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

A200 faulty selector switch


Same thing happened mine. Take out battery and leave camera for a few weeks until internal cell goes flat. Switch to "stills" mode and put battery back in. You will need to reset the date and time. LEAVE SWITCH IN "STILLS" mode for ever more.

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.

Do not know how to set it up


What is your camera's type ? Camera usually have MENU button in the back side of it. Find this button and press the button.
After the MENU options appear you can choose which part do you want to adjust by pressing RIGHT/LEFT arrow or UP/DOWN button, then press OK button.
After setup something (picture/video/sound or anything) then press OK.
If you want to go out from Setup mode, then press MENU several times until you come back to main display.

Hope this help and be kind to rate please.

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.

Not english


Note If the current language setting of the Dashboard is in a language other than English, the following steps will still work but you may not be able to read the menu options. If this is the case, you must follow the directional pad instructions exactly to make sure that you select the correct option.
  1. Start your Xbox console with no disc in the disc tray. The Xbox Dashboard appears.
  2. On the Main Menu screen, press the directional pad (D-pad) down two times to select Settings, and then press the A button.
  3. On the Settings screen, press the D-pad down one time to select Language, and then press the A button.
  4. On the Language screen, press the D-pad up or down to select the language you want, and then press the A button.
  5. Press the B button to return to the Main Menu screen.

Can't turn on my camera!


Hi..

I have a link and some information I found on the video option to your camera. This link is for the manual located on hp.com:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?product=371583&lang=en&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&

The following is how to stop video:
To stop recording video, press and release the Video
button again; otherwise, the video will continue recording
until the camera runs out of memory.

NOTE
If you have set the camera to Self-Timer or Self-Timer -
2 Shots (see Using the Self-Timer Settings on page 44),
the camera will start recording 10 seconds after you press
the Video button. However, with the Self-Timer - 2 Shots
setting, the camera only records one video clip.

After recording has stopped, the first frame of the video clip
appears on the Image Display. While it is processing, you can
delete the video clip by pressing the Menu/OK button

Good luck and please let me know if there is anything else i can hep you with--feedback would be geat.. thanks, d
