    Just press Alt+Shift+del, which gives your BlackBerry Bold 9700 a soft reboot without physically removing the battery.

    Hey pat sorry to hear your still having issues. This issue may be caused by one of the following:

    There are too many open applications on the BlackBerry smartphone.
    There is a physical problem with the integrated camera.


    Cause 1

    There are too many open applications on the BlackBerry smartphone.

    Resolution 1a

    Close all applications on the BlackBerry smartphone. On the BlackBerry smartphone, display the menu and select Close.

    Resolution 1b

    Perform a hard reset on the BlackBerry smartphone. For instructions. Then attempt to open the camera application again.

    Resolution 1c

    Run the BlackBerry smartphone through the application loader tool.
    Warning: The following procedures will delete either all data, or all data and applications on the BlackBerry smartphone. Back up the data prior to performing the procedure.

    Cause 2
    There is a physical problem with the integrated camera.
    Resolution 2
    If all the above have been attempted and the camera application does not open, contact your service provider for further assistance.

    hope this info helps, if not then it sounds like its a hardware failure and the phone may need to be replaced.

    We all hope it works, thanks to Ishap, if you continue to experience the same issue again, either have someone else take a look at your device, or consider it a hardware issue after all other possible options have been exhausted.

    Try a battery pull, if it won't help try to reinstall the OS.

    Hello Don, you could always try and reinstall the OS on your device. That may be the next option.

    Click the button in the bottom right of a post to say thanks!

    Is the watermark sticker still white? If not then your device has suffered waterdamage.

    I had this issue with a 9800. The only option is to replace the camera and hope nothing else has damaged. Reinstalling the OS will not help.
