    Same problem...Started around Christmas 2007. Have to re-set the Date and Time on power up.

    My date and time has to be reset everytime I turn the camera on. As long as it is on, things are fine until it is turned off then it resets to another date. I have changed batteries with no results. Can turn the date off but when I turn the camera off and back on, the same thing happens, date is reset to an earlier date...usually 3/10/1993. I think the company needs to do a recall and make this right for all of us having the same problem.

What could be happening is the you mother board is bad already. Usually digital cameras like computers use a button cell battery inside to keep the bios in memory or the board uses the installed batteries to keep the bios in memory but at a very slow power consuption rate. Everything comes down to pretty much a bad circuit somewhere that is causing memory lost and high consuption of battery power.

Also i've noticed that a lot of people with this camera is having the same problem. This called be because of mass production you all could have a bad batch. Meaning your cameras came off the assembly line around the same time.

My D.C does not keep the date


Exit the menu that comes up about time & date when you turn it on. Then press the menu button, use the left navigation button, then scroll down to date & time, and set it there. For some reason when it comes up the navigation buttons won't let you set the time, but when accessed from the menu, it will.

Time & date reset


Very often the date/time is maintained by a very small watch type battery built into the main board - there is no opportunity to replace this.

Time and date


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.

Date & time


My camera will not turn on either. I have only used it a couple of times. This is my first time to buy a polariod. I hope we have a solution for this problem. It seems as thought many others are having the same problem, and no one is doing anything to help. Please reply with some sort of solution besides taking it to a pc store. I just bought this, I don't have a receipt, so what is the answer? Thankyou!
