Question about Fuji FinePix F10 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Date and Time always needs re-setting

Everytime I open the battery compartment to take out the chip to place in my computer, I need to re-set the time and date.  I think this is a new development, since I have been removing the chip prior to this and never had to re-set the time.  The camera is about 1 1/2 years old.  Does anyone know if there is anything I can do to repair this, or is the memory messed up.  It still takes photos and works well besides this problem.

There is a small button battery that maintain the 'clock' like all watch batteries they do go down.
A replacement will mean taking the camera part and is not a very good idea - live with it or bin it

When i shut off computer, time and date reverts to 2003 , new battery etc when turned back on msi ms 7235 ver 1.1

There is not a lot of info, but I'm gonna go with the choice of a laptop, since you say "new battery". There is also another battery in the motherboard, also, you need to set the date from within the BIOS, if you don't set it from the BIOS it will always revert back to the date of manufacture.

Have you encounter on your camera that the TIME and DATE are always cleared once you turning ON? Menu of the date setting appears everytime inserting the battery and turing the power ON?

Dont worry the problem of your camera is only a minor. For your technical information, all cameras have a capacitor together with board that provide power to save your date setting or its work as a battery.

Once you open you camera and you found out color green stain can be seen in the part of the said capacitor. You need to clean first by brush and make it sure be gently while brushing the capacitor just to remove the stain.Then try to turn On your camera and set the date and time, after this turn off and remove the battery for a second. Once again put the battery on your camera and turn On. Once you need to set the date again it means the capacitor was damage and need to replce new.

if you have knowledge about repairing electronics what you need to do is remove the damage capacitor and replace it new with the same specifiction and size.

I hope my tips will help you

Good luck and thank you

After booting always to F1

The F1 key is often a notice that something is not right in the part of the computer that runs before the operating system (i.e. Windows). What is wrong is usually displayed in the rest of the message. It might be that your "floppy" drive is not working (you may not even have one), or that the "date and time" are not set, or that the chip that sets up your system before Windows starts has been reset to incorrect settings for your configuration.

On most systems there is a key you need to push, usually the DEL key, as the system first starts. (It may also be the F10, F2 or F1) Push that key several times...about 1 time a you start the system. This should take you to the BIOS screen (BIOS being the name of the chip that runs everything before Windows takes over). In there you can look at the date and time...if they are not current, or close to current, your BIOS chip has a problem. If they are current, if you restart and carefully read the message that came up with the F1 key you will know where to look in the BIOS to fix the setting.

If the date and time are not correct you need to have the CMOS battery replaced. This is not the main laptop battery, but the little watch battery used to keep the date and time (and other settings needed) when you have shut the system off and/or disconnected the larger laptop battery.

If it's this problem...the time and date will probably want to take it into a shop and have them change the battery. The little CMOS battery is only a few dollars (under $10) and the labor should be reasonable if that's all that is needed.

Everytime I turn on my camera it asks me to set date/time. It goes to the default date/time setting of 00.00.0000 00:00 mm/dd/yy. What do I do to set the date/time so that it permanent? The photos are...

It takes around four hours for a freshly charged main battery to charge the internal backup battery. It you do that and it still doesn't charge it, you need a new internal battery. The fully charged internal battery in most of them will hold the charge for up to 3 weeks with the main battery out of the camera.

Everytime I turn on my computer, I have to do F1 and reset the time and date. How do I replace the battery? It has gotten so bad, sometimes I have to press and hold start button, turns off and restart it

Hi philco1977,

Good day. The BIOS prompts you to press F1 key and reset the time and date in your system. This is caused by a CMOS battery that needs to be replaced in your motherboard which is unable to save the time and settings in your computer. In order to replace the CMOS battery, you must open your computer and in the motherboard you may see a coin cell battery. You can take it out using you hand or you may use a flat screw driver or a knife. Make it sure that when you do the replacement the computer must be turned off. Once you are done with the replacement you may have to go again to the BIOS and reset the settings again including the time and date and it will never prompt you anymore to reset you time and date settings.

Clock always reset to default upon power up

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.

Date time setting does not program

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. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
