Camera won't start "Another Application is running"

Phone is new.  When I try to use the camera an error message says "Another application is running. Close it, and then start the camera."  I can't see any other applications running. I tried a Master reset (as I haven't loaded anything in yet)

    Unfortunately the problem persits. I see from some digging that this isn't uncommon on this phone and I'll likely have to take it back.

    When trying to use the camera get message "another application is running". Can't find any applications running. Have tried deleting applications then removing the battery and rebooting - still getting same message.

    I dropped my phone off to have it unlocked at a cell repair place since I switched from AT&T to T-Mobile. I tried to use the phone and I got the same message "Another Application is running. close it and then start the camera". I have tried to restart the phone, reset the settings and took out the battery. still does not work. Any help??

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,

Solution:1(model:W580i)

*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.

Solution:3

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

Rgds.,
Nagoor

SOURCE: camera problem it says ''another application is running

Hello. Please close all the application that are using the cam. Restart the computer, then launch the application. This will solve the problem if not uninstall and reinstall the camera drivers, for the drivers either refer to the CD which came along to you or go to the camera manufacturer website ( ex:- HP.com etc) and download and instal.

SOURCE: another application is running plz close all other application &

shut down the phone and do a soft reset by pulling the battery from phone wait 30 sec place battery back in phone and reboot this will set the phone back to the factory settings. if it still doesn't work you may have a software problem check to see what auto functions your phone has and make sure you have shut any non essential functions off this should solve your problem. if not your phone will need to be reset by your provider or phone manufacturer.

SOURCE: cannot open camera, keep shown another application

Remove the battery, memory card. replace the battery after 15 minutes.. Now check your media files and clear off unwanted files. clear any MMS received.
If the camera now reponds well insert memory card after getting it scanned in your PC for errors.
If not the camera software must be reloaded.

Right reset your phone. Connect to a computer, click file transfer. take the phone out, this automatically resets it. After youre phone should work with camera, remember take one picture, if you dont then it wont work again. Same problem with me, and i fixed it.

Camera not working


usually in order to reset the phone you have to unplug the battery, not just turn it off and back on. I recommend unplugging the battery for at least 60 seconds and then plug it back in.
