I am having a strange issue with my Camera app. When I open the application, I received the following message:

Activity Camera (in application Camera) is not responding

after about 5 seconds. However, I am able to capture photos from Facebook using the Camera activity, and other photo apps like Camera 360 works properly as well.

I have Samsung Galaxy S2 (GT-I1900) from AT&T.


Thing I have tried:

  • Clear cache/data from Settings/Application/Manage Application/Camera
  • Remove SD card, which results in the error "Please insert an SD card before using the camera."
  • Restoring the Camera Apps from Titaniumn Backup from 2 weeks ago, when the Camera app was working.

Have you tried to clear data for the camera app? – Mr. Buster Apr 11 '12 at 18:43
