Exclamation Could not start the camera.

Please Login to Remove!

'Could not start the camera. Close other applications and try opening the camera again'
I've done battery pulls, I've upgraded to the newest system. I've pretty much done everything, I'm starting to think it needs more than just an upgrade or a reboot.

How do I fix it or will I need to go to a shop?

You might need to reload your software on the handheld: KB15544-"Could not launch camera application" error appears when opening the camera on the BlackBerry smartphone

Stubborn camera problems often require reloading the operating system on your BlackBerry.

Cool Re: Could not start the camera.

Ok same here. somebody told me to put a small piece of something in between the battery and the cover at the top right corner near the camera lens. Yea it sounds like crap but it worked for about 3 hours and then nothing. Ive done everything the thread has mentioned. 100 battery pulls and 4 hail marys and not a damn thing. Ive searched the google for answers but not a single valid response worked. Looks like im giving up on the stupid blackberry and moving over to the new 4S or even wait for the iphone 5. Screw MS BS and say hello to Apple MAC products. Im even throwing out my sucky PC that seems to have the same issues as this stupid BB these are the final steps until healing.

Well, do you get a certain jvm error message when this happens? I'm just curious. I've been researching how to deal with these kinds of errors to be able to better help others. I wonder if you need to re-installed your operating system or something.

Did you read the thread? You likely will need to try an OS reinstall, and hope that fixes it.
