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.
If so please leave a vote or comment.

Have a great day

I just bought the RCA CD/DVD home theater system RTD206. I cant figure out how to change the radio channels. Also cant figure out how to change the cd disk tracks. Does this system have a remote. Or do...

The system does have a remote (at least it should come with one if purchased new), and you need it to control pretty much everything. Here's what the manual says about the radio tuner (you can find the whole manual here) :

Manual Tuning
1. Connect the FM aerial and the AM loop antenna at the back of the unit. Rotate the AM loop for
better reception.
2. Press TUNER to enter TUNER mode and toggle between FM and AM.
3. When the FM station broadcasts Stereo sound, ST is displayed.
4. Tune a station by pressing repeatedly the TUNER+/- buttons until the desired station is found.
Alternatively, you can press and hold the same buttons down for about one second to activate
the automatic search function. In this mode the player will automatically tune frequencies until
it finds a station.
5. Repeat step 4 to tune to another radio station.

Storing radio stations
The player can store up to 30 radio stations in its memory. You can enter every single radio station
yourself or the player can store all available radio stations automatically in ascending order.
Automatic preset programming
1. Press TUNER to enter the Tuner mode.
2. Press and hold TUNER down for 3 seconds to start automatic preset programming.
Note: A weak signal can affect the "Automatic preset programming" function's efficiency. Adjust the aerial for better
reception and a more efficient search.
3. Radio frequencies will be browsed and radio stations stored automaitcally. When all the available
radio stations are stored or all 30 memory locations are full, the auto preset programming
function will stop.

Manual preset
1. Tune to a radio station (see "Manual tuning" for details).
2. Press MEMORY once to enter flashing Preset Loaction number.
3. While the Preset Location number is still flashing, input your desired preset number (1-30) using
the numeric buttons or press the CH+/- buttons, then press MEMORY to store it.

Retrieving preset stations
1. Press TUNER to enter the Tuner mode.
2. Press CH+/- to search up or down for the preset stations or directly press the numeric buttons.

As you see, you really need that remote. The same is true for disc play. While there are front panel buttons for play/stop, disc skip, and drawer open/close, you don't have any other control without the remote. Without the remote control you'll find this system won't do too much, unfortunately. If you bought this new, check the packing material before you throw it away to make sure the remote's not still somewhere in the box. They often come tucked into slots on the foam inserts.

Also, when you hook the unit to a TV, it's just using the TV as a video display device. The TV has nothing to do with any of the system's other functions.

I hope you have luck locating the remote! Thanks for using Fixya.

How to store the radio station in memory

You didn't specify the brand or model number of your receiver, but on most receivers you press and hold the preset button in order to store that radio channel. As soon as the station is memorized (usually around five seconds of holding the preset button) you'll see the display blink or you'll hear a sound.

Analogue receiver loses preset stations frequently.

I would guess that their could be an internal battery, like the ones in digital watches, that feeds a memory chip. There's another possibilty that the feed to the chip is a memory retention capacitor. If so look for something like this on the PC Board. They are always 5.5 volts if that helps.

Most times it goes like this:

find your station by manually searching the frequency. When found, press the memory button and in your display the word memory will flash. than press the number you want it stored under and hold it pressed untill the flashing stops.

Other option:
once station is selected, press the preset number and hold it untill you hear a beep or, if the number flashes on your display, it stops flashing.
often you have the possibility to store aprx 10 presets on 1 band, by seleting the band you get new presets for each band, geeting in total 40 preset possibilities.

Let me know if this solved your problem.

Onkyo tx 902

I have a TX-902 owners manual.
It states:

Classified Memory Function. The memory can be divided for different users or programs of stations.
How to classify stations. With this model, six classes (Class A to F) are available and stations can be memorized in any class. A total of 30 stations can be memorized in any class. A total of 30 stations can be memorized.

1. Tune in the desired station.
2. Press the MEMORY button. The MEMORY indicator will flash for 8 seconds.
3. Press the desired Classified Memory button (one of buttons A to F). The station is memorized in the selected class with the memory number which is the smallest of the unoccupied numbers in the class.

By repeating the operations above, up to 30 stations can be memorized. Any more will produce "FULL" notice.

How to cancel memorized stations:
Retrieve the class number you want to cancel and then press the MUTE/MODE button while holding down the MEMORY button. Another station can be memorized with the memory number which has been cancelled.

Hope this helps.

Setting presets on KLH R3100

No, not so easy, this isn't like your average car radio, unfortunately. This was driving me nuts, too, but I finally found a manual. Hopefully you have a remote, since that is needed.

Once you are on the station you want to save, press MEMORY on the remote. MEMORY will blink on the receiver's display. While MEMORY is flashing, press the button(s) on the remote for the number you want to save the station under.
