First of all take a backup of all the important data on the handset and then try reloading the OS if this does not help then get in touch with the service provider.

This is not a software problem.

The camera got knock off contact inside the Blackberry from shipping and daily use.

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 half way there!

Good luck

BlackBerry 8310 when i open.could not start the camera.Close other applications and try opening the camera again. plz tell me soon whats i m doing


It's basically a memory issue. You need so much available memory for the phone to operate, to run the camera and to store the pictues. Have you changed anything about the phone between the time it worked and when it stopped working? How many emails and txt messagess have you stored on the phone? Check the phone status (menu, options, status) for free memory... recommendation is a minimum of 8-10 MB. I'd also suggest getting a memory card (transflash/micro SDHC).

Check out Blackberryforums.com... there is an excellent sticky in the main section about freeing up memory - removing applications and features that you do not need/want/use to free up memory. Typically, I have about 28MB free plus a 4GB SDHC memory card.


close all apps out also

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 is not working/ black screen.it tells me to close apps


Alright, I just had this problem. I dont know how this happened, but some settings were changed. If you go to media and press the menu button then go to options. Now change device memory limit to 15mb and reserved picture memory to 2mb. Now try your camera, it worked for me.

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.
