1. Sync phone with iTunes to back up your data.
2. Choose Restore option from iTunes window (first screen when you plug the phone into iTunes)
3. Before you restore from backup, test the camera again. If it works, then it was a software related issue. If it doesn't, the camera module is not working and needs to be replaced.
4. Restore from backup, or take the phone in for repair if the shutter is still not opening.
If the camera shutter won't open in the Camera app, it could be a hardware or software issue.
Turning the iPhone off then back on should resolve the issue. If not, a Restore in iTunes would help.
If neither of these help, it could be the camera's connection inside of the iPhone. You could set up a Genius Bar appointment at your local Apple Store.
This shutter problem could possibly a cause of something that has corrupted the software.
For a quick fix try the following:
Double tap the home button.
Then hold in any of the icons that have come up in the multitasking section at the bottom of the screen.
Once the x buttons appear you need to kill the camera app.
If this doesn't solve your problem and software restore or update via iTunes should resolve your issue.
phone 3gs has additional accessiblity functions like ‘voice over’ This function gives u addtional use of iphone with tapping by using two and three fingers Tap three fingers three times on your iphone screen. It will deactivate the screen curtain and your screen will display as usual. If not resolved try resetting your iphone by holding down home and sleep/wake button for 10 seconds.. if still not resolved restore your iphone using itunes…..before restoring ALWAYS make a backup. If these steps do not resolve the issue, there is a good chance that the backlight has go out. I hope this helps you! Good luck and please vote if this helps.
there is a hardware issue. Apple
should give you a replacement. If you're out warranty, you can try to
open it and camera module. If that fails you need
a new logic board. You can get the part on Ebay or atiPhone Repair and there is a free guide that shows you how to open a kindle and install parts at iPad Repair Guide.
I have had the same problem. I backed up all photos/videos from the phone and then deleted them, then rebooted the phone (off/on). The camera functioned after that. Then I restored the photos to the phone.
