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.

When i take picture,the picture is white n some time become very very bright, but if take video is ok.


this can be usually associated with your white balance in still camera mode.
Check to see your white balance is set correctly or just set it to auto. Also make sure the mode you are in it set. (ie. indoor, outdoor, auto, speed)

My canon powershot a430 has always given me beautiful pics! I love it. but now I can only take pics inside. when I take pictures outdoors they come out white. what can I do to fix this problem?


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help. By the way, recommend trying the pencil tapping method described in this article for a stuck "open" shutter.

Hello,

Try the steps below.

Remove the Memory card

if there are lines, transfer picture on the computer.

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.

Pictures too bright


This has happened to me also. You mention that you were changing settings. The symptoms sound like your camera is in a special setting other than "Auto". Examples that would produce such results include Fireworks or Manual. Recommend trying to change your settings one more time:

1. Turn the camera on, and press the FUNC/SET button.
2. Press left or right on your circular dial switch until "Auto" is selected.
3. Press the FUNC/SET button one more time to set the camera to Automatic.

Now take a picture to see if this fixed it.
