Any help will greatly be appreciated.

    When we unplug it though, it still keeps the time. We have a VOIP phone system. Could it possible be something to do with this?



    I also am trying to notice if the time is changing when we receive a fax. I am uncertain on this as of now.

    Discovered something new: Our fax only loses time/date when a new fax comes through. It is as though it is reset. If I understand our system correct, I believe our phone lines and our internet are through VOIP. I really appreciate your help with this. It is driving me insane.

Most pcb boards ( mother boards) for any type of machines; copiers, printers etc... have a battery on the board to keep the memory when not in use or unplugged. this is only to keep certain functions in memory, ie: memory, time, date, settings etc.
That's what I would suggest changing, you would have to take it apart to get to the board.

    not likely since VOIP is with your PC not fax

    Find out from your provider if you have to adjust the time or if they are already set. ( like the cable companies, they automatically adjust time whether daylight savings or not).

ASUS ALL IN ONE computer ET2221i-b85 The time is not correct and keeps losing time. I want to replace the cmos battery .


Keeping time has always been a problem for computers, as their internal clocks needed something to synchronize with. If you have an Internet connection and use Windows, you can get the time adjusted regularly using a time set function from Windows online. The CMOS battery will have little to do with time settings, unless it goes bad. Then, not only will your date and time go out of sync, so can many other settings in the CMOS. So, unless you are getting a low battery warning, or both the date and time are out of sync, you probably don't need a new CMOS battery and replacement probably won't fix you time drift issue.

In Windows 10, to get auto time sync, go to "Settings", then select "Date and Time". Under this you will see an option to "Set Time Automatically", as well as to select your time zone.

Does it keep losing the date when you turn it off? or are you asking how to set the time and date?

If you're losing time and date when you turn the unit off, there's a coin cell battery on the main processor board that needs replacing.

If you just want to set the time and date - Press "SHIFT" and 12 lead keys at the same time. select "7" for date and time, use the return key to select date or time

I keep losing date and time function. I was told a capacator needs to be replaced. How do I get access to it?


Welcome to FixYa.

One possible reason why do you keep losing the date and time is just because you left the camera for a day with the battery removed. The date and time will revert to the factory default settings.

I have here the link wher you can see the steps and image on how you can set and save the date and time on your camera. Just click here. Refer to page 86-87.

Feel free to send us your comments and suggestions if this solution was helpful

Thank you for using FixYa.

LANGUAGE ON MY X6650 IS SET TO CHINESE. NEED TO CHANGE TO ENGLISH PLEASE


To do this, the machine will need to be reset, allowing you to choose the language and country on the initial setup menu. You will lose the current date, time and fax data:

1) With the power on, hold down the power button for approx. four seconds - the machine will power off

2) Press and HOLD the <Back> and <Start> buttons and press the power button - keep holding these two buttons for approx. twenty seconds, then release

3) The "Initial Setup" menu will appear - use the arrow keys to select the desired language

4) Press <OK>

5) The "Country Select" menu will appear - select your country from the list

6) Press <OK>

You may now reset the date, time and input your faxing information as required.

I hope this helps!

Date and time wrong on the journal


to reset the time and date on the machine you need to hit

Time/date
Function-7-1-start- then adjust the time and date and hit start then stop

Com journal after every fax
Function7-4-start-1-2-start-2"should says always" then start stop

receive time print." puts the time and date of your machine of the fax..example if your receiving a fax from new york and your in california it will put your time and date at the bottom.
Function7-4-start-9-start-2"should say valid" start then stop.


as for why your losing your time and date all the time is because the battery if dead on the machine.

hope this helps.

Sometimes when this machine loses power it goes to a default setting (flashing time and date) You will need to got to the user parameters and reset the time and date. If you refer to your user manual it will tell you how to do this.

Hope this helps...

Unplug the power cord from the back of the machine for 30 seconds. Put your finger on the stop key first and then re plug the machine, hold the stop key until the time and date return to the LCD. Do not worry about losing any faxes the machine can be powered off up to four days without losing faxes in memory.
