Question about Canon PowerShot A80 Digital Camera

Canon PowerShot A80 loses date/time settings when turned off

After years of great service, my camera now will not hold onto its date/time setting - each time I turn it on I get the date/time dialogue and this problem is causing chaos with my photo collection (scrambled, rather than sorted by date/time!).

I can set the date/time or bypass the screen, but either way I see this every time I turn the camera on now. Please advise!

The camera has a watch battery inside that has expired. Many of the Canon Powershots have external access doors for replacement of this battery. Unfortunately though for the A80 it's not easy to replace. It's buried deep inside the camera behind the card reader slot. It can be viewed on page 4 of the following disassembly of a very similar A95:

Due to the complexity of accessing the battery, do NOT recommend that you try replacement yourself. Instead recommend that you continue to bypass on startup.

The date and time will not stay set. I set the date time . take pictures and when I shut the camera off. the next time I turn it on the date and time is zeros again...


The world of compact digital cameras is fast and furious blink and you'll miss the new model. These pocket point and shooters are cram packed full of features that most people neglect to utilize. So it's uncommon for the problem you describe to occur however it's simple and fairly inexpensive to repair. What you need is to replace the camera's internal battery which holds the custom functions and date time settings after the camera has been shut off. Normal internal battery life is greater then five years and a lot of my cameras go ten years before replacement. A camera store not your big box type but one that actually sells cameras and does film and print processing. I don't know where you are to even suggest someone. However at the bottom of the camera where you would place the memory card and batteries there is another slot for the internal battery. This link half way down the page will show the open battery door and where the internal battery is located.

There has been few complaints or problem with this camera except for the very weak internal flash.

How do I turn off the date and time stamp on my canon powershot sx110?


The menu on the camera controls the date and time stamp. Turn on the menu i camera mode, there are three choices, Camera, Settings and customize. Time stamp should be in the middle menu. Look for time settings and turn it off. All pictures have time and date always. The time/date stamp just makes it visible in the image.

Date and time will not display on downloaded or printed pictures


For the A80, this feature only works when direct printing from the camera. Read the section of the A80 User Guide dealing with DPOF printing to set this feature up (Page 141 and above). Here's the user guide direct from Canon:

No longer found on computer


It may be that the camera is out dated so if you go onto the canon website and find a plug in to down load to your computer then you should be able to run it
