Cannot turn date stamp off and date keeps resetting
If I set the date and turn the camera off, when I turn the camera back on the date is reset to 10/01/03 (mm/dd/yy)
I tried formatting and that didn't work.
I set date stamp = OFF and it still puts in the time noted above in the pictures.
Panasonic Lumix TZ3 digital camera....can't turn off date stamp from appearing in the pics. Any idea how?

Re: Cannot turn date stamp off and date keeps resetting
Try removing battery from camera then wait 10 seconds before installing. This action resets camera.
If no work, locate your camera software version. Procedure should be in manual, else could probably find it in a google search. Then locate latest version with a google search, or panasonic camera website, or call to customer service and ask.
It you do not have latest version, ask customer service how to download it.

When the battery dies there is an internal battery that will keep the device running so that all of the programs will still have functionability. Once that internal battery dies the date/time stamp resets back to the factory settings which is January 1, 2005. To keep this from happening you will need to install a time patch onto the device.
The date/time stamp only works in "Postcard" resolution. Press the "Func Set" button, then scroll down to the bottom to select postcard resolution.
Then press the menu button. Select the "Camera" menu, then scroll down to the the Date Time Stamp selection to turn it on.
Go to the Menu button, to the top right is what looks like a "tools" tab, go to this. Once you scroll down, you can select "reset all"--this will take off the date/stamp info. if you clicked it "on" previously. Be sure to update all your other settings such as red eye alert/check.

Try resetting your camera. In picture taking mode press menu. Go to setup, go up to reset, press right arrow, make sure reset is highlighted and press set.
Then TAKE OUT MEMORY CARD. Go back into menu, go to setup, go up to format, press right arrow and highlight format, press set. Input ur date and time again and then power off and back on. If that doesn't help then you have to send into repairs. 800-706-2534 and keep choosing option 2 and they will tell you where to send it.
