You can download & read the manual from here.
It's second from the bottom of the big list.
I would be very grateful to know where the time/date battery is. I have accidentaly sent my ins. Man. For new camera w/an old camera I sent to my Father. If he could hear well enough on the phone I would ask him to read that info to me. Thank you for being willing to help. Kathleen
Hi Kathleen! The manual was posted in another reply, but here it is again. If you need a physical copy of the manual and they're still available, I'd contact us and see if we can get one out to you. Just to clarify, there is no date and time battery that you can remove in the EOS Digital Rebel XS, so you don't have to go looking for that! All you need to do is set the camera to "P" on the top dial, go to the second yellow "hammer and wrench" menu and go to "Clear Settings" and hit "Set", then go to "Clear All Camera Settings," arrow over to "OK" and hit "Set" again. The screen will say "BUSY" for a moment, then go down to "Clear all custom functions" and hit "Set," arrow over to "OK," then hit "Set" again. It will blink back to the "Clear Settings" menu from there just power the camera off and on and you're done!
It is possible to reset the Rebel by removing the battery for an extended period of time. It is recommended that you do that if you will not be using the camera for a long while, too. If you have to reset the date and time when you put the battery back in, the camera reset. If the date and time are still there, it did not reset.
