Date/time/resolution problem w/ Ex-S500

I have a problem with my brand new Casio Ex-S500. Every time, when I turn it on, I have to set up the time/date/resolution/etc. When the camera is turned on, it's okay, but next time when I turn it on again, I have to re-set all these again. The battery is good, charged, I don't know what the problem should be. Please help!!!! Thank you!

Re: date/time/resolution problem w/ Ex-S500

There ccan be 2 problems that cause this. First most backup memory us powered by a button battery. They can be hidden and sometimes had to locate may require a fingernail to lift a panel. On the cano cameras its under a little door where the USB plugs into. Second could be the amout of time between use. Some may use a little cap with is like a small low voltage rechargable battery. If the camera has been sitting a few weeks its possible the little cap is draining over the time its not in use. You may have to dig out your manual to see if it says anything about a button battery. Or you may need to call casio There is a firmware update for your camera located on the casio site that fixes some problems maybe this is one of them? it wouldnt hurt to update your firmware because it fixes someimage quality issues. Remember to recharge your batterys first before you do it. Read the warnings

Setting date/time on casio z700

Here is how you do it:

Looking at your watch face: the upper left button is A, upper right is B, lower left is C and lower right is D.

Get your watch into "Hand Setting mode" That is the mode witht he digital time and seconds above it.
From Day and Date window it would mean pushing button "C" six times to get to that mode.

Once in "Hand Setting Mode"
Hold down button "A" til time blinks, then press button "D" to advance the hands, to the desired time.

Press "A" to exit mode.

Press "C" to return to timekeeping mode..

Remove the Back and front covers, then use a small flathead screwdriver to release the 2 hinges that hole the lens assy down; then unlatch the 2 ribbons cables. Now you can install the new lens assy. If you're not going to use the "old lens assy, can I have it, please? Thanks.
