I searched EVERYWHERE looking for the manual/s on this "extinct" amp. Owner-Manuals.com made it available and for nearly nothing. Thanx to them, I can decipher the unknown cables and sort them out. Thanx, Owner-Manuals.com!!
Great manual...really saved me. The only problem is that I thought I would be able to download it directly when I paid for it but never received the download instructions until the next morning. The board trace pages were somewhat light also: really need to turn up the contrast on the printer before printing them. The schematic page was great; very clear! Well worth the money.
I've been in the electronic business for a long time. I used to buy Sam's Photofact for my needs which intailed having to go to the store and paying about $20 for a package of 3 different units so I was forced to buy more than I needed just to get one.
Owner manual is just at your keyboard and the information is almost instantansouly and the cost is very reasonable. Easy to print out if needed or simply read off of the screen. The larger the screen the better for obvious reasons.
Very good manual, at a very good price. Received in a timely manner

FE-1A SELF DIAGNOSTIC SOFTWARE
The identification of errors within the FE-1A chassis is triggered in one of two ways :- 1: Busy or 2: Device failure to respond to IIC. In the event of one of these situations arising the software will first try to release the bus if busy (Failure to do so will report with continuous flashing LED) and then communicate with each device in turn to establish if a device is faulty. If a device is found to be faulty the relevant device number will be displayed through the LED (Series of flashes which must be counted) See Table 1., non fatal errors are reported using this method. Each time the software detects an error it is stored within the NVM. See Table 2.
ERROR No error Not allowed (may be confused with Sircs response flash!) Protection circuit trip < ANY TIME > Reserved No vertical sync AKB IIC bus clock and/or data lines low at Power ON NVM no IIC bus acknowledge at Power ON Jungle controller no IIC acknowledge at Power ON Tuner no acknowledge at Power ON Sound processor no acknowledge at Power ON LED ERROR COUNT 00 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10
