Station Memory Loss Pioneer VSX-108

I have a VSX-108 and bought it used. It works great except when you turn it off manualy. I do not have the remote. When you power up hours later it does not retain the stations that I set up in memory. I tested the preset station prior to turning off to ensure that it took. I then powered it off and back and and still retained the preset station until I turned it off and then came back several hours only to find I had to reprogram the stations again into memory. What maintains the memory and can this be replaced by me a non tech. Receiver is not under any warranty. What is the part and cost. I googled this and it seems to be a problem of the VSX-108.

The problem is IC 701. I looked it up as far as pricing and it costs around 78 dollars. I am not planning on replacing it as it is not worth it.

If you turn it off MANUALLY the power is physically cut from the mainboard where the memory is stored and it is lost. If you use the remote it puts the unit into a standby mode which retains the memory.

Pioneer VSX 454 loses station battery needs replacement where is it located???

Memory is not held by a battery. It is usually held by a capacitor that provides the micro with voltage. Not that easy to change.

I have and older unit a pioneer VSX 3800, how do you program the radio channels, is there a manuel for these unit i can get sent to myself


You have a digital display pioneer receiver and you would like to know how to store radio stations.
  • first tune your radio to your selected radio station
  • next see if the receiver has a button marked memory, and it should have buttons marked 1 2 3 4 5 6 etc
  • After you have tuned in to your selected radio station, if it has a button marked memory,
  • Press the memory button, then press and hold 1 for a few seconds and that should store your selected radio station to preset 1
  • Next, tune in to another radio station and store it by pressing memory then 2 and that should store it in location 2.

  • If your Receiver doesn't have a button labelled memory, and simply has the store 1-6 etc buttons then ,
  • Tune in to your radio station , then press and hold 1 for a few seconds, it will probably flash a few times until its stored in that location 1

  • Next, tune in to another radio station, then press and hold 2 and that should store it in location 2.
  • repeat.

I hope this helps you.
