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...
