Question about Sony Ericsson Walkman W810i Cellular Phone

Camera button no longer works

I have been on Esato and others looking for a solution....
this has been a great camera phone. I use it at work as a neuro doc- photos of patient movement disorders, rashes, etc. for documentation and training. Recently, the camera button no longer takes a picture. I figured out a workaround by pressing 6 at the same time, now that has stopped working.
things i have tried:
1) Flashing the camera phone
2) emptying camera memory/photos
3) checking software configuration

How much would this cost to fix? I am beyond warranty.
Many thanks

Samsung galaxy S3 phone camera not working..When turn on camera,no other function button on screen works & it says "camera failed"..any help? Many thanks :)


Let me guess.. you are using an external SD card, correct?
And, now you are having this camera failed issue. It's due a corruption with the SD card.

1) Go to Settings>Application Manager>(swipe right to left until you see) ALL>(Scroll down the list to "Camera") Tap on Camera> press "Clear Cache".
2) Power off your phone.
3) Take the back cover off your phone.
4) Remove your SD card
5) Restart the device
6) Wait a couple minutes for the phone to fully load. Then, re-insert the SD card.

The camera issue should be fixed.

7) go to the camera app, in the camera settings change how the camera saves photos to phone storage only (NOT to SD card, this is where the problem occurs). Doing so will help the camera take photos faster. The SD card is too slow for the camera. After taking your photos, you can move them to the SD card to clean up space and back up your photos in case your phone ever crashes or you ever become locked out of your device. I would use the SD card to back up all files not just photos.

LG Chocolate: Camera Button reboots phone


The problem was solved by replacing the flex cable that connects the two halves together. My phones screen is back, all the buttons work, and the camera button no longer reboots the phone (also going to camera through mypix doesn't cause reboot either). The cable was very easy to replace and took me 10 minutes at most only using a screw driver and the info in the link I provided ealier.

I Have a Samsung SCH-r610. I have only had it for a couple days and its a great phone other than this one problem. Every so often, the camera will choose not to work. I will turn the camera on but the...


I had the same problem. I discovered the answer. From my experiences, it seems to happen when I zoom in. Then it stops taking pictures (Capture button does not work) I sent my phone in to get fixed, and they said they replaced something, but i tried zoom again, it stopped working. So i was like wtf.
Anyways, how to solve this problem is to set your camera on the resolution / quality that DOES NOT allow zooming. After that has been completed, turn the phone off. Then back on and it will work.
