Everytime I use my camera after leaving it for 24hours I need to reset time date. Camera will not start until updated.
Might be connected re chargable batteries loose charge if camera is in off position.
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 .

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.
Either the replacement battery was dead or the camera needs to be serviced. If the date/time needs to be reset every time the camera powers up, the camera is not receiving the power it needs from the date battery.
PROCEDURE 1. Initialize the system. a) Enter the TEST mode. b) Select "3:ROM UPDATE" and press SET button. c) Next, select "5:SYSTEM INITIAL" and press SET button. d) The following message appears. SYSTEM INITIALIZE START ... PUSH OK KEY? e) Press SET button and System is initialized. "SUCCESS !" appears on the monitor. 2. Write firmware. Update the firmware version" Write the firmware. If the TEST mode boots automatically, change "USB TCC ON" to "USB TCC OFF".
The Clock Battery
When the main battery is installed or an AC adapter is connected, the clock battery will
charge in about 10 hours. When fully charged, the clock battery can provide several
days of backup power. The language-selection dialog will automatically be displayed
when the clock battery is exhausted.
This is from the manual- but they do not say it is replaceable.
The following is from the manual which you can download on the link below:
So it seems that you must either keep the battery charged or leave the camera connected to the USB dock (with PC on)!
If your camera is not keeping the time for the 30 hours stated then it's probably time for a new battery.
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.
