    I have the same problem, if happens very often but not always, most likely if I don't use the camera for 24 hours. Camera is less than 1 year old, and the small 3V battery cr1220 that should take care of this still measures ok. Maybe a bad contact or something else is broken inside.

    I have had the camera for over a year, and this problem only started happening recently.  It happens almost every time I turn the camera on after it has been off for a while.  I am still using the original fast charge batteries.

When you open the battery compartment, there is a small round battery(under the cr1220) slot, lift up this slot and take the battery out and replace it, this is the battery for that function of the camera.

Camera keeps loosing the time and date settings. When turning the camera on the lens does not open, then a screen asking to set the date and time settings appears - once date reset the camera works...


have you check the settings for time and date have you saved it? You can also try to remove the cam battry for 2 mins. then put it back in then turn on the camera and then after few secs. turn it off, then see if the issue persist.

My M863 changes the date intermittently to a random date & if I don't see the date when turning on the camera it dates the pic's incorrectly. Thanks.

Thanks.

The date and time start up appears everytime i turn on.


Set the date and time at least once... if it still keeps coming up when you change the batteries the back up battery/capacitor has failed... my old kodak does that so i know the frustration but it's still a good camera

Clock always reset to default upon power up


Either the replacement battery was dead or the camera needs to be serviced. If the date/time needs to be reset every time the camera powers up, the camera is not receiving the power it needs from the date battery.

Check your manual- Some models have a separate 'button' battery for date/time functions- there are quite long lived and are on all the time. If the manual does not reveal - seek out the Technical Support at Fuji

Date time setting does not program


There is not an option to remember the date/time when you power off the camera. The camera should always remember the time. If it forgets the setting when you power it off then your backup battery has gone dead. Check your manual to see if it is something you can replace yourself. I am not familiar with this camera specifically but some cameras make the backup battery accessible and some require disassembly. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
