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

Whenever i open up my camera it says "could not start the camera. close other applications and try opening again."


Hi, when a camera says could not open the camera close other application and try again ,means that either to much application where opened at a tie or the camera is corrupted.

First, scan through phone and see if unnecessary applications where open,If not, that means the camera is faulty and will eeed to be replayed.

This message displays any time i try to access the camera. "could not start the camera. close other applications and try opening the camera again". please help.


Hi,

This is what you should do, press and hold the menu key.. you'll get a display in a rectangular form with all programs that are currently running on your blackberry.

You can scroll through the open applications and for you to close all running applications, you'll have to click on your trick ball to get you to that open application and then you close it.

Go over the process of holding the menu key for about 10 seconds again until the rectangular window opens with applications that are currently open.

Click on another program and close it.... do this for all the applications until your have about 4 applications running. Once it's reduced to this you would be able run your camera.

Regards

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.

Restart your cell phone and try it again.

Do you know what the version number is for the software on your phone?

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.
