Question about Onkyo TX-SR500 Receiver
my Onkyo TX-SR500 loose all the settings I make when it is off (not stand-by) for a week. This period is getting shorter. Is there anything I can fix? Is there any backup battery to be changed or so?
Thank you in advance
Turning any receiver off will erase the settings - there is no backup battery (Onkyo uses Battery Free Memory Backup) and the length of time depends on the capacitor charge. Why not just leave the receiver plugged in? Stand-by mode uses a negligible amount of power - enough to keep the capacitors charged and the LED on the front panel on.
