Is Training/Servicing Manuals Good?
If you have a doubt about whether Training/Servicing Manual for equipment is good or a waste of time reading it then i have to tell you that those manuals are like gold/treasure to me. There are lots of website offering free servicing/training manuals and also there are paid manuals. No matter where you get it please make sure you print it out read and study it. For your information there are lots of repair books out there and many of the books does not contains information offered by the training/servicing manuals. Due to this i want you to know that you are not wasting money/time when you got the manuals. Of course those manuals does not have the ABC steps to show you how an equipment work (you can read the basic of how equipment works from books you bought elsewhere) but it has all the important information of how each of the circuit work!
Wouldn’t it be good if you got hold of information that have all the explanation of a complete circuit for a particular equipment? It shows how a SMPS work, where all the voltages should appear, how and where the current should flow in the circuit and many more. If you wish to venture into TV repair then make sure you get those manuals and study it till you understood the circuit. It is the same if you would like to venture into Monitor repair and etc.
