My camera just stopped working. when i turn it on the lense open slightly and the lense wont come out as usual and the light shows for 5 seconds blinking then goes off. the model of my camera is a BENQ DC...


Your batteries have worn out. They don't give enough power for the camera to switch on properly.
Replace the batteries. Use 1000mAh or better batteries.

Couple seconds after i turn my camera on, green


This was also an issue with my own camera and I was getting really really mad that it SHOULD have been working, but wasn't. I fixed the issue by removing the batter and taking a very very very small screwdriver and prying the contacts back just a little bit in order to make contact with the battery. I placed the batter back in and voila! Hope it works with you!

Kodak DC 260 The camera does not turn on. For some seconds the power light blinks green, then it changes to blinking red and the diplay shows ''E 11''. Then it turns off.


It could be something more serious, or as simple as inserting fresh/fully charged batteries, but the problem you describe is frequently due to corroded battery contacts inside the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a clean cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or fine sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, clean the contacts at both ends of the batteries, and reinsert them in the camera. This cleaning cures the problem about 90% of the time, and I hope it works for you.

Monitor goes black


It always does that while it's powering up the flash again. If you're saying it doesn't come back after a few more seconds, that is a problem. Or maybe by that time, the power saver kicks in. You can tell if the power light starts blinking. Then you just have to press the shutter button again to turn it back on.

If this error message appears, turn off the camera and remove the batteries for 30 seconds. Afterwards, reinsert the batteries and turn the camera back on. If this doesn't work, perform a manual reset of the camera. If you need an online manual here is a link with troubleshooting http://www.docs.sony.com/release/DSCW40_EN.pdf

Camera switches itself off seconds after turning it on


This is a service center job and I think the lens assy motor is jammed. Take to a near by camera repair center
