On quite a few Sonys if you hold down pause and hit record and continue 
to hold them for a few seconds it switches to manual record (paused), no 
arcane button presses necessary. That's the way I used to do it with the 
MZ-R30. If I remember right it's switching was after three seconds. The 
instructions were in the owner's manual, though not obvious.

Yes but it generates 48VDC phantom voltage 
somewhere. This may be a quadrupler circuit 
unless there is another step-up circuit
somewhere else on the board.
