It doesnt seem to be just a power loss that causes it, because I have had those with no memory loss in either unit. Maybe a surge ?
With the 745, none of the clocks in the house would be flashing indicated a power outage which always had me scratching my head. I learned to just write the settings down now so its not a big pita.
I had a 7550HD and a 435 that lost settings after power outages. The 435 lost settings after simply unplugging it. The 7550HD would keep its settings if unplugged (tested for a few hours), but a quick power outage (while it was not in use) of just ~15 minutes zapped its settings back to default. Wierd.
That ^^^ 7550HD has been replaced with another one (for the HDMI 1.4 upgrade). Haven't had any power outages yet so don't know if it has the same problem.
BUT, this one has a NEW problem. It shuts off by itself a few seconds after powering on. If I turn it back on right after, it'll stay on. What's wierd is that I used to have a window of a few seconds (maybe ~15-20) within which I could turn the unit back on and have it stay on. Over time that window has gotten smaller and now I have to turn it back on immediately in order for it to stay on. Processor resets haven't helped. It ALWAYS turns off at the point where the display changes from telling you the volume to the source/input. For example I'll turn it on and it'll say DVD & Vol -40dB, the bottom line will change to HDMI 1 / HDMI 1, right after that it'll click off. Doesn't matter what source or input, FM Radio, Cable, Analog etc...
Reading above, sounds like it would have to be sent in for repair because they're out of replacements/new ones... New model not due to summer 2012? I think I remember reading that somewhere here...
Any ideas on what's wrong with it?
