    If just I could go back to 1981 I would be happy :-)

    Joke aside, I would think it should have some kind of battery to keep the date, but I really don't know--

    no solution so far… they told me to try to keep it fire with the firewire cable for few hours… sometimes it's enough… it didn't work !
    It need to be serviced… mine is only 3 years and a half old… a disposal camera maybe ?
    it looks like a bad conception for me… is it the same for IQ and Credo ?
    Buy an IQ today for 30 000 $ it will need to be serviced in 3 years to keep the date ?!

    My P45+ lost the date 2 times. The P45+ had a battery that could be replaced but on by the service center. Both times I had to send it in under the value add warranty.

    You should ask your Leaf dealer to arrange you to get a Credo 40/60 demo during the time of the servicing ...
    All good compagny should provide to professional this kind of service

    Did you try to reset back to factory default in the menu, and then reset the date?
