Hi Guys, when I slide the cover off the main camara, after a short delay I get the above message. I've tried restoring the original phone settings but it hasn't made any difference. I'd appreciate any suggestions. Many thanks

    I also had same problem, do as following:



    1. Take out memory card by card removal procedure

    2. now switch on camera in without the card in slot

    3. Switch the camera to still mode

    4. Now put the card back in slot.

    This way at least your still camera will work, don't change it to video mode. I think video mode has some problem and to get it corrected properly you may have to visit customer care

    i had the same problem and i just did what most of them did by removing the memory card and putting it back in. so, does that mean that the problem is in my memory card and is it really necessary for me to reformat it? :'((

Hi there!

I had this same problem, just format your memory card, and the problem will be solved, but remember it will erase all your datas in your memory card, so you better have a back-up somewhere. I hope it will work for you.

I have encountered this problem and I went to the Nokia Care near me... They have reflashed the firmware and the girl who fixed it showed me the camera works. Then I was off, but after a few steps I tried the camera and the "hardware failure: restart camera" message popped up again. What she did is to remove the memory card and tried the camera and what do you know? the camera worked! So I reformatted my memory card and everything is well in the world again.

Its the camera slide, not the phone. I have one with the same problem. Simply stick a bit of blue tack on the battery by the contacts for the camera, place the cover back on, and the problem goes away. Its dodgy contacts, thats all.

I'm usually activating my (N79) camera from stand-by, by sliding open the lens cover. From time to time the program crashes with the message "system error" and in order to use it again, I need to restart...


Try updating the Symbian OS by using your PC suite's software updater. If you have transferred lots of file on the attached memory card, try reinserting the card and let the phone read the contents before operating it. If problem now persist after this, you might be having hardware problem.
