My daughter got my Vibrant when I got the Sensation so I'm not exactly sure what kinda stuff she's been doing to it BUT she's getting a "Warning: Camera Failed" message when she tries to use the camera. Any ideas as to what the problem could be? She says it just started and the only thing she's downloaded recenty was an Angry Birds update. Hoping for suggestions before trying a Master Reset.
Thanks in advance!
I had an issue like this when I pulled my SD card out that I was using for pictures and replaced it with another one. Did you pull your SD card and put it in your phone and giver her another one? If that is the case, put yours back in and open the camera app and point the app to use the internal SD card instead and then swap the cards back out.
actually i had this issue a week ago and its simple but makes no sense. Go to google maps and clear cache, find where you are on map and let the tiles catch up. if you have latitude quit, then restart latitude. everything you can do while in maps do it. when you have done all that, go to upgrade firmware in camera settings and upgrade firmware (wasnt included in upgrade for phone) it will tell you there is a cost but there isnt. first check version, then upgrade it. everytime it says theres a cost, there isnt! after doing all that, turn phone off then on. the issue is that the camera is tied into the gps and messing with google maps will fix that. simple right?
Wow! That deserves 10,000 points just for thinking that far outside the box!
yea, too bad it took me 3 weeks to remember the gps tie-in to the camera. Countless master resets and more aggrivation than I can mention. solution....5 mins
Live and learn....
Hey guys, thanks for all the suggestions! Darknight, your suggestion fixed it. My second thought was that it had something to do with the GPS (first being that it was outta space) but I would never have figured all that out. I woulda told her to go download FX Camera or something. Haha.
Thanks again for the help and to all for the suggestions!
i can't belive this actually works! Thanks.
this would not work for me ... after i went through the google maps stuff... it would not let me go to camera setting cause camera failed came up again.
This isnt working for me How do I upgarde the camera firmware? The camera applications keeps closing out so I cant go to settings.
same problem i am having
Does anyone have any other way to fix camera
See if you can go into settings>apps and clear the camera apps data and cache.
