Receiver defaulting to factory restored settings after every Power On/Off

Owned this receiver for about 5 yrs. Recently, after every power on/off, the receiver defaults to factory restored settings. This means I have to go into the Setup screen each time to match the inputs to the components already plugged into the back; set the speaker levels, etc. This is really annoying since the unit's factory default for "DVD" is "D5"...but the Toslink Optical input (best quality for DVD) is only in slots D1 or D2 (Sources 1 or 2). Once I change this, I'd like it to "stay"...makes me think there's one of those watch batteries inside the unit that retains memory that needs replacing??

On the back of your tower you should have auxillary outputs that will go into your receiver. Get a connection going between the two ports and you should have perfect sound. The sound that comes out of your headphone output will not really have the amount of power that your receiver needs. Hope this helps.

There are four digital connectors on the back of the unit: 2 optical and 2 coaxial. They are marked a s 1 2 3 4. 1 and 2 are optical, 3 and 4 - coaxial. Also you have front optical connector marked as F.
You can connect 5 digital sources to your receiver. For example, connect your DVD to input 2 (optical) by optical cable and connect your DSS to input 3 by coaxial cable. Assign DVD to digital 2 and DSS to digital 3 in input setup menu.

You don't get the OSD on the screen because either the HDMI cable for the TV isn't plugged in the OUT plug (the one on the right) or the tv isn't set on the correct AV source (it should be n HDMI1 - if you have plugged the cable correctly on the tv).

Sounds like there is a software issue with the device. Try to restore it to original factory default and test the issue again.

Restore the factory settings by going to the Device Settings screen within the settings menu. Under the Device Settings, choose Factory Defaults.

When my receiver is plugged into my boom box, I get a display reading "check cradle for power"

It's not receiving enough power from the boombox so the voltage drops too low for the receiver to function properly. Check the cradle connector for bent or pressed pins and the power source of the box for proper functioning: measure the voltage it delivers and the status of its components, especially the filtering capacitors.
