Question about Samsung SGH-G800 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Can't start the SGH-G800 camera. Error message is ''camera failed''

Camera was working fine. Since yesterday, it flashes a very quick message saying "camera failed" and goes back to main menu when I start to start Camera.
I haven't installed any new software or firmware since I got the SGH-G800
Thanks for helping

when you open the slide there is a magnet on the inside of it that operates a switch on the board therefore to operate it you need to apply a similar magnet in the correct position on the board to activate it

Samsung and video features no longer work...error message says camera failed....

Solution: Bring it into your retailer. Mine did the same thing in 2008 (I'd open up camera and it would just freeze). AT&T gave me a brand new phone, save the sim card, battery, and battery cover.

P.S. I'd back up all your photos/videos/ringtones/etc. to and SD card so you don't lose them all like I did. Contacts saved to sim card stay.
