Did you do anything to the phone before it started acting up? Install a camera app or (yikes) drop it? Have you tried anything to resolve the issue like doing a factory reset?

Check out the how to thread for some great tips or use the search function so see if someone’s asked your question before.

I've been getting this problem intermittently as well. Very annoying since I normally like to take quick snapshots of funny stuff and then...CAMERA FAIL! Damn moment's over. Restarting the phone helps tho but man, what a hassle.

Anybody with tips?

Mine is doing a similar thing, self portrait camera works fine, as does video recording... I have tracked it down to the geotagging (gps) function, if you go into location and security and turn everything off that might help... It did with mine.  This is only a workaround though, because now my geotagging feature doesn't work.

I have had this same problem for a few days. Have had my Tmobile Samsung GalaxyS phone for about a month now. I noticed that it acts up when any GPS location is trying to find where you are taking the photo. I had my GPS set to cell tower local, it would show the GPS flashing in the corner when attempting to take a photo, when I disabled GPS setting it worked just fine. Prior to that I tried a hard and soft reset which fixed nothing, also, a factory reset did NOTHING it was just a pain in the ʌnl to get my phone back together and wham, it happened again. So far, so good on disabling the GPS
