Camera Focus Problem

    I was wondering if anyone else was having a problem with their Charge's camera having problems focusing? I do have it set on autofocus and it is not even trying. Changed the settings over and over and still the same result, just a blury picture. When I click on the square it turns green but does not focus. I did clean the len and it did not make a difference. I am on the stock rom.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    I've been battling the auto focus problem for weeks now and just now after reading this thread I opened up my third party camera app to see if I could get the focus to work. At first I experienced the same focus problem but then after becoming frustrated I half tapped the camera button a dozen times really fast and Low and Behold everything came into focus and now it works like it should on the first half tap. Hopefully this info will help someone else with this problem because I've been pulling my hair out over this.

    Post seven confirms:
    funny, i just tapped the shutter button half way like 20 times and now it's working as well...

    I appreciate the suggestion, I did that over and over without any success. Maybe I will just have to go to the Verizon store once I get back from Vacation.

    Shame it does not work for you. This morning I had to take pictures of my computer screen because Java is not working and the tech in Korea wanted more info and a log. I had to use the Charge to take the pics because I could not get the Snipping Tool on the computer to take some specific pics. Well I put the phone camera in macro mode and got the shot lined up and tapped the screen and the camera focused perfectly.

    Here is one of the pictures I took. Not sure how well it will look on here cause I had to re-size it for this site.

    Finally made it to the Verizon store today. They said it was an equipment issue. I am lucky and have the extended equipment warranty so I am able to get a replacement phone overnighted. Thank you for your help!
