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.
Procedure : 1. Connect oscilloscope to TP (TEO) and TP (VC). 2. Turned Power switch on. 3. Load a disc (YEDS-18) and playback the number five track. 4. Press the gG button. (Becomes the 1 track jump mode.) 5. Confirm that the level B and A (DC voltage) on the oscilloscope waveform.
1 track jump waveform center of waveform B 0V level=1.3Â±0.6Vp-p Specified level: ââ Ã 100=less than Â±22% A B symmetry A (DC voltage)
