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!

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.

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 . . .
