Rather annoyingly, my K-3 keeps forgetting what the date/time is and I have to reset it. I don't remember my K10 or K20 doing that.

Does anyone else have this problem, or should I be getting someone to look at it?

Thanks, Kris.

The capacitor that stores the power for the memory when the battery is replaced and removed will be knackered.it happened my k30 as it was out of warranty i did not bother and just ignore unless I need the exif to be right then I just input the date time etc and it is fine untill I replace the battery.

Would that be the Flux capacitor?
Maybe Doc and Marti could help you out here. 😉

Ahhh, OK. Luckily mine is still within the warranty. Thanks folks, K.
