Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

My Canon G9 requires that I input the date/time every time I turn it on. I think the internal lithium battery is dead, but the manual does not cover it replacement.

Hi there

\015\012The button cell lithium battery will require replacement. You should be able to locate it under a flap. It may be behind the main battery, so remove that first. Once you remove the button cell battery, note its number and buy the replacement.

I have had my S9600 for 4 years, for most of that time, when i changed the batteries, all my settings remained the same. Now, when i change the batteries, every setting has returned to factory standard (stupid beeps and whirring noises, no date etc) and i have to reset everything. The user manual has no mention of an internal battery, but i figure there must be one and it now needs replacing. How do I do this?
