RX1 internal battery problem


I recently bought a 2nd hand/unused RX1. Its a beautiful camera and I love it to bits.

Today it developed an issue where, if i replace an exhausted battery for a fully charged battery, it asks for the camera to enter the "Area/Date/Time to be entered when i turn it back on.

It looks as if the internal battery that stores this information is exhausted.

I have searched the internet for anyone who has had this same issue but cannot find anything. The only thing I found was that, someone said, if it is charged by using the USB cable into a PC that it will recharge the battery. I did try this for an hour but it made no difference.

The camera is out of warranty.

Is there an obvious simple answer to this issue or is it a camera fault.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
