    Hi all

    I had my Samsung galaxy ace mobile working fine for about 2 months, just yesterday it happened that the camera screen won't sense any touch at all, hence not responding to anything so I cannot take any picture.., even not responding to the "back" arrow or anything at all...I have to press the middle button to return to the home page..however the touch screen is working fine in all other applications- just when I run the camera app the touch screen will act dead..

    any help ?

    do you nave an sd card installed? and sometimes if you have a low battery the phone wont let you use the camera, this shouldnt be the reason thou as it wouldnt show the cam screen.

    you have rebooted and tried again right?

    yes I have sd card installed, and the battery is full...and ofc I have rebooted multiple times :D...but again it seems a software/hardware bug ! because the touch screen won't respond at all....

    do u see any "lock" icon on your screen ?
    if (true){
    press power button to lock/unlock camera
    keep googling

    I registered just to say thanks. This has happened to my wife's galaxy ace a few times and had always managed to unlock it somehow. I was ready to bin it with frustration. :p

    also what if I have modded cyanogen mid 9 which up graded me to android 4.0.4 the camera app is built in and can't be removed to top it all off doesn't which is why I need a new phone app and seem to come across same problem, a black screen which causes the camera not to function and or crash with no access or function to camera preview art all
