    Does anyone else's time of day reset on their cameras every time it's power cycled? It's just something I've noticed recently, haven't been paying attention to it much before.

    I'm almost positive the camera has a small, internal battery that handles that, so maybe that went dead? Don't know for sure, but I thought I heard that from someone.

    Yup, internal battery is dead and the camera needs to be sent to RED for service.

    Cost can range from $0.00 all the way up to $200.00

    Experienced this with my E-W. Bomb Squad instructed me to to leave the camera on for 3 days (yep, 3 days fully on, not just plugged in) to fully charge the internal battery. Did the trick for me. Didn't need to send in.

    I can confirm that a) this method did work for my Scarlet-W (obviously DSMC2) but b) did NOT work with my Scarlet Dragon (DSMC).

    Real bummer and it's not the first time I have had the problem with the Scarlet Dragon. Sent it in for repair a couple years back and then it happened again. :-( I love RED but they seem to be very much ignoring this particular issue.

    I have same issues from the beginning (sw). After performing 30 hours charge it went all right.
    But it occurred again. Now when i change my presets the TOD is resetted. So i have
    no more advantages to use presets.Resetting Time and date with foolcontrol is not enough quick.
    I would like to go back to 2001 as fast as my scarlet w!

    Had the same problem after not using my cameras for around 2 months. The resolution I got from my bomb squad rep is to power on the camera using an A/C adapter and leave on for 35 hours to trickle charge the internal battery.

    Yes, add 35 hours to the camera to keep your battery charged.
