Your camera has an additional small battery inside which lasts about five years and is solely for the purpose of maintaining the cameras memory functions. It's not meant to be user replaceable and normally lasts longer than the camera does so is not routinely replaced. Like almost all EasyShare models, the camera was never designed to be repairable in any event.

The battery itself will be a fairly cheap watch-type battery (sorry, I cannot find any resources which identify the exact type), but having it professionally fitted will cost more than the camera is worth. You can therefore either choose to do without those functions or to risk opening the camera yourself to locate and replace the battery but as there are no servicing manuals in the public domain you'll have to work out how best to do so yourself. If you have some experience of similar jobs and are of a practical nature then you should be able to do the job fairly easily, but ensure that you use an earthing strap attached to your wrist or ankle to avoid static electricity damage whilst fiddling around inside the camera.

Good luck, I hope you manage to use this information to fix your camera. Please take a moment to rate the free answer I have provided for you and any testimonial which you might wish to add is always welcome!

My system time and date is not set

Go into the BIOS settings then to the Date and Time and set the Date and Time, Save the settings and Exit.
IWhen you boot up later and the Date and Time is incorrect then the BIOS battery is flat and a new replacement battery is needed. The BIOS battery keeps the laptop's configuration plus the Date and Time settings unless the battery is flat.

I can't find out how to put a date stamp on my photos using my Kodak EasyShare Z612. I take lots of photos of my cattle and would like to put a date stamp on them at times.

The date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every picture in its EXIF metadata. Any photo viewing/editing program should be able to display this data. To print this data, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your pictures. Depending on the program and printer you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

My monitor won't come out of power save mode. How do I get it out of power save mode?

Problem is not with Dell E197FP LCD Monitor, it happens sometime and the culprit usually is an empty battery on the motherboard. The motherboard battery is used when the mains power is off. When your computer detects an empty battery, it goes into a low-power mode.
The computer will then display as message, like "Power save mode - press any key on keyboard or move mouse".
Better to replace battery:-

  • open the case of your computer;
  • visually scan the motherboard for a button-cell battery (it looks like a digital watch battery, but a bit larger);
  • remove this motherboard battery from your computer;
  • restart your computer: it should now power up normally (you may get some warning messages but ignore them);
  • set the date and time of your computer using the "Date and Time" control panel;
  • you can now use your computer normally, but you will lose date and time settings when you disconnect the computer power cord, since there is no motherboard battery present to store them;
  • replace the battery or buy new;
  • install the new battery in your computer;
  • restart your computer, and set the date and time again; the settings will now be saved using motherboard battery power.

Need to set date and time at each starting. have changed 1220 battery what could be the reason

It sounds like you or the camera is not saving the settings. Refer to your manual for a step-by-step setting of the time. You're probably just not hitting some "save" key.

Camera resets DATE and Time to Jan 2002 when

Some of these cameras cannot save the date, and has no internal battery to save the data. The best solution I have use is to buy another battery with these kinds of cameras and always have one charging, or take two batteries when you take pictures.
These older point and shoot cameras are nice, and slower than the newer ones, but will not save the data unless you keep the main battery in it, or replace the one to be charged with another battery within a very short time.

My computer's bios doesn't save anything

Here's the manufacturer info link

BIOS Loses Date and Time (or Changed Settings Not Saved)
A coin-cell battery (CR2032) powers the real-time clock and CMOS memory. When the voltage of the CMOS battery drops below a certain level, the BIOS Setup program settings stored in CMOS RAM (for example, the date and time) might not be accurate. If you find that date and time is incorrect or if you make BIOS setting changes but they are not saved, replace the battery with an equivalent one. Caution Risk of explosion if the battery is replaced with an incorrect type. Batteries should be recycled where possible. Disposal of used batteries must be in accordance with local environmental regulations.
To replace the battery, follow these steps:
  1. Turn off all peripheral devices connected to the computer. Disconnect the computer’s power cord from the AC power source (wall outlet or power adapter).
  2. Remove the computer cover.
  3. Locate the battery on the board. battery1.jpg
  4. With a medium flat-bladed screwdriver, gently pry the battery free from its connector. Note the orientation of the “+” and “-” on the battery.
  5. Install the new battery in the connector, orienting the “+” and “-” correctly.
  6. Replace the computer cover.
