Question about Canon PowerShot SD870 IS Digital Camera
when I insert memory card to my camera and battery, turn it on, it writes "no memory card". I tried to insert other memory cards, nothing helps (it works before).
When I turn off and then turn on camera, it always ask me for "set date/time", but I set it before - it seems to me, that internal battery is dead, but I cannot find any info about that.
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.
