Any other details that would help us out with your issue:

Good description of what is really wrong and how to reproduce if possible. Details of what you did before:

 

What is worth a thousand words

I simply open the camera and a pop up saying "Could not start the camera. Close other applications and try opening the camera again" appears and only lets me press okay. 

 

Memory seems to be okay, can't figure out what it may be.

 

Please, how can I fix this? Any help is appriciated.

In this case jest try to format your device n c. If it still cant work its better for you to send your device for warranty.

You jest need to plug your phone to your computer and then backup all your data before doing a format then when you restore the data jest dont restore all your options and setting.

 

This backup wont include your application

Alrighty I suppose there isn't really any other way. I'll do it this week and give feedback to whether is has worked or not.

 I had the same problem with my Bold and tried everything until out of frustration i just clicked the center picture taking button before the "Could not start the camera. Close other applications and try opening the camera again" message came up and believe it or not that solved the problem. Works fine now!
