SOURCE: Camera keeps forgetting the date.

This can be because the camera system battery usually a CR2030 needs replacement. Check in the manual where it is located

SOURCE: Date and Time

Do you have the Camera User Guide~~~It tells you how to set it on p37

or
I found this on the Camera User Guide

steps
1.press the function/setting button
2.on the left side,there's a column displaying various features, and then you go to select the very last one, and then it will displays more options for you to choose(L,M1,M2,M3,S, postcard,etc), and then "postcard" is the one you should choose.
3.After that, go to "menu", go down to the very bottom on the option list, you will see that the "Date Stamp" is being set "off", go there and choose other options (date/date and time). This is how you can display time on the pictures.

SOURCE: everytime I turn the camera on the time and date

There are two batteries in the camera. One is the big one you charge and the other is a little coin type battery. This coin battery maintains your settings and when it goes your camera forgets things. Same setup on computers and a lot of other electronics. In your camera the battery is a CR1220 worth about $1-$2. It should last about 3-5 years but you never know.

The battery is in a little holder on the left hand side of the camera. Its under the same cover as the usb connector and power plug in. You should be able to pop out the battery holder fairly easily. This is one of those things that if you take the camera to a battery store they will probably do it for you if they aren't busy. If you look at page 137 of your manual you will find the instructions for doing it yourself.

SOURCE: I have a canon A720 IS with the same problem

arignote,

i have the canon a720IS and was having similar problem with my date/time. once i discovered the small cr1220 battery next to the regular battery compartment, i replaced it but the problem still was there.

i looked closely at the cr1220 compartment and took a toothpick and just pulled the metal prongs out a bit, so that they were in better contact with the cr1220 battery. ever since then i've had no problems.

good luck.

Everytime I turn on my camera it asks me to set date/time. It goes to the default date/time setting of 00.00.0000 00:00 mm/dd/yy. What do I do to set the date/time so that it permanent? The photos are...


It takes around four hours for a freshly charged main battery to charge the internal backup battery. It you do that and it still doesn't charge it, you need a new internal battery. The fully charged internal battery in most of them will hold the charge for up to 3 weeks with the main battery out of the camera.

My wife is complaining that every time she turns off/on the camera she has to reset the data/time. I understand that when the batteries are changed the settings may be lost, but not simply when the camera...


Sounds to me that there may be another battery inside the camera that is going bad.


Issue: Everytime I power on the camera the Date / Time needs to be set.
Solution: Replacing the Date Battery for the PowerShot A480.

Replacing the Date Battery. If the Date/Time menu appears when the camera power is turned on, the date battery charge is low and the date and time settings have been lost. Please purchase a lithium coin battery (CR1220) and replace it as follows.
Please note that the first date battery may appear to expire relatively quickly after you purchase the camera. This is because it is installed in the camera at the point of manufacture, not when you make the purchase. caution.gifBe particularly careful to keep the date batteries out of the reach of children. Seek medical assistance immediately if a child swallows a battery since corrosive battery fluids can damage the stomach or intestinal walls. 1. Confirm that the camera power is turned off.
2. Open up the battery door / cover and remove the AA Batteries.
3. Remove the date/time battery holder.
4. Grasp the battery and slide it in the direction of the arrow.
a480backupbatt.jpg 5. Insert a new battery with the (+) side facing up.
6. Replace the battery holder and battery cover.
7. When the Date/Time menu appears set the date and time.
note.gif After purchasing the camera and turning on the power for the first time, although the Date/Time menu will appear, you do not need to replace the date battery. If you ever dispose of your camera, first remove the date battery for recycling according to the recycling system of your area.

Time and date resetting constantly...


This camera has a separate date battery. Lift up the small rectangular cover next to the main batteries. A small CR1220 battery maintains the date. Replace it and you should be OK. I just discovered this on the Canon web site.

Keep having to put in the date


Hello friend,
you can try to reset factory the camera and configure it from the beginning. if this doesn't fix the issue that means that the internal ROM (memory) is broken and doesn't save settings and you may contact the reseller if it's still under warranty.
Best Regards,

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.
