Hi everyone. I would appreciate any pointers on how to troubleshoot a problem I'm having. Please forgive me in advance for not having any technical skill, and I might not describe the problem using the right jargon.
So I just moved my CFTBL to Miami as part of a military move from New Jersey. Although numerous items were wrecked in the move, my creech only had two problems: (1) some cabinet damage, which I have touched up and (2) getting a factory reset each time I turn it on.
I removed the batteries and inspected the holder. There is no battery corrosion or anything, but it appears the the bottom of the middle terminal is missing a piece--the other two have a little silver disk, but the silver disk is missing from the middle one. I think it may have fallen out when I removed the batteries (I have not been able to relocate it).
So I went ahead and got a no-solder remote battery holder, which would enable me to ignore the middle terminal. But no luck. I tested the batteries, and installed the holder correctly (I think -- black negative terminal at the top right, silver positive terminal at the bottom left). I made some changes to the adjustments and shut it down. Started it up... and no difference. Still getting a factory reset.
So what the heck am I supposed to do now?
