    Does anyone else get blank pictures in their camera gallery? I don't know if its when I use instagram to take a picture or what but its kind of annoying. Just curious if I'm alone

    A lot of my pictures recently (like 7 out of 10) have come up blank (with the film strip icon). I tried everything from looking at the pictures in my files folder to sending the pictures to myself via text (not possible) to viewing the pics through an app (ie. Instagram). Nothing has worked, not even restarting/rebooting/battery pulling the phone. I just ended up deleting the pictures, since it was frustrating me that I did not have the photos I took of me and my friends at a concert.

    This is definitely a big inconvenience, and I hope that Android pulls it together to fix this basic problem, or I can foresee them losing a lot of customers.

    I do get the problem sometimes when I try and go into my gallery and it wont load up any of the folders/albums...usually i just have to force close and re-open it.

    Unknown error in picture gallery

    I am having problems with the picures in the Gallery. I take a picture and the thumbnail that immediately shows up looks fine. But when I go to the Gallery to view it, I just get a black picture with a filmstrip on it. If I try and text or share it in any way, it comes up and tells me "Unknown Error".

    Help, I am on vacation and now can't use my phone to take any pictures!

    Thanks and have a great day!

    My camera quit working properly while I was in Canada....I did have a Canadian plan added to my phone at the time. Once I reached Alaska, it started working just fine again. Go figure.

    Android phone blank pictures are pocket snapshots

    I also get these. It started happening after an Android upgrade that changed the home screen so that swiping sideways on the home screen without logging in to the pinpad caused the camera app to start up ready to take a picture.

    So my theory is that motion of the phone in my pocket is waking it up, doing the swipe to start camera, then hitting the camera "take picture" touchscreen-button.

    It's happening a lot, and pictures range from black to dark fuzzy coloured things, like the inside of a pocket might look like. Anyway.... enough about that.

    Really annoying. How about a software fix in a new Android revision, Google?
