Having problems with your Nikon Coolpix 5900 Digital Camera ?

How do you activate red eye reduction in the 5900?

\015 I've been through the full manual and all the menu options but can't find how to activate the red-eye reduction. My pictures using this camera have serious red eye over the past few months but didn't before that.\015\012\015\012I've seen several references the say "when you activate the red eye reduction mode" or similar so I must be missing something obvious somehow.\015\012\015\012Separately...like some of you, my battery case no longer stays shut. I'm just using some strong tape on it.\015
