Hi Joanne,
It's not a bias current adjustment, the MLA-30 uses a video op-amp and the pot in the head unit is a gain (feedback) control.
Unfortunately the whole design is very flawed, and increasing the gain simply rolls off the performance at HF, as the gain bandwidth product is inadequate in this application.
An outline circuit can be found on this webpage (when it's working).
