These units have a small internal battery, similar to a coin cell used in hearing aids, except that it has solder tabs so it can be mounted to the pcbd. You need the internal battery changed.

Internal battery or capacitor may be bad and not holding charge to keep settings.

Try resetting the camera by removing thebattery for 15 mins. Then install the fully charged battery in the camera andgo to the menu and set the Date and Time.If this does not work then this camera needs to be sent away forrepairs. Just like a motor vehicle, some repairs to your camera require atechnical specialist to fix your problem.

Every time I change the battery in my pentax s5i the time and date revert to' as new' and I have to reset date and time. I have been using the camera for 6 years without this problem. Any ideas?


It may be a circuit designed to maintain date/time settings when the battery is removed that has failed.

Although a very good camera, I would imagine the cost of repair would be greater than the value of the camera.

A couple of thoughts though, if you are making an immediate swap with a charged spare battery, then there's a fault, you may find a firmware upgrade on the Pentax website which may help.

If there is a delay in replacing the battery, then having a spare, fully charged battery available at the time, may circumvent the problem.

Try doing a power reset:
Solution
sp.gif sp.gif Cyber-shot cameras nowadays have a built-in rechargeable battery for retaining time, date, and other settings. Since the built-in rechargeable battery is not removable, current Cyber-shot camera models can only be returned to the original factory settings by pressing a small RESET button on the camera or by using an Initialize option in the menu.
Older-model Cyber-shot cameras (prior to the year 2000) do not have a built-in rechargeable battery and do not have a RESET button or Initialize option in the menu. These cameras require a manual power reset.
IMPORTANT: To determine whether or not your camera has a RESET button or Initialize option, or for other model-specific information to complete any of the steps in this solution, refer to the operating instructions supplied with the product. Manuals are available online in the Manuals/Specs/Warranty section of the Sony® eSupport Web site.
Follow the appropriate procedure below for your camera.
Using an Initialize option in the menu
Since Cyber-shot cameras have different menu system layouts, refer to the instruction manual specific for your camera model.
Using a RESET button
  1. Locate the RESET button on the camera.
  2. Use a pointed object (like a ballpoint pen) to press and hold the RESET button for 2-3 seconds.
  3. After 2-3 seconds has elapsed, release the RESET button.
Performing a manual power reset
  1. Turn off the camera.
  2. Remove the battery pack.
  3. Remove the button-sized lithium battery.
  4. Allow the camera to remain without power for 30 seconds.
  5. Reinsert the button-sized lithium battery.
  6. Reinsert the battery pack.
  7. Turn on the camera.
If your camera is experiencing an issue and the issue is not resolved by performing the appropriate reset procedure above, then service may be required. The Sony® eService Web site at http://eservice.sony.com/ can assist you in obtaining service from a Sony Service Center or locating a Sony Authorized Servicer.

My PowerShot A570 stop adding the date/time stamp on each shot. Followed the directions and the selected menu won't let me enable it. It used to work. Does the internal battery (not the AA batteries)...


According to page 33 of the manual, the date/time stamp can only be embedded in the image in the Postcard mode. Set the image size (L, M1, M2, M3, S, Postcard) to Postcard.

Hi I have a new


.The settings will be saved if you entered and give OK

Once the main battery is removed for an extended period of time, the time and date settings will be reset to the default setting, and an icon will start flashing in your LCD monitor to notify you that the time and date has been reset.
Through the eye view finder you can see the settings detail.

Time & date reset


Very often the date/time is maintained by a very small watch type battery built into the main board - there is no opportunity to replace this.

Samsung S630 date gets reset while changing the batteries


It is really NORMAL that the date will be reset to the Manufacturer's date whenever you are changing batteries.

For you not to keep on changing the date and time of your camera, use Rechargeable batteries for a longer battery life span but make sure that you will be setting the battery type of your camera for the Rechargeable ones.

To set the correct battery type.
- Press on MENU button
- Press on the right button until you see SETUP 2
- Scroll down until you see BATTERY TYPE
- Select ALKALINE if you're using NON-RECHARGEABLE
- Select Ni-MH if you're using RECHARGEABLE
- Press on OK/MENU button for changes to be saved

Turn off camera after the settings
have been changed to refresh the camera.

When the batteries die I have to reset the date and time again in order to take pics! Was there something that I missed or did wrong?!


The manual states that when you change the batteries, you will have to reset the date and time; this is normal operation for this camera (though it is a pain!!!)
