Question about Nokia 6233 Cellular Phone
Hi, their are 2 causes to the problem you are having, now the first problem you may have is that if your battery is low then this will give you the message you are getting as the camera uses a lot of power so if the battery is low the camera will shut off and not work.
one thing to try is let the battery go totally flat so as the phone wont even light up keep playing ring tones or something to flatten the battery a bit quicker then when the phone switches off wait a minute or 2 then switch it back on keep doing this until the battery is totally dead.
once its dead do a full recharge doing this refreshes the battery and helps maintain a longer battery life.
once you have done this try your camera and check if its working or not.
If after doing the above it still dont work then this would indicate a fault with the camera itself now the problem could be down to the phone being dropped or banged about or it could be down to it getting damp so if it still dont work try this
switch the phone off
hold it in one hand
hit the phone into the palm of the other hand
doing this will sometimes shock the camera into working again if the problem is to do with a faulty connection
so give that a try and see what happens
failing the above the problem is going to be with the camera itself and the chances are this is going to need replacing, this is a common problem and the parts are cheap to buy how ever the job is not ease to do as it requires soldering onto the circuit board so if none of the above works your only sollution to solving this would be to take your phone into a small phone shop as these are cheaper than big brand shops and ask them to change the camera for you.
one other thing you can try is make sure you have got enough memory left on your phone to store any pictures the camera is going to take not doing this will result in the camera not working so delete some old pictures and messages etc just to rule out it being a full memory problem.
let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
