    My camera quit working, at least I can't get any picture in the viewfinder. Seems to load, but just like the lens doesn't open up. Any thoughts??

    Yes, a couple of times. I'm assuming by reboot you mean powering down and then restarting.

    The situation you described has happened to me previously, where the pictures showed up in the gallery at a later date/time.

    Same thing happened to my Droid 1. Recommendations from many forums were to wipe the device back to factory defaults and see if that fixes it. The theory was that some other application might be affecting the cameras operations. I never bothered wiping it and lived without the camera for a few months until my contract expired and I was eligible to upgrade phones at a discounted price. I had my original Droid rooted, so it would have been a lot of work to get the phone back into a state I liked if I had to wipe it.

    Good luck,
