The Technics manual was very clear and I was able to solve my technical problems.
I did not think that anyone kept these manuals and was pleasantly surprised to find them on the Internet and at an affordable price.
I would recommend Owner Manuals as a first source of technical products for ‘dated’ equipment manuals.
The content of the manual was not found on the Internet and was a hard find. I check the net for 5 hours until I came across this web-site. When I did find the book it Auto loaded into my IPAD PDF shelf for books for review at anytime. Overall I am satisfied with the book and it answered all my questions. This repair book is obsolete because the product I bout it for is pretty old. Thanks for the help with the download and even having the manual. Thanks 73's K5HRD
It was magic after so many years to still be able to source this info. It was equally amazing to return my Pioneer receiver to it near new sound quality AFTER NEARLY 30 YEARS! Thank you for this ability!

6.5 TRAP SWITCH
Â¶ Outline and Notes
For video data transmission from the Media Receiver to the PDP-434HD and PDP-504HD-series Plasma Displays, digital signals are used. Therefore, this unit adopts the HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) system for copyright protection. This unit is also provided with a detection switch (TRAP switch) that will prohibit the unit from being turned on again "if the upper plate of the unit is accidentally opened," in order to prevent the panel technology from being leaked out. The TRAP switch is disabled while the unit is turned off. When performing internal diagnosis of the PDP, fix the switch to the OFF position using adhesive tape before turning on the unit. After servicing, be sure to remove the adhesive tape.
