    Question Camera crashes my Pearl

    Advertisement



    I couldn't find anything on this when I searched, but my AT&T 8100 Pearl
    crashes every time I try to use the camera on it. I tried pulling the battery,
    simm card and memory card and leaving them out for an hour or so and
    that worked once and for about a day. I've got the latest OS version (108)
    and it still crashes. It started crashing about a month ago when I was still using
    v .74 which is what got me into the whole updating the OS every time a new one
    is released.

    Has anyone else had this problem and if you have, is there a fix for it?
    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    sounds like a hardware short to me... is your flash turned on?

    Maybe it is a hardware issue, but it's just the camera app.

    I don't know what the settings are because it crashes every time I
    start the camera app. The interface comes up but with a gray screen
    where the image would be and the BB becomes unresponsive immediately.
    It's really strange.

    Is it possible that the memory is really full on the device? Just a guess.

    Here are my status numbers:

    File Free: 19,141,400 Bytes
    File Total: 64,356,352 Bytes


    I don't know if that's considered full or not. How does that
    compare to everyone else's?

    I believe it is a hard ware problem and not a rare one either...

    Yeah, I saw that post as well. The problems seem similar but at least
    his doesn't reboot the device every time. Thanks for your suggestions.

    Did you do an update of your OS recently?

    I've reloaded the OS five times so I'm not sure if that's it. Thanks though...

    try going back to an older OS and then re-update with a newer one. If that doesn't work, exchange it. That stinks. Maybe you can get the newer pearl depending on who you're with!
    Color---it's nothing but a hue of the rainbow...why do people place such importance in it?

    Weird... reloading the os worked when this was happening on my sister's phone.
    Oh well, I would return it.

    Re: Camera crashes my Pearl

    I've gone back to my original OS, then updated to the newest one and it still does it.
    Must be a hardware issue like y'all said. I'll see what at&t says. Thanks for the advice.
