I just bought a new Motorola V3x off of a store on ebay and everything on the phone works except for the camera. Every time I try to use the regular camera it goes it the camera screen for about a second and then it cuts back to the home screen and the same thing happens with I try to use the video camera. Normally I would just send it back and get a different phone but I'm leaving for school in a week and I wouldn't get the phone back in time so Im trying to see if theres something I can do to fix it myself or if the camera is just disfunctional and I have to exchange it. Please help!

Re: Camera on Motorola RAZR V3x
Hi moses219....full use of these features are dependant upon your carrier/service provider. Please update your post with the name of your Service Provider, and the complete model number of your phone in it's entirety. Also include in your post the list of accessories that you received with your phone. Please be detailed in your response as each seller provides some variation or another in supplied items with each sale. Even if you're unable to transmit photos or video due to limitations in your service contract, we can still apply 3rd party software to activate these features for storage on your phone/computer transer provided you have the neccessary supplied cable(s).....awaiting your update

The problem is caused by a loose cable connection or the connection from the main board of the phone to the camera not being connected correctly or not at all. The easiest fix is if you have a repair store near by you can drop it off and have it fixed or if you know your way around electronics you can just reconnect the flex cable to the board and viola it will work.
hi, this isn't a solution but it might help explain the possible problem. The v3x camera has a connector in order to connect it to the rest of the phone parts. If that connector is loose or possibly has broke you will get error messages. The only way to know is to have a technician take the v3x apart and check. The V3X is not as easy as the v3 or v3xx to take apart and you must have the correct tools. If needed the camera unit can be replaced so that you don't have to purchase a new phone. If you can find a technician in your area you can ask if he has a v3x that he uses for parts. It would be less expensive. Good Luck.
your camera is faulty and needs to be replaced or it could be a problem with the phone. I suspect the camera once everything else is working o.k. You need 2 take your phone to the nearest service technician to get it replaced.
Replacing the camera is fairly easy from my experience as a repair tech.
