[Q] data line fail, camera fail please help me!
i've searched this site and the whole internet and i can't seem to find anyone who knows what's up with the camera. now, sometimes my camera works. but it takes a lot of time and switching between front and rear cameras. i've wiped my cache. cleared the the data from the camera. factory reset my phone. reinstalled the samsung firmware. rooted, unrooted, rerooted. drained my battery completely, charged without turning the phone on , i've even done the hokey pokey and i'm getting no where. does anyone know anything? now here's the kicker. i've got a sprint SPH-l720, but i'm on boost mobile. so i can't take it to the sprint store or the boost mobile store. so, do i hafta buy a new rear camera module? if so, can someone recommend a good place to purchase one for my phone with the tools needed to install it? ooh, also, when i put it into test mode *#0*# and test the "mega camera" it says data line fail, then camera fail. so that sounds like a software problem but i'm not really a genius when it comes to this stuff. if anyone can help me please. please... i'm sad with no camera. i take a lot of pictures. that's why i got this particular phone. what do i do? can i replace the camera data? can someone with a working rooted SPH-L720 copy their camera data in the system folder and send it to me to see if this migiht fix it. please? i'm grasping at straws here, i know. but you people are smart. i'm not so intelligent with these matters. i know a little, and i can follow instructions. help a poor guy out.
