.
2.
SELF-DIAGNOSIS DISPLAY
When problems occur while the unit is operating, the counter of the
viewfinder or LCD screen consists of an alphabet and 4-digit number,
which blinks at 3.2Hz. This 5-character display indicates the
“repaired by:”, “block” in which the problem occurred, and “detailed
code” of the problem.
3.
SERVICE MODE DISPLAY
The service mode display shows the last self-diagnosis code shown in past.
3-1.
Display Method
While pressing the “BACK LIGHT” key, set the switch from OFF to ON, and continue pressing the “BACK LIGHT” key for 5 seconds
continuously. The service mode will be displayed, and the counter will show the backup No. and the 5-chracter self-diagnosis code.
3-2.
Backup No.
The backup No. in the [ ] indicates the order in which the problem occurred. (If the Number of problems which occurred is less than 6, only
the number of problems which occurred will be shown.)
[1] : Occurred first time
[4] : Occurred fourth time
[2] : Occurred second time
[5] : Occurred fifth time
[3] : Occurred third time
[6] : Occurred last time
Note:
Switching of destination can’t be done.
3-3.
End of Display
Turning OFF the power supply will end the service mode display.
Note:
The self-diagnosis display data will be kept even if the lithium battery (BT2301 of DI-085 board) is removed.
