Re: Camera error 4003

You can try reloading the OS and see if the problem persists.  If it does then this is most likely a hardware problem and you'll need to contact www.blackberry.com/playbook for support information.


 

First Back Up of your PlayBook using your computer and BlackBerry Desktop Software.

This can be downloaded for free from http://us.blackberry.com/apps-software/desktop/

After the Back Up is complete unplug your PlayBook and then push and hold down the Power Button until the unit Force Powers Off.

Now, while Desktop Software is still open on your computer and the PlayBook Powered Off, Connect the PlayBook to your computer.

You should see and error screen from Desktop Software pop up that has the options to Retry, Update, or Cancel.

QUICKLY choose the Update option.

This will erase all the information off of your PlayBook and Re-Write the Software back onto it. Once it's complete your PlayBook will need to go back through the setup wizard, and you can then perform a restore using Desktop Software to return your information. The only thing that won't come back after the restore are the apps that you downloaded from App World but they can be easily Re-Installed using the My World feature in App World.

 

If the camera problem persists then contact Blackberry for support as there isn't anything else you can do.

Re: Camera error 4003

If you contact RIM I would bet they go thru the same process. Just saves phone time if you try it first.

Re: Camera error 4003

Dont wipe.

Generate logs if still possible via the help app menu / support.

 

If the error occurs for camera and/or video chat it will highly be that its hardware.

 

They are tracking this issue closely.

 

Cant validate for sure as downgrade does not seem to be possible and cant say until next uodate is out.
