Question about Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z3 Digital Camera

Date and Time

My problem is that everytime I change my expired batteries I have to set the date and time. Is there an internal battery that I don't knwo about? If so, how do I change it? If not, why would I have to set the date and time all the time?

Thanks,

Tom

Yes! Just like a laptop there is an RTC battery inside. Konica-Minolta says that it is a service facility task and that is because it's connections are soldered. If you have an adventurous streak or a competent electronics technician you can trust you can carefully explore inside but like a laptop repair it is not a good project for a brick layer. Any camera repair tech can handle the task and the battery may be non-standard.

Everytime I turn on my camera it asks me to set date/time. It goes to the default date/time setting of 00.00.0000 00:00 mm/dd/yy. What do I do to set the date/time so that it permanent? The photos are...


It takes around four hours for a freshly charged main battery to charge the internal backup battery. It you do that and it still doesn't charge it, you need a new internal battery. The fully charged internal battery in most of them will hold the charge for up to 3 weeks with the main battery out of the camera.

Hi, I have an nikon coolpix s710...after I set date and time, when I turn off and start again, it ask me if I want to set date and time...please help me to fix this problem because when i start the camera...


1. In Set Up you must select the language you want to use by highlighting it then PRESS OK. If you don't do this then the date/time will not set.
2. When asked to set date and time you must select YES and press OK.
3. After completing each step you must press OK.
4. In the final step you must choose your preferred day/month/year display and then press OK.
If you don't press the OK button at each step the date and time will not set.

Why do I lose date/time on Fuji FinePix S6500 digital camera when I change batteries


You lose the date/time because the camera has no power to it to keep the settings. Basically don't leave the batteries out if you want it to keep the date/time. On the other hand it will just sit and run the batteries down just sitting there off. It is a bit annoying but that's why. Most cameras store an internal charge so they can keep the date/time but it is not supposed to last very long, it was designed so you could swap out dead batteries without having to reset the time/date every time. If it is happening on simple battery changes it means something may be wrong with the camera.

My wife is complaining that every time she turns off/on the camera she has to reset the data/time. I understand that when the batteries are changed the settings may be lost, but not simply when the camera...


Sounds to me that there may be another battery inside the camera that is going bad.


Issue: Everytime I power on the camera the Date / Time needs to be set.
Solution: Replacing the Date Battery for the PowerShot A480.

Replacing the Date Battery. If the Date/Time menu appears when the camera power is turned on, the date battery charge is low and the date and time settings have been lost. Please purchase a lithium coin battery (CR1220) and replace it as follows.
Please note that the first date battery may appear to expire relatively quickly after you purchase the camera. This is because it is installed in the camera at the point of manufacture, not when you make the purchase. caution.gifBe particularly careful to keep the date batteries out of the reach of children. Seek medical assistance immediately if a child swallows a battery since corrosive battery fluids can damage the stomach or intestinal walls. 1. Confirm that the camera power is turned off.
2. Open up the battery door / cover and remove the AA Batteries.
3. Remove the date/time battery holder.
4. Grasp the battery and slide it in the direction of the arrow.

6. Replace the battery holder and battery cover.
7. When the Date/Time menu appears set the date and time.
note.gif After purchasing the camera and turning on the power for the first time, although the Date/Time menu will appear, you do not need to replace the date battery. If you ever dispose of your camera, first remove the date battery for recycling according to the recycling system of your area.

The time and date setting deeps erasing itself everytime my camera is turned off Cannon A480


This model isn't all that old but I suspect the internal "button" type watch battery has gone dead. This little battery is what keeps the date/time going when the camera is shut off and "normally" last upwards to five years from date of manufacture not date of purchase.
