Question about Televison & Video
AFTER SETTING TIME / DATE ect and preset no problem (24 hr)
after turning the recorder off at night time at wall plug, it will not hold it's time/date have to reset when turning back on
is this normal ?
or will i have to leave it on standby all the time ?
Is there an option To Save Settings, after setting the time-date ?
Most devices usually have a small internal battery or memory chip that stores this information. however there are also devices that when power is removed completely. i.e a power failure or switched off at the mains, time and date settings have to be reset.
Hope this solves your problem.
