Camera launches with Black and White Horizontal lines

Team,

 

i've noticed recently since updating to OS 1.0.6, my camera/video fails to load without the presense of " Black and White' Horizontal lines across the screen.

 

The device is not physically damaged and intermittently the camera/video launches after hard reset..

 

PLEASE ADVISE.

Re: Camera launches with Black and White Horizontal lines

Thanks for your prompt response ,

 

The sentence wasn't phrased gramatically correct, whenever i attempt to launch the camera the interface loads with " Black and White horizontal " lines in the background of the camera interface instead of the expected image being captured via the camera .

 

So in otherwords i'm seeing the camera button, zoom bar etc, however these funcions are layered over " Black and White lines" instead of an active image.

 

The os version is 1.0.6.2390

Re: Camera launches with Black and White Horizontal lines

Dies this happen on both cameras. or just one of them. If it is one of them it would suggest a hardware problem and suggest that you return for an exchange asap.

Have you done a hard reset the Power button and the -+ button held for 15 seconds, if it is not hard ware related you may need to a security wipe and re install the OS. after backing up your critical data.
