Hello  Press RADIO BAND.AUTO PRESET until the band you want appears on the display [direct power ON]. Each time you press the button the indication changes as follows. "FM" => "AM"  Hold down TUNE+ or --ve until the frequency digits begin to change in the display. The player automatically scans the radio frequencies and stops when it finda a clear station. If you can't tune in a station, press the button repeatedly to change the frequency step by step. If FM band is noisy, press the MODE repeteadly until "MONO" appears in the display and the radio will play it monatural. If FM radio signal at your area is very weak, this type of noise may occur. OK.
I'm assuming your using a RF unit (radio frequency). Whether this unit inserts in the antennea line or is simply broadcasting an FM signal via it's own antennea, it is still transmitting a low power FM signal. The idea here is to find an unused FM channel in your area, set your radio to that channel and program the Sony RF unit to use that channel. The signal the Sony RF unit is transmitting is low power due to FCC regulations and to minimize the possible interference you could cause to someone else's FM listening.
You are likely using an FM channel that is being overpowered by a real FM radio station. This is usually solveable if you only travel in your town by picking an empty FM channel. If you travel alot, the channel in your town that is empty may not be the case when you travel 50 miles away. That's just part of the problem inherent when using radio frequencies to get your music into your radio. You have to be willing to deal with it.
As far as passing vehicles, I'm going to assume that the vehicles that are interfering with your radio are doing the same thing you are doing, they are using FM radio frequencies to pump music into their radios and they are using an FM frequency close to or the same as the one you are using. Since having an unused channel on the FM band is pretty rare these days, if there is one, you can bet everyone is trying to use it for their own purposes since it is "quiet", until you come around!
Press the AB button to toggle between Audio Play, Radio, and Voice Record. Use the left/right scroll to highlight Radio. Then press the center button or play/pause button once to select radio.
You will see FM Radio in the upper left corner of the display. Under that you will see either Preset followed by a number OR Channel. If it is on Preset, you can use the left/right scroll to switch between preset stations. If you press and hold the AB button, the player will scan through all frequencies to find the strongest stations in your area and set those as the default preset stations. When on a particular station, press and hold the record button to delete that station from your presets.
Press the center button once to switch to Channel (or back to Preset). Under Channel, you can manually scroll through the frequencies yourself. Push left or right and hold for about a second to find the next available station.
Press the play/pause button once to toggle between Mono and Stereo.
Those are all the functions I've found so far. Hope it helps.
to set the 5 main presets:
with radio on, use the manual tuner to find station you want on a preset. push and release mem/clock adj button (mem will flash on display), push preset number and while holding it in push the mem/clock adj button again (mem on display will go away). station is now preset to that number.
to set the 5 additional presets:
with radio on, use the manual tuner to find station you want on a preset. push and release the +5 button (+5 will flash on display), push and release mem/clock adj button (mem will also flash on display), push preset number and while holding it in push the mem/clock adj button again (mem on display will go away). station is now preset to that +5 number.
to set the digital clock display:
with radio off, push and release the mem/clock adj button (clock display will now flash), use the tun up / hr part of manual tuning button to adjust hour and the tun dn / min part to adjust minutes.
Hallo, I had the same problem and found following solution: first search the station you want to preset. Than put the the little round button below on the right side called enter/time and on the same time the button of the number of the memory preset you change.This number will appear in the display an remain the preset. Sorry about my English - I hope you understand however.
I'm not completely certain about yours, but on most Sony decks you can get to a manual tuning mode by pressing and holding the seek buttons. In other words, if you press and release the tuning button, it will automatically jump to the next channel. If you press and hold the button for a second, it should beep and possibly start flashing an "M" on the screen. After that, it should stop scanning when you release the button, without jumping to the next station.
