The small circuit board that contains the camera and two gold pads for the ear phone contacts, has most likely gone bad. I opened my z525 phone and saw that the camera was only sealed to the printed circuit board on only one side, instead of all four sides. I opened the camera lens assembly under my binocular microscope and found that moisture (perhaps sweat) had gotten into the camera chip. Three of the gold wires that go from the CCD image chip to the circuit board had been eaten away by electrolysis, along with part of the copper circuit traces. The only way to repair this is replacement of the camera board. I am still looking for a board or an old broken z525 that I can salvage the camera to fix mine. -Mike

When i open the camera lens or enter the camera menu to take a photo the phone goes dark than i have to exit from the camera and wait a few seconds for the phone to light up again. It has the latest...


Try this:
Go to the main menu, enter the Organizer then go into the Video Call. If it's using the front camera, press options -> switch camera and make sure the camera cover is open.
If the camera works here it is a problem with the Camera Application, but if your camera does not work I would recommended sending it to your local repair shop.

How do i take pics?


Well, the easiest way is to use the botom button on the right side (edge) of your phone.

The other way is to press the Main Menu button on the main screen. This is the middle icon at the bottom of the screen that has 4 dots then go to Media Center.
Select Pictures & Video then Take Picture.

Point and press the camera button (bottom right edge)

To switch between Video and Pictures, press and hold down the camera button until either the camera icon or the video (movie camera) icon appears.

Once you take the picture, you have to select the second icon down on the right to save it to the phone.

Video call


Video call will only work if your service providers have enabled on both your and your friend's accounts, and your friend must also use a phone that supports video call, and both of you must be on 3G network (showing H next to signal bars). Video call must also be enabled on both phones, of course. When above criteria are met, video share menu will appear after your call is connected. Good luck!
