After correcting the original service problem, perform the following
safety checks before releasing the set to the customer.
Check the area of your repair for unsoldered or poorly-soldered
connections. Check the entire board surface for solder splashes
Check the interboard wiring to ensure that no wires are
"pinched" or contact high-wattage resistors.
Look for unauthorized replacement parts, particularly
transistors, that were installed during a previous repair. Point
them out to the customer and recommend their replacement.
Look for parts which, though functioning, show obvious signs
of deterioration. Point them out to the customer and
recommend their replacement.
Check the line cord for cracks and abrasion.
Recommend the replacement of any such line cord to the
Check the B+ voltage to see it is at the values specified.
Check the antenna terminals, metal trim, "metallized" knobs,
screws, and all other exposed metal parts for AC leakage.
Check leakage as described below.

SAFETY-RELATED COMPONENT WARNING!!
COMPONENTS IDENTIFIED BY MARK 0 OR DOTTED LINE WITH
MARK 0 ON THE SCHEMATIC DIAGRAMS AND IN THE PARTS
LIST ARE CRITICAL TO SAFE OPERATION. REPLACE THESE
COMPONENTS WITH SONY PARTS WHOSE PART NUMBERS
APPEAR AS SHOWN IN THIS MANUAL OR IN SUPPLEMENTS

The AC leakage from any exposed metal part to earth ground and
from all exposed metal parts to any exposed metal part having a
return to chassis, must not exceed 0.5mA (500 microampers).
Leakage current can be measured by any one of three methods.
A commercial leakage tester, such as the Simpson 229 or RCA
TW-540A. Follow the manufacturers' instructions to use these
A battery-operated AC milliammeter. The Data Precision 245
digital multimeter is suitable for this job.
Measuring the voltage drop across a resistor by means of a
VOM or battery-operated AC voltmeter. The "limit" indication
is 0.75V, so analog meters must have an accurate low voltage
scale. The Simpson 250 and Sanwa SH-63Trd are examples
of a passive VOM that is suitable. Nearly all battery operated
digital multimeters that have a 2V AC range are suitable. (See
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.)

Unleaded solder has the following characteristics.
• Unleaded solder melts at a temperature about 40°C higher than
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
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.
