Re: date not changing on digital camera

I know this may be an obvious thought but the Time settings on this camera require a confirmation when changing which means you hit menu/ok TWICE after setting the date and time. to lock it in.

Unfortunately it's not possible to change the date information on a photo after the fact. The best you can do is change it in the camera now so future photos have the correct date.

How do I set the date and time on my Canon camera? It is a Canon Powershot SX110IS

To set the Date and Time, follow the instructions on page13 in the User Gide.
To set the camera to put date/time stamps on the photos, see instructions on pages 22-23.

I got to say that I just LOVE this camera! Had it twice - got stolen twice in South America! :(

Best regards,

Canon A470 The date and time menu keeps popping up every time I switch on the camera despite setting the date and time.

There is another battery next the the AA battery under a little cover marked CR1220. That is the battery size. If that battery is dead, or has never been installed then every time you change the AA batteries the camera will forget the time and date. Try to get one from a specialty store that turns over its inventory quickly and you may find that you will only change this battery every 2 or 3 years.

The date will not stay set. Every time we turn the camera on it opens with the date screen. We set the date and it then goes into shoot mode but the date is not set. All pictures are stamped with the...

to keep the date on, you have to leave the camera off with a charged battery for 24 hous to charge the inner battery that keeps date on. If this doesn´t solve the problem then is because the inner battery won´t charge anymore, but it will take pictures as normal without the date. To avoid this don´t leave the camera too long without use or with a worn battery.

Embedded date on photos

this camera has an internal clock battery, which must keep the date or any other related information while you changing the batteries, the problem is, since you camera is pretty old, the clock battery is probably long dead, it can be changed, but it will require disassembling and resoldering
