Yes, I can to slove this problem.
I'm not english people then excuse me for my english. You need a telnet software type hyperterminal in Windows XP, a PC with serial port and a pin-to-pin serial cable. For frist time you need replace the internal battery CR2032 3V of SHR-2042 and erase all content of Hard disk. If you can't erase HD is not a big problem
Connect SHR-2042 with serial cable, open Hyperterminal and create a new connection using this setting:
Speed = 115.000
Bate bit = 8
Parity = nothing
Bit stop =1
Floe control = nothing
Save connection and run it.
Power on shr-2042 and set time and date.
Type "help" for command list

Hi my Honda CR-V 97 not enough power to hold memory and clock wont hold time ether and resets ever time I restart the car yours very confused

The stereo should have two 12v wires; one is switched power and the other is always on 12v power.

The memory needs always on power since there is no internal battery to remember presets.

Windows clock problem

Dear Bob,

When this happens, in general it is because the computer's real time clock battery (also known as RTC battery, CMOS battery or BIOS battery) is depleted. It is not the power battery at the back of your device - generally it is located inside the PC and looks like a small coin with the size of a dime or a quarter. If you search in for CR2032 or CR2016 you will see different brands and assemblies for them.

It is the power of this battery that is used to maintain the real time clock circuit working when you switch off or remove the power or the main battery from your PC, keeping the date and time being updated continuously.

To change it, you will need to unscrew and remove the back covers of your device and look for this kind of battery. Buy another one with the same size and thickness (check their model, like the ones mentioned above) and reinsert it to the same holder where you took it from. If it is soldered to a cable and connector, you will need to find one assembled like that or you will have to ask a repair technician to do unsolder the cable from the oldest one and solder it to the new one for you (always remembering to isolate it with electrical tape before connecting it to the circuit, to avoid short circuits).

In the next time you power your device on, it may warn you that the CMOS battery was changed and you will have to enter the BIOS setup and adjust it accordingly. The next time you switch it off and on again, it is supposed to work properly, without resetting the date and time.

Hope you may find this helpful!

Best regards,

Miguel Luiz Martins

Time date update problem

There is an internal clock on the motherboard powered by a 10 year (supposedly) battery. If that battery fails, the computer loses time and date when it is turned off.

Wolf ovens getting err message after power outage

I had a Wolf 30F wall oven with a similar problem
after power outage. It wouldnt stop beeping with error message related
to temperature control. My solution was to turn power of at circuit
panel, then reset by pressing and holding the clear button for 5

Also note: in my case I had to close the display
before switching the panel off. When I tried to the reset process with
the panel showing, it wouldn\'t reset.

To reset other
various parts of the control panel Instructions said:

Time-of-Day Clock

Immediately after the oven is installed, set
the 12-hour clock to the current time of day. It may need to be reset
after a prolonged power failure. The clock is visible on the control
panel during all modes. If the upper oven timer is set, the clock will
not be visible in the upper oven control panel display.


1) Touch CLOCK.

2) Touch number pads to
set current time of day.

3) Touch CLOCK or ENTER to start


The time-of-day clock can be
changed from a 12-hour clock to a 24-hour clock. After the clock has
been set, touch TEMPERATURE for three seconds, touch CLOCK, and then
touch ENTER. Follow the same sequence to change back to the standard
12-hour clock setting.

Fahrenheit to Celsius

oven can be changed from Fahrenheit (°F) temperature to Celsius

After battery change on my 2001 avalon the time/date reset to default even I set the time/date correctly then turn off the ignition and turn back on again then the time/date reset to default again .

If some connections were changed then the ALWAYS ON +12 volt to the clock circuit back up is not powered all the time . check if while the battery was changed if there was any link that was disconnected that is the continuous supply to the clock.

After a power outage, my clock no longer has right time

You need to reset the microprocessor in the Clock/Radio. to do this you must unplug the Clock/ Radio and remove the battery. Let the Clock/Radio set for at least 1 hour to discharge the microprocessor. You can then reinsert the battery and plug in the Clock/Radio. The functions should return to normal. If you are still having a problem, try changing the battery (CR2430) and letting the Clock/Radio set unplugged for a longer period of time. If all this fails, you can call Emerson customer support at this telephone number 1-800-898-9020 between the hours of 7am-5pm CT and ask them for assistance. I hope this information help you with your problem.

Clock always reset to default upon power up

Either the replacement battery was dead or the camera needs to be serviced. If the date/time needs to be reset every time the camera powers up, the camera is not receiving the power it needs from the date battery.
