    i tried both things, master reset and update software, but it still didnt work... PLEASE if anyone has had this problem and got it fixed let me know how to fix it, my phone isnt under warranty and it would cost 100 to send it in, and for that i can get a new phone

  • szshaps Feb 20, 2008

    ok, so is there anything i can do about it??

    I have the same problem.

    My phone worked perfectly for the first month, then as soon as the warrantly was up, camera malfunctions.

    When I turn on the camera, it seems to work for almost a second (black screen, icons, etc) but then goes back to my main screen/menu/whatever I was doing before.

    Frikken annoying is what it is.

    I've tried all of the downloads and resets (even the ones that wipe EVERYTHING) with no luck yet.

    And the cost of sending it/taking it in is not worth it.

    pee.ess. The real piss-ass thing about the whole situation is that I got this phone to replace my old Nokia, same contract (they reset the time) and same plan. My Nokia had a very nice extra warrantly on it that cost me a few bucks. If I never claim this warrantly (which I haven't/wont) then at the "end" of my first three years I get it back as a credit. So basically Rogers is holding onto my money, won't let me use my warrantly for my current phone, and won't give me my credit/money back for another year.

Did you try to master reset th phone? If that didn't help try to flash the software on your phone with the Sony Ericsson update service.

    If these two things don't help then most probably your camera module has malfunctioned.

HI Jessikah_lol,
Try to perform a hard reset by pressing the power button and the main round menu button for about 10 seconds until the screen flashes and restarts. Hope this helps!

Sony Ericsson Secret Codes
Sony Ericsson Secret Menu: -> * <- <- * <- *
(-> means press joystick, arrow keys or jogdial to the right and <- means left.)
You'll see phone model, software info, IMEI, configuration info, sim lock status, REAL time clock, total call time and text labels.
You can also test your phones services and hardware from this menu (main display, camera, LED/illumination, Flash LED, keyboard, earphone, speaker, microphone, radio and ******** tests)
IMEI Number: *#06#
Lockstatus: <- * * <-
Shortcut to last dialed numbers: 0#
Shortcut to sim numbers: On main menu type a number and press #
If you change the language from default to any other language, then it may be difficult to switch to default language. The shortcut is very simple. Just press < 0000 > . < stands for left arrow button or joystick and > stands for right arrow button or joystick.
Try these codes at your own risk! We don't accept any complaints.
Some of these codes may not work.

The top of the screen does not respond to touch anymore

you could try and use itunes to restore it or do a complete restore on the phone itself if you go into system --> general features and reset / restore

Not sure if thats exactly where it is but its somewhere around there.

If that does not help then you will need to call apple or your cell provider to claim either on the insurance or see if apple will send you a new one as there is obviously a fault with the touch screen itself.

How do i take pics?

Well, the easiest way is to use the botom button on the right side (edge) of your phone.

The other way is to press the Main Menu button on the main screen. This is the middle icon at the bottom of the screen that has 4 dots then go to Media Center.
Select Pictures & Video then Take Picture.

Point and press the camera button (bottom right edge)

To switch between Video and Pictures, press and hold down the camera button until either the camera icon or the video (movie camera) icon appears.

Once you take the picture, you have to select the second icon down on the right to save it to the phone.

Your phone's firmware is corrupted. Its got nothing to do with the lens. Flash it with R4CK003 firmware and it will be fine..

helow hanan, let's first consider the software problem with your phone try reprogram your phone, maybe the program of your camera get faulty. But be reminded that your file saved on fon memory will be deleted. If it doesnt work we can conclude that your camera was damaged due to the dropped you made.
