Most likely the batteries need to be replaced, or they are being jostled and losing connection with the resistors in the battery bay.

Pentax k2000 won't save time and date


In most modern cameras is a little rechargeable battery, that keeps the clock ticking. If your camera was a long time without power, perhaps this battery has died. I would buy a new set NiMH rechargeable or recyclo batteries, because they have a bit less capacity, but can hold power for as long as a year. Then charge them and leave the rechargeable batteries in your camera. Keep your fingers crossed, perhaps the little clock battery will be revived?

After battery change on my 2001 avalon the time/date reset to default even I set the time/date correctly then turn off the ignition and turn back on again then the time/date reset to default again .


If some connections were changed then the ALWAYS ON +12 volt to the clock circuit back up is not powered all the time . check if while the battery was changed if there was any link that was disconnected that is the continuous supply to the clock.

Can't change date or time on my new Pentax K2000


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.

If you set the date during Green mode is on, then it will be reset. Turn the Green mode off first, then set the date.
