Hi there, My A 33 won't retain the date and time every time I change the battery. Is there a procedure for fixing this? Help is definitly appreciated.

In addition to the removable battery, there's another rechargeable battery that is not removable. This internal battery preserves the date and time and several other settings while you change the removable battery. After a while, all rechargeable batteries reach a point where they can no longer hold a charge. Your A33 has been around for a while, and it seems that the internal battery may have reached that point.

Unfortunately, the internal battery is not user replaceable. You must find a service center to replace that battery. I suggest you check with some of the larger brick-and-mortar camera retailers in your area to see if they can do it for you. If not, then you'll have to send it in to a Sony service center.
