    I tried to use my camera yesterday and it came up then went to a blank screen, went back to the home screen, said camera was unable to initialize. My phone is not rooted and I was wondering if anyone else was having this problem or knew how to fix it.

    What you could try is applications>mange applications>and find camera and clear the data.

    Sometimes just rebooting the phone fixes these little quirks.

    When all else fails.... try to reboot.

    Volume down and power button until reboot (approx 10 seconds)

    Are you using any 3rd party camera apps?

    Would hate to think about factory reset or hardware issue...

    I would back up your data and do a factory reset. If that doesn't work, call Verizon. You might need a replacement.

    Sounds like the camera is fried/ Hopefully your phone is still under warranty or you have the protection plan.

    My phone is still under warranty and I will be requesting a replacement. I was hoping that I wouldn't have to but I do believe the camera is done for.
