How do I change the date on my ViviCam 5385 digital camera?

Assuming the camera is working, with the camera off, rotate the mode dial so that the icon with the wrench lines up as the active mode. Then press the Power button and turn on the camera. Press the right arrow to select Custom Menu. Then press the down arrow to select Date and Time. Then press the OK button. Use the left and right arrows to select a part of the date to change and use the up arrow to increase the value and slide the zoom lever to down button to decrease the value.Press the OK button when the date and time (24 hour clock) is properly set.

The manual for the 5385 is available at retrevo: . You'll need to enter a code to access the PDF.

I hope this helps.

1. Turn on the camera
2. Press the SET button (lower right).
3. Press the "trashcan" button ( to the right of the SET button) to scroll through the setup menu, 15 times, to get to the calendar icon.

Once the clock is set, press MODE to accept the settings.
6. You can scroll up and change whether you want the camera to timestamp the pictures - I turn this off.
7. Press mode again to exit the setup.

Manual too difficult

It seems to me, after reading the Operating Instructions, that it's not possible to stamp the photos automatically while taking them (EXCEPT for when stamping TRAVEL DATES - see below).
What you can do is enter the Play mode, the stamp the photos manually- 1 to 50 photos at a time.
To do this, kindly look on pages 66-67 for detailed instructions (with illustrating images).

Be sure to set the correct time and date prior to stamping the photos. Look on page 16 for further instructions.

If you're taking pictures during traveling, you can set TRAVEL DATE, which will also have a reference to the day number of your travel (page 48).

Hope you'll find my information useful...
Good luck,

Blurry Pics and not able to set date/time

You can only set the date stamp in the “Post Card” resolution mode. Hit the “function” button, go down to the resolution selection (L, M, S, W, Postcard, etc.). Pick the “Post Card” setting. Hit the “menu” button and the “date stamp” menu will be active
