Question about Sony Ericsson Z525a Cellular Phone
When I press the Camera option from the Main Menu, it goes to the video or camera, appears to be stuck adn then returns to the Main Menu. I cannot use my camera or my video recorder, but I can accept pictures and videos and play them from the My Stuff menu option and in text messages. What could the problem be?
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
