You should not lose the time/date if you replace the batteries within a minute of two. I've gotten pretty good at changing the batteries in my 850Z and rarely have to reset the time and date.

And if you have a DC transformer connected to the camera while replacing the batteries? Do you still have to reset the time and date?

The manual states that when you change the batteries, you will have to reset the date and time; this is normal operation for this camera (though it is a pain!!!)

There is a small watch like battery in ALL digital cameras. When that battery dies, you loose the settings. Sometimes the camera wont work at all.

Uploaded pictures are out of order


After downloading the photos to your computer then click on Date created at the top of the your picture folder. The photos will the sort by the date the photos were taken starting from the earliest date. If you click on Date created again it will sort by the latest date the photos were taken.

Why do I lose date/time on Fuji FinePix S6500 digital camera when I change batteries


You lose the date/time because the camera has no power to it to keep the settings. Basically don't leave the batteries out if you want it to keep the date/time. On the other hand it will just sit and run the batteries down just sitting there off. It is a bit annoying but that's why. Most cameras store an internal charge so they can keep the date/time but it is not supposed to last very long, it was designed so you could swap out dead batteries without having to reset the time/date every time. If it is happening on simple battery changes it means something may be wrong with the camera.

Two things....my approx.18 month old battery died and i bought a replacement yesterday. is this the normal life expectancy? 2nd. Today, with a totally charged battery, I took eight pictures. Later I...


To answer your questions, depending on how much use, (meaning how many snap shoots) will dictate whether your camera has reached its life expectancy. The proper procedure for long life with the battery is to have it totally drain out before charging it. If charged too soon the battery has a memory and will only work as long as the short period the battery was charged. It sounds like camera is worn out. Good Luck

Reset Date and time


Hi,

yes its possible. Please remove the internal battery once and then put it inside after few minutes. This will reset the date time. while you switch it on once again. it will prompt you to enter new date and time.

My M863 changes the date intermittently to a random date & if I don't see the date when turning on the camera it dates the pic's incorrectly. Thanks.


hello,

Everytime you removed the battery of your camera, date and time will be reset. You have to set the date and time correctly.

Follow the steps below.

1.Press the Menu button.
2.select the Setup Tab, it has camera w/ tool icon
3.Scroll down until you select Date and Time
4.Press Ok then set the date and time.

Thanks.

Pic is red


if you mean a redie orange hue, check the white balance settings

if you mean very red, eg green and blue missing it may be faulty or have crashed, perform a full reset, and remove all batteries (main and backup if it has one) for a couple of hours and try again

Power Shot SD550 Date Stamp


Dear BethSmith,
I have had the same problem for a long time.  It has nothing to do with the battery, etc..  It has to do with the software of the camera.

You are only able to have time stamps on the photos when you are in the postcard mode.  (resolution will be set to 1600x1200, at fine setting)  Check out page 29 and 39 of Advance user manual!

Good luck,
Shah
