Re: Camera not working in Z10

Try removing the media card and then try the camera again. If it still doesn't work contact your carrier for warranty replacement.

Re: Camera not working in Z10

Dear friend

If you really want to solve the problem...simply do this 3 steps

1. Remove back cover
2. Gently yet firmly press on the lens
3. Pull of battery and push it back.
4. Gently tap your phone in palms for 3 4 times

I had same issue...and I met BlackBerry service guy he showed me that same techniques and it worked.... I shocked and couldn't believe in such way...but he described me due to repeated knock down or fall camera of BlackBerry easily shifts from its position. It will work. Give a try
