Sony Trinitron Problem Remembering Channels!!!

    My Sony Trinitron 9" TV has served me well for 6 years. It's still
    going strong with vibrant colors and nice speaker.

    PROBLEM:
    But, it can't Add or Subtract channels anymore. It's like the memory
    for the channels is stuck when I last set it a couple years ago.

    I can manually Enter channels and switch between cable and TV channels
    but the remote never remembers channels that I set/subtract or
    autoset.

    DETAILS:
    It's been this way for over a year but it's starting to annoy me
    because I have to manually enter some channels (that aren't in memory)
    and push Enter. Or, I have to use a VCR to scan through channels
    quickly.

    I try Autoscanning/Autosetting for channels and it seems to scan
    through channels but when it finishes scanning, it doesn't remember
    any of the new channels. When I add or subtract channels, I see the
    channel being added or subtracted (I see the green + and - on screen).
    But, when I push the channel up button to look at the saved channels,
    nothing changed.

    QUESTIONS:
    Do Sony Trinitron TV's have a battery inside to save channels? Or does
    it have memory chips? Can I fix it cheaply with replacement parts?

    Or are channels saved in my remote? Is my remote's memory busted? My
    remote seems fine in that all the buttons work. But I did drop it a
    couple times onto the hardwood. But, the buttons all work. Just that
    my TV refuses to memorize channels or erase channels. I am confused.

    BTW, Sony still makes similar 9" Trinitron TVs (same dimension and
    tube). The buttons on the TV just changed places a bit.

    Model and chassis number will probably produce better results and much more
    pertinent info.
