DevAlpha A Camera dead?

Hi,

 

I developed an app and wanted to test it on the devalpha A. The camera worked when I got the device. I made a factory reset to exclude any errors in the software.

 

Problem:

When I open the native camera app I get the UI and a black screen. Changing the camera leads to a grey screen without UI. Closing and reopening the app leads to a message that the camera is in use. Waiting a while and reopen it then again leads to a message that the camera can not be started.

 

How can I trade in the defective devalpha against a working?

 

Thanks

My camera has stopped working as well - I think actually *since* the latest update.

Sorry, when I said "since the latest update" I hadn't seen yesterday's brand-new update yet - so hopefully this one fixes the camera again ...

Re: DevAlpha A Camera dead?

the actual camera on the dev alpha device works fine for me. I can still invocate it as well. I dont have an app that embeds the camerea in an AIR app. Sorry.

Re: DevAlpha A Camera dead?

I'm not really concerned about the AIR thing but about the native inbuilt camera app that doesn't show an image .... that's what makes me believe the cam is dead.

Re: DevAlpha A Camera dead?

Nope, 10.9.9.339 didn't fix it. Camera is still just showing black (all the controls are there, but no picture). When I switch to front-facing camera, the whole app hangs (when closed down, the app icon goes transparent and I can't even open it anymore. And I can't take any screenshots until I reboot the device.

 

Ah well, looking forward to swapping it for a limited edition device :smileyhappy:
