Default Camera Won't Work

My phones camera had worked the other day. I'd messed with the settings and turned it to have a negative effect. Nothing wrong there.

So, I went to go use the camera last night -both the camcorder and the normal camera- and... All I got was a black screen. I couldn't bring up a menu or anything. It was just black. The only way to do anything was to close it out by going back to the home screen. Any ideas?

Try..

Menu > Setting > Applications > Manage Applications > Camera

Press 'Clear Data' and 'Clear Cashe' is availiable

See if that helps any.

Okay, I did that, but now it's giving me the error,

The application process (process com.android.camera) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again.

Then it force closes

Go ahead and reboot your eris. This should allow the camera to reload itself from its normal process.

Turn the phone off and back on. Or as the geeks say, cycle power.

Hey guys! I've got the same problem here, reboot doesn't work. Error message is that the app (Camera) is not responding.

Any ideas please? Is't deffinitely a software issue.

If all else fails and the Camera still is not working, you may want to try a Factory Reset; if you don't mind starting from scratch.

Or, if you are Brave, Root the device.
