    Whenever I try to start up my camera I get this error: "Could not start the camera. Close other applications and try opening the camera again.". The thing is though that I haven't downloaded any new programs and I have done a battery pull. Any ideas? Thanks!

    doesn't this happen when you run out of memory (app, onboard, SD Card)?

    How much mem do you have free?

    Check:

    Options > memory > application memory free space. Minimum 12mb/ideal 30+.

    + camera > menu > options > store pics > select media card.

    I guess the next thing I would try is reloading the OS. Something may be corrupted

    Ok so I just downloaded the official .148 and the camera is still saying that I need to close other applications and try opening the camera again. What should I do?

    I am a novice! I know next to nothing. But, I recall reading something about applications running in the background. There is a way to check and close those apps. Someone here should be able to help or try using the search option to locate the discussion regarding checking on what apps are running.

    hold down the bbmenu > appswitcher shows > click on running apps (other then the permanent onces, such as browser, bbm, phone, home, and messages) > when in app > bbmenu > close

    Yeah. Definitely am having the some issue. ] =

    Edit: Running .148. Only apps running in the background are Phone, Browser, Home Screen, Messages, and BBM. 36.8 MB of App Memory, 874.8 MB of free device memory, and 2.2 GB of free Media Card space. And I was so looking forward to the "new and improved" camera.

    Same issue here too...

    Just installed .148 last night and just noticed the same camera issue listed in this post. I have 2 phones (mine and wifes) and I have left her OS original, whereas I have risked the upgrades for comparison and warranty issues.

    This same camera issue was on her phone, and after several searches and research for a fix....came up with nothing. I took it to Verizon for possible fix and they had no clue and simply exchanged the phone.

    It seems to be a "regular" problem -- (Simply based on my experience alone), and If there is a fix for this Im sure someone here on the forum holds the answer.

    Anyone?

    After some more thread searches, I just found some possible fixes...

    memory card pull and reset

    clearing cache and pushed content

    pushing on lens

    tried them all and still no luck!

    I have NO idea what I did ... but its working again. The only thing I did different than all the other things mentioned is the following....

    I reinstalled by back-up files from yesterday when I was running .142, and after a reset I had lost my browser icon -- so I had my service books resent. Internet came back and camera started working. It froze up a couple times at first use, but now seems to work as it did before.

    There you go! My first EXPERT advice on how to fix you camera. lol. I really have no idea how or what exactly happened, so keep plugging away or as I did..keep pushing buttons, reset, reload, backup, reinstall, lol you get the point.

    So if I have a warranty I can take it to verizon and they'll give me a new phone, assuming they don't know the problem, right? And if so do I need to take off any themes o downloaded?
