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.

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.

Close the other video streaming application to start video

Your camera is already online. Double click the camera icon in the lower right task bar and it will work. That is the problem, the program is trying to run twice. Again, the camera is online and working and the access to it is in the task bar at the bottom. You, of course, can change these setting if you like.

Problem with camera on my pearl

I have had this problem for about 8 months. I have tried everything and nothing works. I accidently found out a fix:

It appears the problem of my Pearl was the bad connection of the camera. When I start the camera, if I squeeze the phone body hard around camera area to make a better connection, the camera works right away. This works for me 100%. I hope you have the same luck.
