Samsung Galaxy S II :: Camera Mode - Black Screen After ICS 404 Update
Oct 19, 2012
since i update my phone to ICS 4.0.4 i experience camera issues. When in camera or video mode the screen is black (cant see nothing). But it works. If i take shot it flicker for split of second and shows image taken for that spit of second then goes back to black screen.
before ICS update it was on gingerbread. I tried with KIES but phone developed a fault. It wasn't allowing me to pass "Samsung Galaxy SII" screen. I went to local shop and they sort it out. So i don't know how they did it. Two days later i find that camera is faulty.
I have bought Xperia z3 for 2 months. I have just noticed something that might be a problem with my camera.
In camera mode (both video and camera) sometime the screen shows soft black wave running from top to bottom (for more understanding about "black wave" just like when you focus the camera on TV screen). However I didn't focus my camera on TV screen anymore. The problem last for 1-5 minutes. When this problem occurred If I go on and take a photo sometime the wave could be captured into my photo as well but mostly these running black wave can not be captured into the photo.
(I have attached a photo taken when the running black wave problem occurred and this time it was captured in my photo.
approximately every 4 or 5 days my phone will just freeze, usually on a black screen.Initially I removed the battery to re-boot, however the last couple of times I managed to get it to reboot with a long power button push. This latest time it was frozen on the home screen but would not respond to anything other than re-boot
When I open camera on my s5 it shows black screen and camera does not work. today i have taken it seriously as i was trying to open my camera for a urgent purpose and it did not work. if i do not get it fixed I will throw it away (all android phones) for forever.
Just updated via Samsung Apps the camera firmware to a CDE11 or something version. Took 4 minutes to update and flash this firmware. I wonder what exactly it changed in the camera firmware? Hopefully improved things or bug fixes.I will test a few videos and see if the bitrate has changed or not.
This morning I left my phone in my bootbag. Came back and noticed there was a small crack not in the cover itself but the actual screen. Now the screen is black, doesn't seem like an liquid has spilt like when a screen breaks (But then what do I know?!).I got a friend to phone it, it still rings.. vibrates, the two lights either side of the button still light up.. does what it usually should. But the screen itself remains black. I plugged it into Kies via USB in the hope I could create a backup and order a new phone. But because it has a keylock on the home screen. I need to unlock that in order for Kies to connect.Is there any other way at all I can remove the sufficient data? E.g. Photo's, Videos.. as there's alot of sentimental things on there. I should really learn to start backing things up. But its always too late to say that.
Periodically I go to turn the display on via the power button and the screen is either completely black (powered off) or I only see a blue led light flash in the indicator area. My only way to power on the phone is to pull the battery, replace and power back on.
When I try to load the game "0.01 seconds pro", the screen turns black and I can hear only sound, and then after a few seconds the game crashes.. I tried updating, reinstalling, turning the device off and on.. but nothing works.
seems a bit lame compared to other questions! But, how do I set it so that when I recieve a text, it beeps every two minutes or so instead of just once? I can't find it anywhere! Also, when a text does come, the actual message quickly scrolls across the black bar at the top of the home screen..can I remove this? I would normally have the screen locked anyway but if i'd just used it and left it on the table for instance.
When I want to manually set the screen brightness (or change the "mode", called "sk�rmtilstand" in Danish), changes have no effect. The brightness bar is greyed out. Also, I have noticed that turning of "system battery saving" (the first of the two options offered under energy saving in the settings) changes have no effect.
trying to find out what this camera update actually does. My camera worked perfectly well but when I was on the Samsung Apps I noticed the camera firmware update which I downloaded. ow I have a little icon on my application folder and just wonder if this is a genuine app? and if so why is it not uploaded when I look for a software update on the phone or via Kies. Strange thats it is in the Samsung Apps?Can I remove this app by uninstalling or has it been flashed to the ROM?When I loaded it it took 4 mins and I had to reboot the phone when I did this it cam
During the last six months of so the problems with the hires camera in my SGS2 have turned from being just really annoying to fatal. Earlier, my camera or the firmware/software had poor abilities to focus the picture correctly giving blurry and random results. Later on, the saving or processing of the photos right after shooting were stopped by crashing of the samsung Camera software. This happened by camera app giving error message and then shutting down itself. Finally, after the firmware update (I9100XWLPG) about a week ago the camera has totally stopped working. The application shows no live picture and crashes after 10-15 sec. I cannot access the settings and the only thing the application does is that it turns the icons on screen along with the rotation of the phone.
my iphone4 camera screen is completely black when i turn the camera on. it just started today. up until last night it was working fine. if i switch the camera to reverse side towards me, it works fine as well. only when it's towards the object, the screen is totally black. what should i do?
After restarting my phone in morning, the screen turned black at the Apple logo and I have the feeling that either something is wrong with software i.e. corrupted or the entire OS crashed. Another important notice: Absolutely nothing works. You cannot even get it into DFU mode. It is not jailbroken.
My iPhone 4 is 4 months old and the rear camera hasnt been working, the flash didnt work for a while, but now its working .my camera will show a black screen with all the buttons and stuff at the top, cant use front camera either, do i need a new rear camera?
I just bought this phone a few days ago. I am very excited and start playing with the camera. after a few shots and a few mode change, the phone freeze and restart. then i open the camera app again it shows only black screen and a camera failed message
i tried using other camera app but it's no use. the phone has no warranty in my country so i could not have a replacement.
been to the samsung service center also but still no luck.
Recently I purchased an E75 off of Ebay. The problem is, whenever I try to utilize the main camera, all I see is blackness. The viewfinder does not seem to work at all. Scrolling through the camera toolbar takes a while and tooltips remain on the screen without fading away as they supposedly should. I have tried taking picture regardless of the issue, but I recieved an error message which says "Unexpected error has occurred. Restart your phone." or something similar. I get the same result in Video Mode.I have done hard resets and firmware updates to the latest firmware possible, but to no avail. What could it be? Would I need to take it to a Nokia Care Center?
when i open the main camera slide, there is black screen shown and cant view anything ... the after a while,this sentence appears: "an unexpected error occurs, please switch the device off and restart".. what happens to it? how to solve this problem~~ thanks in advanced...
On sunday my phone was water damaged in an accident at work and wouldnt switch on again. took the sim card, memory card and battery out and left in airing cupboard to dry out over night. monday morning it started up fine and seemed to be working normally, the only problem being that the battery life is now serverely reduced. used the camera to take a photo at 12.33pm on monday, camera was working fine. last night (wed) i downloaded an app called who is it led and also noticed another app had appeared which was a free torch light, which eminated light from the camera flash. i then went to use my camera, the screen comes up with the geotagging location and menu bar at the bottom but says cannot load camera due to another appliction being open. check and retry to open camera and same message again. then uninstall the who is it led and the free torch app and reboot. try to load camera and the menus come up but the screen is totally blank and the camera soft key on the touch screen wont work. tried rebooting, taken battery out and sim card again several times but still no joy.
I bought samsung galaxy s5 and everything was alright but yesterday i saw the black spot in the center of camera it stays on the pic and videos. I hard reset my phone twice i have few scratches on lens glass but I don't think that's the problem why i see that grey, black circle in center its the same size and its in the same spot as focus on cam ?
I have a rather different issue with camera. I have a Curve 8310 (AT&T) and when I go into camera, everything works, but the screen is black. Just the part where the "picture" is supposed to be. I can see the zoom option and I can go to the options and everything. I notice a little symbol thats like an exclamation mark with comma sized lines all the way around it.
