Having problems with your Kodak EasyShare C613 Digital Camera ?

Doesn't remember time and date

\015 HiAlmost every time i want to use my camera it tells me the time/date needs resetting. Is there a memory battery that needs replacing. I cannot see a provision for one. I have new lithium batteries fitted and the camera works perfectly otherwise. It is about two years old.Thanks. Keith\015

Answers :

Keith, it sounds like the camera internal battery for the memory is dead. Normally they will last several years, however I have seen them go bad in one to two years. These batteries are not easily replaced on the Kodak models and requires disassembling the camera and soldering in a new battery. My recommendation would be to keep good lithium or rechargeable batteries in the camera, removing them only when they need replacing, or if the camera is going to sit unused for more than a couple months.

Not really sure if this is a problem? I have an Olympus E-500 and E-510. When I changes settings on the E-500 (ISO, White Balance, Auto-Focus Mode etc.) it remembers them when I switch it off. The E-510 doesn't. Is it supposed to work this way or is there an obscure setting I need to change? It remembers the time and date and the quelity settings ok. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

December 31/09. I moved from the MST zone to the PST zone. On the atomic clock I moved the button to change the zone. The clock seemed to work as it should for about 10 days.

I received a canon powershot as a gift last year and am just now really starting to use it. The pictures seem fine, but the it seems like I am frequently requested to put in the date and time (i.e. about every 2nd or 3rd time I turn the camera on). Is there somethign I can do to get the camera to retain the date and time? It is sort of annoying that I can't turn it on and take a picture quickly since it won't let me take one until I have entered the date and time. Also, I don't think it is stamp
