I can't get my Dash to start the camera. No error, no nothing, just the camera is not working. What should I be looking for to fix it? Video recorder is also not working.
Try holding down the camera button for a few seconds from the home screen, and then let go. There should be a spinning circle on the screen. Wait for that to disappear into the camera application (the circle will disappear, and then the camera app will load up.) Also, CHECK TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE ENOUGH MEMORY ON YOUR PHONE. I think you should have at least 10 MB of free (unused) program and storage memory. Try these things. Also, this phone can be sluggish, so I would suggest trying to wait a little longer for the camera to open up. Also, try taking the battery out of the phone for 3 sec (soft reset) and then putting it back in and starting the phone up. Then open the camera FIRST before you open any other programs. I WOULD ALSO HIGHLY RECOMMEND BUYING A MICRO SD STORAGE CARD FOR THIS PHONE, and storing all your programs, data, AS MANY ITEMS AS POSSIBLE on it so that when you have to HARD RESET YOUR PHONE, if ever, you won't lose as much information.
