W a r n i n g : When servicing the test set, be extremely careful not to contact the B+
v o l t a g e s (from -150 volts to +300 volts dc, and from -300 volts to +150 volts dc). With
a c power removed, high dc potentials may still be retained as charges on capacitors.
Before touching the exposed parts, be sure that these potentials are removed by shorting
t h e capacitors to ground. Be especially careful when checking the ac input circuits at
tieholder XF701 at the terminals of powerline filters FL703 through FL706, at terminal
b o a r d s TB701 through TB706, and at the terminals of POWER ON-OFF switch S710.
