Correct date on HP Photosmart All in One printers

HP Photosmart All In One printer, scanner (6510, B211a) can be a life saver.  Sometimes I wonder where the smarts went to .  If you scan a document to SD card, you will get a document with a weird date in the year 2008.  There is no facility to set the date either on the control panel or web page!  A quick search through the various HP printer forums, a few people were having the same problem.  This feature seems to be little use or people just put up with it.

One day I was browsing through my router’s config when I realized that the NTP  was disabled.  Turning that on the date problem corrected itself.  Hah!  So much for good documentation.
