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.

SETTING THE TVâS CLOCK
our television comes with an onscreen clock. During normal operation the clock appears on the screen when the STATUS/EXIT button is pressed or when a channel change occurs.
Press the CLOCK button on the remote to display the onscreen CLOCK menu. Press the CURSOR UP OR CURSOR DOWN s buttons until the words SET CLOCK are highlighted. Enter the current time using the NUMBERED buttons. If the first number is a single digit first enter a zero then the digit (i.e., press â0â, then press â8â).
