The problem is: Every time I reboot the device (i.e. press and hold power button until it shuts off; press again to start up) I find that the date has reset to 1/1/2000. This probably started a few weeks ago. When the device powers down on its own, this does not happen. (Not sure why it powers down once in a while -- I assume some kind of crash.) System is Android 2.3.6. The reason I need to reboot it manually is to swap out a low battery while away from an electrical outlet (it's a Samsung Galaxy Player 4.2 -- that's one of the benefits of this device). Thanks for any suggestions.
