Date and time etc

The date and time have to be set everytime I turn the camera on. The light does not work and the remote does not work. I have replaced the remote battery. This camera has just returned from JVC where other faults were fixed.

    Sandrew,
    thanks for your reply. As I said I have replaced the cr2025 battery in the remote. Is there an internal battery in the camera and if so how do I access it.
    Thanks Chris Rowe

    Hi Yes that is the problem. As I said I have just received this camera back from JVC and one of this was one of several problems. The light remote and clock still don't work. if I take it apart the warranty is void but sending it back to the supplier and JVC means another two months. Very frustrating. I am looking for a new camera now any recommendations?

The CR2025 Lithium battery, holds the date and time in it's memory and is neccassary for the remote control to work. The CR2025 Type Lithium battery needs replacing. That should sort it. Please rate this solution

    Apologies, yes there is an internal clock battery, but where it is i do not know, normally it tells you in the manual, but in this camera's case it says refer to a JVC dealer.

I have to reset date time etc everytime i turn camera on

If the Date/Time menu appears when the camera power is turned on, the date battery charge is low and the date and time settings have been lost. Please purchase a lithium coin battery (CR1220) and replace it as follows.

1. Confirm that the camera power is turned off.
2. Slide the memory card slot / battery cover lock and open the cover.
3. Hook your nail onto the date battery holder and lightly pull up.
4. Remove the battery holder in the direction indicated by the arrow. a570isbackupbatremove.gif 5. Remove the battery by pulling it up in the direction indicated by the arrow.

8. When the Date/Time menu appears set the date and time.

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.

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.

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.

The date and time start up appears everytime i turn on.

Set the date and time at least once... if it still keeps coming up when you change the batteries the back up battery/capacitor has failed... my old kodak does that so i know the frustration but it's still a good camera

Can't get the Date off the Pictures

First you have to go to the set up menu and set the correct time and date, then you can go back to the settings and select OFF for time and date. If you do not set the correct time and date , that default date stays in the picture.

Won't set date and time

Greetings bpm123,

My suggestion is to simply turn the date time stamp off in the setup menu. In reviewing the instruction manual, it appears you can obtain instructions on how to do this starting on page 21.

I hope this helps!

Thank you,

Dorothy

Date time setting does not program

There is not an option to remember the date/time when you power off the camera. The camera should always remember the time. If it forgets the setting when you power it off then your backup battery has gone dead. Check your manual to see if it is something you can replace yourself. I am not familiar with this camera specifically but some cameras make the backup battery accessible and some require disassembly. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
