  Nick said   I can set the clock using TIME$= and it stores this setting.

If I let the maximite run for awhile and periodically PRINT TIME$, I can see that the time is changing correctly.

If I turn the Maximite off, wait a few seconds then turn it on again, the time shown is the original time that I originally set it to.

I can set it to something else then this becomes the time the Maximite always boots to.

Any ideas?

As Geoff has already said, check the solder work around the crystal and the two connections from the crystal to the RTC. Check for bad joints or solder bridges.
