Now, when i change the batteries, every setting has returned to factory standard (stupid beeps and whirring noises, no date etc) and i have to reset everything. The user manual has no mention of an internal battery, but i figure there must be one and it now needs replacing. How do I do this?

The battery is fully charged. The camera comes on for about 15-20 seconds and then the message comes on the screen:Please turn camera off and then on again.' when shutting down, the lens remains out.

We just purchased a Nikon Coolpix L110 digital camera. We completed the start up process and attempted to take a few test photos. we took two photos with flash and on the second photos, a loud noise was heard when the flash operated. We could never get the flash to operate again. We have read through the troubleshooting guide supplied with the camera and changed batteries and settings. No luck. Any assistance would be appreciated!
