Default Camera and Vid Camera failed?

Please Login to Remove!

Well a while ago my camera started messing up. The screen would have a greenish, pixilated, tint to it and when taking a picture, it would just be white.

Thinking it was the update i had just done, i downgraded, same problem. Then i upgraded to the ATT release and now it says "Could not start the camera. Close other applications and try opening the camera again" and the video camera will just auto-close itself

What i have done to possibly fix it:

Restore to factory
clear BB with jl_cmder and reload latest os (started without any backup programs or data put on yet)

and still nothing..

Any ideas?
