Camera & Camcorder won't open
Happy2bmeagain
Hope someone has a suggestion! Tried to take a picture yesterday & when I pressed the camera button it went directly back to the home screen. Same thing happens when I press the camcorder button. Thanks!

Heres a unique fix that has worked for a number of users, open your clock settings and disable auto update and change the date to 08-05-2011 and then open camera (It will close) but open it one more time and see if the camera works?

Go into Settings-Applications-Manage Applications, hit the all tab and scroll down to and open Camera then choose clear data.

The same thing happened to me but I got an error stating my gallery has unfortunately stopped working.  When I looked at the report it said it had crashed.  I tried your solution but when scrolling through camera was not listed within the Applications.  I even tried the other solution by changing the date back to 08/05/2011, but nothing worked.
