I have exactly the same problem. Reinstalling done but still 'operation failed' message when I push the camera button. Does anybody know the reason?

Have you fell your phone or entered by water?

 

If that is not the case, try to restore factory setting. Dial *#7370* after that try re- installing your FW, if still the problem is there. Go to your nearest Nokia Care Center.

To HELP others to the extent of my ability expecting NO EXCHANGE or RETURN.

Re: C3-01 camera not working please help.

I have the exact same problem as the threatstarter with my Nokia C3-01 and it is quite frustrating.

I tried to reinstal the software but that didn't solve the problem. The strange thing is that the camera sometimes works for a few seconds, sometimes without any problem and I can take pictures, and sometimes it works not at all and the error screen appears immediately.

 

Maybe someone has some ideas. 

 

Anyway I will go to NOKIA service, maybe they can do something...
