Desire camera not working and black screening
Desire camera not working and black screening (my solution)
I had the camera stop working on my Desire. It seems that it's a common fault.
It was an unrooted stock handset.
After resets/reboots/rooting and flashing new ROMS/other radios/other camera apps it turned out that the connector connecting the camera flexi cable to the main board was loose/disconnected.
I had no choice but to do this as the phone was out of warranty and had nothing to lose, but all is working fine now.
Hope this helps someone.
