Re: Date/Time Reset Every Time I Turn the Camera On
Open up the battery door of your camera. There's a little slide drawer labeled CR1220. Use your fingernail or small screwdriver to pry and slide it open. This little button battery runs your camera's clock. Remove and reinstall it to see if that fixes it. If not, time to buy another battery. The CR1220 battery is very common, inexpensive ($2 to 3), and available at most stores (try your local drugstore). Take the old battery with you to the store to make sure you buy the right one.

Inside the battery compartment, right beside the AA batteries, there's a tiny little door labeled CR1220 (see this picture). Pry the door open with your fingernail, remove the little button battery located there, and take this battery down to your local drugstore to buy a replacement camera clock battery. Remember, it's a "CR1220" battery. It should cost only about $4.
It's important to set the date and time so that pictures and videos are organized by the date taken. The date and time procedure varies slightly between camera models, but generally:
Turn on the camera.
Press the Menu button. If you see a Setup tab, press the Right arrow button to highlight the Setup tab. If you don't see a Setup tab, press the Down arrow button to select Setup, then press the OK button.
Press the Down arrow button to choose Date and Time (or similar), then press the OK button.
Press the Right/Left arrow buttons to move between year, month, and date. Press (or press and hold) the Up/Down arrow buttons to scroll through the year, month, and date. Use the same procedure to set the time.
When finished, press the OK button.
NOTE: If your KODAK Camera has a touchscreen, the same principles apply. Tap the Menu icon, Setup, then Date and Time (or similar).
1. Press MENU to enter SET UP menu.
2. Press right or left arrow to reach the settings.
3. Then go on to view the menu
4. Find Reset Camera Settings.
5. Reset your camera.
6. Turn on the camera
7. Date/Time settings will appear.
8. Set your date/time.
The date stamp only works in "Postcard" resolution. Press the "Func Set" button, then scroll down to the bottom to select postcard resolution.
Then press the menu button. Select the "Camera" menu, then scroll down to the the Date Time Stamp selection to turn it on.
The date will only show up on the picture under a limited set of circumstances on the Canon PowerShot digital cameras, of which the A540 is one. You've probably found the Date function in the menu, but discovered that it was off, grayed out, and skipped over whenever you tried to reset it.
Date stamp will only work in "Postcard" mode. Press the Function button (labeled "FUNC SET"), then press the down button until you reach the Recording Pixels selection (usually labeled "L", but not always). It's probably the bottom onscreen selection. Use the right or left buttons to select Postcard, then press the Function button again.
Press the Menu button and scroll down to Date Stamp. Now you should be able to select "Date" or "Date & Time" with the right or left button. Press Menu again and take your pictures.
Try resetting your camera. In picture taking mode press menu. Go to setup, go up to reset, press right arrow, make sure reset is highlighted and press set.
Then TAKE OUT MEMORY CARD. Go back into menu, go to setup, go up to format, press right arrow and highlight format, press set. Input ur date and time again and then power off and back on. If that doesn't help then you have to send into repairs. 800-706-2534 and keep choosing option 2 and they will tell you where to send it.
