Camera Zoom Feature

For the first two months zoom feature was working fine. For some reason, the zoom feature (trackball) stays on zoom 1X. Can not zoom in. Is there an option feature that I turned off accidently? Need help ... Thanks, Mike

    The same thing happened to mine, it will still take pictures but the zoom is non-responsive. Help would be great.

    Thanks!

    Same thing here. We added 50 Blackberry's to our workplace and half of them have experienced this problem.

    Thank you for the fix. The turning off, removing battery for 30 seconds and rebooting works like a charm!!!!

Had the same problem - the rebooting solution didn't work, Verizon suggested updating software ...went to the website and did so. Works fine now.

My phone was doing the same thing.....zoom feature not working. I turned the phone off and then removed the battery for approx. 30 seconds. I reinstalled the battery and the phone rebooted. The zoom function is now working. This should take care of your problem.

Try adjusting the sensitivity of your trackball. But if its not zooming, but you CAN selet different items on the menu(s), then I'd take it back to the store.

When taking a picture i cannot zoom in or out with the trackball.plus the zoom does not come up on the menu.


try resetting the phone and see if that helps

There is not one.
Press ALT + RIGHT SHIFT + DELETE, when the screen comes
back on do that again. That is the least harmful way to reset
your phone.

Camera won't zoom in or out


It is a glitch but turning your unit off and removing the battery for a few seconds will reset the camera. This is how I fix the problem with mine.

I cannot zoom in/out when taking a picture


maybe the trackball needs cleaning or replacing so take it to a mobile store and have it repaired or replaced.

Browser issue


Hey Mekka121,

I've solved this for someone already. So hopefully this solution will be of help!

The solution is actually quite a simple one:

  1. Open the phone browser, or a web page.
  2. Turn the phone over, so that you see the camera lens. Note that the circular wheel around it has a bumpy grip area. This is so that you can zoom whilst taking photos.
  3. Put our finger on the grip area, and turn the phone back around so you can see the screen. Pulling the wheel anticlockwise will zoom out, pulling the wheel clockwise will zoom in.
Note; that this feature works only in camera and browser mode - and not in general menu.

Hopefully using this you will be able to zoom your screen back to a readable size.

Please reply so I can tell if this was helpful, or I can help you if not.

From Kat.

The web browser is displaying a blue screen and a tiny section of the required page only.


Hi BlackenBetty,

Well, from what it sounds, you've just zoomed right out so that everything on the browser page appears really, really small.

The solution is actually quite a simple one:

  1. Open the phone browser, or a web page.
  2. Turn the phone over, so that you see the camera lens. Note that the circular wheel around it has a bumpy grip area. This is so that you can zoom whilst taking photos.
  3. Put our finger on the grip area, and turn the phone back around so you can see the screen. Pulling the wheel anticlockwise will zoom out, pulling the wheel clockwise will zoom in.
Note; that this feature works only in camera and browser mode - and not in general menu.

Camera zoom


I was informed that if you take your battery out while it was on then it will work when you put in back in after a few minutes. I Just tried it like 2 min. ago and they were right.
