Re: Several radio stations have been entered several...
You can unplug the stereo, leave unplugged for an hours or more, then to clear the memory, you will need to press and hold the power button for a full 5 long seconds, then wait half hour before plugging it back in. Or just make a new preset where the old one is that you want to get rid of.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. goodluck!

The procedure is similar on most radios with digital tuning. Select a station you want to enter into the memory by either automatic or manual tune and then press and hold whichever memory button you wish to use for that station.
After a delay of several seconds the display will usually momentarily disappear and when it returns the station will be stored.
The receiver does have an in built memory to store upto 6 channels.Please follow the steps below to set up the radio memory:-
Up to six favorite radio stations (3 AM and 3 FM) may be stored
in memory. the following are steps to set radio memory:
1. Press tUnInG/bAnD to select the band.
2. turn tUnInG/bAnD to locate the desired station.
3. Press the M button. the "M" indicator flashes on the LCD Display.
4. Press 1, 2 or 3 to store the selected station.
5. Press the M button again to confirm.
6. repeat steps 1-5 to set other memory stations.
Incase you would require any information do refer the below web site where you could find picture representation of the same.
Thank you for your time and best wishes for your effort.
IF your clock is not staying on time make and your stations are going out of memory check your car battery the terminals might be loose making your radio to reset itself every time the batteries moves.
There is an internal battery to hold the station and presets. It is probably no good. Either that or there is something very wrong with the unit.
Here is what I recommend. Call XM. Tell them your receiver is not longer functioning correctly and that you are thinking about canceling your service because you don't have a receiver. They will then offer you a receiver because they don't make much money on them, the make their money on the service.
1. Tune in the desired station with auto or manual tuning. 2. Press the (MEMORY/) ENTER button.
3. Select the desired preset number (1~30) and press the
• "MEM" is flickering for several seconds.
When using the NUMERIC buttons on the remote control.
Examples) For “3” :
For “15” :
For “30” :
• The station has now been stored in the memory.
• When using the NUMERIC buttons, the station is stored
automatically without pressing the (MEMORY/)ENTER
• A stored frequency is erased from the memory by
storing another frequency in its place.
• If "MEM" goes off, start again from the above step 2.
4. Repeat the above steps 1 to 3 to memorize other stations.
The radio was installed incorrectlly. Make sure the red wire from the radio is connected to a switched 12 volt source(has voltage when car is on, none when it's off) The yellow wire to a constant 12 volt(hot at all times) this wire mantains the radio memory and must always have power.
Before you call a doctor or an exorcist, verify that you're using your shortwave receiver under normal condition. There are several factors which affects reception of whortwave programs and signals.
1. Check for the time and frequencies. Depending on your country and location, all Shortwave time zones are based on World Time in UTC or GMT ("Universal Time Coordinates" or Greenwich Mean Time") In my country (Philippines, Asia) for example, we are 8 hours advanced from World Time. You can check your time zones and regions using a world map.
2. Check for propagation and band conditions/ openings. During daytime higher frequencies such as 9 -21 Mhz are active, while nightime frequencies are the lower bands such as 3 - 9 Mhz. Daytime and nigthime divider frequency is about 10 Mhz, that means you might receive signals under most conditions during daytime and night time. Check some technical books on amateur radio operations or magazines for radio reception. It might be worthwile to study books or materials on receiving international broadcasts stations before you can receive good or adequate shortwave signals. This might become your hobby too, "DXing" or receiving distant stations from across the world. Try it, but it might be an addicting hobby once you're drawn to it!
3. Check if any shortwave station broadcast in any specific time of day at any frequency. Shortwave broadcasts are scheduled based on band openings mentioned above. If for example I'm a Shortwave broadcaster from Asia, and would like to broadcast my signal through the Americas, I would use band openings with respect with time zones. If it is night time in the Philippines, and daytime in the Canada, I would use the higher frequencies to propagate my signal. So I would specify the time for example "8:00 pm Philippine local time, 12 hours UTC, and 7 am in Canada"--- Asia: 8 hours advanced to UTC, Canada--- 5 hours behind to UTC). So shortwave broadcast schedules varies. Broadcast schedules are available on the net, just search for the Shortwave station you want to hear such as Radio, Japan, Radio Australia, BBC, DW (Deutche Welle) Radio in Germany, China Radio International... There's too many shortwave stations waiting to be discovered out there! Check some books and magazines too such as Popular Communications, Monitoring Times, Passport to World Band Radios, World Radio and TV Handbook, etc. You may want to check if any station would be broadcasting in your dialects as most of these mainstream and regular broadcasters are multilingual.
2. Check your location. If you are using your radio indoors, shortwave signals might not entering your homes or offices due concrete walls and metal railings or fence. There are many factors which blocks radio waves especially in the HF or lowetr bands. Try receiving AM (Mediumwave) first. If it cannot receive any AM station, then you would not receive any Shortwave signal at all, even if you extend fully the telescopic whip. If you cannot receive AM or Shortwave signal indoors, try using your receiver outdoors.
2. Check for local interference. Your receiver might be receiving interference from noise generating gadgets such as PC monitors, TV sets, faulty wall adapters or switching power supplies, motor operated appliances such as washing machines or vacuum cleaners, flourescent lamps, etc. Try turning off or unplugging each of these mentioned gadgets to see if they are the cause. Faulty house wiring or powerline noise might also cause some interference noise which could drown shortwave signals, verify this with your local electrical technicians.
3. Check your radio's settings. Depending on the radio that you use, there might be settings such as attenuator or RF gain, be sure that attenuator are set to zero or turned to off, and RF gain to high. Attenuator must be turned to minimum or OFF position, unless you are receiving too much signas from nearby radio stations. Setting attenuator to mid or high position will attenuate most weak signal, and only those strong local stations will pass through. Setting too much attenuation will prevent you from receiving any station at all. Same with RF Gain, always set it to highest gain setting unless you are receiving too much signals which might overloads your shortwave radio.
4. If these troubleshooting efforts above doesn't works and you still cannot receive any station, then your radio's front end parts might had burn out due to signal overloads. Burn parts might include one or several transistors or diodes. Let your local service technicians check your radio and solve the problem for you. If your radio is still under warranty, send it back to the store or dealer, and let a qualified technician do the repair.

Thank you very much. I hope I'll really be of help here at FIXYA.COM!!!
You have two "hot" wires going to the radio. One is the main B+ power and the other is for the "mem" function which keeps clock time and radio station presets in memory. Make sure that you have 12 volts to the memory wire (blown fuse?) If you do then you may have a problem that requires a trip to your local repair guy. Do you loose your preset stations when you turn off your car and leave the face in place (wait several minutes before turning car ignition back on)? If that is so, then you most likley don't have B+ to your memory wire. Good luck.
