I've got an incredible 2 where the camera won't work, the screen is just blank when the camera is opened and other applications that use the camera have the same problem. I've found the suggestion on these forums to try using safe mode, but I can't seem to actually get the phone in to safe mode. I push down on the volume button when the first "HTC" screen comes up, but the phone definitely isn't in safe mode. I've read the description of how to do it on this site - anybody want to help me out?
Same issue for me. I ended up holding down the down volume for about 2 minutes until the normal screen appeared. Then at the bottom of the screen did it show "safe mode". Safe mode did not help the black screen for the camera. I found out yesterday afternoon I have this issue. I think it is related to the most recent forced system upgrade. I did not use the camera until yesterday.

I have tried to solve the problem with safe mode with no luck. Then I
tried a hard reset of the phone, also with no change to the non operation
of the camera. Any more ideas on what I can try to fix the problem?
