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.

3. HOW TO DO A WASH ?
Before the first wash in your washing machine, we recommend that you should do a preliminary wash at 90Â°C with detergent but without any washing to clean the tub.
3.4. Choice of the spinning speed
The maximum spin speed is defined as a function of the type of washing and depending on the selected program. However, you can reduce the speed or choose the rinse hold*, drain*, or spinning suppression* positions.
3.1. Loading the washing
â¢ â¢ â¢ Lift the machine cover. Open the drum by pressing on the locking button A; the two flaps automatically separate. Insert the washing, close the drum and the cover of your washing machine. Warning : before you close the cover of your washing machine, make sure that the drum door is properly closed: â¢ the two flaps latched together, â¢ the locking button A extended.
3.5. Choice of the required option
The various options should be chosen after the programme has been displayed and before pressing the Start/Pause pushbutton. Press the required pushbutton(s) ; the corresponding lights come on. When you press again, the lights go off. When one of these options is not compatible with the chosen programme, the corresponding light will flash for a few seconds (see programme table).
3.2. Proportioning of detergents
Your washing machine was designed to reduce water and detergent consumption, therefore reduce the doses recommended by detergent manufacturers. Pour the powder detergent dose into the wash compartment and into the prewash compartment if you chose the Â«prewashÂ» option. Pour in the softener into the compartment if you wish. If you are using a different type of detergent, refer to the Â«detergents and additivesÂ» section in the washing guide.
3.5.1. Â«Daily wash / Quick washÂ» pushbutton
This pushbutton allows to choose between two functions : â¢ Â«Daily washÂ» function : This pushbutton allows to realize a washing cycle with not soiled laundry in a reduced time. â¢ Â«Quick washÂ» function : If you select this function, the wash time is reduced depending on which program you chose.
3.3. Choice of the required programme
The programmes table will tell you which is the appropriate programme for your washing type (see Â§ 4). Put the programme selector onto the required programme ; the lights corresponding to the phases making up the programme will light up.
3.5.2. Â«PrewashÂ» pushbutton
The washing machine does a prewash at 30Â°C maximum. The prewash finishes with a brief spinning for cotton and synthetic programs, and by a draining for delicates programs.
3.5.3. Â«Super rinseÂ» pushbutton
This option adds two rinses on Cotton, Synthetics and Delicates programs. It is advised for allergic people to detergent products and in areas with fresh water.
3.5.4. Â«Delayed startÂ» pushbutton
This option delays start of the programme. Select the number of hours after which you want the programme to begin by pressing on the pushbutton one or several times.
