There's a reasonably complete theory of operation of the "B" power supply
(which is what you have) in section IXB of the HP 1000 M/E/F-Series
Computers Engineering and Reference Documentation. There were several
revisions of the "B" supply, but they all used the same motherboard (as far
as I know), so the various plug-in card functions would be pretty much
equivalent across versions.

Page IXB-6 of the above manual has one. There's also a troubleshooting
flowchart on page IXC-3. Section IXC is specifically for your supply
version and has the appropriate schematics, but the theory from the earlier
"B" supply should be broadly applicable.
