Re: problem with the date and time settings
Change the mode setting to Setup. Scroll down to the date menu and set your date and time. That screen should not pop up after that. UNLESS your date battery is toast. If that't the case, replace it.

The camera should be able to have its date and time set through the menu and it should hold the date if you switch batteries. If it doesn't then the internal battery may have to be changed by a kodak service center.
The camera screen displays "Date/Time have been reset." What should I do?
This message appears if:
this is the first time that you have turned on your camera.
the battery has been removed for an extended period of time.
the battery is exhausted.
To set the date and time:
Press the Menubutton.
Use the arrows to:
Select theDate & Timefeature.
Set the date and time.
When you are finished, press the OKbutton.

The date and time settings are displayed after turning on the camera.
It is normal for the camera to lose time and date settings if the internal battery is left uncharged for an extended period of time; some cameras will default to the time-setting screen when turned on if this happens. Follow the steps below to resolve this issue.
Turn off the camera.
Do one of the following:
Insert a fully-charged battery pack into the camera.
If the camera is supplied with an AC power adapter, plug the adapter into a working electrical outlet and then connect it to the camera.
Allow the internal battery that retains the time and date information to charge for at least 90 minutes.
After enough time has elapsed to sufficiently charge the internal battery, turn on the camera.
Set the time and date.
Turn off the camera for 30 seconds.
Turn on the camera again.
Check to see if the date and time have been saved.
