    Whenever I try to launch the camera app, the screen goes black (turns off) then I have to reboot the phone. Anybody have any idea on what's going on and why this might be happening?

    EDIT: It works fine when Im plugged into the charger, could I need a new battery?

    Thanks

    If you don't use the camera, does your phone still shut off unexpectedly? Can you try a new battery and see what happens? If it means buying a new battery, it's always a good idea to have a spare lying around anyway.

    You could also try clearing the system cache partition: [Guide] Rebooting into Recovery Mode for the Galaxy S2, S3, and Tab2.

    It's quite likely - the firmware is setup to not use the camera when the battery gets low (5% IIRC). Your phone may be misinterpreting the battery level and refusing to activate the camera.

    Sometimes it does turn off randomly, not all the time though. Kind of an unpredictable thing.

    Im gonna say that's not why, because the battery is at 70%+ and it still does it.
