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.

Changing the Batteries
Be sure to use only size AA batteries.
Push down on the remoteâs back cover and slide towards the bottom to remove it. Insert two AA batteries (supplied), carefully noting the "+" and "-" markings on the batteries and on the remote control. To avoid a potential short circuit, insert the "-" end first.
3 When batteries are installed, slide the cover
back into place (until it clicks into position). â¢ If the remote control acts erratically, replace the batteries. Typical battery life is six months to one year. â¢ We recommend using alkaline batteries for longer battery life. When you change the batteries, try to complete the task within three minutes. If you take longer than three minutes, the remote control codes for your VCR and/or Cable Box may have to be reset (page 12-13).
