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
per volt or more sensitivity.
Connect a 1500
10 W resistor, paralleled by a 0.15 µF
150V AC capacitor between a known good earth ground
(water pipe, conduit, etc.) and all exposed metal parts of
cabinet (antennas, handle bracket, metal cabinet
screwheads, metal overlays, control shafts, etc.).
Measure the AC voltage across the 1500
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 reading
exceeding 0.3 V indicates that a dangerous potential
exists, the fault must be located and corrected.
Repeat the above test with the DVD VIDEO PLAYER
power plug reversed.
NEVER RETURN A DVD VIDEO PLAYER TO THE
CUSTOMER WITHOUT TAKING NECESSARY
READING SHOULD NOT EXCEED 0.3V
DVD VIDEO PLAYER
9 per volt
or more sensitivity)
Good earth ground
such as a water pipe,
µF 150V AC
Test all exposed metal.
