Question about Fuji FinePix S304 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Date/Time problem When changing the batteries, I have to keep reinstalling the correct date. Is there an internal battery that might need changed. It has never been run from a mains supply so could it just be that the internal battery (if there is one) has run down

    Replacing the internal battery seams a bit too much if a fiddle.

    The problem was largely solved when I used Energiser 'lithium' batteries to power the camera because they run the camera for months and months and hundreds of of photographs, so the time and date can be forgotten about for a very long time.

    Cheers.

I tried.. and work fine ... but just for a short time.
The real problem is not here but seems to be in an internal defect capacitor.

Hi all, same problem happened also with my S304. I' ve deassembled it and there IS an internal battery on one of the pcb's inside. So, i'm sure that if this is replaced by a new one, this problem should be fixed. Replacement will be a little bit tricky as the battery is soldered internally. If i have found the right type of battery, i'll post it, but this can take a little time ;-) F

Every time I power on my laptop, the date and time is set to years ago. I've changed it to the correct date and time a lot, turn it off when I'm done, but it goes back once I turn it back on. I have a...


You need to change the internal clock battery. It's referred as a CMOS battery or a system battery. It will most likely be a silver button cell...either a 2016 or 2032. You will most likely find it by removing the main battery and one of the bottom access covers. After you change it, boot up to Windows and change the time and date. It should now retain the settings.

Advent 5431 date keeps changing back to 2008


IS your TimeZone is Correct?
Right click on your clock, choose Adjust Date/Time.
Click Time Zone Tab. Make sure your Time zone is correctly set.


Boot into the BIOS (setup) screens and check the date and time there. If the date is off by years then that verifies you need a new CMOS battery. Do not confuse the CMOS battery with the large external battery you run the computer with.

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.

Hi. The clock on my Acer will not keep the correct time any more and it doesnt change dates on the calendar either. Do I need to change a battery in my motherboard?


If you change the BIOS date and time and when you boot up next time and the date and time has changed back or is incorrect, then the most likely fault is a flat BIOS battery. Replace the BIOS battery, it maybe a coin type lithium 3volt battery. this is the most common type used in motherboards is a CR2030 lithium battery.

Can't get the day of the week to go with the month and date


You have to set the calendar for the correct year. To see the year, you have to press the time & month/date buttons altogether. You will see the display change from month/day to year. Use the set+/Set- buttons to change the year to the correct calendar year. This will fix the day to work with the month and date.If you keep having this problem, you will need to change the internal battery. I hope this information help you with your problem.

Your internal CMOS battery(button battery) needs to be replaced. That keeps your date & time always working. Therefore when your main Battery runs out and external power is not present the date and time goes back to the date of manufacture.....sodeep

How do I change internal clock battery in sony trv68 hi8 camcorde


There is an internal battery, but it is a built in and I don't believe it can be removed. However there are clear instructions in the manual on page 69 that detail the steps you should go thru to recharge the exhausted lithium battery for the date.

Here's a link to the manual
