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!

Detergent dispenser (5)
Only use detergents specially designed for dishwashers. Open the detergent compartment on the inside of the door by pushing the lid catch sideways. Pour the detergent into the compartment, for a normal load pour about 15g. Close the lid ï¬rmly. The detergent will be automatically dispensed at the right time. Pre-wash detergent is not generally needed, but if the dishes are heavily soiled add an extra 5g anywhere on the inside of the door. Since not all detergents are the same, you should also consult the instructions on the packet. Using the correct amount of detergent also contributes to reducing pollution. Zanussi recommends the use of Finish dishwasher detergent and Rinse Aid.
Water softener (6)
This dishwasher is equipped with a water softener for hard (chalky) water, therefore the rinse aid dispenser should be set for a low dosage. The lime (chalk) in hard water causes white deposits to occur on dishes and the interior of the dishwasher. To prevent this, the water has to pass through a special container where its hardness is removed. Since the water softener consumes coarse dishwasher salt, you will have to replenish the salt container after a certain number of dishwashing cycles. When the indicator lamp on the control panel lights up, it is time to ï¬ll up with salt. Proceed as follows: 1. Unscrew the salt container ï¬ller cap. 2. Fill up salt container with water (only the ï¬rst time). 3. Fill the container with coarse salt. Use the funnel supplied with the machine. Ordinary domestic salt will affect the efï¬ciency of the water softener and damage it. 4. Remove the funnel and wipe off any spillage. 5. Screw the ï¬ller cap back in place. The salt container holds about 1 litre, which is enough for about 20 - 30 dishwashing cycles. Always ensure that there is water in the salt container before ï¬lling salt.
Cleaning the cabinet
Wipe the outside of the cabinet and control panel regularly with a soft damp cloth. When necessary, use liquid kitchen or household cleaner to remove stubborn marks, rinse with a damp cloth and rub up with a soft duster. Never use abrasive cleaners which could damage the surface, ie: scouring pads or solvents (acetone, trichloriethylene, etc). If the machine is not going to be used for some time, take the folllowing precautions: 1. Unplug the machine and turn off the water supply. 2. Fill up the rinse aid container. 3. Make sure the tub is clean by carrying out a wash programme (without any crockery) using Finish Dishwasher cleaner, then dry the inside thoroughly. 4. Leave the door ajar.
Water softener plug (7)
As supplied from the factory, the water softener is set for a water hardness of up to 20Â°dH. If your water is harder than this, you can increase the capacity of the water softener by pulling out the rubber plug at the rear of the dishwasher on the left hand side viewed from the back. See illustration. Contact your local Water Authority to ï¬nd the exact water hardness level for your area. Never run the dishwasher without salt in the container as this may damage the water softener. If the damage is slight, the water softener function can be partially restored by ï¬lling the container with salt and then running the Normal cycle 4-5 times.
