I got a used playstation from eBay a month ago. And everytime I turn off the PS3, and then turn it back on again, it asks me AGAIN for the time and date, and says 2012 even though I keep changing it to 2021 and my progress In games don't save. It saved once but not again. How do I change this?

Probably needs a HDD or CMOS battery replacement.

you could take it to a repair store or try to trade it for a better one.

Sounds like your CMOS is ****in done. If you're comfortable opening up your PS3, you can replace it with a standard CR2032 5v coin battery
