PK knob 2 Pointer for potentiometer setting  
Panel jack for AC/DC adapter PJ AC/DC jack 1 Receptacle for AC/DC adapter as an alternate power source When the AC/DC adapter is not plugged into the jack, terminals 1 and 2 are shorted internally. This connection opens when the adapter is plugged in. Because of this feature, terminals 2 and 3 are used to supply power from the adapter, while terminals 1 and 2 are used to supply power from the battery. Terminal 2 is shared by the two power sources and is connected to ground.
