Having problems with your Kodak EasyShare Z612 Digital Camera ?

My z612 will not save the date and time when i replace the battery


Answers :

Your camera has an additional small battery inside which lasts about five years and is solely for the purpose of maintaining the cameras memory functions. It's not meant to be user replaceable and normally lasts longer than the camera does so is not routinely replaced. Like almost all EasyShare models, the camera was never designed to be repairable in any event.

The battery itself will be a fairly cheap watch-type battery (sorry, I cannot find any resources which identify the exact type), but having it professionally fitted will cost more than the camera is worth. You can therefore either choose to do without those functions or to risk opening the camera yourself to locate and replace the battery but as there are no servicing manuals in the public domain you'll have to work out how best to do so yourself. If you have some experience of similar jobs and are of a practical nature then you should be able to do the job fairly easily, but ensure that you use an earthing strap attached to your wrist or ankle to avoid static electricity damage whilst fiddling around inside the camera.

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?
