With my DS2, I shot a bunch of images over July 4, and ran down the batteries (Energizer 2500 maH, and I now have 3 sets of 4 batteries, plus a pack of 4 AA lithium as backup)...when I changed the batteries, I did it in about 20 seconds, but when I turned on the camera, day and date were wrong, and it seemed like some settings returned to default...

Will this happen every time I change batteries, or is there a small flat batt somewhere in the camera that maintains my settings???...thanks

I've changed batteries several times, and this has never happened to me. So if it happens every time you change the batteries, something is wrong with your camera.

I have changed the batteries many times in my DS and that has never happened to me, all settings remain the same.

Ditto- Many battery changes and settings stayed. I would Contact Pentax tech Support. I believe that there was a thread at one point Here that had the same issues, But I Dont remeber the outcome

There is no button battery, but rather a capacitor that stores enough of a charge to maintain your settings for about 24 hours. If this continues, there could be a problem wiyth that component.
