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.
everything is ok, thank you very much! Product is good, no problems with download!

Before you ask a specialist
Mains supply the video's display does not light the video doesnât work The mains lead is not connected to the wall socket. condensation may have formed when moving the video cassette recorder from a cold to a warm room. Wait until the video (and cassette!) reach room temperature. Is a cassette loaded? the safety tab may be missing. Cover the hole with adhesive tape (page 13). -Are the TV stations tuned in on the video (page 5)? Is there a recording on the video tape?

If you are not using a RCA cable, have you tuned the location for video input on the TV properly? pages 5/19. Try a different cassette. The video head drum may need cleaning - ask your dealer. Press (pause) several times. Adjust with the PR +/- buttons until you get the best picture. are the batteries run down? is the distance between remote control and video more than 7 meters? is there an object blocking the direct line between remote control and video? is there a cassette already loaded? If so, the videoâs display will indicate it. the cassette is already fully wound back or to the end. is the clock set correctly (page 11)? if no play or record function is used for about five minutes when left in Stop mode, the video switches its motor off to conserve the mechanism. Your video has detected abnormal conditions. Release this mode with any button , your video then safely switches to stand-by.
