To determine if the battery is providing power to the CMOS, insert other changes to the bios besides time.
Like enable certain features and then power on, then turn off.
If the next time the date falters, go into the BIOS, and see if the changes you made are still there.

If they are, it is not your battery. If they are not, remove your battery, clean the terminals, (check the new battery is good) and reseat it.

michrophone may be related to the BIOS resetting. (solve one problem at a time)

Good luck. Don't forget to vote

My DSC Wt5500 Alexor Wireless keypad not keeping correct time even after changing batteries. Is there something in the programming I need to do to get it right? Thanks!


I am assuming that the keypad was successfully enrolled? Try to reprogram time. Time should be coming from the main unit and not the keypad itself.

*6
Master Code
1
24 hour time (ie 2pm= 1400)
Date Format mm/dd/yy

Keypad should confirm successful entry by beeping rapidly three times

press # a couple times to get out of programming

After exiting programming the display should come up within 30 seconds or so displaying the date and time before it goes back to sleep.

Why does the date/time on my L18 keep changing itself


This indicates that the built-in battery of the camera is damaged.(All digital cameras have a tiny built-in battery)

Replace that battery and you'll be OK. Don't ask me how to do that change. Get the manufacturer to point you to the location of that built-in battery or put it to a service centre.

Need to reset time and date every time I turn on camera.


The backup battery needs to be replaced. This small button battery (CR1220) provides the power for your camera to 'remember' settings when you change or remove the AA batteries. Instructions for changing this battery are in the manual on page 191 (US version of manual).
You can view/download the manual here.

Date resets back to 2001 after being powered off


Try changing the time and date in the BIOS and then save the changes and exit. Then turn the computer off.

Wait a few minutes then turn the computer back on and if the date resets back to 2001 then that means the battery on the motherboard is bad and would need to be replaced cause that means the BIOS isn't keeping information in memory.

The battery you would need is a cr2032 battery. Here is an enlarged image of the battery Im talking about:

The BIOS battery is nearly flat and this is causing the time to drift.

Turns itself off every time I try to take a photo


I had a similar problem with my Cyber-shot S600. It just turned off every time I tried to take a photo. I bought a Sony recharger + batteries and it fixed the problem. Camera works fine and I'm impressed with the how long the batteries last between charges.

I have a e system desktop the clock keeps running late


Computers have an internal battery on the motherboard that helpd the board retain certain data when the computer is off. If the battery is low or dead it will cause this problem. The easiest way to replace the battery is to open the side of the computer when it is off and remove the battery from the battery holder on the motherboard. The battery looks just like a watch battery. Replace it with the same kind of battery (available at most drug stores) once you have replaced it turn on your computer and reset your clock.

Wrong date on the radio.


RESETTING THE CLOCK AFTER A TOTAL MEMORY LOSS

If you do not change the built in lithium battery within a reasonable period of time after you see the ‘flashing’ LOW BATT. warning indicator, the lithium battery may become exhausted and will no longer be able to supply back up power to the SmartSet internal computer.

If the unit is disconnected from the AC outlet after the battery is exhausted, or if a power interruption occurs, the SmartSet memory will be lost and the clock will need to be reset when the power is restored. Be sure to install a fresh lithium battery before you reset the clock, otherwise the clock will need to be reset each time the power is interrupted.

If the lithium battery is exhausted and you experience an interruption in the AC power supply, the clock will reset itself to its initial default setting when the power is restored.

The initial default setting is “12:00 AM, Saturday, January 1
(1 1), 2005”.

If you notice that the time on your SmartSet clock radio is completely incorrect, and the day indicator is also wrong, press the MONTH/DATE button to see the date. If the date display is showing “1 1” (January 1 ), you probably experienced
a total memory loss. To reset the clock after a total memory loss, proceed as follows:

1.) Install a new CR2430 lithium battery in the battery compartment.

2.) Connect the radio to your AC outlet and let the clock set itself.

3.) Depress the MONTH/DATE and TIME buttons together. The display will change from ‘time’ to ‘year’. While holding the MONTH/DATE and TIME buttons, press the UP button to
set the display to the correct year, then release the buttons.

4.) Depress the MONTH/DATE button. The display will change from ‘time’ to 'month/date’ (mm/dd). While holding the MONTH/DATE button, press the UP button to set the display
to the correct month and date. The Day indicator will change automatically as you adjust the month/date settings. When the correct month and date appear on the display, release the buttons.

5.) Depress the TIME button and the UP button to set the display to the correct time. Be sure to confirm that you have set the time correctly to ‘AM’ or ‘PM’ by observing the AM indicator.

6.) After you set the time, reconfirm that the Day, and Month/Date displays are still correct. Make final adjustments if necessary.

The SmartSet clock memory is now reset and the new lithium battery will maintain it for the next 5 to 8 years, depending on the number and duration of the power outages you experience.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
After resetting the clock, don’t forget to reset your wake up times, and alarm mode settings, and sleep timer settings as well.
