          Oh no!

          We don't want you to miss out on those important moments! Let's get it working.

          When did this start? Have you tried to power off, take out the battery and restart the phone? Are you still able to make calls and texts? I did some research and did see some other devices presenting the same problem. When did you get the device. All our new devices come with a one year warranty and can be replaced free of charge for this issue. Also, there isn't any damage to the device at all, correct?

            "Camera Start Error" persists after battery remove/reset.

            What now?

                  "Hi Michelle G:


                  This started about 6 months ago. I just never got around to looking into the issue.


                  • Yes, I have removed the battery and powered it back up.
                  • Yes, I am still able make calls and send texts.
                  • I don’t recall exactly when I purchased this phone, but it was at the same time that my wife (Rhonda) got hers.
                  • I take immaculate care of this phone. There is no damage whatsoever.


                  Any thoughts?

                    As you've found out, you can't reply to those e-mail messages.  To Direct Message Georgep_VZW, go to his post and hover over his forum member name (in blue).  You should get a pop-up showing his profile.  Click on the Follow button.  When he receives notification, he should do the same back to you, so you'll get a notification ... click Accept.  You then can Direct Message each other ... it's like e-mailing within the forum as opposed to posting.


                    Keep in mind that this is a customer-to-customer forum, so it may be a while before a Verizon rep responds; they usually allow time for customers to respond first.


                    Wish I could help you with your camera issue, but I'm clueless after all the steps you've already taken.  Good luck!

                      I think the OP was getting email notifications of new messages in this discussion. Of which a person could reply back with message that would post in the discussion on the community. However they were getting an email failure error. I could see an error happening if the discussion was locked, but it isn't locked.  It does appear that a previously emailed reply was posted in the discussion since the there is one that was modified by a moderator to remove "personal information". So at one time it did work.



                      To the OP, I don't know why you would have had an error when you responded. I will share this discussion will someone who might know who to contact and ask about such an error.

                        Oops!  Apparently I misread and/or misunderstood part of the OP's issue!  Thanks for catching that.
