The Memory Backup battery many need to be replaced. We recommend replacing it with any type of CR205 Lithium Ion Battery. Please consult your operator manual for detail instructions on Installing the Memory Backup Battery.

Date/Time resets every time i turn on camera.


Hi, yes, there is a small coin memory battery, usually something like a CR3032 lithium battery. Turn off the camera and insert a new 'coin' battery (correct side up). Close battery cover, turn on camera and go to menu and set time and date. It should remember the time and date for a year or two, provided you put a regular battery on the camera on a regular basis. Also note, some older Sony cameras allow you to set it so that it shows only the date for the 1st 5 seconds when you first turn on the camera that day, then shuts it off unless you want it to superimpose the time and date on the video. Good luck, and let me know if this solves your problem. John

Time/Date stamp doesn't show up...


this camcorder has a built in rechargeable battery for the memory of the date and time, if you do not use it for more than three months, it will discharge all the way; to recharge, you need to plug camera with ac power for 24 hours and the camera turned off. this should charge the internal battery complete.

What does a lithium battery do for a sony ccd-fx310 handycam?


That battery is only for the Time and Date, meaning that if the battery is dead or missing you will have to reset the date and time every time you record. When you turn off the camera the Time and Date go back to Zero!, replacing the battery will keep the time and date up to date.

I can not turn the day/date feature OFF on my Hitachi DZ mv550 camcorder


The instructions says there is a rechargable battery in the camera that maintains the date. It suggests that if the battery is exhausted the date and time will be reset (no definition of reset). It further says to connect the AC adapter/charger at least once every three months for 24 hours. You might try not using the adapter for three months and seeing if reset means no date/time at all or just 00/00/00. Steve

The "DEW" indicator is illuminated on my Viewcam, what do I do to turn it off?


This means there is moisture inside the Viewcam. Try taking the tape out, leaving the cassette compartment open for 2 hours to allow any condensation to evaporate. If the DEW indicator is still illuminated call a Sharp authorized servicer.

I can't get a picture on my television when I have my Viewcam connected into my VCR.


Make sure the Viewcam is connected (cable supplied) to an A/V input on your VCR. Set your VCR to the Line In or Auxiliary mode. Turn the Viewcam to Camera or VCR mode if playing back tape. Viewcam image should appear, if not call 1-BE-SHARP.
