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 Livemy blackberry curve camera isn't working!!!! - 2_bing.gif 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.

My camera on my Blackberry 8520 is not working. It keeps coming up with blue and black circles on the screen. pleeeease help...


Not too sure unless I saw it but sounds like it might be a software issue.
You can try to do a Security Wipe of your handheld and see if that cures it.
Keep in mind you need to back everything up before you do that since everything (email, contacts, calendar, pictures) gets cleared and restored to factory settings.
Backup with Blackberry Desktop Manager:
  1. Open the Blackberry Desktop manager
  2. Plug in the USB cable to your phone and computer
  3. Click Back up now

Wipe the Blackberry:
  • 1. Go to Options
  • 2. Security Options
  • 3. General Settings
  • 4. Click Menu button
  • 5. select Wipe Handheld
  • 6. type in blackberry to proceed

Try the camera now. If the camera is still not working then it might be faulty hardware and should be covered under warranty (assuming you did not damage the phone in any way)
Hope this helps.

My BB Curve 8330 is freezing up, black screen, none of the buttons or rollerball will work for a minute or so and then it seems to just come alive. It's been doing this almost daily now for a few weeks.


Try doin a soft reset to see if it fixes your problem(hold down alt, the right shift(button with aA^ on it), and del until the screen goes black). If that dont work, you can take it back to the provider that you got it from(ie sprint ex..) If youve had it less then a yr and they should replace it for you bc the phone comes with a 1 yr manufacturer warranty. Or if you are paying the monthly fee for the warranty then take it back and they will replace it anyway.

My Video Camera icon on Blackberry Curve Disappeared


The camera is an application, if you have Blackberry Desktop manager installed on your home compter you can re-load it through the application loader, which in turn will put the icon back on. You also might need to upgrade the software.The most recent version is 4.5. You can find your version by going to settings>options>about in the phone. If you need to update it, see www.blackberry.com/support and search KB03901.

My storm screen freezes on the black screen when i turn it on it looks like a time colck and then the red light stays on and then goes off....cant get to home screen


Does the screen go black after the Time Clock comes on? When I plug in my storm, the time clock comes on.

If in the time clock, you should be able to press the Blackberry Menu button, and choose close to close out of the Clock. If you are in Bedside mode, you will be asked if you wish to exit.

Click yes.

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.

My blackberry will not let me click on anything


Usually the button membrane under the track ball goes bad. If you're out of warranty try to remove the trackball and push the membrane back in place, clean it if necessary. There is a Blackberry Repair Guide that shows how to open a Blackberry and remove the track ball yourself. Once it is open it's as easy as peeling the membrane off the logic board, scratching its bottom with a flathead screwdriver. There are also third party blackberry repair services that will do this for you.
