    I have the same problem and unfortunately, formatting the internal memory does not seem to work... am i doing this wrong or is it more serious problem?

  • abomb21 May 17, 2008

    My casio exilim ex-z75 conveniently stopped working its magic a couple of weeks after its one-year warranty expired. Each time that I turn it on the language/time/date settings insist that they be reset. It is possible to bypass this problem by simply pressing the 'menu' button. However, in doing so, it is impossible - or at least I have found it to be, to upload photos in their chronological order. This is annoying - especially when you take a gazillion photos like I do. I have tried to reformat the memory to no avail. I called Casio and they suggested that I send it in to be repaired. The cost of which, they estimated, is between $40 and $119. As the camera's current listed price is $120, this really irks me. But enough about my bitterness.

    No luck with format. Any other options?

OK, here's the fix. This camera has internal flash memory that is used to store settings and can be used for limited picture storage. Its use for saving setting is essential, however. If this gets corrupted then the camera won't save settings. Whoever said to format the internal memory had the right idea.

After much experimentation here's how. Remove your SD memory from the camera and turn it on. This will force it to run on the internal memory only. Run through the time/date/location setup again. It will complain about the memory card. Ignore this and press menu. Under Setup, select format. Choose format memory card and do it. This will format the internal memory. Once it is done, turn the camera off and back on. You'll notice that the problem is gone and it has remembered your last setup.
BTW, my camera is a EX-Z75. Not sure there is a Z57 model.

You need to replace the CMOS Battery. Mine spilled out. It's at the front of the camera next to the USB Port. The battery is a Shoei PAS414HR. It's not easy to change because it is soldered on the board.

Check the Casio technical support team- this seems to be an internal failure0 unless of course there is some you missed in the manual- check that thoroughly first.

Need correct day and time on Olympus FE 170 digital camera


How do I set the date and time on the FE-170?


To access the clock controls, turn the mode dial to any shooting mode except [GUIDE] and then press the [MENU] button. Next, press the Right arrow on the arrow pad to select the [Setup] icon. Using the Up or Down arrow, navigate to the menu item depicting a clock. Press the [OK] button to access the clock settings feature.
Set the year, month, day, hour, minutes and date format using the following procedure: Use the Up and Down arrows to select values, and press the Right arrow to advance to the next item. (The FE-170 uses a 24-hour clock.) When all information has been entered, press the [OK] button to set the values. Press [MENU] twice to exit the menu.
To set the time precisely, with the cursor on either "minutes" or "date format," press the [OK] button as the time signal strikes 0 seconds.
The date and time settings will be returned to the factory defaults if the camera is left without batteries for approximately three days. Custom settings may be canceled more quickly if the batteries were only loaded into the camera for a short time before being removed. Before taking important shots, check that the date and time are correct.

How do I change the date on my ViviCam 5385 digital camera?


Assuming the camera is working, with the camera off, rotate the mode dial so that the icon with the wrench lines up as the active mode. Then press the Power button and turn on the camera. Press the right arrow to select Custom Menu. Then press the down arrow to select Date and Time. Then press the OK button. Use the left and right arrows to select a part of the date to change and use the up arrow to increase the value and slide the zoom lever to down button to decrease the value.Press the OK button when the date and time (24 hour clock) is properly set.

The manual for the 5385 is available at retrevo: http://www.retrevo.com/support/Vivitar-5385-Digital-Cameras-manual/id/200bh836/t/2/ . You'll need to enter a code to access the PDF.

I hope this helps.

The date and time will not stay after setting, is there a flash update?


This is a firmware glitch. If you disable the startup image, the date and time is not saved. To fix this issue, you must re-enable the startup image.

Turn on the camera and press Menu (M). Press the right side of the circular directional button to select the wrench. Press OK/Edit.

Next, navigate down to "Opening" and press OK/Edit. Select ON and press OK/Edit. Go back up to Date/Time and set the date.

Restart the camera to see if it works.
