Having bought a pre-owned Sony FM stereo tuner through eBay, it came without any manuals. It soon became clear that to get the best from this excellent tuner I needed a decent manual because much of the operation was not intuitive to a newboy to hi fi like me. I managed to download the official Sony multi-lingual manual from Owner-Manuals.com with no problem at all - a really quick and easy service. I'm very glad I did because I found out all the operations of the tuner and was then able to not only set it up quickly but also to get much more from it that poke-and-hope trialling would ever achieve. In my book $4.99 very well spent.
This manual is immaculate in it's accuracy. Everything is written very clearly and easy to understand. Written by a professional who wants to convey a clear and easy to understand message!!

1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Connect your aerial to the TV at the rear of the cabinet. (On portable TVâs an indoor aerial is supplied and in certain reception conditions may not provide the best picture. Adjust the aerial position for the best result or use an external aerial). The proximity of mountains or high buildings may be responsible for ghost pictures, echoes or shadows. If this is the case, change the orientation of the aerial. Plug the moulded 13 amp mains plug into a 220-240V/50Hz mains supply socket. Install the two AA type batteries supplied into the hand unit according to the diagram inside the battery compartment. Secure the battery cover. Switch on your TV with the button marked on the front panel.
Standby âTo save energy and preserve optimum picture quality (by de-magnetizing the tube), you are advised to switch off your television at the on/off switch when not in use.
