Power shuts off randomly

My receiver will just randomly lose all power and it will reset all the radio presets, the clock, the date. sometimes it will turn itself right back on, others i have to manually turn it on. lately, it wont even turn on when i push the power button. i have to keep pushing it, turn the car on and off, and finally it turns on. is there any way this can be fixed or do you think its time to get a new one? i have only had the receiver for two years this december :(

Sounds like you have a bad connection somewhere. pull the radio out and check your power and ground connections to ensure that they are tight.

Clock and radio resets when unlocking car with remote.


Given the intermittent issue, this sounds like a faulty electrical connection. Typically the clock and radio will reset when the battery is disconnected, or they lose power through the fuse. I'd check the power lock and radio fuses to make sure they are intact, and even if they are, try replacing them with spares. If that fails, it may take an automotive electrician to track down the faulty connection.

The GPS system on my Boss BV9370NV loses navigation from memory during a trip when the engine is shut off and restarted . The clock and programming for the radio and presets are ok, only the GPS system ...


If you are getting power from the cigarette lighter socket for the GPS unit you loose power when you switch the engine off. If that is the case find a power line that has power all the time and hook into it to give permanent power to the GPS

My iHome keeps resetting the date, alarms, presets... everything! I fix it to how I had it, then two days later it resets itself again to January first, 2008..


Check that the power supply cable isn't broken. It could turn itself on and off by itself. If it has a battery backup use that.

When i shut my car off all the presets and the clock and settings reset! whats wrong?


you need to make sure the yellow wire is going to a constant power source. that is, a source that is still hot when you turn the key off. the yellow wire controls your memory for your clock and preset stations.

How do you reset the clock?


Depends on what brand and model radio you have! Each radio is different and even in the same brand it can change. But if you want a surefire way to reset just about any car radio's clock, just unplug the battery under the hood for a few minutes before plugging it back up. The radio will lose its memory because of the power loss and the clock will reset, however though, so will all the preset radio channels.

If you lose your preset stations as well, it means that your memory wire (sometimes yellow sometimes red) is not hooked to a constant power source. Get a testlight and find a wire in where the radio is at that has constant power once you find that attach the memory wire.

The radio was improperly installed; there are two 12V leads, one services the radio when on, the other, only the circuitry for the clock and presets.
Eventually, this shouldn't be needed if the manufacturers ever think about using a little bit of flash memory for the presets and a coin cell for the clock.

You didn't give any model number so researching the manual is impossible.
If you can find the model number, look for a user's (or installation) guide on line to find the wiring info.

Crashin, freezing, and a random system clock


Try to update your bios with the newest version from Accer I have had a couple like this in the past. It seens that the firmware running the realtime clock sometimes causes all kinds of problems if it is currupt software and hardware

Wrong date on the radio.


RESETTING THE CLOCK AFTER A TOTAL MEMORY LOSS

If you do not change the built in lithium battery within a reasonable period of time after you see the ‘flashing’ LOW BATT. warning indicator, the lithium battery may become exhausted and will no longer be able to supply back up power to the SmartSet internal computer.

If the unit is disconnected from the AC outlet after the battery is exhausted, or if a power interruption occurs, the SmartSet memory will be lost and the clock will need to be reset when the power is restored. Be sure to install a fresh lithium battery before you reset the clock, otherwise the clock will need to be reset each time the power is interrupted.

If the lithium battery is exhausted and you experience an interruption in the AC power supply, the clock will reset itself to its initial default setting when the power is restored.

The initial default setting is “12:00 AM, Saturday, January 1
(1 1), 2005”.

If you notice that the time on your SmartSet clock radio is completely incorrect, and the day indicator is also wrong, press the MONTH/DATE button to see the date. If the date display is showing “1 1” (January 1 ), you probably experienced
a total memory loss. To reset the clock after a total memory loss, proceed as follows:

1.) Install a new CR2430 lithium battery in the battery compartment.

2.) Connect the radio to your AC outlet and let the clock set itself.

3.) Depress the MONTH/DATE and TIME buttons together. The display will change from ‘time’ to ‘year’. While holding the MONTH/DATE and TIME buttons, press the UP button to
set the display to the correct year, then release the buttons.

4.) Depress the MONTH/DATE button. The display will change from ‘time’ to 'month/date’ (mm/dd). While holding the MONTH/DATE button, press the UP button to set the display
to the correct month and date. The Day indicator will change automatically as you adjust the month/date settings. When the correct month and date appear on the display, release the buttons.

5.) Depress the TIME button and the UP button to set the display to the correct time. Be sure to confirm that you have set the time correctly to ‘AM’ or ‘PM’ by observing the AM indicator.

6.) After you set the time, reconfirm that the Day, and Month/Date displays are still correct. Make final adjustments if necessary.

The SmartSet clock memory is now reset and the new lithium battery will maintain it for the next 5 to 8 years, depending on the number and duration of the power outages you experience.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
After resetting the clock, don’t forget to reset your wake up times, and alarm mode settings, and sleep timer settings as well.
