Phase Linear Troubleshooting Chart
Service Guide (1978)
With continual advancements in state-of-the-art technology, the average high fidelity system is becoming more and more sophisticated and, understandably, more complicated.
Unquestionably the trend has been toward the perfection of each aspect of musical reproduction through the development of separate components, each designed and perfected for its particular function in the overall system.
While this provides valuable flexibility and greater system capability, the audiophile is required to operate and maintain some four to perhaps over a dozen components. If a problem should develop in such a system, it becomes a difficult task merely to locate the defective equipment so that it can be repaired. Even the most obvious conclusions often result in the shipment of the wrong component for repair.
This seemingly complicated flow chart is actually a very straightforward procedure for locating and in many cases repairing any of a wide variety of problems which could develop in your system.
Although the size of the chart is overwhelming in order to include an adequate cross section of potential problems, a typical troubleshooting procedure will usually involve less than a tenth of the entire chart.
Simply begin at the indicated area on the following page; answer each basic question and follow the flow of the chart.
