Just not working at all, everything else works fine. Anything I can do to fix this?
Good for you, now you won't waste time taking photo's with it.
Just got back from Vegas, I took photos with my 3G and my wife took photos with her Photon. Day, night, natural light, the Photon took better pictures by far.
The bright side is that you won't have to put up with that annoying "click" sound they added in the latest OTA update!
On a more serious note, once I believed my camera was totally fubared because all I could see was black. It ended up that I'd accidentally switched to the front camera, and was holding the phone with my finger over the front camera lens. In my case, I could see the various controls and things on the screen, I just had black coming through from the lens. Do you see the zoom bar on the left, and the various menu buttons on the screen?
Have you tried getting to the camera both through the apps menu, and by firmly pressing down the camera button when the phone is powered up?
Does the video camera app work? Since you say "camera", I assume that you are talking about the still camera.
Ok, quick question....what is your PRL?
When I did that stupid 4G update, everything worked fine but my camera didn't work. Just black screen like you say.
sent with my EVO3D with lazer beams
Yes, this is definitely a possibility. While it didn't have it happen to me during The Great PRL Fiasco of 2011 I saw reports from people to whom it did. Reverting back to the 21081 PRL and redoing the hands free activation resolved it.
I am also glad to know I'm not the only one who has done the accidental front camera thing before!
