Try to use menu and settings. Also, date stamp can be used only in very low resolution images, change your image resolution and quality back to this large/superfine setting. And you can find the information related to date stamp in user guides. Look for them here Canon Camera user guides and owners manual
How to reset a Cyber-shot® digital still camera back to original factory settings.
Cyber-shot cameras nowadays have a built-in rechargeable battery for retaining time, date, and other settings. Since the built-in rechargeable battery is not removable, current Cyber-shot camera models can only be returned to the original factory settings by pressing a small RESET button on the camera or by using an Initialize option in the menu. Older-model Cyber-shot cameras (prior to the year 2000) do not have a built-in rechargeable battery and do not have a RESETbutton or Initialize option in the menu. These cameras require a manual power reset. IMPORTANT: To determine whether or not your camera has a RESET button or Initialize option, or for other model-specific information to complete any of the steps in this solution, refer to the operating instructions supplied with the product. Manuals are available online in the Manuals/Specs/Warranty section of the Sony® eSupport Web site. Follow the appropriate procedure below for your camera. Using an Initialize option in the menu Since Cyber-shot cameras have different menu system layouts, refer to the instruction manual specific for your camera model. Using a RESET button
Locate the RESET button on the camera.
Use a pointed object (like a ballpoint pen) to press and hold the RESET button for 2-3 seconds.
After 2-3 seconds has elapsed, release the RESET button.
Performing a manual power reset
Turn off the camera.
Remove the battery pack.
Remove the button-sized lithium battery.
Allow the camera to remain without power for 30 seconds.
Reinsert the button-sized lithium battery.
Reinsert the battery pack.
Turn on the camera.
If your camera is experiencing an issue and the issue is not resolved by performing the appropriate reset procedure above, then service may be required. The Sony® eService Web site at http://eservice.sony.com/ can assist you in obtaining service from a Sony Service Center or locating a Sony Authorized Servicer.
Not 100% sure about this model, but most have another battery in the camera for the clock functions. That battery could be low.
Try looking in the manual for the clock battery and pull that and replace it. See if that helps.
Date/time are set at "first use" or through the tools menu. Remove the batteries. Leave the camera overnight, this may be enough to lose the current settings and allow setting new date/time.
Press Menu button. Press right arrow on the 4-way controller to get the Tools (spanner) highlighted. Press down arrow to get to date (or time). Press right arrow Now set to your preferred format.
If this does not work, try changing another item in the Tools menu. If that change is not accepted, then it's into the dealer.
In many cameras these settings depend on the shooting mode. Did you change the shooting mode? If so, return to your normal shooting mode and the function should be available again.
If this doesn't fix your problem I need to know if you have your camera's user manual. If I can find the solution in your user manual I need to know if you can read the steps in your own manual or if I need to provide you a link to read the manual online.
My A720IS would not retain date/time from new (Nov 2007). Worried about sending back for warranty, I thought I would check it out myself, I opened battery cover, removed AA batteries, removed lithium date/time battery which exposed 2 finger type electrical contacts which I gently pulled out very slightly with a paper clip shaped like small hook, this gave enough tension to contact lithium battery and has worked ok since. Maybe this will work for you too.
you must have better knowledge of image editing tools like photoshop etc. with the help of those you can remove the date from the original photographs you already taken or you can do some beautiful border work to hide those date time with Ulead Photo Impact.
