Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A430 Digital Camera ?

I love A430. Now I am got one problem: data and time reset every time I switch off the camera. Otherwise everything is Ok. I already changed the small battery - didn't help. Please advise!


Answers :

The small battery is still the problem. You say you changed it- did you get it in the right way round? I have bought assortment packs of these batteries in a thrift shop and found that many of them were dead from new, so are you sure that the battery you put in is a good one?
