Because the camera has Mechanical Focus the camera button has 2 Pressures, Holding The first 1/2 of the button press will enable to Mechanical Focus to work, And then once the green dot is shown telling you its in focus, pressing the button all the way down will then take your picture !

Camera on my Blackberry Pearl isnot working


The problem is the connection between the camera and the circuit board.

I fix my Blackberry Curve 3300 by

1)cleaning the lense

2)apply light to medium downward force on the around the glass.
NOT ON THE GLASS

Listen for light a plastic snap.
The lense is going back into the housing....that's a good sign.

Test the camera.

If you are getting green or blue tint of partial image then you are have a good change to get it going.

The last step is to give it gentle to med. tap on the side.

If all works well the camera and contacts will re-sit itself onto the circuit board.


Please post the result on the comment window.

Camera is infared


This is the initial sign of the camera coming loose from the socket on the main board.

If it still in warranty then send it out for repair.

If it's out of the warranty then you can put a foam or plastic spacer to under the battery cover.

Just like the battery foam pad under the battery.

Place few tab of supporting material under the battery cover. Make sure they does not cover the lense or the flash.

Next time the camera give you the error message again or ghost like image.

Take the battery out and press the camera and flash area firmly until you hear a soft plastic snap sound.

Once the camera contacts snap back in place then your are back in business.

G1 phone camera doesnt take pictures


As the others said, there are the two settings. I had a similar problem, then realized how it worked. You need to not press very hard while it focuses first. Then you can press all the way down, if you hold it all the way down, it doesn't recognize that you've already passed the first "Focus" pressure point and gone into the second "Capture" pressure point.

turn the phone off, press and hold the soft keys (buttons with the lines on them above the home key and back arrow key) and hold it down.....press the power button while you are doing that until the white t-mobile screen will come on, then instead of going to the green windows mobile screen, a black screen with white writing......press the green button....it will get you in your phone but it will erase your info as a result....

You need to delete files from your memory. Pictures take up a lot of space, to be able to take additional pictures you should probably delete some of the ones you have saved in the gallery currently. Delete files to make more space and you can take more pictures.

Camera Error in 2mth old Imate Jamin


This happens also because the RAM memory is full by programs opened before. For example, whenever you turn of any program or aplication like contacts or messages, it doesnt turn off at all by clicking the X, it remains opened and you have to go to Star, Set up, then click on Memory, then on running programs, and stop them. This way ram will be able to use the camera and store pics on storage card. Do this also when you see that camera looks like unfocused, its always the ram memory.
