    thanks.. i didnt read this post before.. but what i did was to click on "Save to Phone Memory" option shifting it to phone memory from memory card. That way the camera worked. Later i switched it back to Memory Card and the camera remained fine.. but thankyou anyway! :)

    When I press the button to go into camera, it is fine but when I press the button and take a picture the little swirling arrow comes up and then it says Camera On Standby.. I tried some other websites and they all said to switch over from the phone memory back to the memory card and i did that and it still isn't working... Anyy ideas on how to fix this?

    thank you aiman1 - did what you said about switching memories, and it worked - I feel really thankful, sitting here on a gray summer day in Denmark and being helped by somebody you do not know at all but just found on google - and finally my camera works again :)

There's a menu in Options to continue/resume using the camera when it's on standby.
Go into the menu and reset the phone to original settings, (You might loose all your data). Or try switching the phone off and taking the battery out then leaving the phone alone for 1 hour.

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.

hi there, i had the same problem with my phone, you can easily sort it out, all you need to do is go to menu and open gallery and you need to delete some pictures/tones, videos from memory card. The reason why your camera goes on standby each time you take a picture is because there is not enough memory to store your pictures. hope it helps hamida
