VZW 8330 - Camera Could Not Start ERROR from hell!
Hello ALL -
Great SITE! Great Board! Im impressed how much others help others in the BB world. I recently have gone BB and cant live without it! In 4 months I have changed phones 4 times trying to figure out what was best for me... I settled on the 8330 and love size features etc except i keep having this camera issue after using he cam approx 10 times. VZW cant help and keeps switching phones to a new one... my IT admin (cough Ahole) keeps getting pissed having to change my pin on the server.... (he too is new to BB and isnt very swift) below is what I have and what I tried to get it resloved:
Mem Free = 34969382 bytes
Only 3rd party AP this time is VLingo did not have on first phone with issue
I keep getting the following when trying to open camera:
"Could not start camera. Close other applications and try openingcamera again."
I have tried the following to resolve:
Had 2gig Memory Card installed
Removed all Logs
Pulled hair out
called VZW (they fixed by sending new phone...) Problem is back after 10 camera starts
Anyone else experience this ir have a suggestion? Im willing to try everything, even if it involes kidnapping, extorsion, torturing a vzw tech (just kidding PETA freaks)
Thanks in advance =o)
I saw this on an AT&T 8310 and I tried all of the above (besides the hair pulling and torturing a cellular rep, although now that I think about it......) I had reloaded the OS, battery pulls, all of the stuff above. My friend called in to AT&T and with a battery pull, the camera started up again...... Maybe luck? Now the phone doesn't charge if the mini USB plug is fully inserted and no computer will recognize it. They're sending a new phone. I searched for fix but nothing ever showed up. Maybe this will be resolved once 4.5 is released.
Thanks for the reply. I think ill try to bring my brokenberry in to vzw tonight if I have a chance.
I had this problem with my first vzw curve. After they sent a new one and upgrading to OS 4.5, I haven't had any problems.
I've been trying to find a good version of 4.5 but have been unsuccesful. I was going to pm you and ask but I'm too much of a board newb and can't pm until I hit 10 posts. Gosh
Is there a newer os out the thats not 4.5? I gonna look into it a post back for you
Welcome to PinStack!
Just curious? Did you ever try deleting Vlingo, then battery pull? Sometimes 3rd party apps can cause major issues.
Yeah we completely wiped the phone and nothing.
Thans jeff! Everyones help is greatly appreciated!
Just sent you some information. Hope it helps!
