    Hi guys please help me out

    I recently bought this Blackberry 8900(T-Mobile Make) second hand which was initially working fine. Lately, the camera keeps coming on flashing every now and then annoyingly even when i'm just going through my contacts or ready emails

    Will appreciate your help please!! cheers

    Is either of your convenience keys set to camera? If so, change it to another application & see whether the camera keeps coming up, or this other app.

    Go to options > screen/keyboard > scroll down to the right or left side convenience key opens and change it

    I managed to change the setting to "nothing" by going through Options-Screen/Keyboard.. then scrolled down to "Right side Convinience Key opens:" which as you rightly said, the default was set as camera. I hope that is what you advised me to do.. I will definitely give you feedback later. once again I'm very grateful for your help.. this is wonderful!!!! cheers bye for now

    Best of luck! If it stops the camera from cropping up, you know you have a sticky right convenience key.

    It's possible that the dome switch is stuck... if this were a 9000, replacing the midframe would be a simple solution, but the 8900 doesn't separate into large pieces quite so easily.

    I'd consider a warranty replacement, because the right convenience key is actually two buttons, and the camera is all but worthless without it, since the first click tells the camera to focus.
