Why can't I reset the date as requested?

When I turn on the camera, the screen requires me to set the date and time (the camera was purchased ten years ago). I fill in the new info and press the OK central button but it won't take a new date and get off the screen; it returns to the request to set time and date. While I can get out of that screen to take new photos or access old ones, I cannot copy any new ones onto my computer because all that comes up is the Set Date/Time screen.

Yes, but where do I purchase that CR1220 battery?


My grocery store carries them, A Radio Shack would be sure to have them.


Yes, I'm grateful. Purchased the battery and it worked to fix the problem! --Joan
