Losing Date/Time?

Every time I turn my K100D on, it makes me set the date and time again. Seems like the internal is dead, but I can't be sure. Is this a fix-it-myself issue, or should I send it back to Pentax?

Have a look at these threads:

Sounds like the internal backup battery has run dry, and it might have to be replaced.
