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.

Setting up your TV
â¢ Turn off all the equipment including the TV before connecting anything.
1 Connecting the woofer unit (only for HV-Z29V1)
1 Fitting the woofer unit Align the projection on the base of the woofer unit with the hole in the top of the TV, and insert the connector into the woofer terminal. 2 Connecting the supplied woofer connector to the BASS SPEAKER OUT terminal on the back of the TV If the woofer unit is not connected, you will not be able to enjoy the bass sound. â¢ Connect so that the lever is raised. â¢ When disconnecting the woofer connector, do so while pushing the lever.
2 Connecting the aerial and VCR
â¢ Aerial cable is not supplied. Use a good quality 75-ohm coaxial cable. â¢ Read the manual that came with the VCR before connecting. If not connecting a VCR (see Fig. A): Connect an aerial cable to the aerial socket on this TV. If connecting a VCR (see Fig. B): 1 Connect the aerial cable to the aerial input socket on the VCR, and connect the VCR and TV with another aerial cable. 2 Connect the VCRâs VIDEO OUT (video output) jack and the TVâs VIDEO jack with a video cable. To connect a VCR to the TV with an S-VIDEO cable: Connect the VCRâs S-VIDEO OUT (SVIDEO output) connector and TVâs S connector with an S-VIDEO cable A, instead of connecting with a video cable. 3 Connect the VCRâs AUDIO OUT (audio L/ R output) jacks and the TVâs AUDIO jacks (L/MONO and R) with an audio cable. â¢ If the VCRâs audio output is in mono, connect the VCRâs AUDIO OUT (audio output) jack and the TVâs AUDIO L/ MONO jack with an audio cable.
