Loses settings after power off

Lovely box, but I now have to reprogram it every time I have a power cut. (I get those on a monthly basis).
Is there a replaceable battery to maintain custom settings?

Garetht, there is a capacitor to maintain your settings. This capacitor may have leaked on your board and can damage it. You should replace it and clean the area around it as soon as possible to avoid problems. The capacitor is located on CPU board and looks like a coin with two terminals.

If you are not experienced with this kind of repair, take the amp to a qualified technician.

Good luck!

Samsung LNT4032H LCD TV lose backlight after period of time. Still hear audio. What are my steps for testing?

Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis.
To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced. To some models of sets, all these section circuit will be integrated at its main board. If this is the case, you have to replace the main board.

Tv loses it channel settings on daily basis

The tv has been wired incorrectly during install - it should have been attached to the permanent power line, just like the lighter, but it was attached to a key one: when you turn off the key the tv loses all power and all the settings get lost.
You'll have to have the wiring redone , correctly this time. This is a job for a specialist so go looking for a radio/alarm shop near you.

First try a 9v battery at the box by the equipment. If it programs it's probably just a matter of keeping power to the board when it goes down. You need a new battery at least once a year.
If this dosn't help you may need a new board, but I would spend the two bucks on a battery first.

Your carburetor “H” adjustment is slightly out of whack (probably a little lean). Please call a couple of local saw shops and ask how much to adjust your carburetor. I’d expect to pay $10 – 15. The shop the Pro's use is your best option. A sermon from Lou's pulpit follows, it explains why this happens and why Joe homeowner has to leap many hurdles to correct it.
Before taking it to them: Have a fresh (1.5 months or less) fuel mix with the same oil/fuel ratio (40:1 for your saw 3.2 oz/1 gal - I use 50:1 for all my saws; the next time you have it tuned I suggest you go to 50:1; Use Stihl or Husqvarna 2 cycle oil), are operating at the same elevation where it will be used, and the air filter is clean.
PS I'm Joe.

All new saws regardless of maker are set to run extremely lean to meet EPA mandated air quality standards. They are also fitted with a device to restrict richening the carburetor beyond initial factory settings this too required by the EPA. Most big box stores put them on the shelf and sell them to the consumer with no thought of how elevation may impact saw performance or longevity. Homeowners usually aren't concerned about changes in the saws performance until it quits operating. This combination results in many destroyed saws and homeowner saws of most brands being called trash!
Find a local chainsaw seller/mechanic. If they pull a saw off the shelf and hand it to you without making some adjustment or minimally ensuring it will run hand it back and leave. You can get this service at a big box store cheaper. Find a different seller/mechanic and try again. A good dealer will help you arrive at a saw that will meet your needs. He will ensure it runs properly and you have an understanding of how to properly operate it. Should a problem arise you have somewhere to go and if you were courteous with your dealer someone in your corner helping you rectify your problem.

My Magnavox tb110mw9a converter loses programming randomly.

Badge #7067 is giving you a load of bunk. I have had one for 8 months and the only time I have reprogrammed it was when all TV was to go digital. Even when our power goes out the converter remains programmed.

I would keep calling back. Chances of getting the same guy is slim. Insist on a replacement.

Re: Reprogramming tv set

Wish I had a sister like you -
No, is the answer I would venture. The settings in most modern electronics items is stored in 'flash' memory that requires no power to retain stored information. 
The only possible exception is if you are going to depend on an indoor antenna in place of cable or dish input. If that is the case, you may have to tell the set via the setup menu to look for input signal from an antenna instead of whatever source you normally use. Obviously, you would have to change it back after their team loses - Jeez, didn't mean to say that . . .
