    Smile My camera will not zoom??

    Advertisement



    I have had my blackberry Pearl for about 3 weeks now, and have been problem free. I have a 1 GB micro SD card, and have been using the camera quite often. Until today that is...
    My Zoom function no longer works? I can't zoom in or out??? The memory card is empty, no new software has been installed, nothing has really changed????
    Could this be the beginning of my trackball going???

    HELP

    just pull out the battery a re-install after a minute and you should be all set.

    Hello. I have been LOVING this Blackberry for the past month and all of a sudden my carera would not zoom. I found this site, searched for this topic, found this question, took out the battery and now it zooms again. Thank you, Thank you!

    I swear the battery pull solves about 90% of the problems. Glad you got it working!

    i wish my camera wouldn't zoom... whenever i shoot a photo at 3x or 5x, it never retains the image resolution it should have.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~i had that problem and in reading on the BB site about the pearl it mentioned holding down or pressing the #3 key. I did it and the zoom worked again.

    I prefer the SoftRest Application to a physical pull of the battery

    Smile Re: My camera will not zoom??

    I'm so glad i decided to google "Blackberry Camera Will Not Zoom" 'cause I called my Provider adn their solution was to have me send in my unit for repair, while using a loaner unit until mine was returned... all for $75. Now, since the scroll was working for everything else, and since the camera is software (not a mechanical zoom) I knew that it had to be something simple.

    the battery fix worked.

    Definitely not a $75 repair.

    Re: My camera will not zoom??

    Had exact same problem with my 8320. The camera was absolutely fine for a month or so then the zoom stopped working.

    Knew it wasn't the trackball, as it worked just fine with every other application.

    Popped out the battery for a wee bit - replaced it again, and im zooming away once more.

    Cheers for the tip!
