    Having this issue too... does it flash to a black screen for a split second before it reverts back to the screen you started from?
    Doing a power and battery reset did not fix the problem. Do I need to get it replaced?

    Just figured it out. I had a corrupted picture in my camera gallery. Delete the image thumbnail and you're good to go.

    Tech support told me they had a bug in the camera and recorder on 2.2

    Unfortunetly you have to reboot intill this issue is resolved..

    you can either reboot it or just clear the cache on phone and that will fix it as well and you dont have to hard reset it

    My cache was at 0. Thats strange...
    By hitting clear data I'm assuming this will delete all my pics?

    Exactly what's happening to my camcorder. As soon as I hit record button, it just kicks me out to the screen the app is on. Power off and on brings the camcorder back to functional, but reoccurs after a while.

    As much as you do.

    This is rediculous. If it's a bug in the phone with 2.2, how come every single DX on the planet running 2.2 doesn't do it? 2.2 just selects various random phones to plague with 'bugs'?

    Becasue every phone is different. Just like recalls on cars, If a few cars are having the same issue then they recall it even though every car isn't having that same issue.

    clear the phone's cache by turning phone off > hold the home button and the Power button at the same time until the triangle pops up > then press the search button > then clear cache> then reboot system and try the camera. If that doesnt work then the 2.3.340 update will fix this issue on the DX

    Very much agreed. I just happen to own a Toyota that was recalled through the last years worth of fun and the news, blah blah blah. Just like Toyoata, even simple accusation of a problem by the customer equals guilty. People can go as far as faking the issue and still be right (not to say that is the case), I'm sure there are plenty of truly messed up DX's with all these horrible issues that 2.2 somehow caused. I'm sure this new update will fix all things....lol.:)

    Oh yea, I don't have this camera bug.
