LEAKAGE CURRENT CHECK
Plug the AC line cord directly into a 120V AC outlet (do
not use an isolation transformer for this check). Use an
AC Voltmeter, having 5000 W per volt or more sensitiv-
ity. Connect a 1500 W 10 W resistor, paralleled by a
0.15 µF 150V AC capacitor between a known good
earth ground (water pipe, conduit, etc.) and all ex-
posed metal parts of cabinet (antennas, handle
bracket, metal cabinet, screwheads, metal overlays,
control shafts, etc.).
Measure the AC voltage across the 1500 W resistor.
The test must be conducted with the AC switch on and
then repeated with the AC switch off. The AC voltage
indicated by the meter may not exceed 0.3 V. A read-
ing exceeding 0.3 V indicates that a dangerous poten-
tial exists, the fault must be located and corrected.
Repeat the above test with the VCR power plug
