    I used to have that problem using Ginger Bread 2.3.6...
    You can temporarily fix that If you reboot the phone.
    ...But if you really want that fixed for good, you need to perform a factory reset.

    Hi,
    Try insert your phone inside a plastic bag and cover the phone with dry uncooked rice for 24h.
    (Let the rice suck all the moisture from the phone).
    Hopefully that might fix the problem...

    Hi kokolo007,
    Welcome to the forum.
    Can you be a bit more specific to what problem you are having with the camera app ?

    Well, when I open camera app it says "warning:camera failed"
    I've tried every possible solution but nothing...could this be a hardware problem?

    Try:
    Open "Settings> Application Manager> All."
    Scroll the apps to the camera app and press "camera> Clear cache> clear data".
    And hopefully that should be enough to fix it.

    If not?
    Than I sugest to you to back up your phone with Kies and perform a factory reset on your phone.

    :eek: Strange !

    Not even after the factory reset???

    You have 2 choices at this point...

    Option 1- If your phone is still under guarantee? Take it back to the shop or contact Samsung about it for a repair.

    Option 2- Flash your current firmware with Odin, and that should fix it.
