Having problems with your Nikon COOLPIX S710 Digital Camera ?

Asks for date and time

\015 I have the same problem and I brought my camera to nikon repair center to use the product warranty in NY and they turned me down because I bought the camera outside of US.\015

Answers :

If it asks for date and time every time you turn it on even though you did set it last time - the internal battery is empty. You can change it if you have experience in soldering and repairs, otherwise - ask local Nikon or other camera service center.

My Sony 7.2 Cybershot camera recently ran out of battery, so I charged it. Once it was done charging, I put the battery back in. The screen showed up asking me to insert the current date and time, so I did so. Next, the zoom lense went out and in, out and in, and out and in while the screen said "Access". Next, it told me to turn the camera off and on again. Nothing happens when I do so, and I've done it about 10 times to no avail. Is this a fixable problem?
