Hi,this is a result of the fact that the connection between the camera module and the mainboard has come loose,here is how to fix it;
1.Since you have been working on phones,the first thing is to disassemble your phone,
2.Afterwards,You'll notice a connector running from the mainboard, through a hole, to the camera module. It's pretty springy and this raises it off the motherboard, putting a little strain on the connector which joins to the camera module. Press down on the brown/black connector in the hole and you'll notice a little give because it will have come loose over time. Just to make sure, press down on the other end of the connector where it joins the motherboard.

3.Re-attach the display and keypad, and without re-clipping the cover, quickly test the phone by re-inserting the battery (with sim card inserted) and trying the camera. If all is working, remove the battery and re-attach the cover
4.If the camera still isn't working, try again - you might need to remove the connector between the camera module and the motherboard and re-attach it.


Thanks and take care

Device can't understand voice commands.Keeps asking for commands and tries to call wrong contacts.


press and hold power and volume buttons to reset the device,pair it with the radio or phone and start over,when doing anything with voice you need to get rid of ALL background noises,including radio and air,(windows down),

LG VX8700 - No sound coming from speaker


Sounds just like the problem I had. I took the phone apart and removed the internal speaker. Tried the contacts with another speaker from another phone...and it worked.This leads me to believe that the internal speaker has failed. I am now on the hunt to get a replacement speaker.

I've had an LG VX8700 for almost 2 years. I'm suddenly getting a Camera Start Error and the camera won't work, but 5 minutes later it will. Does that mean I'm coming up to the end of my phones life?


NOT UR PHONES LIFE, JUST THE CAMERA LIFE. THERE IS A SOFTWARE ISSUE. ALOT OF TIMES IT DOES MORE HARM TO TRY TO HAVE IT FIXED BY THE CARRIER THAN TO JUST GO AHEAD AND RENEW UR CONTRACT AND GET A NEW PHONE.

When i try to start my camera on my lg vx8700 it reads CAMERA START ERROR


That could be a hardware or software problem. Back-up the memory stored inside the phone, then have it reformatted and new software installed. If that doesn't work, bring it to a technician and have him take a look. If the phone came with a warranty you can have it fixed for free.

Seems I may have the same problem, I just returned the first Jawbone, second one is displaying the same problem - it pairs but then won't recognize or interact. Sad if it's my phone.
