    Brand new Spica. When starting Camera :

    Screen dims for a few seconds then goes black. After a few more seconds I get the following message :

    Activity Camera (in application Camera) is not responding

    Then I need to ForceClose

    Sounds like your camera app is corrupt , As it's a default app it's not one you can simply Un-install then reinstall. I would recommend a Factory data reset :)

    Yeah bizarre? What firmware are you running? As Carl C recommends, a factory reset would be the first option!

    Standard Samsung firmware; Android 1.5

    I did two factory resets but even right after these, the camera wouldn't work.

    I returned it and got myself a Hero :)

    I am getting the same error message on Nexus One.

    Did you ever find out what was wrong with it or did you just get the handset replaced no questions asked?

    I'm having the same problem with my nexus one, seems there is no solution so far but a replacement?

    too bad i dont have a warranty... :(
