It looks like the date battery has dried out, check your user manual and try to replace with a new button battery.

How to change date and time for Polaroid i531


Press the menu button, scroll sideways (press lightening icon) to Setup (tools icon), then down (disp) to highlight date and time. Press Set or the lightening icon to select the date and time setting, then press disp or the opposite upper part of the rocker to change the numbers, and the lightening or flower to move between the various date and time settings. Press Set when you are through.

If you leave the battery out of the camera for 48 hours, you will be invited to set the date and time at the next switch on.

You can download a manual for a similar camera, the i1036, at polaroid.com, but there does not seem to be a manual for this specific camera there. Try THIS LINK

How do I turn off date on polaroid i836?


Go to the setup menu on the screen. That's where you set the date, etc. You should be able to turn it off there.

My D.C does not keep the date


Exit the menu that comes up about time & date when you turn it on. Then press the menu button, use the left navigation button, then scroll down to date & time, and set it there. For some reason when it comes up the navigation buttons won't let you set the time, but when accessed from the menu, it will.

Kodac M8931S how to change date&time after first setting?


should be in setup screen. If the date does not hold after a battery change/charge, then your capacitor on the mainboard is bad, it wont affect anything but the date/time and any custom settings you have set. It can be replaced be a camera shop, but it will exceed the cost of the camera in most instances.

Time & date reset


Very often the date/time is maintained by a very small watch type battery built into the main board - there is no opportunity to replace this.

Time and date


There is a small 3volt battery soldered on the main board that needs to be replaced. It has a yellow band around it, unless you can replace it yourself it's not worthwhile. If you decide to replace it beware of the flash capacitor charge.

Date & time


My camera will not turn on either. I have only used it a couple of times. This is my first time to buy a polariod. I hope we have a solution for this problem. It seems as thought many others are having the same problem, and no one is doing anything to help. Please reply with some sort of solution besides taking it to a pc store. I just bought this, I don't have a receipt, so what is the answer? Thankyou!
