Question about Fuji FinePix A210 Zoom Digital Camera
The date on my camera will not stay set. When I change the batteries, I have to reset everything. Any ideas?
Hello, This is a problem with the back-up battery on the camera. Inside of it, near the mainboard there is a small coin like battery that powers on a memory chip storing those data. As it is empty or has a problem with it's connector to the mainboard, it could need to be changed. If you want I could instruct you on how to dissasemble the camera but I strongly don't recomand a DIY repair because in the process you might damage the lens assembly wich is a verry delicate mechanism. Any camera service will do the job fine and quicklly. It isn't an expensive repair neither and it's the safest way. Please reply if you need more info.

Tips for a great answer:
OKOK:At the time of purchase and after leaving the camera for a
long period with the batteries removed, settings such as the
date and time are cleared. Once the AC power adapter has
been connected or the batteries have been installed for 2
hours or more, the camera settings will be retained for
roughly 6 hours even if both sources of power are removed.
