iPad 3 camera suddenly stops working
I have a new iPad 3 and after 3 weeks the camera has stopped working. I had taken 1500 photos in that timespan.
I bought the iPad in Australia and am travelling in Europe. It went bust whist in Italy, with a TIM network sim card installed.
I have searched forums. No similar problem reported.
I have deleted photos from the 'photos' app in case it is an 'over storage' issue, although I don't se why this should affect things, seeing it's a 64gb iPad.
I can still post to FB and send via email the photos that I have already taken: I.e the photos already taken are still there and 'Photos' still functions.
When I tap 'camera', the screen is black/blank.
iPad 3 camera starts working again
Thanks for that, Gabriel 1, but this morning, on tapping camera, lo and behold! It functioned correctly and I have been snapping away happily all day. This is two days after it stopped working.
It wasn't possible to test your solution of testng the reverse camera as the whole camera app was not working - to get to the reverse camera, the whole camera itself had to activate/open.
the whole thing is a bit of a mystery.
