Question about Canon PowerShot SX100 IS Digital Camera
Every time I turn on my SX100 IS the Set Date/Time screen appears. Looks like the date battery is dead. I want to replace it with a new one, but am having the hardest time trying to get the battery out. Any suggestions?
I had the same problem. Checked the battery...3V..good.
If you remove the screws holding the top bezel (on/off switch bezel - 2 screws on top back, 2 screws under the flash). Carefully lift the top bezel off. Remove the side piece where bateery is (2 screws - 1 on bottom and actual baterry cover screw). remove battery. Now remove screw holding the speaker in place. pull the speaker up and to the side. There are 2 sets of gray/black wires. Obviously one is for the speaker, the other is for the battery. I noticed on mine that the black wire from the battery was severed in half. Soldered back together and voila! it works again...no more enetering the time/date every time I turn on the camera. Be careful as you reassemble the bezel. You will notice that Canon did not leave a lot of room and used very thin wires. You should be good now!!!

This a pretty new model, the battery shouldn抰 die so quickly. Before going buy a new battery, check the old battery first. Refer owner manual page 191-192, take out the battery holder, if you have a volt meter, check the voltage should be around 3V. If you don抰 have a meter, just clean the battery with a dry soft cloth, and reach a small screwdriver inside the battery slot to bend the reeds a little bit(before doing this remove all the batteries,) carefully, don抰 break the reeds. The put bask the battery and set the time. If it won抰 solve the problem, now change the battery or ask for service.
