Nikon Coolpix S70 - picture
There may be a fault requiring service (probably not economically viable if they won't do it under warranty), but before you go there, does this camera have a "Macro" feature? This is usually represented by an icon that looks like a flower. If you have set that on, the camera goes into an extreme close-up mode and won't focus on items at normal distances.
How do I charge a nikon clock battery
The clock battery is internal and cannot be removed or replaced except by a technician. It is recharged by your regular rechargeable battery, so there is no separate charging procedure. If you find that your clock and other permanent settings are being list when you remove your regular battery for charging, then it's an issue with the internal battery and should go to repair.

Bakground of the photo is a bit blurry
this is, in most cases, a desired effect (bokeh) which is used to "detach" the subject from the background avoiding the viewer of the picture to be distracted by the background. This technique is widely used in portraits. This effect effect will be more pronounced when the lens is wide open (in your case it should be f/3.5 if I remember well...). To practice you may try the following: set you camera to "A" mode and take one picture of something (it should not be a landscape) using the smallest aperture after this take the same pic using the biggest aperture. With the lower f number you should get a blurry background and with the biggest the backgroud should be in focus!

Error:press shutter release button again
You can try removing the lens and putting it back again but if its still giving you the error message, you need to have the camera repaired by a technician.

Take the lens off and continue pressing the shutter untill it doesn't react anymore, you should then have a normal menu without the error message.Put your lens on and you're all sorted.Cheaper and less hassle than sending it to Nikon.

Nikon d3100 stuck on flash mode
What do you mean by flash mode?
Have you read the manual how to use the camera?
If nothing from there helps, try connecting it via USB and check if there is firmware update. If even that doesn't help, try acessing menu and doing hard reset from there.
Nikon d70s novice
I'm the same of you, only I went for the D40.
One general photography book that seems to be recommended by a lot of people is Understanding Exposure by Bryan Peterson (ISBN13: 978-0817463007 or ISBN10: 0817463003)
I've just bought a copy, so will comment with my own opinions later if you want :)
Can't really comment on D70-specific books I'm afraid.
