I'm having a problem with my television, and I didn't know better but to post it here.

When I shut it down and start it up again, all my channel presets are gone and I have to do a scan every time to find them.
I'm not sure but someone told me it would be the battery which is low.

Is this true?
If so, can I change it myself?

Thx in advance!

Which program are you using for TV viewing? I use Windows Media Center included in Vista. Also, what type of TV tuner do you have?

What kind of Television do you have. Most tvs will use the small amount of voltage that runs in the background to maintain the memory when the set is off, the only time that the battery should come into effect is if the line voltage is disrupted. Are you turning the power off on a power strip or by a light switch?

Most current sets store tuning data in Flash RAM or EEPROM, when this fails to store it generally indicates a faulty storage chip. But it's not impossible that the TV could use CMOS memory with a backup battery, I've seen the occasional Philips set do that. As you say, there seems to be very little information about the brand.
