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.
Great site, I always find all the manuals I need and i can't find anywhere else. PDF for the Sony PCM 3348 is complete and scan is good quality. Thank you!

Connecting the Power Cord
Before plugging the receiver into an AC outlet, make sure that all connections have been made. Plug the power cord into an AC outlet. Keep the power cord away from the connecting cables and the antenna. The power cord may cause noise or screen interference. We recommend that you use a coaxial cable to connect the antenna, since it is well-shielded against interference.
Putting Batteries in the Remote Control
Before using the remote control, put two supplied batteries first. When using the remote control, aim the remote control directly at the remote sensor on the receiver.
1. On the back of the remote control, remove the battery cover as illustrated.
The preset settings such as preset channels and sound adjustment may be erased in a few days in the following cases: â When you unplug the power cord. â When a power failure occurs.
â¢ Do not touch the power cord with wet hands. â¢ Do not pull on the power cord to unplug the cord. When unplugging the cord, always grasp the plug so as not to damage the cord.
2. Insert batteries. Make sure to observe the proper polarity: (+) to (+) and (â) to (â).
R6P (SUM-3)/AA (15F)
3. Replace the cover.
If the range or effectiveness of the remote control decreases, replace the batteries. Use two R6P (SUM-3)/AA (15F) type dry-cell batteries. CAUTION:
Follow these precautions to avoid leaking or cracking cells: â¢ Place batteries in the remote control so they match the polarity indicated: (+) to (+) and (â) to (â). â¢ Use the correct type of batteries. Batteries that look similar may differ in voltage. â¢ Always replace both batteries at the same time. â¢ Do not expose batteries to heat or flame.
