I have a VSX-108 and bought it used. It works great except when you turn it off manualy. I do not have the remote. When you power up hours later it does not retain the stations that I set up in memory. I tested the preset station prior to turning off to ensure that it took. I then powered it off and back and and still retained the preset station until I turned it off and then came back several hours only to find I had to reprogram the stations again into memory. What maintains the memory and can this be replaced by me a non tech. Receiver is not under any warranty. What is the part and cost. I googled this and it seems to be a problem of the VSX-108.

Re: Station Memory Loss Pioneer VSX-108
If you turn it off MANUALLY the power is physically cut from the mainboard where the memory is stored and it is lost. If you use the remote it puts the unit into a standby mode which retains the memory.

This sounds like the amp has a system memory problem. The chips inside your amp that deal with it might be faulty or they loose the information due to a power loss, often caused by memory retention capacitors.
You can tell that to the repair man and see what he says, but personal I would go to another, try contacting Pioneer for a recommended engineer in your area.
