This is the initial sign of the camera coming loose from the socket on the main board.

If it still in warranty then send it out for repair.

If it's out of the warranty then you can put a foam or plastic spacer to under the battery cover.

Just like the battery foam pad under the battery cord to give it firm support.

Place few tab of supporting material under the battery cover. Make sure they does not cover the lense or the flash.

Next time the camera give you the error message again or ghost like image.

Take the battery out and press the camera and flash area firmly until you hear a soft plastic snap sound.

YOU MAKE HAVE TO DO THIS MANY TIMES

Once the camera contacts snap back in place then your are back in business.

=====
Do a firmware update from Blackberry.com support page should fix the bluetooth problem.

It's a 15-20 minutes job, Once you start,it CAN NOT abort.

Blackberry camera problem


Any other program using the camera? (such as custom filters.. etc) if you have anything that is using the camera application then it won't actually close until you close the hosting program; easiest way is to take out the battery WHILE THE PHONE IS ON (important part, that's why I yelled it :) ) and leaving it out for about 10-20 seconds, reinsert and try again

Tip

Blackberry Curve Camera Won't Open


This Tip can help if you are receiving the following message on your Blackbery Curve.

"Could not start the camera. Close other applications and try opening the camera again."

A lot of people are complaining of this happening on the Blackberry curve for no apparent reason. Firmware updates do not resolve the behavior and it can become a very difficult problem to resolve.
There are four main things that have been known to resolve this problem as listed below;

1) Close the applications as requested. To do this;
  • Hold down the Blackberry button (marked by dots on the phone)
  • A menu will pop up showing all the apps that you currently have open.
  • Enter each one of these apps and make sure you manually close it down via the close selection on the menu.
  • Try the camera

2) This very simple solution has been known to work in a lot of cases.
  • Put your finger over the flash (if fitted on your version) and cover it when you try to start the camera, the camera has been known to start without any problem if you do this.

3) The camera is very susceptible to knocks which can easily jam the lens. This can often be resolved by following these simple steps.

  • Remove the back cover.
  • Gently but firmly press down around the lens until you hear a soft click.
  • Replace cover and battery and power up to see if issue resolved.

4) Finally this one may seem strange but is reported to work in some instances

  • Go to OPTIONS -ADVANCED OPTIONS - HOST ROUTING TABLE.
  • Click to enter then use menu key to Register now.
  • You will get an email for verification.
  • Pull the battery while the device is ON and then replace it.
  • Let the device reboot 1-3 min
  • Retry the camera.

This message displays any time i try to access the camera. "could not start the camera. close other applications and try opening the camera again". please help.


Hi,

This is what you should do, press and hold the menu key.. you'll get a display in a rectangular form with all programs that are currently running on your blackberry.

You can scroll through the open applications and for you to close all running applications, you'll have to click on your trick ball to get you to that open application and then you close it.

Go over the process of holding the menu key for about 10 seconds again until the rectangular window opens with applications that are currently open.

Click on another program and close it.... do this for all the applications until your have about 4 applications running. Once it's reduced to this you would be able run your camera.

Regards

My blackberry curve can't open the camera cuz it says to close an application that is open. I have gone through all applications one by one closing and it still says the same thing.


The camera module pops out of its socket.


Power off the Blackberry

Open the rear cover of the Blackberry

Remove the battery

Apply GENTLE pressure around the camera

Press around the lens and listen for a POP noise.

Place the battery and cover back and test the picture and camcorder mode.

If you see the pic by distored pic on the LCD then you are half way there!


Please RATE my answer if it's useful to you

Thanks

Could not start the camera. Close other applications and try opening the camera again


Very gently take the back off of the Blackberry, slightly push in on the camera itself, reboot and the camera should work.

I found out the hard way selling my phone on eBay only to have it returned because the camera didn't work. It's a hardware issue and not a software issue.

If it's still under warranty, try and get a new phone, otherwise --problem solved.
