It is normal for the camera to lose time and date settings if the internal battery is left uncharged for an extended period of time; some cameras will default to the time-setting screen when turned on if this happens. Follow the steps below to resolve this issue.

  1. Turn off the camera.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • Insert a fully-charged battery pack into the camera.
    • If the camera is supplied with an AC power adapter, plug the adapter into a working electrical outlet and then connect it to the camera.
  3. Allow the internal battery that retains the time and date information to charge for at least 90 minutes.
  4. After enough time has elapsed to sufficiently charge the internal battery, turn on the camera.
  5. Set the time and date.
  6. Turn off the camera for 30 seconds.
  7. Turn on the camera again.
  8. Check to see if the date and time have been saved.

My guess as a tech, is the camera uses a SUPER CAP
to hold a charge so battery can be replaced in timely(nopun) manner (as in see low main battery and you the swap in the spare)

I think it is a rechargeable CR2032 that is wired to the board and re charges when the camera is in use.
Some early models had the CR2032 under a clip panel where the main battery is fitted.

Date/Time resets every time i turn on camera.

Hi, yes, there is a small coin memory battery, usually something like a CR3032 lithium battery. Turn off the camera and insert a new 'coin' battery (correct side up). Close battery cover, turn on camera and go to menu and set time and date. It should remember the time and date for a year or two, provided you put a regular battery on the camera on a regular basis. Also note, some older Sony cameras allow you to set it so that it shows only the date for the 1st 5 seconds when you first turn on the camera that day, then shuts it off unless you want it to superimpose the time and date on the video. Good luck, and let me know if this solves your problem. John

How to reset sony dsc-w90 to factory setting

Cyber-shot cameras nowadays have a built-in rechargeable battery for retaining time, date, and other settings. Since the built-in rechargeable battery is not removable, current Cyber-shot camera models can only be returned to the original factory settings by pressing a small RESET button on the camera or by using an Initialize option in the menu.

Older-model Cyber-shot cameras (prior to the year 2000) do not have a built-in rechargeable battery and do not have a RESET button or Initialize option in the menu. These cameras require a manual power reset.

IMPORTANT: To determine whether or not your camera has a RESET button or Initialize option, or for other model-specific information to complete any of the steps in this solution, refer to the operating instructions supplied with the product.

Follow the appropriate procedure below for your camera. Using an Initialize option in the menu
Since Cyber-shot cameras have different menu system layouts, refer to the instruction manual specific for your camera model.

Using a RESET button:
Locate the RESET button on the camera.
Use a pointed object (like a ballpoint pen) to press and hold the RESET button for 2-3 seconds.
After 2-3 seconds has elapsed, release the RESET button.

Performing a manual power reset:
Turn off the camera.
Remove the battery pack.
Remove the button-sized lithium battery.
Allow the camera to remain without power for 30 seconds.
Reinsert the button-sized lithium battery.
Reinsert the battery pack.
Turn on the camera.

If your camera is experiencing an issue and the issue is not resolved by performing the appropriate reset procedure above, then service may be required.

Hope this helps.

The flip out viewfinder display does not work. Does the coin sized lithium batteryhave anything to do with the display?

The coin size lithium battery is usually used to retain the settings .... e.g. date, time, preferences, etc.
So, it is not likely the cause of your flip LCD display not working

Setting date time

My A720IS would not retain date/time from new (Nov 2007).
Worried about sending back for warranty, I thought I would check it out myself, I opened battery cover, removed AA batteries, removed
lithium date/time battery which exposed 2 finger type electrical contacts which I gently pulled out very slightly with a paper clip shaped like small hook, this gave enough tension to contact lithium battery and has worked ok since. Maybe this will work for you too.
