Once you set date and time, it wont ask you again. I think you always cancel date and time settings, when it asks.

Do yourself a favor and get a memory card....they're not expensive and it will help you to avoid all the problems that the internal memory causes.

I have to reset date time etc everytime i turn camera on


If the Date/Time menu appears when the camera power is turned on, the date battery charge is low and the date and time settings have been lost. Please purchase a lithium coin battery (CR1220) and replace it as follows.

1. Confirm that the camera power is turned off.
2. Slide the memory card slot / battery cover lock and open the cover.
3. Hook your nail onto the date battery holder and lightly pull up.
4. Remove the battery holder in the direction indicated by the arrow. a570isbackupbatremove.gif 5. Remove the battery by pulling it up in the direction indicated by the arrow.
a570isbackupbat.gif 6. Insert a new battery with the (-) side facing up.
7. Replace the battery holder and close the memory card slot / battery cover.
8. When the Date/Time menu appears set the date and time.

You have to set the time and date every time you


There is a small backup battery inside a plastic holder in the battery compartment just below the memory card slot. You probably need to replace this battery.

No memory card, set time


The date/time battery is "built in" (not replaceable) to this model according to page 13 in the manual (available here). It is supposed to recharge when you have the regular battery installed, but if you leave the regular battery out for more than "approximately three weeks", the internal battery may go flat.

I'm not sure this has anything to do with the memory card issue, though. Check the battery problem by inserting a freshly charged battery, turning on the camera and setting the correct date and time, then turning off the camera and waiting an hour or so (with the main battery still in the camera). Turn the camera back on, and if the date and time have to be reset again, your internal battery may be bad, and the camera would need to be serviced.

Locked up


On my Moultrie MFG-DGW 2.1, I was unable to change settings etc... It seemed to be locked at the Date/Time screen. I powered off the unit, removed the memory card. Turned on the unit. Then I could change the settings. I made my changes, powered the unit off, reinserted the memory card, turned the unit back on and it read the card and I could make changes too. This happens from time to time. I just have to follow those steps to clear it.

Hope that helps.

No pixs


make sure the camera is saving to the SDMMC memory stick and not just to the camera itself. Might be best to try it out on your own computer or a friends to make sure it is saving the pictures correctly or not just to the cameras internal memory. As the card you pull out is generally considered an external memory source and in most cases has to be selected as the destination in which to save to.

thanks,
Nate

Casio Exilim Z57 Date and Language set up


OK, here's the fix. This camera has internal flash memory that is used to store settings and can be used for limited picture storage. Its use for saving setting is essential, however. If this gets corrupted then the camera won't save settings. Whoever said to format the internal memory had the right idea.

After much experimentation here's how. Remove your SD memory from the camera and turn it on. This will force it to run on the internal memory only. Run through the time/date/location setup again. It will complain about the memory card. Ignore this and press menu. Under Setup, select format. Choose format memory card and do it. This will format the internal memory. Once it is done, turn the camera off and back on. You'll notice that the problem is gone and it has remembered your last setup.
BTW, my camera is a EX-Z75. Not sure there is a Z57 model.
