procedure(s) required to correct them. These are often
produced in table form.
Most trouble-shooting tables are arranged in
columns that list the trouble, the probable cause(s), and
the remedy(ies) (table AII-1). Once the trouble is
identified, you should refer to the table for the probable
cause and then make necessary repairs or adjustments
to correct the malfunction.
Another type of trouble-shooting table is the logic
flow diagram. In a logic flow diagram, you simply
"enter" the diagram and follow the arrows to various
blocks or segments and perform the functions indicated
or move on to the next segment in a prearranged, logical
manner. A logic flow diagram is usually accompanied
by other types of diagrams and instructions.
The majority of imaging equipment is operated by
electricity. To troubleshoot and perform maintenance
on this equipment adequately, you must have a basic
knowledge of electricity and be able to read electrical
diagrams. You should spend a few moments studying
