Question about Olympus Camedia C-740 Ultra Zoom Digital Camera

Camera looses date & time setting

The date and time setting resets itself to 1.1.01 occasionally. Other user settings remain stored. I understand this should only happen if batteries are removed longer than 1 hour. I use the camera daily and batteries are replaced regularly. They sometimes are low power,but, never unusable level. Wondering if there is an internal memory cell going bad.

There is a cmos battery (or a memory battery) on the main circuit that like any battery wears out eventually. If you are familiar with repairing electronic circuits you can get the part from Olympus. There is no part number just "memory battery for C-740" will suffice. Your other two choices are to take the camera to a shop where they can do the kob for you. Don't let them sell you a complete new board, you don't need one. Not for this problem anyway. Or you can ignore the problem and reset the camera (or not)each time you change batteries.

Can not set date on kadak easyshare c330

The camera should be able to have its date and time set through the menu and it should hold the date if you switch batteries. If it doesn't then the internal battery may have to be changed by a kodak service center.

The camera screen displays "Date/Time have been reset." What should I do?
This message appears if:
  • this is the first time that you have turned on your camera.
  • the battery has been removed for an extended period of time.
  • the battery is exhausted.
To set the date and time:
  1. Press the Menu button.
  2. Use the arrows to:
    1. Select the Setup menu.
    2. Select the Date & Time feature.
    3. Set the date and time.
  3. When you are finished, press the OK button.
For more information, see your camera user's guide for your camera

I have had my S9600 for 4 years, for most of that time, when i changed the batteries, all my settings remained the same. Now, when i change the batteries, every setting has returned to factory standard...

No internal battery. After the batteries are in the camera for 2 hours, there is enough charge in the camera to hold on to settings for 6 hours. If you take longer than that to install fresh batteries, the settings are lost. Here's what the manual says:

DATE/TIME

DATE/TIME

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.

CHANGING DATE. SET DATE INCORRECTLY WHEN USING 1ST TIME

I understand that you wish to change the date on your KODAK camera.;
Please go into the menu, camera settings, date and time.

You can also reset the camera: Take the batteries out for longer than 10 sec. reinsert and the camera automatically asks you to set date and time.

You have to change the 'date battery'. Use the user manual to find its location.

Time and date settings

Try resetting camera and then format the internal memory without the memory card installed. You will then have to re-enter the information but when you shut off and power back on it should remain in memory. If it doesn't then you will have to call repairs at 800-706-2534 and keep choosing option 2 and they will tell you where to send it.

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

The date time is controlled by another 'button' type battery in the camera- like a watch battery, there 'go' in time.
This is not a 'user' fixable item usually because it mean dismantliing the camera.
Sending away will be pricey- well on the way to the price of a new camera
So just live with it - I would

Camera time and date

Every time I use my camera after leaving it for 24hours I need to reset time date. Camera will not start until updated. I have a similar but intermittent problem - sometimes when restarting the camera it starts up but with all the default settings - I have to reset the time and the user 1 and 2 settings etc. I suspect that like many other cameras there is an internal battery that needs to be replaced after a couple of years - I'm going to bring it to a local repair place and have them run a diagnostic. If I get and answer I'll let you know. If anyone else has a possible solution let us know . Thanx

*ist-D date/time setting problem

I had exactly that problem with my first *ist D. Replace the AA batteries and the time was always lost. A new 'button' battery didn't fix the problem. The camera was replaced. The second camera had to be returned too. While I was with the dealer he told me my first camera wasn't really faulty as Pentax UK had been able to tell him how to fix it by some routine. I must admit I didn't listen hard to what he said, I was more interested in getting my hands on the third camera - and then the fourth when that didn't work either.
