    camera zoom stopped working!

    Advertisement



    Hey,

    It used to work when i got it.. do nto know what setting I've chenged - still gettin gto know the keypad and options, you know - camera zoom has stopped at 1x. I checked options in camera. Does not seem anything I've changed to lock the zoom. Even the +/- buttons are not changing. Any help is appreciated... Have read in this forum that you can set zoom off and on.. not sure how..

    Does up/down on the track ball adjust the zoom at all?

    Do a Battery Pull, this seems to fix it most times

    It is also advised to turn the device off and on once a day. for just acouple seconds is fine. Or use Auto on/off in Options>Auto On/Off. I set mine to turn off at 4 Am and on at 4:45 am but that is just me.


    P.S. An effective battery pull is taking the battery out while the phone is on.

    Hey this did the trik. Thanks. But after I pulled my BB said "application error; reset" So was worried something had goen wrong and it tool a while to come back... Finally.. it is back and zoom also is working.. Any idea why was it not working? 'cause I do not remember doing anything for zoom, though..

    I guess it is not a good idea to pull battery off when it is on, right??

    i really wish my camera's zoom would stop working. it is useless, imho. i have my pearl set up at highest res, superfine... but if i shoot a pic at 3x or 5x, the final image is merely a cropped area from the larger image, meaning the overall dimensions of the photo become tiny... imho, it's pointless to use the zoom on a pearl.

    Usually pulls are done with the device powered on. Though I can't think of a specific reason why one way is more productive than the other.

    Just make sure it is not in the middle of doing accessing your media card, as in copying a large file to the card or other major actions like that. There is a minor chance of data corruption in that scenario.

    I was having the same problem with the zoom on my phone I took your suggestion of turning it off and taking out the battery and it worked, THANKS!

    I was having this problem also and it resolved itself without me having to do anything. But now that I think about it, it probably fixed itself by turning it off when I got on a plane.

    I did this as well and it really worked. THANKS. Thought the phone was broke, seems like turning it off and back on does not do the trick.
