I have noticed that when I connect the power tank to the AVX mount using the cable and locknut, the date and time are correct.
However, if I connect my power supply I brought sometime ago, the date and time is reset to 00.00.19 for the time and 03/01/00 for the date.
If I reconnect the power tank with original cable the time still says 00.00.19 for time and 03/01/00 BUT if I change it to the correct date and time it remembers it for next time I switch on using the power tank.
If I go back to using the power supply, it resets the time again to 00.00.19 and 03/01/00!!
Anyone come across this before?
