It's important to set the date and time so that pictures and videos are organized by the date taken. The date and time procedure varies slightly between camera models, but generally:
Turn on the camera.
Press the Menu button. If you see a Setup tab, press the Right arrow button to highlight the Setup tab. If you don't see a Setup tab, press the Down arrow button to select Setup, then press the OK button.
Press the Down arrow button to choose Date and Time (or similar), then press the OK button.
Press the Right/Left arrow buttons to move between year, month, and date. Press (or press and hold) the Up/Down arrow buttons to scroll through the year, month, and date. Use the same procedure to set the time.
When finished, press the OK button.

View camera information.
The date and time settings are displayed after turning on the camera.
It is normal for the camera to lose time and date settings if the internal battery is left uncharged for an extended period of time; some cameras will default to the time-setting screen when turned on if this happens. Follow the steps below to resolve this issue.
Turn off the camera.
Do one of the following:
Insert a fully-charged battery pack into the camera.
If the camera is supplied with an AC power adapter, plug the adapter into a working electrical outlet and then connect it to the camera.
Allow the internal battery that retains the time and date information to charge for at least 90 minutes.
After enough time has elapsed to sufficiently charge the internal battery, turn on the camera.
Set the time and date.
Turn off the camera for 30 seconds.
Turn on the camera again.
Check to see if the date and time have been saved.

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.
