just cause someone views the problem doesnt mean they know the solution.
im actually being worst than them because im wasting your time by telling you that i have never heard of this problem before.
How small is the UK, is someone able to give you the name of a place and you will be able to get to it no problem?
reading the topic, it sounds like a camera + flash issue when used together.
reading the post seems like you have a hardware camera problem, and a hardware flash problem.
i may be wrong, but those two parts (if seperate) may need to be replaced.
if your comfortable with opening tiny/modern electronics, then you shuold be able to buy the parts online and replace them yourself.
if your not comfortable, any cell phone/electronics repair shop in your area should be able to give you advice.
not sure how much i actually helped with this post
ALSO:, is this problem only existant on OS6 for you? if you were to go back to os5, would the camera work again?
I know while using BB BOSS, there are the options to remove: Camera (Still), Video Camera..but it is in a section called:
"Advanced (May cause problems on some devices)"
not sure if you installed a shrunken OS? or if u ever done anything like that before.
