    Camera Flash

    Bad news my fellow stackers,

    As I was going to play soccer this afternoon, I was rushing outta my house carrying cleats; soccer ball, shin guards; keys and of course my bb. I dropped my bb landing on its back. Anyhow, I just realized now that the camera flash is not working anymore :cry: What can I do to solve this problem besides getting a new bb or trying to fix it. I've already taken the battery out and let it sit for about a half hour and nothing. I also tried taking the battery/sim card/sd card and nothing either. What can i do? I'm very sad. Sorry bb i let you down

    Nothing else the flash is broken. Not worth buying a new phone though. Flash isn't that big of a deal.

    Sucks that it happened.. Next time try to drop the chin guard, or soccer ball instead of your blackberry.. No just kidding my friend, but the flash is not the end of the world... Is it? At least you are able to take pictures... Ever since I upgraded my Os my camara is just not working. Good luck with that. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Thanks for your support . By the way, this is how I fixed it. I used this paper clip I found on my desk. I extended one end of it and poked around the flash but very gently. Then, I smacked my bb upside the head a few times; swirled the paper clip around the flash kindly, smacked three mor times. Tested it and wham! It worked again.
