    Some of the pictures I take turn out black, but not all of them. I connected my phone to my computer, and the ones that turned out black were still that way. I'm not sure why it's doing this. Also, pics I take might be fine for a while, but then become black later. Does anyone know what the problem is? I want to fix this if possible I can't seem to find much help online.

    What do you mean "Also, pics I take might be fine for a while, but then become black later."

    Just the stock apps the phone camp with. "Photo", "gallery" and "camera." I don't have very many apps besides the ones it came with, and those are things like Tetris, and a guitar tuner. Everything else about my phone works, but for some reason my pictures and camera are being wonky.

    I've had this happen.

    I recently downloaded a few pics from the internet to use a Facer watch faces. They show as thumbnails in my download gallery folder but are gray when I open them. They show as ?'s in ES file explorer too, they don't open.

    To the question about at first my pics are OK, and then black, I will take a picture and it will show up for a day or two. Than, it will show up as black a few days later.

    That sounds like some sort of storage corruption. If you copy a good picture to your PC, and it "goes black" on your phone, but is still ok on the PC, I would have to guess that the phone has bad mojo (or more precisely, bad storage) and needs a warranty return.
