    Hello cgtbot87,

    You will want to take a look at the KB article from RIM:

    KB15544-"Could not launch camera application" error appears when opening the camera on the BlackBerry smartphone

    Unfortunately, if any of the resolutions listed in the article do not fix your issue, you are looking at a hardware issue and it may be time for a new device.

    Not an "official" solution, but when I saw the thread title I thought "this is gonna be a Storm owner" because a buddy of mine had the same issue. The way he fixed it was by the pressing on the camera till he heard a small click when he put it back in place. Apparently this issue can happen because the phone was dropped and the camera physically got moved a little and it happened more frequently on Storm devices. Hope it helps

    Glad to see you got it going. I never had this issue with my Storm device and I dropped that thing enough times to crack the screen in 3 places. Still worked like a champ though.
