Tip & How-To about Cameras
Have you encounter on your camera that the TIME and DATE are always cleared once you turning ON? Menu of the date setting appears everytime inserting the battery and turing the power ON?
Dont worry the problem of your camera is only a minor. For your technical information, all cameras have a capacitor together with board that provide power to save your date setting or its work as a battery.
Once you open you camera and you found out color green stain can be seen in the part of the said capacitor. You need to clean first by brush and make it sure be gently while brushing the capacitor just to remove the stain.Then try to turn On your camera and set the date and time, after this turn off and remove the battery for a second. Once again put the battery on your camera and turn On. Once you need to set the date again it means the capacitor was damage and need to replce new.
if you have knowledge about repairing electronics what you need to do is remove the damage capacitor and replace it new with the same specifiction and size.
I hope my tips will help you
Good luck and thank you
