Having problems with your Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z1 Digital Camera ?

Is there an internal battery for the time and the date?

\015 Is there an internal battery for the time and date? or i really have to set them again and again every time i change batteries?\015

Answers :

Manual says: "After installing the batteries, the set-time/date message may appear on the monitor. The clock and calendar are set in section\015\0123 of the setup menu (p. 18)."

\015\012In fact if you replace batteries really fast (in a minute or two) and time is reset the internal battery is probably exhausted/broken. You have to decide if it is worth of repairing.

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?
