M500 (not T model) manual and schematics

Post by engtaz » Fri Oct 03, 2008 7:46 pm

I received a M500 that needs troubleshooting. Does anyone have a manual and/or schematics. It is the non T version and tfm75 has no manual and/or schematics for this model.

Thanks,
engtaz

Thanks for the schematics. Does anyone have the Manual. Don't you find it kind of funny that the library has M500T but not M500. :-k

Thanks again,
engtaz

Looks like somebody beat me to the schematic (pretty bare 'service manual' eh?)
The owner's manual is here (the closest I could get you is an M-500 Mk II owner's manual, just ignore the addendum at the end and the Mk II specifications column):

I picked up a M500 in need of servicing - a cracked, leaking cap needs replacing.

(It's the M500 model - I have an M500t too, it's fine)

Rich's download link here worked for me for the owners manual, thanks! =D>

...does anyone have the SM or schematic? thanks in advance.

speakerlabfan, you might look at my thread over in the MODS section on how I fixed mine. Should give you a parts list to start with anyway.

EDIT" It was in the "repairs" section.
It should sound like it isn't there!
