I Have a TenTec Paragon, serial number 585 -- 00575, which I have had
for a few years.  A fault has developed, that when switching the set on,
the display does not always come up, if switching off for a short time
and then on again it will appear ok, also the memory ram circuit will
not hold its last frequency used, date, or clock info.

Have fitted a new 9v Nicad backup memory battery, followed the
instructions on pages 1-2, 1-3 in the Paragon Owners Manual.  The
battery charges up after 4 hours.
But the fault still remains.

I wonder if anyone else has had the same problem, and how they cleared
the fault.

Any advice appreciated.
