    Thanks very much old marine. That's exactly the answer I was looking for. I didn't know there was a date battery in the camera.



    Much appreciated

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.

Date and time won't stay set


Had the same problem. The problem is a small button cell that needs to be replaced. From Canon's support page:

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.

Memory card compatibility


Yes, SDHC memory cards are compatible with the Canon Powershot A700, so that means you can use card with capacities over 2GB. You can also see the manual to verify this, Canon Powershot A700 Manual. On page 8, it says that SDHC memory cards are compatible.

Have to reset date every time I turn on camera.


You need to replace the date battery. It's a button-type battery (CR1220) which is in a holder near the regular batteries. After you pull the holder out, place the new battery into the holder with the negative side up, and slide it back into its slot. (Instructions are on page 120 of the manual if you have it.)

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.
