camera malfunction 8300
Hello- wondering if anyone has run into this problem with the 8300 camera. All of a sudden, when I open the camera, the picture in the viewfinder is in a black/white/sepia negative type image. Then, when the camera should be showing the preview, it's just blank black, and if I try to go into the media folder, the thumbnail doesn't even show up- it's just the photo icon.
Does anyone have any ideas?

Reason: correct device
So do you have a 8300 with that issue or is it an 8100?
1. Have you tried doing a hard reboot on your phone?
2. Have you gone to your options section of your camera menu and make sure your color effect as at normal?
i've hard rebooted, checked all the settings, cleaned out all the hardware as best i can... coming here was a last resort.

Reason: remove unneeded dialog
You may need an OS update to try and fix the camera issue. I've seen a similar issue with an 8310, but we tried wiping everything with JL_CMDR and reloaded everything and the problem remained. We had to get the device replaced. Hopefully your issue won't be this extreme.
