Default Curve 8300 camera zoom

Please Login to Remove!

Hello everyone in the BB community. I am new to this forum. I am writing from Germany, I am a self-employed businessman and own a BB Curve 8300. I have a question for everyone owning a Curve 8300. I am now on my 3rd phone since August 2007. After approx. 3-4 weeks the camera zoom functions stops working both on the track ball and on the side up-down keys. The camera works but not the zoom function. This has happened with every replacement phone. Now only 2 days ago the same problem has started with my 3rd replacement phone. Has anyone out there had this problem as well and if so how did you overcome it? I am pretty happy with my new BB phone despite the fact the product does not deliver 100%.

Many thanks for your help and assistance. Cubni56

Some people have pulled the battery (while the device was powered on) to get that functionality back. Not sure why it keeps happening to you.

A battery pull always fixes the camera zoom issue. I've yet to see an instance where it didn't.

I've had no such problem thus far... hopefully its not a problem with all versions of the phone.

Default camera zoom

Thank you for the fix. It just happened today, so I went on-line to find out if there was a patch for the problem.
Removing the battery worked.
