    Hi. I've got the same problem with my fuji finepix S5500. It's 4 yrs old, and has recently been dropped. I can't set the time because it'll not respond to any buttons. When powered up it says: Date/Time not set. I was guessing that one button was stuck, but none of them seems to be stuck, and I think it would continiously beep than.
    It's been dropped earlier too, and we had no problems. I'll try to find out where the battery is at, and try to replace it. If you have any other ideas what might went wrong please let me know at dibloff at yahoo dot com. Thank you.

Set date and time and camera should work. If camera asks to have date set everytime you take batteries out then the memory 3 volt battery is flat ... replace.

How do I remove the date stamp from all my holiday pictures taken with my DMC-SZ3

The date display option can come from your camera or the software programme you use to view. Start with the software and disable the date & time display function. If this doesn't work then go into the camera menu and in the display setting change the date & time to either disable or none.

    Says date/time not set but wont let me set the time or date!

    Broken keypad ribbon. It's because the keypad ribbon is folded over twice and the creases split over time. have a look at my tips page for this problem. It won't help you much I know and the only solution is a replacement membrane.

    Display date & time on developed pictures

    When you say it's displayed on the screen, do you mean while it's in playback mode, it's embedded there?

    If not, you will have to put your resoltion in postcard mode and make sure in menu that your date or date/time stamp is turned on.

    To get to your resolution settings, turn camera on to shooting mode, hit function/set button and arrow down to the bottom left corner where it will show your resolution (L,M,S, etc) and this is where you will find postcard mode.

    This setting is the only one you can use date time stamp and will show up in prints, but only good for 4 x 6 prints, anything larger will not be good resolution, it will be pixelated because it's only enough quality for a small print.

    Hope this helps!
