It's complete and helpful manual with good quality of scan. Thanks very much.
The service was quick and simple, finding the service manual easy and it appears to be the original with colour schematics. It contained the info I was after and so sorted the problem.
I have copied it to CD and attached the envelope to the inside back cover of the owners manual. Good manual and excelent service. Robin Wood, Wood Electronics, New Zealand.
Exactly what was needed to assess the product - excellent value and great service
Nice to have the service manual for the Sony DCR-TRV345E now. The document is of excellent quality.
MACKIE HR824 26 pages English-only Service Manual contains:
1) HR824 technical overview with the description of front and rear panel switches.
2) HR824 specs
3) Block Diagram
4) Wiring Diagram
5) Packaging management
6) Spare part & final assembly list (for PCB rev A and B) + exploded view
7) Test Procedures (where, how to measure voltage...) including Test Point diagram on the PCB.
8) IC and Transistor charts.
Excellent guide: very clear, good scan quality enabling us to print readable diagram :-)
Mackie HR824 make extensive use of surface mount devices (SMD). Service on the HR824 must
only be undertaken by experienced service technicians with the right tools, experience and patience to perform surface mount rework when needed.
6. Control Circuit
The control circuit consists of a microprocessor (IC13) and its peripheral circuits. It controls the TX-RX unit and transfers data to and from the display unit. IC13 mainly performs the following: (1) Switching between transmission and reception by the PTT signal input. (2) Reading system, group, frequency, and program data from the memory circuit. (3) Sending frequency program data to the PLL. (4) Controlling squelch on/off by the DC voltage from the squelch circuit. (5) Controlling the audio mute circuit by the decode data input. (6) Transmitting tone and encode data.
3) Low battery warning
The battery voltage is monitored by the microprocessor (IC13). When the battery voltage falls below the voltage set by the Low Battery Warning adjustment, the LED flashes red to notify the operator that it is time to replace the battery. If the battery voltage falls even more (approx. 5.8V), a beep sounds and transmission is stopped. Low battery warning The red LED flashes during transmission. The red LED flashes and a continuous beep sounds while PTT is pressed. Battery condition The battery voltage is low but the transceiver is still usable. The battery voltage is low and the transceiver is not able to make calls.
1) Frequency shift circuit
The microprocessor (IC13) operates at a clock of 9.8304MHz. This oscillator has a circuit that shifts the frequency by BEAT SHIFT SW (Q31).
2) Memory circuit
Memory circuit consists of the CPU (IC13) and a flash memory (IC12). A flash memory has a capacity of 2M bits that contains the transceiver control program for the CPU and data such as transceiver channels and operating features. This program can be easily written from an external device. Data, such as DTMF memories and the operating status, are programmed into the EEPROM (IC10).
Flash Memory Note : The flash memory holds data such as written with the FPU (KPG-56D), and firmware program (User mode, Test mode, Tuning mode, etc.). This data must be rewritten when replacing the flash memory. EEPROM Note : The EEPROM stores tuning data (Deviation, Squelch, etc.). Realign the transceiver after replacing the EEPROM.
