Hi, yes, there is a small coin memory battery, usually something like a CR3032 lithium battery. Turn off the camera and insert a new 'coin' battery (correct side up). Close battery cover, turn on camera and go to menu and set time and date. It should remember the time and date for a year or two, provided you put a regular battery on the camera on a regular basis. Also note, some older Sony cameras allow you to set it so that it shows only the date for the 1st 5 seconds when you first turn on the camera that day, then shuts it off unless you want it to superimpose the time and date on the video. Good luck, and let me know if this solves your problem. John
I'm curious....the camera came out in 2006....how did you buy a second one?...and more importantly, why? If something doesn't work, the first thing people do isn't to go out and buy another one. Anyway, from your description, the problem seems to lie with the cards, not the camera. All memory cards must be formatted (sometimes called "initialized") in the camera before use and regularly after downloading the pics to the computer. This erases the card and brings it back to original condition so download any pics you want to save using a separate cardreader if necessary and then, format/initialize them in the camera.Also, how old are these cards?....they don't last forever.
hold power button down and remove battery at the same time once battery is out put battery into charger, if the light shows red then it needs to be charged if it shows green allow it to stay in the charger for 3 minutes then remove the battery and install in the camera pust the power button on hold for 5 seconds, if the camera comes on your ready to go, if not then you may have damaged the battery pack and will have to replace te battery. If you have a cable that plugs into the camera try using the powrord with battery plugged in, if it does not work then your battery is bad and you will have to purchase from fuji to get the right battery pack.
If still under warranty, Fuji can perform a "power re-set" on the camera. This reduces the amount of power the camera requires, and should solve the problem for the long-term. I have sent out one of my customer's A600 with the same conditions. The re-set solved his problem.
