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.

Video cassette tapes have tabs to make sure recordings are not erased accidentally. The tab is in the bottom left corner on the front of the tape.
To keep from erasing a tape, break off the tab with a screwdriver.
To allow new recording on the tape, cover the hole with clear tape.
In this VCR, use only tapes with the mark. q Remove any stickers or labels from the video cassette tape before putting the tape in the VCR. Labels can jam the VCR.
