Camera not working hardware or software?
I've recently just transferred my photos from iPhone 3G to PC. The next thing I know my camera isn't working no more.
Problem: Camera app runs fine but there's a black screen with greyed/blurred camera button.
I tried googling this problem and tried searching around forums but there was no solution. Anybody with any clues what's going on? and possible a DIY fix? Thanks...

if the button is greyed, i'd say its most likely a software issue.
restore and see if that helps

sounds like a software issue for sure. you may have to restore

thanks for all the replies, I've tried everything possible to be honest... Restoring it didn't work. Erasing the phone via settings>general>reset>erase all contents for settings and waited for 1 hour for the process, didn't work...
I don't really wanna bring the phone in they will replace another phone with higher baseband and I cannot then unlock with yellowsnow...

Did you ssh the photos out?

did you try to restore the iPhone with DFU Mode? Sometimes when you recover the iPhone, the software gets wiped but some issues remain. I had an issue that seemed like the Flex Cable symptoms, did a restore without DFU Mode and the problems persisted. Once I did DFU Mode, the phone was back to normal and has been working for 4 months now.
