Camera opens but loads black screen.....HELP!
I'm in a serious crisis...
Whenever I click the camera icon, it loads a black screen. I can only exit by pressing the home button. Same thing for the camcorder. I took out the battery for about 5 minutes and it still loaded a black screen.
How the heck do I fix this?
Thanks for any input.

Couple of questions :
1. how recent did you get your Evo?
2. Are you rooted?
3. Are you using a SBC (trickle charging) kernel? If yes, try getting the newest version.
My friend had the same issue. Turns out that newer Evos have a different camera driver and older SBC kernels do no support it. Just flash the newest kernel and your camera should work just fine.

I started having this problem with my evo about 3 days ago. Also, my flash for my internet apps hasn't been working for maybe a month. Resetting my phone didn't help. I just decided to try downgrading my flash player app in the market from 10.3 to 10.1 by going to the market, searching for"flash player", and selecting it. Then you click "uninstall updates" at the top. Make sure auto-update is off. This solved my camera and flash issues! Hope this helps! -Nick

could be a bad kernel,my evo doesnt like some kernels and the camera not working could be a side effect.
my evo runs good on the latest Ziggy kernel but hates his oct.release (camera doing what yours is doing)GOT ROM?

Re: Camera opens but loads black screen.....HELP!
Mine just did this tonight. I was using it and took a picture just fine but the next one I tried to take the camera screen turned black. I thought it was because it was dark outside but when I got into the light it didnt change any.
does a hard reset, factory rest, ect. wipe the phone completly clean cept for built in functions and apps? or will contacts be erased?
Oh and also have any of you guys had issues with the messaging sytem i keep having general issue notes popping up and sending pictures/ dowloads dont work so well. Also what exactly is the kernal you are talking bout?
Any help is appreciated Thanks
