    MetroPCS LG Motion 4G 4.0.4 Gallery Issue - YouTube

    My SD Card is already in.
    I open Gallery and all I see are black boxes.
    Those black boxes are supposed to be my pictures.
    They don't show unless I touch the screen.
    Its not supposed to be like that.
    When I just click a random folder to see the pictures inside,
    Its the same thing.
    Then if I click the picture inside to see the picture itself,
    the picture comes up blank. It doesn't show at all.

    You could try Quick Pic or Perfect Viewer from the play store. Both free. It's what I use and they work fine for me.

    Good luck.

    Huh, strange problem. Go to settings, apps, touch the 'ALL' tab, and look for gallery, and force close it and clear the data and cache.

    If that doesn't work, factory reset, you will lose anything not on the sd card

    I had tried that already.
    and I noticed your post on the other thread as well.

    This was my response over there.
    "I had tried to clear the data and/or cache for the gallery.apk. Menu >settings >applications >manage applications, then select the "All" tab on top. Scroll down to Gallery, press it and select clear data, and, clear cache also.

    I'd found that response here..

    This is the most ridiculous solution to a problem ever... I'm ashamed to admit that after going through this thread I realize my phone has just taken millions of photos of the inside of my pocket.

    That was exactly the problem lol, I had to laugh at myself, after checking the details of when and what time I took the photos they all either had the same exact time or a minute later I looked at the location and realized alk the photos had been taken at work in my pocket, and it happened because i didnt have my lockscreen on my phone and on top of that my phone can take pics even with a lock screen. Now i can delete these black photos that were never photos to begin with.

    Same problem we had. First panic that we'd lost all photos, then relief after scrolling down, seeing good pics, and realizing we'd just taken a bunch of pocket pics. (Thank God I read to the end of this thread before I tried some of the more drastic solutions.) Thanks, Androider12390 and Someoneushouldknow!
