Replacing the Date Battery for the PowerShot SX1 IS, SX10 IS and SX20 IS.


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.
Be 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 can damage the stomach or intestinal walls.

1. Confirm that the camera power is turned off.

2. Slide the battery cover lock and open the cover.

3. Remove the AA batteries, then pull out the battery holder by hooking your fingernail under the center of the battery holder edge.

4. Remove the battery by pulling it up in the direction indicated by the arrow.

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

6. Replace the battery holder and close the battery cover.

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

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 area.
