SONY WIRELESS INSTRUCTIONS

THE INFRARED CAN SEE EACH OTHER.

Hold down “Set” for a second and it will blink.

 

Once blinking hit it again and it will search for the best frequency 

 

The receiver will light up “No” and you need to toggle down with the arrows to “Yes” and once  there you hit “set” to select it.

 

ALTERNATIVELY 

 

You can hold down the “set” and “power” on button on the receiver and it will immediately search for the best available channel. 

 

FOR HEADPHONE VOLUME

 

Arrow down to “phones” 

Hold “set” until it blinks

Then adjust volume with the arrows

 

TRANSMITTER:

 

The letter after the “antenna” symbol is “L” for 5 milliwatt or “H” for 30 milliwatt 

 

“Group” OO  “TV Channel” 30, and “Mic Channel” 01
