K-1 Date Keeps Changing

I keep changing the correct date in the Pentax K-1. Yet when I go to use it the date is different and has to be changed again. Has anyone else had this problem?

Are you using the GPS? IIRC, it switches the time in the EXIF data to UTC rather than the local time, which can be very different from local time (and maybe a day off), depending on where you live.

I have not used the GPS once.

You may need to specify your time zone, which would then allow the GPS to set the correct time. Curiously this setting sits in the Display Language page instead of the Set Date/Time page; just pick your city/state from the world map and turn DST on/off as needed.

Double-check the time zone first, then the time settings, and then the GPS settings.

Also, many cameras appear to have a few hiccups regarding time and date in the first month of use. I don't know why, but it seems to go away later. Just be mindful of it, and if it persists after many uses and a couple recharges of the battery, then seek further help from service stores

If it resets back to fabric time setting then you just might have a loose or bad internal battery.
