This happens when the time/date battery is out. That will make you confuse but it's not the ordinary battery that controls the time and date of your mobile, there's a tiny battery on the motherboard of your mobile. In most cases, it's soldered and so replacing is not recommended. When I say "tiny", it means very tiny, you might not be able to see it if the phone is not completely disassembled.
Hope this clears your doubt.

Let me know if you need further help.

Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

    That's another word, I guess, it's not applicable with your issue since your problem is only a minor issue, not a major unrepairable issue. If you wish to replace, go ahead, but I frankly I won't recommend you to do that, and I will neither responsible for any further damage. Well, suppose, if your phone is having problem on the main board and you can't power on, then it's a major issue, since mobile motherboards are not available as replaceable parts. If you wish to replace, then you will need to get the motherboard from another similar phone, so what's the use? You still have to pay for the other phone's motherboard. Yes, you may be able to find a used board, but it will cost you not less than 80% of the original price of the phone.

    Anyway thanks for the testimonial, I am sorry, if I made you disappointed..

    Once again thanks for using FixYa.

My nokia 3110c not working properly

Clean and dry the battery terminals, check if the battery has swollen which indicates poor battery, reset all the settings to factory default, possibility of bad memory cells (memory card), it seems the handset is still in warranty period, contact nokia customer care for free repairs or replacement.
