Re: r707wont work freeze of something problem
Sounds like the camera OS is running into a problem when it tries to store the new date information to memory. The data path could be corrupted, or it could be a faulty internal battery. Hopefully your camera still works when you bypass setting the time and date, so you can still use it.

On digital cameras, the data is stored with the filename. Check the back of your prints to see if the dates were not printed there. Most companies do put at least the date information on the back of the prints as well as any other metadata stored with the file produced by the digital camera. Unlike film cameras, which could only record the date by actually putting it on the picture, digital pictures contain metadata that can include things such as people tags, location tags (geotagging), etc. depending upon the capabilities of your camera. The date and time is always stored along with the filename on all digital cameras. If the company that printed your pictures did not include the date on the back of the picture, ask them if they can do it or find another source to print your pictures that can.

The internal battery is bad. It has to be replaced. Contact your local Sony service center, but
if they ask too much, you can contact me at email@example.com
and I will give you a good price.
I work in Sony service center.
Date/time are set at "first use" or through the tools menu. Remove the batteries. Leave the camera overnight, this may be enough to lose the current settings and allow setting new date/time.
Press Menu button. Press right arrow on the 4-way controller to get the Tools (spanner) highlighted. Press down arrow to get to date (or time). Press right arrow Now set to your preferred format.
If this does not work, try changing another item in the Tools menu. If that change is not accepted, then it's into the dealer.
Many digital cameras have a 2nd disposable battery to remember settings like date and time, and where to put the pictures, when the rechargeable battery is removed,, but I don't believe that is the case with your camera.
possibly you are not actually getting the time set correctly, since
the camera will continue to ask for time & date setting every time the camera starts, if it is not set properly when it asks. Concerning internal memory- Can you transfer the images from internal memory to the memory sick when you do insert it, or is there a chance that the memory stick is defective, and therefore the camera doesn't record to it?
The date/time battery is "built in" (not replaceable) to this model according to page 13 in the manual (available here). It is supposed to recharge when you have the regular battery installed, but if you leave the regular battery out for more than "approximately three weeks", the internal battery may go flat.
I'm not sure this has anything to do with the memory card issue, though. Check the battery problem by inserting a freshly charged battery, turning on the camera and setting the correct date and time, then turning off the camera and waiting an hour or so (with the main battery still in the camera). Turn the camera back on, and if the date and time have to be reset again, your internal battery may be bad, and the camera would need to be serviced.
Try removing battery from camera then wait 10 seconds before installing. This action resets camera.
If no work, locate your camera software version. Procedure should be in manual, else could probably find it in a google search. Then locate latest version with a google search, or panasonic camera website, or call to customer service and ask.
It you do not have latest version, ask customer service how to download it.
There is a small 3volt battery soldered on the main board that needs to be replaced. It has a yellow band around it, unless you can replace it yourself it's not worthwhile. If you decide to replace it beware of the flash capacitor charge.
