    Just updated to Froyo, and my camera no longer works, neither in camera or video mode :mad:

    Tap the icon and the screen shows the white startup icon, then goes back to the home screen.

    I'm on 3 in the UK, and have an unbranded, un-locked handset, as sent to me by 3. The phone is not rooted.

    Anyone have any suggestions? I'm loath to do a reset of the phone.

    Weird. Having moved a few apps to SD, the camera is now working.

    Odd

    Have a fix that works for me. Killed all tasks one by one and tested camera to find culprit:

    LED Light Widget 1.0.9

    Uninstalled this and camera working normally even after reboot.

    This also happened with me (unbranded phone) I had installed Camera 360 pro and Zoom FX. Once uninstalled both of them it worked. I have put them back on and it still works fine including the 720p video.

    the photo is compressed too small to a couple of hundreds of KBs from the orginal 2M.
