31. Trouble Shooting Using Equipment Performance
a. General. The equipment performance check list (par. 32)
help to locate trouble in the equipment. The list gives the item to
be checked, the normal indications of correct operation, and corrective
measures that can be taken by the operator. To use the list cffectively,
always follow the items in numerical sequence.
b. Action or Condition. For some items, the information given in
the Action or condition column consists of switch or control settings
under which the item is to be checked. For other items, it represents
an action that must be taken to check the normal indication given in
the Normal indication column.
c. Normal lndications. The normal indications listed include visible
indications and audible sounds that the operator should note when
he checks the item. If these signs are not normal. the operator should
apply the recommended corrective measures.
d. Corrective Measures. The corrective measures listed are those
which the operator can make without turning the equipment in for
repairs. .A reference in the table to paragraph 42 indicates that trouble
shooting by an experieneced repairman is necessary. However, it the
tactical situation requires that operation be maintained, and it the
equipment is not completely imoperative, the operator must keep the
projector in operation as long as it is possible to do so.
