It is important to note that removing the memory battery will cause the camera to forget all of your settings. It would be helpful to document your settings before performing these steps. Perform these steps as basic troubleshooting, much like a soft reset.

I did not write the original post, but I believe once you remove this battery ALL custom changes and time will be gone. You will have to re-create them. Besides the rechargeable battery, the only one keeping track of some settings is this one.

Will doing this reset the shutter count in the camera? Like when you go to an external program to see how many shutter actuations there have been over the lifetime of the camera, will that number be erased?
