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.)

Garmin forerunner 205 will not stay OFF and none of the buttons respond.


Yes you can restore your data from the TC after a hard reset. You have to go thtrough the setup menu like chose which language etc first.
Well I have exactly the same problem as you and a hard reset did not work either ...
Upgrading / downgrading the firmware also did not work.... the thing keeps on switching itself on regardless....
Do you have found out something more in the mean time?

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.

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.
