Camera on BB 9900 Stopped Working

My camera has suddenly stopped working. I have plenty of memory and have tried a battery reset and made sure there is plenty of power.

Any other ideas?

What exactly happens when you try to use the camera?

Re: Camera on BB 9900 Stopped Working

This is usually attributed to a defective camera module. Some have been successful in pushing down on the area around the camera lens to try and seat the camera module. If that doesn't help then you will likely need to contact your carrier for a warranty replacement.

What worked? Pressing on the camera area or contacting your carrier?
