Camera

Hi my Blackberry pearl flip 8220 mobile phone has developed a problem with the camera when I try to open it I get this message " ! Could not start the camera. close other applications and try opening the camera again " Well you can guess it won't open so not able to take pictures. I have looked to see if any applications are open but as only had the phone for a short while I have no applicants.

Re: Camera

That error usually is caused by a hardware failure in the camera. I would keep a close eye on it and if you see it again I would return the device and exchange it for a new one.

Re: Camera

Hi many thanks for your reply I will keep that in mind. Now I have another problem my emails have stopped coming through and I have checked to see if my setting are correct and switched on so I will remove the battery again and see if that works
