Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8100

2 Answers

Blackberry Pearl - camera stopped taking decent pics

Whenever I'm outdoors and trying to take pictures, all I see is bright white (sometimes you get a feint outline of people, if they're really close, in a kind of light blue colour). I've tried with all the various White Balance options and have also reduced the picture size/quality, but it just doesn't seem to work anymore - it used to take quite nice outdoor photos.

Indoor shots are fine, with or without flash.

what am I doing wrong?

I solved the bright pictures issue by reloading the OS.
BlackBerry OS V4.5.0.110 version has a fix for this Camera issue. Download and install the 4.5.0.110 version on you PC. Go to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader folder rename or delete Vendor.xml file. Then, run Loader.exe and follow the screens to reload the OS. Good luck.

You checked to see if the Color option is set to negative. Either that or the camera is ddead on the phone. Sorry.

If you updated the os on this phone to 4.5 they have been seeing issues with this problem happening on pearls using 4.5.

My camera won't start it says other applications are open


Can happen if switching applications from the blackberry key menus - leaves a trail of applications open in memory. Can try shutting down and re-booting the phone (most thorough way is to take out battery when it's off and put it in again after a minute), then try the camera before you use anything else. Does that help?

My PC does not find my Blackberry Pearl. I'm trying to download some music to the device to listen as an MP3.


to do so you will have to download the Blackberry Desktop Manager with media manager

https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads/browseSoftware.do;jsessionid=VjdY-jJYDP6kC4XecJSylg**


this will take you to the blackberry download page for desktop manager with media manager.
download and install it.
then plug your phone in via usb cord and will initialize.
in the desktop manager click on media manger and add pics, music and videos.

Blackberry Pearl and View my Message


that is because you have mms settings not working, call the phone provider tech support phone and get assistance in setting mms server on your phone, so that you do not need using the tedious viewmymessage.com website anymore.
