Whenever I try to use my camera it just shows black and then it crashes. Apps that use the camera don't work either, including flashlight apps that use the flash. Does anyone know what's wrong or how to fix it?
I had downloaded a upc scanner app. red laser our something I think it was called, and at some point my camera started doing the same thing coming on with black screen for a few second then crashing resetting the phone only helped for a day I deleted that app and one other don't remember what that one was, reset my phone and haven't had a problem since. Might be worth a shot.
If I were to do a reset how would I backup/restore everything?
If you were already rooted I'd recommend using Titanium Backup... but if you are not, then you can Backup Assistant will only back up some information... other than that you will have to download most everything from the Market again... and hopefully you have all your contacts, & calendar on Gmail which will restore automatically when you log into your Gmail account.
My camera didn't work before and I did a factory reset. And it fixed it. Now every thing was going great and now my camcorder doesn't wanna work. Camera is OK. But not camcorder. I don't wanna do another factory reset.
I have the same phone doing the same thing, i had update probably not the problem not sure anyway i removed all apps didnt change anything just a waste of time, hooked to my computer copied all did factory reset at verizon still no camera so they said same as i figured "stuck shutter" so they sending me a new one and i can keep this one. So yes dont waste your time.
the camera in my droid razr stopped working about a week ago, reverting to the home screen every time i tried to use it. i tried every suggestion short of factory reset. i decided i would go to the vzw store today. BUT. last night i forgot to plug in the charger before bed. when i woke up, the phone was dead dead dead, so i charged it up and turned it on. about an hour later i noticed the phone was unusually cool to the touch but it was on and fully charged. on a hunch, i tried the camera. BiNGo! i can't explain it, but it works now. maybe worth a try to let the juice run out completely and restart? btw, it's still very cool to the touch. stange.
When I try to enter my camera app it ether freezes or crashes an goes back to my home screen...... Only dose it with the back camera not the front one.... Also if the flash is on I take a pic and my flash stays on and I have to force quit my whole phone......ughhhhh somebody please help meeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I had the same problem, I did restarts, cleared camera cache, fabric restore, nothing worked.. then I rememebered that the camara was using Micro SD to save pictures, so I turned my phone off, removed Micro SD card, turned my phone back on and problem solved. Then I inserted Micro SD card again and its working perfectly since then.
Hope it works for you.
