IPhone camera shutter won't open! - 3Gs

The app opens but the shutter never opens to allow you to take a picture or video. Sometimes restarting it works but then in freezes and the phone goes black. Any thoughts on to what to do as I am not home or near iTunes to restore?

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 at iPhone Repair and there is a free guide that shows you how to open a kindle and install parts at iPad Repair Guide.

The camera is stuck in the shutter mode


Hi John,First thing to try is restarting your phone.Hold the power button on the top of your phone until it shows the red arrow with "Slide to power off". Slide it. When the phone has gone dark hold the power button again until the apple logo shows. When the phone has finished give your camera a try.
Good Luck!

IPhone 3Gs A1303 camera not working! The shutter is not opening, before it use to work but not workin now..


For starters. There's no actual "shutter" on the camera. That's just an on screen animation.
You might need to just restore/update your phone through iTunes to fix the software issues.

What is the differeance between iphone g3 to phone gs3?


the main difference between the iphone 3g and iphone 3gs is the speed. but here are the specifications for both phones
weight: the 3gs is slightly heavier at 135g memory: iphone 3g only has two options an 8gb or a 16gb whereas for the iphone 3gs it has 8gb/16gb/32gb camera: the iphone 3g has 2mp camera that can only take pictures while the ihpne 3gs has a 3.15mp camera that can also capture videos cpu/processor: iphone 3g has ARM 11 412 MHz, PowerVR MBX-Lite graphics while the iphone 3gs has 600 MHz ARM Cortex A8 processor, PowerVR SGX535 GPU. So the 3gs is faster and it means less or no lag on apps
the 3gs has a digital compass
and the 3gs has a longer battery time than the 3g.
to summaarize, the iphone 3gs is faster, has longer battery life, and has a bigger memory (as it comes with a 32gb version).

How to take a video recording in my apple iphone 8gb


When you open the camera application, on the bottom right you will see a little slider bar with a video camera choice and a still camera choice. Keep in mind, I believe this is only available on 3GS or iPhone 4...if you have an iPhone 3G I don't think it will work with the standard camera app.

There is an app I believe called Qik video that you could download which would allow you to do video on an iPhone 3G

Camera shutter wont open iphone 3g


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.

IPhone camera shutter won't open! - 3Gs


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.
