Built-In Speedlight (Flash) will not retract

\015 I noticed this problem a few weeks ago with the flash - I had to try a few times to lower it back into the "start" or down position before it would lock and stay down. Now, it will not stay down at all. I've tried to put it down with the camera on, with the camera off - I've tried everything I can think of - multiple times. I'm beginning to think it's just broken. If so, now what?\015

I haven't heard of this problem but compliments of velocityreviews I came up with this. \015\012\015\012Follow the instructions below to attach an external Speedlight. Refer to your Speedlight manual for detailed instructions regarding Speedlight operation.\015\0121 Make sure that both the camera and the external Speedlight are\015\012turned off.\015\0122 Attach the Speedlight to the camera accessory shoe.\015\0123 Turn both the camera and the Speedlight on.\015\0124 Set the external Speedlight zoom head to an angle wider than\015\012 28 mm. If you are using a Speedlight with Auto Power Zoom, set the zoom head angle manually. The COOLPIX5700 does not support power zoom.\015\0125 Set the external Speedlight flash mode to TTL.\015\012At this setting, the amount of light produced by the external Speedlight is measured by the camera?s photocell, and the flash shooting range adjusted automatically to ensure optimal exposure. D-TTL flash control\015\012(available with the SB-80DX, SB-50DX and SB-28DX) is not supported.\015\0126 Take the picture\015\012If the Speedlight Options: Speedlight Control option in the SET-UP\015\012menu is set to Auto, only the external Speedlight will fire. If this option is set to Int & Ext Active then the external Speedlight and the builtin Speedlight will fire at the same time.\015\012\015\012The COOLPIX5700 does not support AF-assist illumination, or red-eye\015\012reduction using the red-eye reduction lamp on the external Speedlight.\015\012At a setting of STBY (standby), the Speedlight will turn on automatically whenever the camera turns on but will not turn off automatically when the camera turns off.\015\012Exact functionality varies with the Speedlight in use. Refer to your Speedlight manual for details.\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012I hope it's of some help\015\012\015\012BMW
