Why does my camera/camcorder application force close?

I have rooted G1 running the latest Cyanogen 4.2.3.1. Unfortunately, my camera/camcorder app force closes and refuses to open. I have wiped, reformated the SD, restored to stock G1 ROM, even went as far as trying another ROM thats not Cyanogen (*GASP*), but everytime it force closes. I am thinking it might be a hardware problem, but I'm not sure. Help!

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Are you running 1.5 or 1.6?

I'm running CyanogenMod 4.2.5 which is based off of Donut 1.6.

This intrigued me so I went into study mode. All I can say is I do not have an answer. The cam force closes even when phone is restored to T-mob stock configuration?

The cam does force close when the phone is restored to stock configuration. I have a feeling that its a hardware related issue at this point.

it sounds like it can't find the files in order to run

check and see if you accidentally moved or deleted some of the files

I'd assume then its a cyanogen bug, the latest ROM is not 100% compatible with 1.6, try a complete restore to the original rom and it should probably work.
