Each time I remove the battery from my Nikon CoolPix 4300, the clock returns to a default of 2002 (in the LCD window the date shows as 000000. Each time I use the camera I have to reset the clock and date. I left the battery in the camera over night to see if the clock battery would take a charge and maintain the date and time the next time I removed the battery. No such luck. It returns to default. Is this a problem I can correct on my own?

I probably need more details but, it sound like when you remove the battery to recharge it, the clock loses any power it had. Most people have a second battery. When the first battery begins to lose power, they insert the fully charged battery so the ... Nikon Coolpix 4300 Digital Camera

My Sony DSC-W130 camera when turned off will not turn back on until I remove the battery and reinstert . Also if the battery is not removed it will drain after a period of time.

Lens Error I purchased a Nikon P90 a month ago; and it was working just fine. A couple of days ago during a photo shoot (after taking 190+ photos without any trouble), the camera went crazy.. It shows a lens error when turned on; asks to 'remove the lens cap' even if it is already removed. The lens starts to zoom out & in for a couple of times; then this error message comes up and just hangs. Tried removing the card, battery and even tried re-charging the cell. I purchased it from UK, and I'm n

Canon SD900 selection options not responsive. The selector wheel, Function Set button and menu selector only work from time to time. Even if pressing the ring brings up info to the LCD, nothing can be changed because the Function Button and the Menu button are not active. This is a random problem. Sometime, I can bring all functions back to life by removing and re-inserting the battery and restarting.


Sounds like the board has become damp and possibly corroded in certain parts this causing the random effect with the buttons their isnt much you can do unless you can remove the case yourself and give it a good clean but doing this is extremely diffi ... Digital Cameras
