When I turn on the camera, it wants me to add the date and time, which I do and then the camera works fine as long as I leave it on. When I turn it off and then back on, it asks me for the date and time again. Is there some sort of internal battery that needs to be replaced?

In most modern cameras is a little rechargeable battery, that keeps the clock ticking. If your camera was a long time without power, perhaps this battery has died. I would buy a new set NiMH rechargeable or recyclo batteries, because they have a bit less capacity, but can hold power for as long as a year. Then charge them and leave the rechargeable batteries in your camera. Keep your fingers crossed, perhaps the little clock battery will be revived?
Common, Sony cameras don't add date stamp at the time you shot for conveniently edit after shotting. If you want toaddtime for your picture you can install itusingthe Sonyapplications software in the CD which comes with your camera, and there are faction of add date stamp, you can alsouse otherimage processingsoftwareto manually addtextand date,more flexible.
I'm sorry to inform you that the new cameras do not have the superimposing feature to add date and time on images automatically. This is because many customers do not want that feature.. However, these cameras come with exit technology. The exit technology write the date and time information in the picture as meta data.
You can use an exif compatible software to add date and time on images.
You can also the supplied picture motion browser software to add date and time.

I had a similar problem. I solved it by taking the rear cover off and reseating a ribbon cable that connects the switches to the main circuit board. This connector is hidden under a large plug in connector - also a large copper/plastic ground plane has to be removed for access.
have you check the settings for time and date have you saved it? You can also try to remove the cam battry for 2 mins. then put it back in then turn on the camera and then after few secs. turn it off, then see if the issue persist.
Sorry, don't know why Canon designed it this way, but it is only possible in "Postcard" resolution. This is true for all Canon models.
For those wishing to set their camera to include Date/Time stamp on the photos:
As mentioned, the date stamp only works in "Postcard" resolution. Press the "Func Set" button, then scroll down to the bottom to select postcard resolution.
Then press the menu button. Select the "Camera" menu, then scroll down to the the Date Time Stamp selection to turn it on.
you can only do date and time stamp under function button go to bottom where you can change size of pictures -go to right to W or wide-this is only setting you can do date time stamp on-when you change pic size and go back to menu you will see it highlighted and you can now turn it on-equals about a 2-3 megapixel size picture only-also just leave settings alone and have printer add it-date and time our always in pic data and most printers can add it
