    I did purchase the CR1220 but is a thinner battery than the original and still does not hold date.

I dropped my Canon PowerShot SX120 IS Digital Camera and now there is no power. Is there a reset button on the inside or anywhere?

Things to check first for a camera that won't turn on are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. Troubleshooting tips on other things that need to be checked may be seen here. These tips won't work for every case, but they're worth a try.

Each time I power on my canon SX120 IS, I need to set date and time. Why doesn't the camera save the settings?

Either you're in a time warp in an alternate universe (highly unlikely) or you need to press ok/set twice after entering the date and time.

What battery do I need to replace the original batteryin a 2005 tb

As in brand? Die Hard from Sears has never given me a problem. Stay away from Exide. If it's size you're after, ask the autoparts store you're buying it from. That way you'll get the right size that fits underthe metal bar that holds the battery down.
