Bold camera not working?

[ Edited ]

Hi all,

           So my camera has not been working a while now.  Comes up with the message 'could not start camera. Close other applications and try opening the camera again.' I have no other applications open so I have no idea what its talking about?  Ive tried the soft and hard reset with no luck.  Im guessing maybe its a software issue or something as I didnt drop the phone or anything.  If anyone can help with pointing me in the right direction would be great.
