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.

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.

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.

Camera won't start "Another Application is running"

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:

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.
