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.

Notes on safety
If the television is to be built into a compartment or similarly enclosed, minimum distances must be maintained (10 cm at the sides, 20 cm on the top). Do not obstruct the ventilation openings at the back. Heat build-up can reduce the service life of your television, and can also be dangerous. Never place the television near heat sources. When setting up and using this unit, please make sure that the mains connection wire is free and not jammed in order to avoid damage. Even if your television is switched off, it can still be damaged by lightning striking the mains and/or aerial cables. For this reason, you should always disconnect your television from the mains and the aerial system during thunderstorms. Never expose the unit to moisture. Do not insert foreign objects into the ventilation openings at the back. Caution! High voltage!
Inserting the batteries into the remote control handset
Insert the batteries supplied. Make sure they are inserted correctly (markings in the battery compartment). When the batteries are dead, the message â€¯BATTERYâ€¯ appears on the picture screen. Remove the dead batteries immediately. Dead batteries must be disposed of respecting the laws on environmental protection.
