My Torch 9800 camera has a black screen, but the icons at the bottom of the screen are there. It will not take pictures and then also tends to freeze.

This is not a solution, but helps to get the camera functional:
1. Push the dots/BB button. Set Autofocus to "Single Shot".
2. Go to Scene Modes, some people recommend selecting "Face Detection", but I find "Auto" also works well.
3. Under Options - Select Select Picture Review to "Off".
My Torch (9800) now at least have a functional camera with reasonable pictures, as long as I hold the camera steady for taking pics.
Good luck!

  • After removing the ribbon cable (above), carefully lift the metal part indicated by the arrow above. Another ribbon will be attached which should be carefully removed. Take the circuit board & keypad out and you'll be left with what's below. Next remove the top part of the phone by pushing the housing in whilst pulling the hinge, which the top part is attached via, away from the phone. This is the hardest part and you'll need to bend and manipulate the housing the get the hinge out. Be firm but be careful so you don't snap the housing.

  • Your phone should now be as pictured below. The circled areas indicate where you'll need to remove the speaker and ringer in order to solder them to the new screen. The screen can be lifted away from the phone easily at this point.
  • Remove the LCD and replace with new. Reverse the procedure for disassembly and it's finished.
Take care and good luck

Take note, the pictures are that of lg u8120, it has the same disassemble process as lg u8180

Sometimes when I want to take a photo my phone indicates that camera is on standby and camera does not work. When I take a photo the phone shows :"operation failed" and then freezes up for a couple of...

nothing is wrong with the phone, it is a normal function in every phone. If u leave the camera open for some time, it will go on standby mode, u have to turn it off. so better is that the moment u take a picture and there is a gap in taking the other picture, u turn the camera mode off. when u need it again, then again put it on.

Camera: new picture deletes previous one

try checking the settings for your camera, remember what you have done lately on your phone and bring it back to its previous state. play with your camera settings, try a little bit of experimenting on your camera settings and match it with restarting the phone. if this doesn' help you, you may try updating the phone camera firmware itself.  i would not guarantee that this will work but at least give it a try.   1.  from your keypad menu type this code *#6984125*# it will give you the admin setting 2.  select internals 3.  press the message box and type the code *#9072641*# press done, press confirm 4.  select test mode 5.  select video by pressing 6 in the message box and press ok. 6.  press 3 ; camera firmware update 7.  wait till it says success or complete 8.  press back , press end key (call end key) 9.  then restart your phone.
hence, you can do a hard reset or factory reset if you feel you don't want to do the steps above. to do a hard reset or factory reset do the following steps. 1.  back up your files, ex.. contacts, task, notes, photos images stored on your phone memory 2.  disable any locks or security locks, ie, privacy locks, sim locks, network locks.  3.  switch it off, remove battery, sim and memory card 4.  reinsert battery, make sure it is fully charge.. 5.  switch it on 6.  from your keypad type the code *2767*3855# 7.  the phone will do a hard reset and will reset to its factory setting. 
be aware that it will remove all user settings from your phone. 
good luck and regards.

Iphone 3G Erase All content and settings problem

DFU means Device Firmware Update. If a restore using Recovery Mode doesn't work you will want to use DFU Mode as a last resort. When placing your iPhone into DFU Mode it does not load the OS before attempting the restore

For your convenience this tutorial is available in video format also. Click the Watch It button to view the tutorial!

To put the iPhone into DFU mode so you can do an iTunes firmware restore follow these steps:

Step One
Open iTunes and connect the iPhone to your Mac.

Step Two
Press and hold the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button at the same time.

Step Three
After exactly 10 seconds release the Sleep/Wake button. Continue holding the home button until you iTunes pops up a message telling you that it has detected an iPhone in recovery mode.

The iPhone screen will remain black like this:

NOTE***: It may take a few attempts to get your iPhone into DFU mode. Generally, I hold down both buttons then release the Home button just before I think the Apple logo would appear. If you are still holding both buttons down and you see the Apple logo you are holding them down for too long!

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.
