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.
This manual is immaculate in it's accuracy. Everything is written very clearly and easy to understand. Written by a professional who wants to convey a clear and easy to understand message!!

6. THINGS TO NOTE
In the event of an interruption of the electricity supply, the timer will reset itself to zero, and all programming will be cancelled.
7. AUTOMATIC COOKING
It is advisable to leave food in the oven for as short a time as possible before automatic cooking. Always ensure commercially prepared food is well within its use by date and that home prepared food is fresh and of good quality. When cooking is complete, do not leave food to stand in the oven, but remove and cool it quickly if the food is not to be consumed immediately. Always ensure food in the oven has been covered before cooking if it is not possible to remove food immediately after cooking. Follow the cooking instructions on packets of prepared and cooked chilled foods, but be prepared to adjust cooking time and temperatures to suit your particular oven. For example, the fan oven generally requires 2025Â°C lower temperature than conventional ovens. Always ensure that cooked chilled foods are thoroughly re-heated until they are piping hot throughout. If not eaten straight away after cooking, food should be cooled as quickly as possible (within one hour) and then refrigerated or frozen as required. (Do not put hot food into a Refrigerator or Freezer).
