Re: Camera problem Nokia 6500 slide

Any settings wont fix your problem..Better try to do a soft reset and if it doesnt work do a hard reset..

Re: Camera problem Nokia 6500 slide

What do you mean do a hard reset. I tried restore factory settings and I tried reinstalling the software from Nokia site. Is there anything else that I can do?

Johan:

No comfort to you, I know, but I've just begun having the same problem on my 8101.

I select camera in the menu and get the message Operation Failed, then it changes to Camera on Standby. I've tried soft and hard resets (if hard reset means removing the battery, letting it rest for half an hour and then reinstalling the battery and rebooting), without success.

Re: Camera problem Nokia 6500 slide

Yeah my camera started playing up two weeks ago on my 6500 slide. Came up with camera on standby now and again (as if battery was low) now I cant get the camera to work at all, constantly on standby.
I`ve just replaced the earpiece as it was distorted and I could barely hear anyone, hope there is a fix for this. Dont really want to be shelling out a new camera for a phone that isnt very old.

Re: Camera problem Nokia 6500 slide

My Camera went on standby today. I rang Nokia support line and they helped me fix the problem.

All I had to do was turn the phone off, take the back cover off, remove the battery and the sim card. Wait approximately 20 seconds. Put the sim card and battery back in, put he cover on and turned the phone on. Test the camera. Camera now working.

Hope this helps

Cheers....

Re: Camera problem Nokia 6500 slide

Maybe you just need to tighten up the back panel cover and to refresh/restart the phone. At least it is working for you now.

and

Try updating your phone's firmware by clicking to this link below:

Make sure you meet the system requirements before proceeding and backup some of your important contents.

Good luck

I tried this a few times and it did not work for me. I also tried soft and hard rest as well without any luck. Is there any other way to fix this problem?? I tried updating the fireware as well, and nothing worked for me.

This is very frustrating!

Re: Camera problem Nokia 6500 slide

This just worked for me...fantastic, whilst camera on standby, dropped the phone from 30cm in the air on to carpet floor and then the camera came on. Just like that !   Try it, if it works for you too, post on here, there are thousands of people with this same problem

Re: Camera problem Nokia 6500 slide

Grumpy, well I am thinking to tell to Nokia if they can put this kind of invention on the user manual, if it is proven to work for many people, but I was surprised to which side of the phone did u drop it of course the momentum and Velocity is also needed, and was the slide open or closed while the Operation. According to your experience,would it be smart to drop it on the weekdays or weekends after the BEER. Let us know
