Re: Camera not working

Here's a thread about that same issue.  Many are indicating it may be hardware related, HOWEVER some have had success with a simple reset.  Have you tried rebooting the device?

TWO ERRORS WITH THE PLAYBOOK

[ Edited ]

First,the error 4003with a picture or video has been gone suddenly but still can't take photos or videos,when i enter the camera app the screen changes to big black,white and grey stripes with nothing else ,the same in video mode but the sound is recorded but no video,just stripes.Second,the blackberry world,messages and contacts are gone and everything else i try to put on the small bar on the homescreen,when they were gone the playbook placed a note saying invalid array index and these things where gone...i need a quick reply telling methe ways to get the apps back and fix the camera...

Re: TWO ERRORS WITH THE PLAYBOOK

1. Error 4003 is hardware. Needs repair shop but not financially viable.

2. Icon loss, follow Workaround advice at  http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/KB33078

Re: playbook erased

First I would like you to do a 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 I need you to 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.
