Re: Camera will not stay on!! Can it be fixed?

The camera mechanism is probably malfunctioning, and the phone switches you back to the main menu. Get a repair estimate I hope someone here can give you a DIY fix though good luck

Straight from Apple Iphone Manual
Camera is not functioning
  1. Tap Camera, then point and shoot. Note: If you take a picture with iPhone turned sideways, it is automatically saved in landscape orientation. If you do not see Camera on the any of the multiple Home screens, check to make sure that Restrictions are not turned on by tapping Settings > General > Restrictions. If they are, set Allow Camera to ON or tap Disable Restrictions (in iPhone 2.1 software or later).
  2. If that doesn't work, clean the camera lens with the cleaning cloth that came in the box with iPhone.

Razr- turning on camera makes screen turn black but keypad stays lit

the easiest thing tpo do here is take it to a professional but if you want to try updating your software off the Motorola website. (this require a data cable or bluetooth in your computer) This fixes a lot of software problems with the razor. If this doesn't work then you will have to reflash your Firmware which is like the Windows Xp of the phone. This does require a professional as it can destroy the phone

No veiwing screen

Well the screen is rather broken or the switch which turns the sreen on when u flip it open is sticking, this is just on the back at the top. the next hing is that the screen is broken. the thing about people calling in would be the setting, u can not change the setting because u can not see wat u r doing on the phone.
