    Hello again guys, When i try to use my camera i get a message displayed saying "Unfortunately, Gallery has stopped working".
    I can access my photos in my Gallery but it wont let me take any more pics. My phone is not short on memory so any ideas what i can do to get this function to work again?
    Any suggestions would be a help.

    Thanks.

    Paul

    Sounds like you installed a custom ROM like CyanogenMOD which has issues with the camera and related software. If so, you need to contact the authors about any issues.

    I had the same problem, but reading another forum I found that, go to settings/apps/all/gallery/clear data. This fixed problem of "gallery has stopped working", it did not remove pics & allowed camera to work again, hope that helps you.

    Hi
    In my Nexus S (Android Ver 4.1.1); recently my camera stopped working. As soon as I try to take the picture; it flashes and phone switches itself off. Any idea about how to get rid of this problem?
