I ran into the same issue with my Onkyo 787 receiver that the internal settings would get reset after a short power off. Getting all settings entered again (preferences, speaker distances, volumes, stations, etc.) is a real pain. Good news is that Onkyo DOES have a battery (actually a capacitor) to store the settings and that capacitor can go bad. Another good news is that replacement is quite easy.
The settings are preserved by a 5.5V 0.1F capacitor. Digikey sells it for around $1.50, you may choose a higher capacitance, as 0.3F if you're replacing it. I didn't want to wait for the part, so I decided to replace with something I had around from an old power supply. I used 10V 1000uF capacitor as a replacement and it works fine. Yes, it is 100x less in capacitance, but preserving setting for a short time is better than not preserving them at all. Settings survived a couple of days disconnect and I haven't tried leaving the receiver off for any longer yet.
Here's how you can find it: it's on the main horizontal board, on the same side where the volume control is. It's small, looks like a watch battery turned on the edge. Mine was in a blue shrink wrap. I cut off the leads next to the battery and left the wires sticking out of the PCB. There's plenty of room to put any capacitor.

I believe it is c906 on the Harmon Kardon 500 series receiver's "Tuner/Front Panel board". It is a .1F (note the lack of a 'u' in front of that F) 5.5v capacitor that feeds into the 5v power of the main chip.

Hi Craw,

Did you find the battery pack? If so where did you get replacements. I'm about to change mine out.

Thanks,
Bugsey

    Yeah, that's what most of us have been doing but when you live in an area with frequent power outages, it's a real pain in the A--.

On a TX-DS787 receiver there are no backup batteries for memory preservation.
There is a chip, probably a c-mos chip on the circuit board.
Mine erases memory during lightning storms.
Easiest way to fix is write down all your settings and reprogram when it goes dead.

I have a powerware 9120 (6kva) and about 1 week i replaced all 20 batteries after the UPS failed. but its displaying battery disconnected when i try to power it. i cant seem to figure the problem. i tried...

Did your UPS display "Battery disconnected" or did it display "Battery Failure"? If it was "Battery Failure", for some reason the Powerware 9120 will take almost 18 hours after plugging in to power after battery replacement to correct the Battery Failure indication. Charger has to charge up the batteries, followed by an automatic battery test by the UPS. If the indication was "Battery Disconnected", you will need to check the internal fuses to see if they are blown. If the UPS keeps blowing fuses, it will require a board repair.

My bnt 500 does not come on backup, when supply fails output drops to zero.Battery seems ok giving 11.8 wils. These volts dont increase on charging state.Is charging ckt ok. thanks for help. maslam

Check for open Fuses first of all. Test the battery again on load not just with Multimeter. You can use a 10Kw potentiometer resistor or a 80W Car head lamp as the load on battery and see if the voltage still reads 11.8V for the first 30 second. If the Voltage drops rapidly and there are no open fuses, replace the battery. Alternatively contact a local technician for troubleshooting on the Board.

Burnt out

internal failure possibly on power side, lower than 300A fault current so unit could not trip i/p protection and as fault was post ac section, continued to burn internally.
it just broke
no breakers tripped out so it kept drawing current until the fault burnt away.


maybe this is what happened, need to know a lot more info to change hypothisis
