Question about Canon PowerShot A400 Digital Camera
I have 2 canon A400 cameras. They are both 7 years old. They have both stopped, in the past 2 months, saving the date. I'v replaced the 2 batteries with no improvement. What is wrong? Stanley Quinn
You need to replace the internal battery which is located in the battery compartment and it is a CR 1220 battery, by putting a new one in this will resolve your problem

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.

You need to replace the lithium date/time battery. It is a CR1220 coin cell and it's replacement can be done using the instructions on page 109 of the advanced guide. If you don't have a copy you can get one here:
Hope this helps, if it does please rate my solution.

The date battery needs to be replaced. It is a CR1220 "button" battery. Instructions for replacing it are on page 117 of the Advanced Camera User Guide, which can be viewed/downloaded here.

Instead of taking battery out, open and close battery department to reset camera.
Sounds like you have a major fault, you should raise this with Canon and prob send for repair

SOURCE: will not save date
Time to change out the CR1220 battery that keeps the camera's time. It's located under the rubber flap on the left side of the camera (with the A/V and power inputs plugs). Just pry out its slide door with your fingernail, and take the little battery to your local drug store. It runs about $3 to $4 for a replacement.
