What exactly happens when you try to run the stock camera app?

If you don't mind losing your data, you can try a factory reset.

(what carrier is it on?)

Well that would probably be the easiest. I will look into it a bit (and I have some family stuff to do), but I can report back later and see if I can round up any other options for you.

Happened to one of my phones. I think the fix was to go into the applications section of settings, find the camera and clear data on that.

There's also a system update today and the notes reference something with the camera was fixed

Do other camera apps work correctly? We can possibly try reinstalling the camera app. Other options are a factory reset (which might work) or running the ruu (which should work and basically reflashes the software on your phone).

They tried clearing the data and cache.

Not sure about the update, that might help if it was an issue that the update fixes.

I first tried the volume up and power button about month and a half ago when I had the camera problem and recently I had to factory reset my phone (not camera problem related). Even after the factory reset I had the camera flickering problem again, I think it's just a general HTC or specifically a HTC one s problem and sadly gonna have to live with it. Hopefully when the HTC one s gets jellybean which I think it has been confirmed, HTC will fix the camera problem...... And also HTC are definitely gonna fix the menu button annoyance which will probably be hold down the multi tasking button to access the menu button

I have same problem on my HTC one S. Every time I touch the camera icon to open it, phone go on reboot on itself. I download other camera app from market, but the phone just reboot when I try to launch to any camera. I had rooted my phone. I'm not sure, what stated my phone at. Can anyone help me ? I did factory reset many time, it wouldn't work. After I do factory reset, I still see all my info set up still there, I think the phone didn't factory reset, even I force it.

I had the same problem on my HTC One SV! But I have fixed it! You don't have to do a factory reset, all you do is to hold the power button and choose "Close all apps and RESTART the phone". I tried this after using all the other methods like clearing data and resetting my phone and this is the one that worked for me and I hope that it works for you too!

How long do you have to hold down the power button and the up colume button for? sorry my camera has also stopped working and when i try to open it sometimes it doesn't even appear and sometimes it flashes for a second and then goes. I am assuming it is because earlier I had installed a camera app and the problem happened after I had uninstalled it.
