The front camera went out, I switched to the rear camera took one pic and then it went black as did the front one.
I still have the camera moce tool bar choices, zoom, movie/camera etc. just no picture on screen.
Other that replacing the camera any thoughts or suggestions anyone may have on how to re-activate if at all possible ?

you can try to reload your OS but it only fixed the camera issue about 1% of the time
Not sure if you can even replace the camera to fix it. I have not heard of anyone doing that.
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.
