Does anyone know what the destination abbreviations mean in Sony service manuals. For example I often see AEP, PX, E, US, Canadian, UK, etc. I guess E would be European, US would be United States, Canadian would be Canadian but I have no idea about AEP or PX. Anyone knows ?
BTW, I think that Sony Assist has hundreds of manuals/updates each month so posting one new Sony manual somewhere is a drop in the ocean. For example a month or two worth of updates:
Service Manual updates (2510 new manuals) Technical Bulletin updates (28693 new bulletins)
And I believe Sony Assist is for Europe. Now add those from Sony ESI and your jaw drops.
I would still like some help with the manual abbreviations. I think I was wrong about the E meaning Europe. Seems like E means EXPORT and AEP relates to Europe. I would still like to know for sure, and also about PX, etc.

Sony Assist manuals are encrypted (protected with the user/open password) which means you cannot open them with Adobe Acrobat Reader outside Sony Assist engine in your browser. Leaving details of alternate techniques aside, I am wondering if anyone has been able to figure out the password for those files ?

I have never seen an index to the destination abbreviations. However, I have always looked at the Power Requirements for a clue. The STR-DA6400ES service manual available on Sony Assist lists the destinations US, UK and AEP. The first two are obvious, but what about AEP? If I look at the power requirements, I find the following:
120 V AC, 60 Hz (US model) 230 V AC, 50/60 Hz (UK and AEP models)
Based on the latter power requirements, I have always assumed that AEP means Asian, European, Pacific.
Any comments Mr_Mod and babyaservice?

For what its worth, I found the STR-DA5500ES service manual courtesy of Sony Assist. The manual is dated 2010.01.
