Question about Kenwood KR-A5080 Receiver
My receiver is a Kenwood KR-A46 but I couldn't find a forum for that model, so I'm using this one as the closest. For several years the station presets memory won't hold with power off. I didn't get a schematic when I purchased the unit so don't know how the memory is held. Is it a replacable battery, a capacitor, etc.. I didn't want to take the cover off until I had some idea of what to look for. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Have same unit, exactly the same problem: station presets lose setting when power is off. I've opened the unit; there is no apparent battery of any kind.
As long as the unit is powered up, the station pre-sets seem to hold. There IS a capacitor across the power switch. Some A/C will therefore be transmitted into the unit when plugged in, even with the switch off. If the capacitor is open, no charge will enter the unit when the power switch is open. I will probably replace this capacitor and see if that fixes things, but it may take several days to do so. Has anyone else tried this?
