Re: time & date reset

Very often the date/time is maintained by a very small watch type battery built into the main board - there is no opportunity to replace this.

The time and date setting deeps erasing itself everytime my camera is turned off Cannon A480

This model isn't all that old but I suspect the internal "button" type watch battery has gone dead. This little battery is what keeps the date/time going when the camera is shut off and "normally" last upwards to five years from date of manufacture not date of purchase.

Can't get the Date off the Pictures

First you have to go to the set up menu and set the correct time and date, then you can go back to the settings and select OFF for time and date. If you do not set the correct time and date , that default date stays in the picture.
