Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl Smartphone
When i try to start the camera i get this message: "Could not start the camera. Close other applications and try opening the camera again". I Don't think i have a lot of applications open at the same time or running low of free space on my card. Can somebody help me please?
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.

Go to options>status, file free memory needs to be 4 mil bytes, the number listed will be in bytes, go to messages>options>clear cache, all for listed, Go to options>advanced options>applications, if you have bb sample video delete it and/or input supports/language, delete all languages that not necessary, that should free up space,,big space offender is ringtones, third party applications and pictures, not on memory card. Hope you find your memory.

I have had this problem for the last 4 month after upgrading the OS. The camera never worked, but... two or three times, after taking the phone from my pocket, I saw that the camera was working (the phone was not locked). Then, I wondered why the camera worked in my pocket and not when I tried to make it works.
I have realized that if you put your finger covering the flash when you try to start the camera, the camera will start without problems. Not sure if this will work also for you.
Now the flash seems not to work properly when taking pictures but at least I can take some with light.
