    Hi kazza! Welcome to the forum!!

    Sometimes when apps go funky like that, it is always good to try to force the apps to shut down. You can do this by hitting the home button twice to bring up your multi-task bar. This will show all the apps that you have visited. Long press the app in question until it jiggles than press the red circle with the negative sign. It will only quit the app and not delete. Than try to re-open the app and test out.

    If that doesn't work, restart the iPad by pressing the power switch down to power off.

    Third is to do a reset by holding the power switch and home button together until you see the apple logo. Hope that helps!

    Is it the front or back camera? Using a specific app? Like skype or face time? Or just taking picture? There has been other threads that mention camera issues. Perhaps you can do a search to see.

    It's both - shutter there but camera button grey not black - did get it black once and hit it but nothing happened with shutter - haven't tried skype but will later - will also check threads. Thanks Skimonkey.

    Good day to you, I faced this problem once when I brought the iPad to local Malaysia fun park a few months ago.

    I still remember that day I need to take a lot pictures for my daughter and her friends. But my iPad camera just couldn't worked well.

    As a result, I need to reset the iPad like Skimonkey suggested:
    1) Begin by pressing the hold and home buttons at the same time. The hold button is the one on the top right corner of the iPad. The home button is the round one at the bottom center of the iPad's front,

    2) Continue to hold these buttons until one of two things happen: either the screen will flash and go dark, or a red slider will appear at the top of the screen,

    3) If the slider appears, you can slide it to the right to turn off the iPad (or tap the cancel button if you change your mind),

    4) When the iPad's screen goes dark, the iPad is off,

    5) Restart the iPad by holding down the Hold button until the Apple icon appears. Let go of the buttons and the iPad reset will be complete.

    I have to try this a few times during that day, and it did work well then. Please try it.
