Well there is only one suggestion I can make and it is the camera needs service / repair by a shop.

The camera will not deface your photos by scrawling a bunch of numbers across them. However the date and time (and a lot more) are automatically stored with every picture in its EXIF metadata. Any photo viewing/editing program should be able to display this data. To print this data, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your pictures. Depending on the program and printer you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

SD/SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

You can download the current versions of all (free) Nikon software from here.

You're not limited to using Nikon software with your camera. The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Nikon Transfer or Picasa.

In the P, S, and M modes, turn the command dial on the back of the camera. In the A mode, turning the command dial changes the aperture and the camera will change the shutter speed to compensate.
In the point&shoot modes the camera will set the shutter speed on its own.

If you want to replace the screen yourself, you can order the part here. Otherwise take the camera to a good camera shop and have a trained technician do the job.

Having gone nearly two months without a reply to my query, I assume my suggestion to use a card reader solved the problem.

Nikon COOLPIX... | Answered on Oct 15, 2011

The display being distorted can be due to failure of the LCD or the CCD which is the optical sensor of the camera. So to confirm check the older picture to be seen on the display. Confirm this by checking the card on your PC. If the images/picture is seen to be of good quality, then the LCD can be faulty, fault on the linking cable or the control board.

However if the older images are seen well then the LCD is working correctly and the fault can be failure of the CCD- charge coupled device in the camera. If you have accidently exposed the camera directly to high intensity light / sunlight, then it is possible that it is damaged. Remove the battery and keep the camera aside to reset and try as a last resort. Get estimate before you decide. It will be good to have it checked at the authorised service as you do not have to run around for spares.
