    I updated to 2.2 OTA a few days ago and since then my camera doesn't work. When launched all I get is a black screen that sits there indefinitely. If I kill all running processes and try again the screen goes black and immediately returns to the home screen.
    I did notice that a few days ago it suddenly started working again out of nowhere, but the following morning it was dead again.
    I've tried a full factory reset but no joy.

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    Culprit for me was: LED Light Widget 1.0.9

    Uninstalled this and camera working normally even after reboot.

    I've heard about that app causing a similar problem, but I've never had it installed. Also, I've done a factory reset and it's still dead so it isn't an app that's causing the problem.
