Hi there and welcome

The cause for this is the date battery needs replacing

To get it out

Confirm that the camera is turned off.

Slide the memory card slot / battery cover lock and open the cover.

Hook your nail onto the date battery holder and lightly pull it up.

Remove the battery holder in the direction indicated by the arrow.

Pull open the battery holder . Remove the battery by pulling it up

Insert a new battery with the (-) side facing up.

Replace the battery holder back and close the terminal cover.

When the Date/Time menu appears, set the date and time.

It will then remain

You can get a new battery here

It is a CR2020

If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
