I got my PDA used and i have tried to the camera. Nothing comes up. I had to actually go inot the windows directory in the phone to try to acess it but it doesnt work. I did a soft and a hard restart but none of those worked. It's like the camera is not even part of the pda

might be a software issue u can check it by upgrading ur PDA Firmware from Sonyericsson.com go to ur phone page and select Software update and download application connect ur pda and get latest updated Firmware after that u will see ur camera and video owrk otherwise ur Camera Hardware unit is faulty u need to get it replaced EXPERIA is getting more and more hardware faults as it is used Camera and Touch Panel Fault is frequent
Try to do a hard reset and then try again to open your camera. If still doesn't work, and you are experiencing software error, I suggest to bring your pda to a service center to further check your pda.
The problem is related to TomTom software. There are two methods to solve this problem. (1) You can choose to install TomTom 6.1 which has solved the sound problem if TomTom V6.1 is available for end user. (2) Find “BtCoreIf.dll”in Windows directory and rename it to "BtCoreIf.old”. Then, reset the device to solve the sound problem.
I changed the battery in my PDA recently and encountered the same problem. The fix for me was in the camera circuit board cable, the one at the top. For some reason, there is no actual plug for cable to go in, so I thought it just rested as is. The cable must actuly be pulled gently back towards the top of the PDA and then aligned with the contact pins from the circuit board. Again, it doesn't actually plug in to anything, but just rests against the pin connector. Be careful reassembling, because the ribbon cable can pop out of place easily (it essentially becomes "spring loaded" when put in place). Hope this works for you.
This is the suggestion they provide on O2 website for such problems:
Perform a soft reset (PDA phone) or re-boot the device (Smartphone) and test again.
Perform a hard reset (PDA phone) or return to default settings (Smartphone) and test again. (read below before dong this)
Check that the application still fails to execute after you upgraded the ROM (OS) to the latest revision. If you haven't upgraded your ROM (OS) do so now and check again.
But before doing the hard reset, I suggest you try installing other camera software for windows mobile 5 and check if the camera still working (not a hardware problem). If its still fail, try the hard reset after backing up all you data.
difficult to say, on some tis the mylar printed circuit cable goes bad. on some its the ccd imager, best thing to do would be to buy a new camera module for it and install, not a difficult procedure. but involved and the device is very static sensitive, so you should have full esd pro and a true earth ground. i can do this repair myself as i operate an ebay based pda refurb. tpsceo@gmail if youre interested, i might be able to scare up a camera module to sell, have to check my inventory....
