    I had the same message on my phone. I did several battery reboots. And even got on with tech support. I did a back up and then wiped the system making sure to remove all extra aps like facebook, slacker, pandora, etc.

    It still did not work and they told me to take it in.

    I came and was searching on here and did one more BAttery removal and low and behold IT WORKS! HAPPY DAY!

    so, that is what worked for me.

    WOW... Thank You so much this fix worked perfectly... I thought my camera was done for because i left my phone in the rain in the street for a few hours (a little to much crazyness/beer one night) and my camera hadn't worked ever since.. I thought my camera was done for sure untill i tried this now it works on my Blackberry 8520

    omg......I cannot believe this......I had posted a thread about 2 -3 months ago on Crackberry about this very same error......and I recently upgraded my Curve to the 5.0 (big thanks to Nathanix Hybrids, they rock).......and the first thing I did was test the camera, same message......and today after finally getting my Curve back up to speed the way I wanted, I did another choice and look what we have here. I went through the steps that was mention in earlier threads and my camera & video camera are working again.......I am one happy camper.....

    I heard the pop but it was my Lens breaking now I have a broken lens and no camera still

    Yes, same exact thing for me. I thought this might happen and pushed on the side. well, my pen slipped and cracked the lense. I'm so pissed off! i'm 15 yo, can't get a job in Austin for a year and it's just going to be miserable without a camera until I can pay for repairs. This is very inconvenient.

    Yes that is the solution. Just push around camera lens, because camera can become loose from too much banging around. I tried software upgrades, downgrades, wipes, & battery pulls and nothing worked. Even pushing around camera lens didnt work for me. What i did to fix the problem was tighten the four screws in the back (you'll need special screwdriver-inexpensive at tool shop), they were all really loose. Only one is visible when you take battery cover off. Just youtube 'how to disassemble blackberry storm' for instructions.

    Guys . please leave the camera alone , you will break it ..i had that same problem.." cannot open camera , try closing applications " do the following and trust me it works as well as being a good opperating tip. enjoy and thaks to the guy who posted this in the first place..

    __________________________________________________ __________

    Most people close the applications by pressing the escape or red key. This does not close the applications.

    Each application has a CLOSE option. For instance if you are in the calendar hit the menu key (spotted key) and scroll down to the bottom CLOSE is listed. Go through each application and press close. Go into the browser press menu and options select cache operations clear all categories and hit escape it will say cleaning memory.

    Go to options - security - memory cleaning - enable it. The BB will now clean memory when idle for 5 minutes.

    you will have an icon on you screen for memory cleaning make sure you press it. Make sure you use the CLOSE button each time you are done with an application.

    If you follow these steps and keep up with your memory your phone will operate smoothly.

    This might be the dumbest question ever but which one is your camera lens... the top circle or the bottom circle?

    Okay so I had thee same damn problem and I was suppa mad.but I went to looking for solutions and its true.

    Ur lense just moved.so do these exact steps and if it don't work just keep trying.

    1)Remove back cover2)Press gently, but firmly on lense (you should hear a click)3)Battery Pull

    Apparently if dropped at all, the camera can shift!
    Fact:I know this sounds dumb but this actually worked for me on the first try.

    Reply and tell me if it works for u.kay
    honestly, everyone follow this, it works well! it actually does! ive been racking my brains for ages, and found this, thank you so much!xx

    You guys...
    I tried the press lens - battery pull method twice. Its not working for me. I'm not sure how hard am I suppose to press and whats the expected 'pop' sound. I'm scared if I press too hard the lens will shatter. What the **** do I do?.....
