    I just bought my ipad2 32G 3G a few days ago. I've upgraded the OS to 4.3.2 and I tried FaceTime today for the first time. Well FaceTime froze my image every time I tried it. And now my camera app won't work on it's own. I just get the closed shutter. FaceTime still opens the camera but nether the camera or photo booth app will work. I thought 4.3.2 was supposed to fix this issue. Anyone else having this issue or have any ideas/suggestions to fix it?

    Have you tried holding down the power button and the home button at the same time until you see the Apple Logo?

    Then let it do it's thing until it boots back up.

    See if that helps!

    Have you tried rebooting the iPad to see if it corrects the issue?

    Did you simply hold the power button and reboot or did you do as sweetpoison suggested, holding the power & home button at same time and reboot?

    Yes I've tried both power cycle then both buttons for 10 seconds until it rebooted. Both gave the same results.

    And I'm sure you opened the multi-tasking bar and closed the app this way aswell? If nothing else works you may have to restore in order get the native camera app working again.

    Well I tried to restore to a recent back-up and the native camera still doesn't work. If I do a factory default restore can then load my recent back up will I get everything back on the Ipad and hope the camera works? Or will my back up from 15 minutes ago not work if I default restore the Ipad?

    On the iPad go into:
    Settings
    General
    Reset
    Try "reset settings"
    If that don't work try "erase all content and settings" which will set back to factory default. Camera app should work then.
    You should be able to sync your apps/music back thru iTunes as normal.

    "Reset settings" brought the front facing camera back to life in photo booth only. When I switch to the rear camera it then freezes the front camera and I cant get it working again with out trying "reset settings" The camera app still had the closed shutter.

    I'm restoring the ipad to default.....

    Factory restore resulted in the same thing. Native camera and photo booth apps aren't working. I can use photo booth with front facing camera only, when I try to switch to the rear camera it just freezes the front facing camera everytime I pres the flip camera button. FaceTime still works fine the camera doesn't freeze....(when not on a call, don't want to test with anyone at 1AM)

    Anymore thoughts...??

    p.s. Thanks for all the help so far!! This is just frustrating...
