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.

Active mobile phones in the vicinity of this unit may cause malfunctions. Avoid dropping the unit as this may cause damage. Clean the unit with a soft, slightly dampened, lint-free cloth. Do not use any cleaning agents as they may have a corrosive effect. To clean a disc, wipe it in a straight line from the center toward the edge using a soft, lint-free cloth.
