Re: Losing Time and Date
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.

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