Service technical training / reference manual

Publisher: Pioneer Electronics of Canada
Publication date, approximate: 1990

Pioneer Laserdisc player general technical reference guide, English language edition. This Pioneer published and distributed technical document was for the purpose of non-public distribution, for internal use by authorized Pioneer technicians and service personnel as training and service reference, for Pioneer Laserdisc multi-disc format optical disc player technologies. This publication is particularly valueable to readers who are involved in technical maintenance, servicing or are seeking in-depth technical knowledge and reference material for Pioneer Laserdisc players.

This publication is highly useful as a concise general technical reference to Pioneer Laserdisc technology in areas of operational principles and theory that is applicable across all Pioneer and even other manufacturer's Laserdisc player products. Examples of Pioneer implementations of technical solutions to Laserdisc playback are included to provide improved content clarity. This publication is highly technical. Some basic knowledge and understanding of optical disc player principles in both audio and video applications, and basic audio and video electrical principles will greatly enhance the value of this technical document to the reader.

This publication was originally duplicated by Pioneer Electronics of Canada in-house for internal distribution to technical personnel for training and reference applications.
