My camera is continuing to load and taken photo's without pressing anything on the phone, this is draining the battery and the buttons stop working after this happens( the touch screen works but not the...

I have come across this problem many times (my wifes F480 did this). The cause is the ribbon on which the camera switch is situated, you will need to get the ribbon replaced. I really would not advise trying to replace this yourself. You should be able to find a phone store that can do this for you. When I undertake this repair the cost to the customer is £20.00, so if you take it to a phone store and they say it will cost more, steer clear! If you know someone with a bit of knowledge in mobile phone repair, you can get the ribbon off eBay cheap enough (make sure you're purchasing an original part).

Preview error comes up when i press the camera button

Hi, sorry for late answer. I think it is a common problem on flip or slide mobile phones. I had the same problem and i fixed it by replacing the ribbon flex cable. They are very cheap on ebay (i got one for $2.35 with free P&P)...
Here it is a video that may help you.
Hope it'll works on you too...

When in Camera mode I focus and then prepare to take the picture but the as soon as I press the switch to take the picture the LG routinely switches from Camera mode to the Video mode. Why? I cant see

Well, this is the intended function of the button unfortunately.

If you press and hold down the camera button, it toggles between camera and video.
However I'm sure you have noticed that on occasion, if you don't hold the button down long enough, no picture is taken.

It turns out to be something you just have to get used to. There is like a 2 second delay on the toggle so just don't hold it down that long. It is hard to get used to if you are used to a red eye removable flash or a slow camera button as found on many new cameras.

Here is a tip though, after you take the picture to quickly take another picture, you can fast save the photo by pressing the camera button again instead of messing with the touch screen.

How do i take pics?

Well, the easiest way is to use the botom button on the right side (edge) of your phone.

The other way is to press the Main Menu button on the main screen. This is the middle icon at the bottom of the screen that has 4 dots then go to Media Center.
Select Pictures & Video then Take Picture.

Point and press the camera button (bottom right edge)

To switch between Video and Pictures, press and hold down the camera button until either the camera icon or the video (movie camera) icon appears.

Once you take the picture, you have to select the second icon down on the right to save it to the phone.

helow hanan, let's first consider the software problem with your phone try reprogram your phone, maybe the program of your camera get faulty. But be reminded that your file saved on fon memory will be deleted. If it doesnt work we can conclude that your camera was damaged due to the dropped you made.
