Do a reset on the phone take out the batery and put it back in, if you have already doen that and it doesnt work still i would reset the settings byy goign into security options in your settigns tab and to reset settings to factory settings. but put all your pics, rigntones and contacts saved on your computer first. do you have a memory card? if you get one this could fix the issue as well

I had the same problem and since my video camera was still working, I knew it was not a hardware issue.

the battery pull worked for me, now everything is fully operational.

good luck!

Phone turns into a white screen with hourglass in the middle then shuts off. happens several times a day.


Hi it is because the BlackBerry Pearl 8100 smartphone cannot initialize the BlackBerry Device Software or there is a corrupt operating system file.
To resolve this issue, reload the BlackBerry Device Software on the BlackBerry Pearl 8100 smartphone.
To perform an installation of the BlackBerry Device Software using BlackBerry Desktop Manager version 4.5 to 5.0, perform the following steps:
1) Open BlackBerry Desktop Manager. 2) Connect the BlackBerry smartphone to the computer and open the BlackBerry Desktop Manager. 3) Double-click Application Loader.
4) Click Start under Update Software to start the installation process.
5) Type your BlackBerry smartphone password, if prompted, and click OK.
6) Select Options under Device Software Options.
7) Select the check boxes next to the names of the applications to be loaded, and then click Next.
8) Click OK > Next > Finish.
9) When the process has completed, the message The loading operation was successful will appear.
10) Click Close to return to the BlackBerry Desktop Manager.
I hope this information will be helpful to you.

My camera won't start it says other applications are open


Can happen if switching applications from the blackberry key menus - leaves a trail of applications open in memory. Can try shutting down and re-booting the phone (most thorough way is to take out battery when it's off and put it in again after a minute), then try the camera before you use anything else. Does that help?

How do i reset blackberry curve 8330 to factory settings


are you actually going to the menu button and selecting close on each screen or just hitting end or the return button to get to the home screen? If you don't actually select close in the menu screen some progams remain open. go into all applications when there press the menu key and scroll down to close this should help

Camera Won't Start!


First, try a hard reset on the device: remove the battery from the BlackBerry while it is still powered on. Leave it out for 30 seconds, then reinsert.

If that doesn't work, then you may need to add a memory card (micro SD/SDHC) to the device.

Problem with camera on my pearl


I have had this problem for about 8 months. I have tried everything and nothing works. I accidently found out a fix:

It appears the problem of my Pearl was the bad connection of the camera. When I start the camera, if I squeeze the phone body hard around camera area to make a better connection, the camera works right away. This works for me 100%. I hope you have the same luck.
