Dead Screen on Calls / Camera Malfunction / WiFi issues
Saturday 24th of March 2012
Phone: Nexus OneAnroid Version: 2.3.6I recently started having issues with my Nexus One about a week ago. All was working fine for the past year and a half and then for no apparent reason the following has occurred:1. INCOMING / OUTGOING CALLSOn an incoming call, my screen goes completely blank. Power, volume and trackball buttons will not activate screen. On outgoing call, similar issue... especially annoying when calling voicemail and you can't enter your password!!! When i plug the charger in, screen activates.2. CAMERA NOT WORKINGWhen I attempt to use the camera, the screen goes blank, when I press the power button, I get a message that says "Activity Camera (in application Camera) is not responding"3. WiFi ISSUESJust noticed this today... a few of my apps (WhatsAp) are only working now when I turn on the WiFi when they previously worked when I was connected on the 3G network. If I don't turn on the WiFi these messages are not delivered. When I do turn on the WiFi I loose 3G connectivity.I've been doing a lot of reading - this post in partcular seems to detail the same
Screen blank forever and ever
Saturday 02nd of April 2011
Very very sorry guys, for my first post. my pad isn't APAD, finally i can know what type my pad "thin pad", thanks Google. yay! (PS: because my dad bought from china and brought it to me, so i didn't know the type pad was)reference: Wholesale EMS Freeship 9.7 Inch Epad: Google Android 2.2 OS+ CUP: RAM 11+ HD: 2GB + 1.3MP Camera + Support 3G + WIFI +more specs <--just scroll down the reference.this reference quite similar with my pad. (PS: when i thought through, it quite similar with EKEN m008s. Right?)The problem is, I let my pad's battery died, without charged.Usually when pad die, we can hook to turn it on by plug in adapter charged to pad, and then turn on (same with principle hand phone die).but different case to my pad, it cant turn on ( i hold 5 sec for power button), the screen doesn't show a green alien dance neither loading logo.I charged it with 5 hours, but it doesn't solve my problem.i try to probe though and peek an edge main button on pad.For details photo shown click hereps: sorry for bad resolution my hand phone cameraAdapter charging light on, its fine.
Camera Doesn't Work, Displays Blank Screen- Help!
Tuesday 26th of October 2010
Yesterday I was listening to Pandora and I wanted to snap a picture with my EVO, so I hit the 'Home' button and then opened the Camera app. After that the little camera icon showed in the middle of the screen for a second or two and disappeared. Next the screen was blank. I also tried the camcorder and the screen was also blank. I've done many resets/pulling the battery out and I still have no luck. Any ideas as to what is causing my camera to not work at all? The only way to exit out of the blank screen is to press the 'Home' button on the phone. Thanks for the help!UPDATE/EDIT: I uninstalled Pandora and now it works.UPDATE #2: It seems like it work once and now it doesn't work at all.

Evo 4G camera problem, blank or black screen at the start
Monday 16th of April 2012
When I start the app the camera symbol starts up but then goes to a blank or black screen. The only way out is to hit the home button. Who knows the fix. My phone is updated and has the pre-loaded apps only. Hard restarts and flashing does not seem to work. Any good fixes for this problem? I have hard reset and cleared cache. Anyone have a good fix or know the problem?
Phone Repeatedly Shuts off when in Camera mode. Help?
Sunday 10th of April 2011
Hello, Occasionally my Droid 2 will "fall asleep" in the middle of a task. Most commonly when I am using Facebook, or trying to take a picture. The screen will be on, then it will suddenly go blank. I have to hit the power button, unlock the screen, and a second later, it goes blank again. So I hit the power button, unlock the screen, then it goes blank again... and the process repeats a few times. It goes from "on" to "asleep" multiple times in a matter of seconds. Any idea why this is happening? It is not consistent, but happens at least once a day. It is MOST frustrating, especially when I'm trying to take a picture, or listen to a voicemail, and all of a sudden the screen goes blank and I'm locked out. Verizon store was no help. =(
Camera screen blank
Monday 18th of November 2013
Hi, my camera app (or any camera app for that matter) won't show what I'm shooting at but instead a blank screen. I can take a picture and it still works but it's a little hard to know what I'm shooting at. I tried instagram and tumblr and had the same problem. I've tried installing a camera rom from xda forums VR Stock AOSP Camera Build6 with no luck. I'm at a loss as to what to do here because I use my camera frequently and have run out of ideas. Someone please help me. My phone is an AT&T Samsung Galaxy SII which is rooted, if that helps. Thanks in advance.
Black Camera Screen!
Monday 19th of May 2014
Sorry if this isn't the right place to post this, it seemed the best fit.My Tmobile Galaxy s4 is unrooted.Whenever I open up the camera the screen is blank. The control icons for the camera load up but the camera itself is black. The phone performs very sluggishly or freezes and I have to tap the home button several times to pull it out of it. Sometimes, if by chance it seems, If I click the "flip camera" button to switch it to the front facing camera, the front facing camera will actually work, but is still somewhat sluggish. Flipping it back to the normal camera causes the black screen again.I ~believe~ the error first happened (not 100% on the timing) when I had a failed update to KitKat (must have dropped connection or something while installing). I then finished installing the update in hopes that would solve it. Nope.I then went back and started deleting recent apps and other camera apps to see if that fixed it. Nope.I then restarted the phone in safe mode to see if that fixed the camera... NOPE.I then factory reset the phone. When the phone first came back on the cam
Camera app not working
Sunday 27th of July 2014
Two Droid Maxx, pretty much the same complain. After 4.4.4 update camera was working fine and dandy for few days. After that I started getting error messages, "restart camera app" when ever I would launch the camera app. On launching there would be a BLANK screen with two NON-WORKING buttons on the bottom (one for swaping front-back camera and other for movie). Initially restarting the phone helped but now even that is not helping. After 3 days of camera not working, suddenly the camera worked for 20 minutes and replaced again with the BLANK screen. Anybody having similar problems? What should I do? I cleared the camera cache but havenot gone through full wipe. These are TWO droids having similar problems after the 4.4.4 update. No new app have been downloaded for last one month or so on both phones. Looking into running and cache apps. there is just the usual google and motorola stuff, facebook, some amazon and verizon stuff but nothing related to camera. These stuff have been running for a long time before the update unless something got added OTA with the last update.
