I am having the same problem.
I took my phone down to my verizon store.
they took the back off my phone and said it had been wet and that is why the camera won't work.
they tried updating the software (which it free) to see it that would fix it and that didnt work...

I dont believe that is the problem but I cant figure out how to fix it...

you can tell your phone has been wet by taking the back off and looking at the little square beside the flash.
White= wet.
Black or checkered print= it has not been wet before.

I think the red screen recycling thru and not letting the phone start up is due to your contract is almost up, say within 3 weeks and you have not renewed your contract. so if you come in they will try to update your phone and contract. they downloaded a virus to your phone.

Samsung jets8003 no volume on adio player

A possible indication that the software might be corrupted. Please reset the mobile and see if it works.

If it doesn't then go for a firmware update or install any other player and see if it is showing the volume. I personally think the first one shall solve your issue.

Dont have a user guide need to know how to take pictures

The swivel design is so cool that people think it's a camera when they look at it. Also has a flash which was a big selling point for me. The ringer is loud, the mp3 player is great and loud enough to set it on the console of your car and listen to music. there's also a ton of accessories and goodies to buy for this phone. there's tons of choices for covers, skins, silicone, everything! Call quality is amazing, voice to text is really neat. just push a button, talk and it will type out the text for you. Voice dialing is a great feature too. there's nothing NOT to like about this phone. i recently upgraded and gave the phone to my daughter. at first she didn't want it because it doesn't have the qwerty keyboard, but the word function works so well that it doesn't matter any more. she loves it too! i highly recommend this phone or any other samsung quality product!

I have also a problem with my samsung s3500.Whenever i try to use camera it says 'check camera connection' and whenever someone calling me i can't hear her voice. i need to select the speaker on so i can...

You have 2 problems there. First, the error from the camera states that there is a problem with the camera's physical connection. It is telling you that the cable/wire that activates the camera is either loose or damaged.

With the loud speaker working and the earphone not means that the speaker is also either loose or damaged. Both the speaker and camera are on the same area in the phone and thus have a connection problem.

You have to have it checked with Samsung's Service Center.

Hi, what cause your phone crash all the time is the flex that is connected to the phone and allows the camera displays is faulty and needs to be replaced.

When you replace the camera flex, the phone will work normal again.

Take care.

I can't get the camera to zoom. When I try I get an icon with a red X in the bottom left hand corner.

When the camera is already at maximum resolution, it won't zoom because there isn't an optical zoom. If the camera is set at a lower res, it will electronically zoom.
