Sounds to me like the thin button battery that maintains memory and clock is rundown (or never been put in?). Put in a new battery!

Time/date won't retain


The camera's internal date/time "backup" battery is supposed to maintain the date/time for about 3 weeks with the camera turned off. If the camera is not used for a longer period, the date/time will need to be reset. If you are having to reset sooner than that, it is likely that the internal battery (not user replacable on most models) has failed.

Camera keeps loosing the time and date settings. When turning the camera on the lens does not open, then a screen asking to set the date and time settings appears - once date reset the camera works...


have you check the settings for time and date have you saved it? You can also try to remove the cam battry for 2 mins. then put it back in then turn on the camera and then after few secs. turn it off, then see if the issue persist.

Have to reset date and time every time I turn it on!


If you have to do that each time you shut it off and turn it back on try this. Take your memory card out and format your internal memory. Reset the camera and then re-enter the information. Shut the camera off and turn it back on and hopefully it will still be in there. If not then you have an internal memory error and that needs to be fixed by Casio.

Have to reset date every time I turn on camera.


You need to replace the date battery. It's a button-type battery (CR1220) which is in a holder near the regular batteries. After you pull the holder out, place the new battery into the holder with the negative side up, and slide it back into its slot. (Instructions are on page 120 of the manual if you have it.)

Clock always reset to default upon power up


Either the replacement battery was dead or the camera needs to be serviced. If the date/time needs to be reset every time the camera powers up, the camera is not receiving the power it needs from the date battery.

Set date and time comes up every time i turn on camera


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.

Cannot turn date stamp off and date keeps resetting


Try removing battery from camera then wait 10 seconds before installing. This action resets camera.

If no work, locate your camera software version. Procedure should be in manual, else could probably find it in a google search. Then locate latest version with a google search, or panasonic camera website, or call to customer service and ask.

It you do not have latest version, ask customer service how to download it.
