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.

rupesh ingie Hello the first thing you can do is pull the battery and let the phone reboot. If that doesn't work go to balckberry dot com and downlaod desktop manager. This will help you reload all you allpications back into the phone as well as backup yout information.You can also go in the optinons . The wrench looking icon on your phone and go to advance options and then settings and deletel any applications your not using. this is a sign that your phone memeory is being used up. You may need a memory cardfor your curve. You can then run applications and pictures of the memory card instead of the phone. You can delete some apps like chinses and *** fonts. if your not using the blackberry maps. if your not using brickbreaker. and a host of other apps. You don't want to erase the core ones.

BlackBerry Curve 8310 camera doesnt work it says close other applications


Download the newest firmware upgrade from Blackberry. In addition to a couple of new apps (movie mode and voice recorder), it should take care of your problem. Of course, this is all free.

Camera wont work, wants me to close apps and try again


Sounds like you may have a corrupted java system. Try to reload the OS by going to the Blackberry.com website, an downloading the desktop manager 4.7 fairly large, as well as the Blackberry device software. Depending on Carrier it should be the 4.5 version. Install the desktop manager, then install the handset software. Plug the phone in let it detect the settings, and then use the application loader to reload the handset software. It will back up your settings, and applications, and restore them once it's completed.

My camera on my blackberry curve is not working. ]


I found this solution on Blackberry forums. You'll need to take the battery cover off, and then push on the camera lens, or more accurately, the ring surrounding the camera lens. You should see the image corrected. I just tried it on mine, and it worked like a charm. Easy, cheap, quick fix.

I'd be curious to know if it's an electrical problem, a lighting problem (most likely) or a physical lens issue (focus).

Anyway, try it - it should work.

Camera wont start!


If these two options haven't worked, then the final thing to do is actually delete the entire operating system and reload it from scratch. There is a program called JL_Cmder that allows you to completely erase the operating system and data and programs. Check out the two links below:
