Camera Problem Every time i take a picture it returns back to the main screen without taking a picture, it focuses and makes the shutter sound but no picture.... Video works fine. I have tried turning the phone on and off, still the same. I have tried updating the phone through SEUS, still the same. I have tried formating the memory stick, still the same. Can you help?

IPhone camera doesn't work. Screen goes black. Doesn't save pictures.

That sounds like a software problem not saving pictures but does the shutter open up at all? Did the camera ever work or is it only recent that the problems are happening? I would suggest that you back up your phone then restore it back to its factory settings, after that sync it as a new iphone as any past bugs would just be reinstalled into it and cause the same problems. The latest software would then be installed in the iphone at the same time. Try not to download any apps for a day or so and see if that makes any difference.

Sometimes when I want to take a photo my phone indicates that camera is on standby and camera does not work. When I take a photo the phone shows :"operation failed" and then freezes up for a couple of...

nothing is wrong with the phone, it is a normal function in every phone. If u leave the camera open for some time, it will go on standby mode, u have to turn it off. so better is that the moment u take a picture and there is a gap in taking the other picture, u turn the camera mode off. when u need it again, then again put it on.

RE: LG CU920 camera focus problem

Press the shutter button partially down and hold it there. The image centering box will turn green momentarily and then you can take the picture and it will be clear. I almost returned the phone because the pictures were blurry before I figured this out.

About camera shutter sound

HI Maddy, You can turn off the shutter sounds in teh settings menu. This will turn off the sound altogether so not ideal but at least a work around.

Camera on a W375

I had the exact same camera blacked-out malfunction. I followed booj's advice and it cured the problem. What I did: I turned off the w375 phone by pressing and holding the red button (not just closing the clam shell, like I normally do), after the phone powered down, I restarted it by pressing and holding the green button. After it powered up, the camera at first had the same black screen, then, all of a sudden, the view finder started working normally and it now takes pictures correctly. - MGB

Sony ericsson w580i camera problem

I have found a solution to this problem without sending your phone back and/or paying to get it fixed. Now you can do this on you own personal computer and only takes around 5-10 mins depending on your internet and computer speeds. Ok below are some simple instructions to follow. Please give me a 'Fix ya!' if i helped :)


1. Go to either - to view some information on updating your phone or go to - to download the application straight away.

2. Once you have downloaded and installed the program, open it, the program may download program updates and such - this is normal.

3. Once everything is open it will ask you for your language, so in my case, English (United Kingdom) and just follow the on screen instructions, everything basically self explaniary.

Note: This will wipe everything off the PHONES memory, take your memory card out to make sure you dont lose anything off that. If you think this is going to be a waste of time then you're wrong as this fixed my camera problem..

Also note: It will say your phone has the latest software installed, just click continue anyway as this will wipe your phone and install everything again, FIXED! :)

Hope I helped.
