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!
