The camera always asks for the date and time settings to be re-entered every time it is switched on. Is there a solution for this?

The date battery needs to be replaced. It is a coin-type battery, CR1220. It fits in a holder that slides out from the bottom of the camera, opposite the side from the battery cover for the regular batteries. When putting the new battery in the holder, the negative side of the battery should be visible. Illustrated instructions are on page 87 of the Advanced User Guide.

I have to set the date everytime I switch it on


On this camera you have a supplemental litte battery that is just beside the AA batteries. If you pull on the little tab that says CR 1220 you will find a battery that looks like a battery watch. Just replace it, go back into your date/time settings and you should be good to go! It worked for me!

The camera's clock battery has worn out. Unfortunately, on most Canon SD series, this battery is not user serviceable. Recommend contacting Canon to see if they'll replace it, hopefully at a reasonable cost. 1-800-OK-CANON

Camera Canon A710 IS started to ask set time date when turned on


When the camera is left without power for an extended period of time, the time and date settings are gone. You need to reset them and when you're finished, click the set/ok button twice.

Date/time screen always shows up upon startup. Does not remember date/time entered.


Your camera needs a small CMOS battery replacement which saves date, time and maintains these settings even when your camera is off. Look on to the sides of the camera, there will be a small rubber flap which has this battery. You need to replace this small coin-like battery. This battery is not the same as you always use/charge. If you can't locate the small battery, you will find more information in the camera Manual in troubleshooting or camera diagram.

Well, I have the same problem. Just introduce once the date and time. Turn off the camera. then turn the camera on using the button for presentation of pics (right arrow). You will see the last picture taken. Press again and you will be in shoot mode. The date and tame will be there. It is a bit fuzzy but works,

Date time setting does not program


There is not an option to remember the date/time when you power off the camera. The camera should always remember the time. If it forgets the setting when you power it off then your backup battery has gone dead. Check your manual to see if it is something you can replace yourself. I am not familiar with this camera specifically but some cameras make the backup battery accessible and some require disassembly. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
