Camera won't zoom in

All of a sudden my camera won't zoom in anymore. I tried using the rollerball and the volume keys but nothing happens. It worked 2 days ago and now it just stopped working. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks...

    Yes this is correct. It's a software change so it needs to reconnect with the server to download the new software. This can be done by taking out the battery while turned on, like someone already said. When it powers back on the camera will work. Thanks for all the help...

Mike,

I don't think it is your BB. Mine too has stopped zooming when it worked fine last week.

Do you know if BB did an auto update to the software. I am not aware of any.

Thanks guys! I was about to take my BB in for service b/c of this! Glad I found your solution online...worked like a charm! I had tried turning my phone off/on, but didn't think of a battery pull.

Mine just stopped working a couple of days ago too. I took the battery out and waited a little bit and it fixed it.

Mine did the same. To fix:
With phone turned on remove battery. Wait 30 seconds. The put battery in
This forces a reset

Don't take it to any normal technician. Go to Authorized service of LG and get it done. It is not any software issue, i think it is hardware problem.

Pearl 8130 Camera feature-i can no longer zoom in and out using the roller ball. How can I fix this?


The first time this happened to me - I took the battery out - when put back in the zoom worked again. After a while the zoom stopped working and just now my rollerball wouldn't scroll down. I tried the solution posted about taking the battery out and doing a figure of 8 with phone facing down on a printed page - it fixed both problems. I hope this helps.
