"Another application is running. Close it, then open the camera."

I tried opening my camera on my W580i but it keeps showing that "another application is running. Close it, then open the camera again." No other application is running at the time but the message still continues to pop up. Please help resolve. Thank you.

I am openig my camera it shows " an another application is runnig". this problem comes frm today mrng

Please check whether any other camera related application is running in the background. For that, do 'long-press' of menu button. Then exit that application then try relaunching the normal camera.
If it's not the matter, your firmware might have been corrupted. Try re-installing it, either using SonyEricsson PC suite or at an authorised service center.

Applications are not opening, just shows a locked key signs on them, when opening get error of "Operation field"

Hi,its obvious from your problem that the applications you are trying to access on your phone are of a formatnot supported by your phone,only java based applications are supported by the w580i because it's a java enabled phone,other application formats won't run on the phone.
However,you can get java appllications for your phone at all for free.
Thanks and take care
