I am able to take photos with my tablet, but when I try to view them I get a blank screen with the message "no thumbnail". I never had this problem before. I can see older pictures with no problems but I can't save any pictures any more. Please help.

    Thumbnail means the little version of a photo that is used in gallery. – SarpSTA Nov 14 '15 at 3:18

This might be cause of low space in memory. This restricts your photo viewer app to make a thumb nail.

Thumb nail is a quick show sample of your original photo.


Yes! That's Right You are out of memory space.

  • Make some space, by deleting some files.
  • After that, "Settings" -> "Applications" -> "Manage applications". Then make sure you set the filter to see all applications. Find "Media Storage" in the list and then press "clear data". After that, you will need to wait a little bit for the database to regenerate, you may even have to reboot the phone to trigger the database generation.
