Lately, whenever I change batteries on my fourish yr old C750, I lose all of my camera settings. It reverts back to the factory ones, Is there a backup battery or internal power supply somewhere in the camera to preserve my settings while the main batteries are being changed out? Any help is appreciated.
Http://www.pbase.com/ociepka/750 Here you can see how to change the wrong capacitor. I can fix it and want to buy a few so I can resell them in Belgium or the rest of Europe because I only need one. Only the shipping cost is high. 2 euro for one capacitor but 25 euro shippingcosts.

You lose the date/time because the camera has no power to it to keep the settings. Basically don't leave the batteries out if you want it to keep the date/time. On the other hand it will just sit and run the batteries down just sitting there off. It is a bit annoying but that's why. Most cameras store an internal charge so they can keep the date/time but it is not supposed to last very long, it was designed so you could swap out dead batteries without having to reset the time/date every time. If it is happening on simple battery changes it means something may be wrong with the camera.
1) If your battery is charged separately (removing out of the camera) then try to plug in the contact properly, move it there and back to see if the indicator light changes its color. Sometimes cheap batteries, or chargers lose contact - you should open, find any lose contact and fix. For fixing lithium batteries rubber gloves and eye-protecting glasses are compulsory.
2) If your battery is charged inside of the camera - try to open the camera with a screwdriver and check for any lose contact, move it there and back until some indicator shows that the battery is finally charging. If you can't fix it yourself - a specialized mechanic will help you. Don't be afraid to bring him a disassembled battery.
3) If you conclude that the battery is dead - buy a new one on ebay.com or elsewhere. Remember that original manufacturer's batteries are sometimes more reliable but much more expensive than non-original batteries.
All the battery have a life time fixed working hours. Your battery is charged but he complete is working time. Thats why these msg will come. Dont warry use the battery when you see the power going down after a while of charging then change the battery and buy new 1. Good luck.
Thanks, i am waiting for your feed back & if you satisfied then thumps me please.
Ok the SxIS series has another battery which is used for the date and other important data like settings and stuff. This is usually a small battery like a CR1002 the flat ones to be exact. Try changing that one and see how it goes.
The exposure compensation stays where you leave it unless you do a full reset or a custom reset, and except when you're using scene modes. But you don't need to do a reset to cancel out an exposure compensation -- simply use the exposure compensation button to adjust the compensation back to 0.0EV.
this camera has an internal clock battery, which must keep the date or any other related information while you changing the batteries, the problem is, since you camera is pretty old, the clock battery is probably long dead, it can be changed, but it will require disassembling and resoldering
