    Can someone please give some info on this.. This is my 3rd replacement treo 680 in 4 days and each NEW one I'm getting is giving me problems.. The latest one seems to be great until I tried to launch the camera.. Did 3 hard resets and still the same thing..

    THIS IS SO FRUSTRATING!!! You think the camera patch might work? Or is it ANOTHER "hardware" problem.. This sucks!!! HELP!!!!!

    It isnt very clear what the problem is? You tried to launch the camera function, but you dont have a camera, and something (not sure what) is still the same after 3 hard resets? Can you clarify?

    I believe the OP is saying that when he tries to launch the camera function, the message comes up saying "Unable To Launch Camera Because There Is No Camera In Device", which is obviously erroneous...since there is indeed a camera on the OP's device...I hope.

    That's a freebie. I usually charge a much higher per-hour fee for my exceptional translatory skills...

    Be aware that non-camera versions of 680 are out there and being used. It could very well be that the OP's device is "camera free".

    If he's certain that his device does indeed have a camera, I suggest that he perform a hard reset and test the function before he's restored any data to the Treo.

    I did experience this problem once but it went away by itself after I tried launching the camera for the fifth time, no resets done. Haven't had the problem since.

    True. But I am giving the OP benefit of the doubt...

    Yes, my treo has a camera.. I'm trying to launch the camera from applications and that's when I get the message..

    Off the subject... How can Palm know I've taken apart a phone?

    You've taken apart your phone? Why?

    There are usually a tamper-proof seal over one of the screws, or some vendors are using a tamper proof screw. That is one that looks like a normal screw, but leave evidence that it has been removed and reinserted.

    Called Palm for my camera problem.. Ruled it out as a hardware problem.. They said that the reason for getting the message is because there is a loose connection between the ribbon from the camera to the chip board of the phone.. It was said differently but that's all I could remember..

    Anyway, I called warranty exchange and the rep I talked to gave me an option to replace with a different phone.. My choices were the: HTC 8525...Blackberry Pearl...Samsung Blackjack...and Treo 750.. I took the Treo 750.. Don't know if I made a right choice or not but I guess I will soon see..

    at least now I know its not only me that had this problem. Happened to me once but since then its been ok. Can't remember what I did...probably a soft reset. Mind you, I don't use the camera much so I don't know the chances of it happening again.

    Um, you traded in for a completely different phone..

    And they told you it wasn't a hardware problem, but the ribbon cable was probably at fault. That's a hardware problem.

    Dunno, good luck.
