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!

Using the Hob
The Hob Burners
The symbol on the knob corresponds to a symbol on the control panel (See description of appliance). Off Maximum level Minimum level Use the maximum level for boiling and the minimum for simmering. Always choose positions between the minimum and maximum, never between maximum and off.
Ignition of the burners
â¢ Push the knob and turn it left to the symbol âbig flameâ. â¢ At the same time, push the electronic ignition knob (see fig). Keep it pushed until the gas ignites (1 spark / second). Or by power cut Push the corresponding knob in completely and turn it left to the symbol âbig flameâ and ignite with a match. â¢ Release the knob after 10 seconds and watch that the burner has ignited (until the safety valve automatically keeps the burner lit). â¢ Upon ignition, adjust the flame as required. If for any reason the flame should extinguish turn off the relevant control knob, leave for at least one minute and then re-ignite. If after a few attempts the burner does not ignite, check that the burner ring and its cap are correctly positioned. Extinguishing of burners Turn the knob clockwise to mark Â« Â».
To switch on a hotplate, turn the relevant control knob to the required heat setting. The control knob is numbered 0 â 6 0 â OFF 1 â Minimum 6 â Maximum. Normal Hotplate We recommend the plates are switched to maximum (6) for a short while to boost the plate, and then adjusted to the required setting. Rapid Hotplate The rapid hotplate indicated by a red spot, will heat up more quickly than a normal plate. Over a period of time the red spot may disappear, this will not affect the performance of the hotplate. 14
