Hi i need to know if someone had that probleme before, when i take out the battery out now everytime i need to input the date and time i have change the battery cr1616 in it and even if it is a new battery it doing the same thing anybody got an idea why. My only guess would be bad connection on that battery because as long as i keep the main battery everything is alright just the date and time keep reseting, and i had the camera for 1 year 1 month so no more garantie on it. Thanks

Nope, knock on wood, I've never seen that issue. May want to try another cr1616, I've had bad luck with them being weak/dead out of the package.

It could be that there is a bad connection between the camera and the CR1616, not with the CR1616 itself. I would recommend you send it back to Canon.

Right, but unless you take 30 seconds each time you insert a new battery to set the date and time, all your photos will be datecoded incorrectly, and this will hurt bad when you eventually load it onto your computer to browse specific dates...

Bear in mind you can use jhead to add a specific amount of time to a bunch of photos after the fact. I often use it to get out of adjusting my camera for time zones.

I wouldn't send the camera back to canon just yet. Its probably just the clock battery. If you have a multimeter, check the voltage on the new battery to see if its within spec. If you don't have a multimeter, just buy another battery before you take any drastic measures. Don't buy the battery from the same place, get it from a different retailer. These batteries aren't high demand items, and who knows how long its been sitting on the shelf before you bought it.
