It looks like the date battery has dried out, check your user manual and try to replace with a new button battery.

I have a red blinking clock that wont go away


Hello - It just means that your date/time has to be setup in the menu. It probably lost the time when you switched out batteries.

Turn the dial on the top of your camera to Setup and a Setup menu will appear. Go down to Date and set the date and time. when your finished move the dial back to the normal (image of camera) setting.

Thanks for using Fix Ya!

Can not set date on kadak easyshare c330


The camera should be able to have its date and time set through the menu and it should hold the date if you switch batteries. If it doesn't then the internal battery may have to be changed by a kodak service center.

The camera screen displays "Date/Time have been reset." What should I do?
This message appears if:
  • this is the first time that you have turned on your camera.
  • the battery has been removed for an extended period of time.
  • the battery is exhausted.
To set the date and time:
  1. Press the Menu button.
  2. Use the arrows to:
    1. Select the Setup menu.
    2. Select the Date & Time feature.
    3. Set the date and time.
  3. When you are finished, press the OK button.
For more information, see your camera user's guide for your camera
