    This is my 5th LGVX8700. I went through 6 LGVX8600s. This is the second phone that I've received the "Camera Start" error. On the first phone it occurred right away. I have had this phone for approximately six months now and just started receiving the error yesterday.


1 Answer

I went through 3 8600's and this is my first 8700 (refurb though). I am having the same problem with the camera. It started a few days ago, just once in a while. Now it is all of the time. VZ said to bring it to a tech at the store or swap it out for another. I read on another forum that the tech should try updating the Firmware to T87VZV02 (OR O2) not sure what he typed. I'm gunna give it a try. I hope it works!!! Good luck with yours!

Camera tart Error

I had this same issue! What I did to correct mine was this:

The camera lens is on something like a teeter totter. It has just come dislodged. With a lot of force (more than you would think it could take) place your phone on a table and put your thumb on the area that the flash/lens is, (mine was in the left corner) and press hard until you hear a snap or click. It took me several attempts because I was afraid of breaking my phone. But after I realized it was broke anyway, I pushed REAL hard and it worked!
Good luck!

Preview error comes up when i press the camera button

Hi, sorry for late answer. I think it is a common problem on flip or slide mobile phones. I had the same problem and i fixed it by replacing the ribbon flex cable. They are very cheap on ebay (i got one for $2.35 with free P&P)...
Here it is a video that may help you.
Hope it'll works on you too...

Phone won't recieve signal

Try to power cycle the phone by removing the battery for a minute then place it back in, try to check if there is a signal on the phone. If it keeps on having the same issues you need to call your service provider for network related issues.

My camera shortcut

I had the same problem with my Omnia right out of the box. I fixed it by changing what the button does and saving it. Then I changed it back to Camera and it started working!

Camera start error

Hi everyone! Please for the love of God stop slamming your phones shut to fix this. The problem is that the metal contacts which tell the phone that it is open become dirty after years of use. It is a somewhat flawed design which allows dirt to fall inside the phone. To fix it, just remove the screws from the back behind the battery cover and *genty* pry the back from the rest of the phone. Now, if you look at where the screen connects, on one side you will see a wire going in and on the other side you will see a copper contact that touches the hinge on the screen. This is what you need to clean. Get some solvent (electronics cleaner from radio shack works well) and some canned air. First blow it out with air, then hit it with solvent, then blow it out with air again. Reassemble and problem solved!

Press your ok (menu) button.Don't pay any attention to what is on the screen,just press 000000 (6 zeros). This will take you to the service menu.Scroll down to #6 (H/W Test).Go to camera test and select on.Your phone will turn itself off and back on. Try your camera and see if it works.
