Date/Time resets every time i turn on camera.

Hi, yes, there is a small coin memory battery, usually something like a CR3032 lithium battery. Turn off the camera and insert a new 'coin' battery (correct side up). Close battery cover, turn on camera and go to menu and set time and date. It should remember the time and date for a year or two, provided you put a regular battery on the camera on a regular basis. Also note, some older Sony cameras allow you to set it so that it shows only the date for the 1st 5 seconds when you first turn on the camera that day, then shuts it off unless you want it to superimpose the time and date on the video. Good luck, and let me know if this solves your problem. John

When I turn on my handycam the Clock Set screen comes up and whatever I press, nothing responds. I cannot get this screen to go away so I can play tapes and record

Hi,every camcorder has a special built-in battery for its clock in addition to the external camcorder battery which works independently.You have to replace it...
Would you please locate that small battery on the main body of camcorder hiding with small cover lid possibly you need to get in with a tiny screw to open it..and replace that battery and re adjust the clock once ,than no more the Clock Set screen comes up..

Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up

I have the JVC digital minidv camcorder, Model No. GR-D270U an it keeps telling me it's in safety mode and I can't even get the tape out beause the door opens but it's like the mechaism to pop...

After trying the remove-and-reattach-battery exercise, I would suggest you go to the menu and find the setting for initial setup. Select that - which may reset the system.
If not.. then try going to the clock and change the date/time settings, turn the camera off, remove-and-reattach the battery. Re-power the camera, go back and change date/time setting to what's current. And try to eject the tape.

On one of our analog video cameras it seems like there was a tiny little hole someplace on the side of the camera that you could use a tiny small thing like a toothpick to press in there to accomplish a Reset. (It will have tiny raised letters saying "Reset" right beside the little reset hole.)

Hi there,

Firstly you need the remote control that came with your camera (RMT-814).

Switch on your camera to VCR mode. Then on the remote, press the Data Code button (and of course, point the remote towards your camera). This should display the date and time in the bottom left of the screen.

It should display the appropriate date and time for each bit of recorded video.

Hope this helps!

Please note that my camera is a PRO845 model but the following info may still be helpful to you.
Look carefully on the bottom and see if you can find a tiny push button which may say ADJ (for adjustment) beside it. With a good battery if you press this button in you should be able to adjust the time and date. On most older RCA models you must also have the clock battery installed. On mine it's a thin dime sized 3V battery. Mine is a CR2025 from Maxell. Using an external power supply or a good battery you can still make the adjustments to the time and date but without the tiny back up 3V cell you will loose the setting when the battery is dead or removed as well as the power supply.
When you press the ADJ button one of the time or date figures starts flashing and then you must change the value by pressing the DATE button. Once you have the value you need you must press the ADJ button again and it will jump to the next figure. Keep repeating this until you've programmed them all.
