Why does my camera not hold the date and time?

EVERY time I turn on my camera a screen comes up asking me to set a date and time. I do so, it says the date and time is as I set it. However, when I turn it back on the same screen comes up. When pictures are downloaded in my computer. the time is set to 1980!!

Glad to have found the answer - I didn’t even know there was a battery there!

Thank you!! This was starting to annoy me.. Fixed on my powershot s5is, battery was tucked away beside my other battery's.. Didn't even know it was there

par

The date /time battery compartment is right beside the 3rd AA battery in the camera. It says CR1220 - that is the size of the tiny battery that goes in there. Hope this helps.

Thanks! I figured it out finally.

@darla this is common once the RTC (real time clock) battery is depleted. your camera will not remember the time and date without this battery. Changing it by using this guide should resolve this issue.

Great. They should have put a memo in the box with the camera. Thanks.

It's been so long since I've used my A540 that I'd completely forgotten about the RTC battery, but that's what the problem was, all right. Thanks for the reminder!

par

I've done this and it's still not working. Any other suggestions?

par

When you say "not working," do you mean it still asks for the time and date even after you've replaced the battery? I can only suggest that you make sure the battery is fresh and that you insert it right side up. If the camera works otherwise, I can't think of what else it might be.

par

Yes, I meant the date and time still do not work. I've checked the battery with a voltage meter and it definitely works. I've reinserted the battery multiple times, looking at the pictures above and other sources.

I'm stuck.

Had the same problem with my Canon Powershot SX20 IS. Found this little battery compartment that holds the CR1220 on the bottom of the camera inside where the main batteries are installed. Just open the bottom battery compartment and you will see the small little part you need to slide off. You may need a small flathead screwdriver. Hope this helps someone else out there.

Try changing the tiny battery on the left side, on the top, pry open w/ your fingernail and replace this. I found this info doing a search online mine said CR-1220, its like a button battery, hope this works for you!

I replaced the battery. It still does the same thing.

OK. The battery must be inserted into the guide flat down. Now it works.

par

This works for the A520 and probably other A510 series. That battery has lasted for 15 years!

par

Thanks yes it was the RTC

I happen to have this exact same model camera and the same problem! To think, I only searched for Canon camera date reset in Google and it brought me right here!

It does appear the problem is the CR1220 button battery needs to be replaced. I think these can be found at most drug stores.
