Default Camera not starting

Please Login to Remove!

I tried using the camera on my 8300 after not using it for a couple of weeks, and keep getting the following message when activating: "Could not start the camera. Close other applications and try opening the camera again"

I don't have any other applications open, and have never recieved this message before. I tried shutting down and removing the battery, but cannot get to the camera. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Try pulling the battery without powering down.

I just tried pulling the battery without powering down, and am still getting the same message. I guess I'll try escalating to Tech Support via the Blackberry official website (if there is that option).

I'll post the solution if I figure out how to correct this problem, or if anyone else knows how, please let us know!

Thanks again!

Had the same problem a few months back and did some updates and installations, have not had the same problem since. Do a OS update, it should fix the problem.
