On my mother-in-law's Exilim camera, we resolved the issue by formatting the camera's internal memory storage (take out your memory card and navigate to the format option on the menu). You'll need to then set the date and time again but it then seems to store it. Hoping that helps someone.
I have the same problem too, i think i pointed where the cmos battery is but i am not sure if it is the battery or not. when u open the door it should be to the right. it is not accessible til you open the camera. again im not sure if that is the battery. once i comfirmed. ill buy a broken one on ebay and swap it out.

The Turn off and on again error message displays when there is an internal malfunction or a malfunction with the Lens. The error message normally displays with the issue with the Lens. Try the following steps to check if the issue can be resolved. Try power resetting the Camera. Turn off the Camera. Remove the battery pack. Press and hold the power button for 15 seconds. Then, allow the Camera to remain without power for 60 seconds. Re-insert the battery pack and check if the Lens retracts. You can also try resetting the Camera back to factory default. To reset the Camera back to factory default, select the INITIALIZE option from the Setup 1 Menu of the Camera to OK. (Menu-->Setup-->Setup 1-->Initialize-->OK.)
This should resolve the issue. If the issue persists, service may be required.
Perform the reset operation to initialize the camera’s setup (page 136). After that, configure each setting. If the language selection screen does not re-appear when you turn the camera on, it means that the camera’s built-in memory management area has been restored. If the same message appears after you turn power back on, contact your retailer or a CASIO service center.

You must inizializate your camera, but dont
leave time adjusting the date. When your camera restart select any date
quickly, then change the camera to the ISO option, to desactivate the
flash temporarily, then change to AUTO option, and desactivate the
flash. For the moment is the best option. Te problem may be ocasionated
because your camera was in wet area and ocasionate a shortcut, but you
need to verify if the problem is in the flash card, in any terminal, or
in the motherboard.
"The date and time will reset and the setting will need to be readjusted. The camera does not have a separate battery for the clock. The date and time will reset whenever the camera is not supplied power by the battery and USB cradle for about 24 hours." Sounds a bit messy to me.
If I can be of further assistance, please let me know.
