    I have the same problem and would like to know how to fix it. i never had to do this before

    Every time I turn my Polaroid A500 on it goes to the date 10/01/03. I'll reset it, but it does save the setting. If I press "ok" after truning the camera on, it clears the date and I can continue taking photos until I turn it off again. Also, the photos I am taking are showing up in random order, never in the order they were taken. All this started at the same time, sometime around 9/2007. Other than this problem, the photos are okay.

There is a small 3volt battery soldered on the main board that needs to be replaced. It has a yellow band around it, unless you can replace it yourself it's not worthwhile. If you decide to replace it beware of the flash capacitor charge.

I fixed the same problem all of you seem to be having with your A500 camera, with no solution from Polaroid (the date setup popping up each time I open my camera and all the photos not being in order) - I pitched it, went out and bought another camera with another name. I gave one to my daughter-in-law and the same thing happened to hers within one week of my problem. Shame on Polaroid for not offering their customers a solution to this problem or compensating us in some way! NO MORE POLAROIDS FOR ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It might be something with the mode. I am trying to turn the date stamp off, and on the factory setting, the basic mode is on. Any advanced settings options disappear when my Polaroid i634 is set back to original settings. Slowly over time, the settings changed, and I don't know how. Somebody just clicked buttons, and all of a sudden, it was a more advanced camera w/ ISO settings, date stamp on/off settings, and what-not.

MyCats had the best solution. In my case, ABC Warehouse (Seller) called and asked me if I wanted an extended Warranty. Since it was still in warranty I said no. Guess what happened after the Warranty expired? Yep, the date stuck at 01-01-2003. It's almost if ABC knew something might happen. But then don't they make money on the warranties?

To set the date and time, select the "M" button and then press the 3:00 o'clock position on the circle button five times. On the page called "Setup", press the 6:00 o'clock position to 'down arrow' to Date/Time. I noticed each time you change your batteries, you have to reset this info. I hope this info helps someone!

    We know how to set the date and time -- we have to do it every time we turn the darn camera on. The problem is that the camera loses the date and time we've set every time it's turned off, not that we don't know how to set it in the first place. I say "we" because I'm having this problem, too -- starting maybe the 10th time I turned the camera on. Thanks anyway.

Sanyo put date on pictures


The date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every picture in its EXIF metadata. Any photo viewing/editing program should be able to display this data. To print this data, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your pictures. Depending on the program and printer you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

Cannot see what im shooting and on lcd screen,no picture jus black. It shows numbers timer everything else except picture. In play mode everything works fine.


I have 2 xelim camaras. One of which has a piece of some type of cover partially obstructing the view. This camara still displays the time and menus and older pictures. If I take pix now the picture is obscured. The other camara has no picture on the display but when I take a picture it turns out just fine. That camara will need disassembled and a connector hooked back up

Most screens on digital camaras are for aiming the camara and output (displaying the picture) therefore any problems with the screen do not translate to a picture.

My digital camara will not save pictures. Messages appear.


If you are using SD memory card, it can be locked. Take out your memory card, on the left side there's a switch. Turn switch up and try again. Hope this will work.

Digital camara and memory card


Basically picture files in memory card have corrupt data that's why computer doesn't recognize it.
HP recommends following action...
Close the HP Image Zone or HP Photosmart Software, disconnect the camera from the computer, and reset the camera. (can see this at HP Support)
2nd option is to find some memory card data recovery software on internet and use it to correct data files in memory card.
Thank you.
