You need to replace the date battery -- a button-style battery, CR1220. This battery is in a holder which fits into a slot right next to the regular batteries. Pull the holder out and be sure (for this model) that the negative side is up when putting the new battery into the holder. (This is on pages 182 -183 of the manual.)

Does this camera have internal memory? Cannon EOS 600D Rebel T3i


It has some internal memory, for keeping track of things like the date and time. It does NOT have internal memory for storing photos.

I need to reset the date and time to the correct date and time. Cannon A520


Press the MENU button and use cursor-right to select the wrench-and-hammer icon. Use cursor-up/down to select the clock-and-calendar icon and press the SET button. Use cursor-left/right to move between fields, cursor-up/down to change them.

Full directions are in the "Setting the Date/Time" section of the manual (page 22 in my copy). If you need a manual, you can download one from the manufacturer's web site at

Date in camera menu resets to 00/00/0000 every time I remove battery to recharge it and meta data for each shot shows 01/01/1980 until I reset date in menu.


The back battery is faulty and it is important that to keep your date in order the battery needs to be replaced. You will need to open the camera to check the back up cell.

The time and date setting deeps erasing itself everytime my camera is turned off Cannon A480


This model isn't all that old but I suspect the internal "button" type watch battery has gone dead. This little battery is what keeps the date/time going when the camera is shut off and "normally" last upwards to five years from date of manufacture not date of purchase.

Reset Date and time


Hi,

yes its possible. Please remove the internal battery once and then put it inside after few minutes. This will reset the date time. while you switch it on once again. it will prompt you to enter new date and time.

Kodak z812 is problem


I had the same issue with my same brand/model camera for months. I used it maybe twice and then it decided not to turn on, no matter what I did. I finally got in touch with Kodak (the first time they told me to try different batteries, which of course did not help). I spoke with someone who figured out that I had a faulty memory card. When I removed my memory card, I was able to turn my camera on. I had to reset my date, but once I did that (still keeping the memory card out) I was able to take pictures just fine. Give that a try and see if it helps!

Another word of advice, if turns out to be your memory card, you'll need to purchase a new one. Kodak, of course, provides troubleshooting for their brand memory cards as well. Just an FYI.

Hope this helps!

If you've replaced the date battery, then the camera is defective. Being only a month old, first recommend seeing if your retailer will exchange it. If not, Canon will fix for free under warranty. Call 1-800-OK-CANON.
