Having problems with your BenQ Digital Cameras ?

Every time i press the power on button, the camera powers on for 2 seconds and then the lens retracts and shuts down. I don't think it's the battery becasue I was able to view photos on an memory card that i inserted. please help.


Answers :

Hi, the issue is with Batteries. Please replace the Batteries of same specification in order to use the Digital Camera. The Photos in the Memory Card is powered by USB as the Power Source from your Computer and not your Camera's Batteries. So please replace the batteries with new one.
