Upgrade your firmware, or get your little tablet battery checked, the date stamp does not get its power from the reset batteries but a built in one built exclusively for it.

SOURCE: Canon SD 1000 time and date stamp on downloaded photo

You can download the manual from the link below: http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=323&modelid=14901 From page 37 of the manual it looks like you can only select the time stamp in "postcard" mode. Also the date & time need to be set in the camera first. Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!

SOURCE: Powershot A700 camera won't save the date and time

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.

SOURCE: date stamp will not show on my camera

I found the solution o-line. All I had to do was switch the camera to the 'postcard' mode and instant presto, I was able to access the date stamp mode. I want to express my thanks to the (I don't remember who) person who posted the solution.

SOURCE: date time stamp

The camera must be set in the Postcard mode under the resolution setting (L, M1, M2, M3, S, Postcard) on the function menu. Press Function, scroll down to bottom, then scroll to the Postcard mode and press the Set button.

SOURCE: everytime I turn the camera on the time and date

There are two batteries in the camera. One is the big one you charge and the other is a little coin type battery. This coin battery maintains your settings and when it goes your camera forgets things. Same setup on computers and a lot of other electronics. In your camera the battery is a CR1220 worth about $1-$2. It should last about 3-5 years but you never know.

The battery is in a little holder on the left hand side of the camera. Its under the same cover as the usb connector and power plug in. You should be able to pop out the battery holder fairly easily. This is one of those things that if you take the camera to a battery store they will probably do it for you if they aren't busy. If you look at page 137 of your manual you will find the instructions for doing it yourself.

There is a button battery in your camera (CR1220) that remembers the date and other settings when you remove the main batteries. It probably needs to be replaced. It's in a slide-out holder next to the AA batteries (see page 184 in the manual).

You turn on the date stamp by using the photo size settings. Press the Function key and scroll down to the bottom item (usually L). Then scroll over to the Date Stamp icon (to the right of the L, M1, M2, M3, S options). Press the Function/Set key again.

Date Stamp


Go to the Menu button, to the top right is what looks like a "tools" tab, go to this. Once you scroll down, you can select "reset all"--this will take off the date/stamp info. if you clicked it "on" previously. Be sure to update all your other settings such as red eye alert/check.

Cannot turn date stamp off and date keeps resetting


Try removing battery from camera then wait 10 seconds before installing. This action resets camera.

If no work, locate your camera software version. Procedure should be in manual, else could probably find it in a google search. Then locate latest version with a google search, or panasonic camera website, or call to customer service and ask.

It you do not have latest version, ask customer service how to download it.

Time/Date Stamp Problem


I'm sure you have done this already, but you have make sure you press the OK button after all the fields are set. Something else, make sure the batteries are new and charged.

For printing the date/time...
  1. Rotate the mode dial to A, P, SCENE, Tv, Av or M and turn on your ViviCam 8400.
  2. Press the menu button, then use "right" to select Mode 3 menu.
  3. Press "down" to select the Daet Imprint and change it to ON.
  4. Press the OK button to make this permanent.
  5. Then press the menu button again to exit the menu.
After this, all pictures will print with the date, and cannot be removed.

Hope this helps, if it does, please choose FixYa!
