Cybershot will not store clock settings

\015 My Sony Cybershot (DSC-W150) has suddenly stopped keeping the correct date and time after about seven months of working without a problem. I've tried various suggestions - formatting the internal memory, using the "initialize" option to restore the default settings, using a new battery - all of which have done nothing. Most of the time it just defaults to January 1, 2008 and then asks me to set the clock every time I turn it on. It still takes pictures fine, but will not organize them by date. Plus, it's a nuisance to set the clock every time I turn it on.I have had success a couple times getting the correct date to save, but the clock does not appear to run after that. Example: if I set the clock at 1:30 and check it again at 1:40, the camera still reads 1:30. I assume if I left it off for a day, the next day it would tell me that it's yesterday. When I try to reset the time, it loses the settings again (1/1/08, 12midnight).Sony Customer Support was basically useless, as they only suggested things I TOLD them I tried and also to plug in the AC adapter which the Cybershot doesn't even have! They said if their "fixes" don't work I will need to send the camera out for service.One other detail: even after replacing the battery with a brand new one, the battery indicator on the LCD shows it as partially drained (battery w/ hash marks through it). After charging, the first battery never showed this immediate drainage until this clock setting fiasco started. This is why I thought replacing the battery would help, which it didn't, but these problems are likely related.Question: Does the Cybershot contain a separate, internal lithium battery (like a small watch battery?) for the clock? Sony seems to want to keep it a secret, and I haven't opened the camera to find out. I've heard of some cameras that have this, and if it's something I could replace myself without sending my camera out I would appreciate that knowledge!\015

I sent the first one back because i thought it was the camera but the new one is doing the same thing. something about setting the time zone is messed up. it will not set to the proper am or pm. if i set it at 4:30 in the afternoon the time zone time will state 4:30 a.m. and when i exit out to the main screen the time on my camera will have then changed to a.m. instead of p.m. also you cannot set the clock in the camera to 12 a.m. anything. there is no 12 on the a.m. choice of the clock. it will
