Question about Canon PowerShot S30 Digital Camera
Everytime i pull open the camera lens cover to take a picture I'm asked for the date and time. up until a couple of months ago this was not a problem. can you advise me on how to get the camera to remember the date and time so I don't have to set it everytime I want to use the camera?
No need to remove part of the camera case. This camera (Power Shot A510) does have a backup battery that is easy to get to. Under the rubber flap where you connect the cable, there's a little door you can pull out with your fingernail. There is a CR1220 battery - can be found at any jewelry store, as it is a watch battery. I replaced that and viola! No more messing with the date/time every time it powers off/on!

There's a small watch battery on the inside of the lens cover. This keeps power on the camera memory to track of all your camera settings. If you unscrew the camera case, you can gently pull the front cover off (be careful not to pull loose the cable). You can then jimmy out the battery and get that replaced.
