Camera will not work

When trying to activate camera option a message appears "Another application is running. Close it, and then start the camera" This happens every time you try and use the camera and there are no other applications running. I have tried removing battery and doing a master reset but noting has worked.

Re: Camera will not work

Have you had the phone unlocked? This can be a side effect of a wrongly unlocked phone. Check the 3G forums. there are some threads to do with this.

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.


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.

''Another application is running. Close it, and then start the camera.''

This seem to occur on sveral Sony-Ericsson models.

You want to use the camera and get the message "Another application is running. Close it, and then start the camera".

This is a hardware issue.

I have a K530i.

This is what I do:  I gently knock the phone upper corner on something hard. Then the camera works.

Dear Friends,

I have the same problem (Application is still running close it and start the camera) from last Week onwards, i went to the sony ericson service station, they told some Part(board) to be replaced and It will take 15days hardly,I dint accepted his comments, Then i worked full fledged on this and i got the solutions,


*Remove the memory stick and push the air (from mouth)into the Inner camera.After that it will work Fine.

Reason: If Dust in your camera lens, the error will appear, so it is a matter of sensor.

Solution :2

* Observe the problem little closer, and fix it, b'coz you know your mobile very well than the 3rd Person.


Throughout all the mails regarding that error messages using Googles Search

Don't go Mobile service stations without knowing a nature error, because they ready to cheating us. Becareful.......... Freinds

Any queries,
Call me on my hand phone:
My Number: 9940097172
