SOURCE: Date/Time stamp

HI everyone I was reading your coments and actually in order to put the Date and Time stamp on the pictures, you will need to Use the Picture Motion Software that came in the Installaiton CD of the Sony Cybershot camera. There is no other way to put the date on a picture with a Sony camera.

It seems to be a mechanical problem that can be fixed by placing a bit of pressure on key points. Here is the fix that I did that seems to have worked fine...

open the battery cover
take the battery out
take the memory stick out (inside the battery case)
leave the battery cover open
carefully remove the 7 small silver screws (put them in a cup so you don't lose them!!)
slightly pry the front cover away from the camera starting at the bottom
wedge something in the side to 'pop' out the top retaining tabs towards the top
the front cover should now pop off the camra
Make small paper spacer #1:
Cut the adhesive strip off of a post it note.
Fold it over again about 5 times so that it has some thickness to it.
Approx final dimensions are 1/8in x 1/4in x 1/32in(??) thick
Stick it in the upper right corner of the black plastic lense housing.
See photos attached.
(There is a nice flat rectangle at that spot about the same dims.
This spacer should fit neatly right over that space.)
Make small paper spacer #2:
Cut the adhesive strip off of a post it note.
Fold it over again about 5 times so that it has some thickness to it.
Approx final dimensions are 1/4in x 1/4in x 1/32in(??) thick
Stick it in the bottom left corner of the black plastic lense housing.
See photos attached.
(There is a nice flat rectangle at that spot, but you want the spacer
to be a bit bigger so that it covers the vertical line in the plastic.)

Put the front cover back on the camera.
Make sure it is mechanically secure, but don't install the screws yet.
Put in the battery and memory stick.
Try it. You may have to play with the spacer thickness to get it to work.
Once it is working well again, then put the screws permanently back in.

There is a button battery in your camera (CR1220) that remembers the date and other settings when you remove the main batteries. It probably needs to be replaced. It's in a slide-out holder next to the AA batteries (see page 184 in the manual).

You turn on the date stamp by using the photo size settings. Press the Function key and scroll down to the bottom item (usually L). Then scroll over to the Date Stamp icon (to the right of the L, M1, M2, M3, S options). Press the Function/Set key again.

here is the solution:
The date and time can be included on the pictures taken only with the camera in postcard mode. You must also activate the date stamp option in the menu.
To set the camera into postcard mode, press the [Func.] button on the camera, then use the [arrow down] key to go down to the last option in the menu, and there you can choose the [Postcard mode]. Press [Func.] again to exit the function menu.

TZ 5 not TZ50! Date stamp.


I have the same camera and the only way to do this is to first, Make sure you have set the date and time correctly on your camera. Take a picture or, view picture you want date & time stamped. Press the circular 'Menu/Set' button. Press down arrow to playback mode. Press right arrow on 'text stamp'. Choose whether to apply stamp to single or multiple photos. Press 'Menu/set' to select photo to stamp. Choose which stamps to add. Date, time, age etc.. Press 'Menu/set' again and select 'Yes' in box. The only problem with this is that it will resize your photos to 3m, which can make them grainier if you took them at a higher res. Gillian

  2. Press the menu button, then use "right" to select Mode 3 menu.
  3. Press "down" to select the Daet Imprint and change it to ON.
  4. Press the OK button to make this permanent.
