    Question Is there any way to fix a blurry camera?

    Advertisement



    I bought my 8100 off E-bay and the camera has never taken clear pics. The pics are always so blurry you can't distinguish anything. Do I need to replace the hardware (if so where do I buy it) or does anyone know if I can delete the camera in the Applications option and if my Pearl will automatically reinstall it (like plug and play on a computer)? any help would be appreciated.

    I know this may seem elementary, but have you tried to clean it?

    If not, get one of the lens cloths that are made for cameras. There are also the sprays that you can spray onto the clothe before trying to clean. This may save you from having to spend $$ on the new camera.

    My guess is the lense inside of the camera became jarred loose due to dropping the phone. When I worked for cingular, they had a display pearl with a blurry camera, and I tried to clean it with no success. I would call your provider and see if you can try to get a replacement...just don't tell them you got it off ebay...

    or if you're the DIY type you might want to venture into opening it up and diagnose the problem directly... i think there's a complete guide on opening up a BB
