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

Whenever i open up my camera it says "could not start the camera. close other applications and try opening again."


Hi, when a camera says could not open the camera close other application and try again ,means that either to much application where opened at a tie or the camera is corrupted.

First, scan through phone and see if unnecessary applications where open,If not, that means the camera is faulty and will eeed to be replayed.

This message displays any time i try to access the camera. "could not start the camera. close other applications and try opening the camera again". please help.


Hi,

This is what you should do, press and hold the menu key.. you'll get a display in a rectangular form with all programs that are currently running on your blackberry.

You can scroll through the open applications and for you to close all running applications, you'll have to click on your trick ball to get you to that open application and then you close it.

Go over the process of holding the menu key for about 10 seconds again until the rectangular window opens with applications that are currently open.

Click on another program and close it.... do this for all the applications until your have about 4 applications running. Once it's reduced to this you would be able run your camera.

Regards

Could not start the camera. Close other applications and try opening the camera again


Very gently take the back off of the Blackberry, slightly push in on the camera itself, reboot and the camera should work.

I found out the hard way selling my phone on eBay only to have it returned because the camera didn't work. It's a hardware issue and not a software issue.

If it's still under warranty, try and get a new phone, otherwise --problem solved.

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.
