    I can't remember if I pulled the battery or if I just powered off and turned back on.

    I'm having the same issue with both the camcorder and the camera after updating to 2.2.

    They will work some random number of times for me, then for no apparent reason I'll go to use one, the screen flashes black like it was opening then kicks me back to the home screen. After that happens, neither the camera or camcorder opens at all until I reboot.

    It's really annoying, especially when it decides to happen at an opportune photo moment...

    I'm having the same issue. I can't use the camera or camcorder apps, they both just flash a black screen and exit back to the home screen. Rebooting doesn't help...

    Edit: I uninstalled my task killer app (Advanced Task Killer) and rebooted and now it works fine. Perhaps ATK was auto-killing the camera/camcorder services...

    It's got to be another app or a setting or something that you guys have in common that I don't have.

    I am also having the exact same problem. I've tried a battery pull, powering on and off, and the same thing happens: It works for a few times, and then decides not to open up anymore. It's a pain.

    I got mine to work correctly again by deleting the shortcuts I was using and going back to the launcher shortcuts, then I recreated the home screen shortcuts and it works again... strange, but I'll take it.
