Question about Polaroid a520M Digital Camera

1 Answer

Polaroid a520 will not keep the date

For some reason my polaroid a520 will not keep the date/time. If it shuts off, the date sets back to 10/01/03 00:00:03 . It does not ask me to set the time when I turn the camera on, but the time stamp automatically goes on the picture. Unless I fix the date or delete the time stamp EVERY time I turn the camera on. HELP

Need to set date and time at each starting. have changed 1220 battery what could be the reason


It sounds like you or the camera is not saving the settings. Refer to your manual for a step-by-step setting of the time. You're probably just not hitting some "save" key.

My D.C does not keep the date


Exit the menu that comes up about time & date when you turn it on. Then press the menu button, use the left navigation button, then scroll down to date & time, and set it there. For some reason when it comes up the navigation buttons won't let you set the time, but when accessed from the menu, it will.

You have to change the 'date battery'. Use the user manual to find its location.

Mine is Canon A520, located beside the cable link sockets. Battery is CR 1220.

Having to reset date and time


Solution: Replacing the date battery PowerShot A510 and A520

Replacing the Date Battery If the Date/Time menu appears when the camera power is turned on, the date battery charge is low and the date and time settings have been lost. Please purchase a lithium coin battery (CR1220) and replace it as follows.
Please note that the first date battery may appear to expire relatively quickly after you purchase the camera. This is because it is installed in the camera at the point of manufacture, not when you make the purchase. caution_a70.gifBe particularly careful to keep the date batteries out of the reach of children. Seek medical assistance immediately if a child swallows a battery since corrosive battery fluids could damage the stomach or intestinal wall.
  1. Confirm that the camera is turned off.

  2. Open the terminal cover and use your finger nail to pull out the battery holder.

  3. Pull open the battery holder in the direction indicated by the arrow (1). Remove the battery by pulling it up in the direction indicated by the arrow (2).

  4. Insert a new battery with the ( ) side facing up.

  5. Replace the battery holder back and close the terminal cover.

  6. When the Date/Time menu appears, set the date and time.

note_icon_a70.gif After purchasing the camera and turning on the power for the first time, although the Date/Time menu will appear, you do not need to replace the date battery. If you ever dispose of your camera, first remove the date battery for recycling according to the recycling system of your country.

Time and date


There is a small 3volt battery soldered on the main board that needs to be replaced. It has a yellow band around it, unless you can replace it yourself it's not worthwhile. If you decide to replace it beware of the flash capacitor charge.

Camera will not retain time setting


Firts check the state of the litium battery, this is locate near the Audio/video port in your camera, with small flat screw driver you will be able to remove it. If the same situation occur after replacing the litium battery and i'm assuming the unit had never be open before unfortunately your camera needs new main board ass'y. But if the case is that some one open the unit before check for a loose conector from the litium unit to the main board.
