Question about AT&T Blackberry Curve 8300 Smartphone

1 Answer

Camera in 8320 won't start. Says close other applications.

Went through rebooting software, which balckberry says usually fixes the problem, but it didn't. Would like to fix it myself because bringing it in for service will probably cost more than replacing it.

2. You need to install a BlackBerry OS file that is specific to your device. The original version, as supplied by the carrier, is the safe choice, but you can use any model specific version. This is not supplied on your BlackBerry CD, Ref: 3 links to BlackBerry's download pages.

3. Once the OS has been installed, you have to prepare it for the device.

Select Start / Computer and select the Drive C: Icon.

Open Program Files / Common Files / Research in Motion / AppLoader.

Navigate to the bottom and delete the file Vendor.XML file.

4. You are now ready to restore your device. Verify that BlackBerry Desktop Manager is NOT running. Plug the device directly into the computer's USB port.

We are about to venture into the bowls of the beast. Windows is not suitable for this job, we are going to invoke the Command line interface with an option switch.

Windows XP: Start / Run... / Command

Windows Vista: Start / Command (type this into 'start search')

Purchased Cruve 8520 on 2 jan 2010 and from first startup having problem with camera startup. Its says "could not open camera, another applications running. close those and try again later. Plz help...


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.

CD rom for installing software to computer for my vivitar vivicam 8320 camera is not working how can i download it?


You don't need the Vivitar software.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

This is not a software problem.

The camera got knock off contact inside the Blackberry.

There is a EZ fix and you can give it a try.

1)Power off the BlackBerry

2)take the back cover off //take the battery out

3)clean the camera with a DRY clean cloth

4)apply gentle pressure around the camera
you may or may not hear a popping sound
this is the sound the camera making contact with the socket.

REMEMBER USE LIGHT PRESSURE

5)place battery and cover back on

6)power on the Blackberry

7)try the camera function

IF YOU ARE GETTING off color or ghost like pic then you are have way there!

Good luck

Take the battery cover off. Take your finger and press on the lens area (below the flash) you should hear a "snap". Don;t over do it though.

Could not start the camera. Close other applications and try opening the camera again


Very gently take the back off of the Blackberry, slightly push in on the camera itself, reboot and the camera should work.

I found out the hard way selling my phone on eBay only to have it returned because the camera didn't work. It's a hardware issue and not a software issue.

If it's still under warranty, try and get a new phone, otherwise --problem solved.

Blackberry 8130 Curve Camera Troubleshooting


I had this problem and I've tried everything posted and nothing worked so I just started messing around with my phone and may have figured it out. Here's what I did.
NOTE: I AM NOT RESPOSIBLE FOR ANYTHING THAT HAPPENS AND YOU ARE SOLEY DOING THIS ON YOUR OWN AT YOUR OWN RESPOSIBLITY. Good Luck

1. Click the Menu Button
2. Scroll to Options Icon (the wrench) and click it
3. Click Advanced Options
4. Click Applications and wait for the Apps to load.
5. Scroll down and delete the apps that you dont need (see what I deleted)
6. I first deleted ICQ Messanger by scrolling over it and selecting the menu button then clicked delete, then clicked Yes and let it reboot
7. After it rebooted I clicked the Camera button on the side and it worked after I rebooted
8. Then I went back in and deleted Yahoo Messanger and let it reboot again. (This is up to you)
9. Last I deleted Windows Live Messenger and let reboot once again. (This is up to you)
I deleted these because I didnt use them anways. These were the only 3 apps that I deleted since I never used them. If you want, you could even delete Brick Breaker if you dont play it but I wouldnt delete any other Apps other than these.

Toshiba A-200 10W webcam locked by another application


I don't know what exactly fixed the problem but I managed to fix it. I'm using a Toshiba Satellite A215 by the way.

Here's what I did
Control Panel >> System Maintenance >> Device Manager

Go to Imaging Devices and right-click "Chicony USB 2.0 Camera" and choose "Update Driver Software"

First I clicked on "Search automatically for updated driver software" but everything was already up to date. So then I went to "Browse my Computer for Driver Software" and then to "Let Me Pick from a List". I updated the USB Video Device and rebooted but that only made it worse I think. Then I tried updating one of the "Chicony USB 2.0 Camera"'s and that did the trick. Yey. So now my webcam works.
