    Screenlock and Video Camera

    Hi, I'm having a problem with my BB 8900 when I try to use the video camera.

    What happens is that the screen locks after a minute (I think) and I dont know how to diable this or change the screenlock settings. Actually there seems to be none. When the screen locks, the video camera automatically stops recording, and sometimes is left in a format that is unreadable (I assume corrupted).

    I have a media card and therefore can take a few minutes of video but the screenlock defeats this purpose.

    Any advice here? Thanks.

    I dont think you are talking about screen locking else maybe there is auto-locking software installed. Try searching for it in the application list and remove it. This can be done by: Options > Advanced Options > Applications > Highlight the Application > Menu Key > Delete
    Please keep in mind from then on you have to lock your phone manually.

    Btw what version of the OS is installed on your device? Check with: Options > About

    It may be your device is too full of apps and is low on memory which is why the video camera locks up and stops working. Make sure that you close out apps after using them by clicking on your menu bb button and selecting 'close' from the list.

    Its always better to make your memory space free i.e, make clear of excessive video files. Huge excessive video files make the functionalities of mobile device slow.

    It's also good practice to keep the stuff you don't use all the time, music, video, ect on your computer to where you can download when you need it.
