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.

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.

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.

Time to change out the CR1220 battery that keeps the camera's time. It's located under the rubber flap on the left side of the camera (with the A/V and power inputs plugs). Just pry out its slide door with your fingernail, and take the little battery to your local drug store. It runs about $3 to $4 for a replacement.

Clock battery is dead. It's a small button battery located inside the camera. The part number is: MS614. Hope this helps.
