Radio setup: lost of time

Post by Raythegreat » Mon May 21, 2018 5:10 pm

Hi,

I have the Taranis X9D and the latest openTx firmware 2.2.1.
In my radio setup I have lost the time and date a few times since I updated in the 2.x.x versions.

Today my date was at 1970 with the wrong day time as well.

I have corrected the time and date a few times since the last year.

BTW: I have not removed the Tx batteries and they were never fully discharged. The Taranis TX works fine otherwise.

Any reason why this can occur? A wrong settings?

Thanks,

RTG

Update on the timer problem.

Now my Taranis cannot keep the time anymore after every power off and back to power on.
The date is always reset at 1970-01-01 and time at 00:00

What can be the problem?

How old is the radio? There is a small lithium battery on the main board that keeps the clock running when the radio is powered off. If the radio is quite old, this my need replacing.

Hi Mike,

Yes indeed Mike, the RTC Lithium battery is almost dead. Need to change it. It is the CR1220 3V.
My Taranis has 5 years so it is about time.

Thanks
Ray
