    Hello friend,
    There may be some software regarding issue to must have to rset your phone and then try again.

    Remember, by performing a reset, all your data- settings, messages, apps, etc would be deleted.
    So backup up anything important.

    Follow these steps:
    - Go to 'Settings'.
    - Privacy.
    - 'Factory Data Reset'.
    - Fill in your id and password and confirm.
    - You can choose whether to delete SD card data or not.

    After the process is complete, your device would return to its out-of-the-box state or to its factory settings.

    Regards!

    It is easy to solve your issue once you know about your phone.
    • Just scan for your phone, because some virus may attack your device.
    • You can also achieve by doing a factory reset or hard reset or phone reset on your phone.

    You can do hard reset by watching the following video:

    2. Then tap Settings, then go to the Privacy option.
    3. Tap Factory Data Reset option from the screen .
    4. Then tap Reset Phone option.
    5. Enter your password if any you given or required.
    6. Then tap Erase everything option to make sure and to complete the entire process of Factory data reset.

    Clearing the cache memory might solve the issue.To clear the memory you need to visit "Settings" first then hit to open.After that will find another option as "Applications",tap to open that & then move to "Manage Applications".Under that you have to open "ALL" option which you will find above.Once open then drag to "Camera app",open that & then tap below will see "Clear cache".Once you tap on that memory will be cleared & problem might be solved.If it doesn't solve the issue then better to go service centre there they will solve the issue.

    Re: why did my camera stops working all of a sudden ?

    The Problem in the mobile due to following reason:

    There Must be Some defect in the software or any other problem in the mobile.

    There must be Vrus/bug problem in the mobile.

    So you can flash the phone but it will delete all the datas of your mobile phone.

    So you first try to Master reset /reset the mobile phone.

    Go to the setting and tap on the reset and it will take some time and reset.

    After some time it will automatically turn on.

    Then open the application,if still it will not working then you can flash the mobile in any service center.

    Thank You

    Your camera stops working all of a sudden:-

    The reasons may be:-

    1.Your memory card is over loaded.

    2.you should delete your useless files/pictures to the optimum level.

    4.you can go for a scan to see the virus level.

    5.If it is okey and the problem still persist then it is hardware problem.

    6.Next you immediately contact with your mobile dealer to correct the problem.

    Thank you,
