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.

Clean it with a brush and rinse it under the shower if necessary.
Also clean the outside, removing all fluff. Clean the rubber seal round the condenser cabinet and in the inner part of the small door with a damp cloth. Important! Do not use pointed objects or utensils to clean the spaces between the plates, as this could damage the condenser and make it permeable. Re-fit the condenser, turn the red stops upwards and close the door. Do not use this appliance if the condenser has not been fitted.
The reservoir must be re-inserted correctly. Push it until it clicks. After inserting the reservoir the programme will continue after about 20 seconds. Handy tip: The condensed water may be used in a steam iron or to top up a battery, etc. In this case it must be filtered (e.g. through a coffee filter).
Cleaning the air intake grille
Using a vacuum cleaner remove the fluff from the air intake grille at the back of the appliance.
Emptying the water reservoir
Water extracted from the laundry condenses inside the machine and is collected in a reservoir. The reservoir must be emptied after each drying cycle to ensure efficient operation when the machine is next used. If this is not done a safety device trips: pilot light on the control panel comes on and the programme stops, leaving the laundry damp. The reservoir can be emptied even in the middle of a programme. Proceed as follows: â¢ Open the small door at the lower part of the cabinet â¢ Turn the yellow stop upwards â¢ Pull out the reservoir â¢ Open the small cover and let water flow down â¢ Close the small cover and re-insert correctly the reservoir â¢ Push it until it clicks and turn the yellow stop downwards to lock firmly it
Close the small door and press the START/PAUSE button again to allow the programme to continue.
