    Hi,

    I have Infuse I997 with Gingerbread UCLB3.
    I think my camera got wet during a rain and stopped working.
    When I open camera (or flashlight) it opens up the application but the screen is black.
    It also does not want to close and eventually shows a message that application stopped working and needs to close.
    Any ideas if that can be repaired? And how/where?

    Thanks

    Have you tried any other 3rd party camera applications? Camera360, CameraZOOM FX, etc.? It sounds like maybe the program is messed up and not the camera itself.

    I just installed Camera360 and it also fails with msg: Activity Camera360 is not responding.
    Flashlight app is also not working.
    Is it hardware?

    Have you tried reflashing the ROM you're using? Backup any important info/apps, do a NAND backup, factory reset/wipe cache/wipe dalvik, then reflash your ROM. Try the camera then. If you don't want to reflash the ROM, you could just try doing a factory reset/cache wipe. That would help to be absolutely certain that the problem is the camera and not Android.

    If you are unfamiliar with flashing ROMs then the forums will be the place to start. Look for your specific device in the list. Be advised that flashing ROMs will generally void any warranty you have, so keep that in mind. Follow any and all instructions for ROM flashing exactly as written as you can damage your device and render it unusable. If you are uncomfortable with any of the info I've given, just do a factory reset through the settings menu, provided that you don't have a custom recovery. Further device specific information should be obtained directly though the forum for your specific device.

    Try a factory reset, if that doesn't work, it's most likely hardware and you'll need to get it replaced.
