Default Rear camera - green lines.

Anyone seeing this on the rear camera? I'm totally stock. I hear an audible click when I activate and deactivate the rear camera.

Same problem . Wpgibson's solution works for me but I don't know how much it will last working...

The front camera works perfectly. It is definitely a hardware issue because it did not work even after a full wipe but worked instatly squeezing the case.

Edit: Not working again. I guess i'll have to send it for repair. All the primes have so bad build quality? Will it break in another three months? What should be the best tablet in the market is the worst nightmare. GPS not working, dead pixel, low-range wifi, bluetooth and wifi don't work together and now broken camera. I've never dropped my prime from a height greater than 10cm hand it has broken camera, tough I can drop my phone (happened a lot of times), or even my laptop from a table (happened once) and they won't break.

Let me know what you do, if you RMA your prime, I'm curious as to how to go about that process.

Call Asus tech support. They will give you some specific things to try to get the camera working again. If it doesn't work they can give you a rma. Expect to be without your Prime for 30 days or more if you send it in for camera repair according to a friend of mine who shipped his off last month for the same problem.

+1 I shipped mine off on the 8th of this month, they recieved it on the 12th, and its still in WB5 Status ever since, I called yesterday and they told me that theres nothing they can do to escalate it as its within the 10-14 business day repair.

Just thought I would update this thread. I finally called Asus, got a RMA for the green screen issue, last night, for the rear camera. I'll update as the issue/repair progresses.
