1) update the latest firmware and see if you still have problem.
2) try to restart the phone and see if it is ok after that.
After restart, run the camera immediately (don't start other applications before that)

This is because of problem with mem card, just take out card and start your camera, after cam is on put the card back. I think it will work, at least for me it worked. I think video cam may not work, use still cam.

I almost had decided to go to nokia care tomorrow, but suddenly today evening it cliced in my head to search the problem statement on net, and i got ur solution which really clicked for me.
