Hi the only other problem it could be is it should have a button battery inside that keeps the memory with power whilst its not plugged into mains.
If it hasnt been used for while this might be flat or if is being used regular then the chances are you need this replacing let me know how you get n ill help you more the button battery is about the size of a bottle top it might have come loose or just not working but you need to remove the case to do this let me know how you get on ok

Toyota vehicles have a fuse in the kick for the amp and sometimes there is located under the hood ... This is the switch turn on for the amp ... And 1 of the fuses is most likely the memory or constant power. B sure to check all fuses ... I do not have AllData pulled up . If the fuses are all good the amp or radio may be bad ... Or both ... Be sure to check all the fuses ... Many times I get clients that say allthe fuses are good and it is still the first thing I check ..Usually is a fuse ..Good Luck

Clock is in military time mode. How do I reset to regular? Also I want to preset radio stations and I've lost my manual.

Here is your manual in PDF format:

To set AM/PM (12 hour) or Military (24 hour) time - With the system off, hold down Alarm Setup and press On/Off to switch between AM/PM (12 hour) and Military (24 hour) time formats.

To preset up to 6 AM and 6 FM stations - Use the Track/Tune buttons to find the desired station. Then, on the control panel only, hold down any Preset button until the preset number lights. The station is now preset to that number.

be sure when setting presets you hold the button down for at least 3 seconds to set the channel, if you are doing this correctly, you may have a blown back up fuse under the hood. there are 2 fuses for the radio one is marked radio and is inside the fuse pannel on the inside of the car the other is for memory back up and located in fuse box under hood may be marked B/U just check them all to be sure!
