    Default [Camera] glitches, sometimes it changes to red

    I'm having problems with my iPhone camera from time to time the screen gets red and I get this type of photos
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/14406164@N02/1809177910/

    It's weird sometimes the photos look alright, but again sometimes the screen get's red and I get those ugly red photos (the screen gets red only in the camera).

    My phone is unlocked (anySim 1.1.1) I already tried restoring and I still get the same problem.

    So probably I can restore it and send it to warranty, but I don't have an AT&T activated sim so I probably won't be able to ask for warranty?

    Any suggestions, maybe somebody knows how to fix this??

    heh, funny story for you on this subject. I got my iphone the 2nd day they came out, and my iphone had a defected camera which would take what looked like rainbow pictures much like yours. it would do this every 9 out of 10 times that i opened the camera, and became very frustrated! so when i was down south at a local apple store in a mall, i walked in and i went to show one of the guys who worked there, but when i showed him, my luck, it was working just fine, no defect in my camera. this was over 5 months ago, and i have still to this day never had a problem with my camera since i walked out of the apple stores doors crazy stuff i tell u.

    Looks like the solarize effect on SE phones

    Like said, i think you have a faulty camera. Any chance you can "virginize" your iPhone and send it back to apple?

    Guys,

    I had the same problem with my iPhone a couple of months after the unlock. sometimes blue, sometimes red, sometimes like a TV with no signal

    So I restored, locked back and unlocked again upgrade, downgrade etc and no fix.

    So I opened the phone disconnected and connected back the camera cable and thatís it worked like a charm no problems since that.

    I followed this guide to open the iPhone:

    My camera is really dead. I tried the last thing here: Virginizer. It did not work.

    I keep getting the error: There is not enough room to take additional pictures.

    I am about to open up my Iphone, but will it void the apple warranty ????

    if you dont make any major scratch they will not know you opened it, however it's very hard to open the iphone let me tell you it will take you some time and you will have to do it very carefully so that you dont leve any marks on it.

    Hey Saoj,

    This may sound really silly, but doesn't this error message sound like the memory might be full. I guess if you virginized it, then you cleaned the memory, so I guess it's not that. It was just a thought; weird error message.

    good luck.

    ok. This is interesting. My friend showed me his digital camera, not an iphone mind you, but a canon I think, and it was doing the same thing. it must be hardware. maybe the camera isn't installed correctly. if you already opened, the phone, try removing the camera and reinstalling it. I think it just pops out right? if you haven't opened it and can take advantage of the warranty then do it!
