Which camera is bad? Or is it both?
I bought an iPod touch 4th Gen off of eBay that stated it had a non-functioning camera. I figured that I would test the cameras to determine which was bad. Here are my results. When entering the native camera app the shutter does not open and it does not give me an option to switch cameras. I installed "Fring" and performed test video call (to check the front camera). I hear my voice, but the video shows only blackness. Prior to doing both of these I reset the device through the settings menu (per an Apple forum post). Does anyone have a better way to determine what is wrong with this device? Other than the cameras it appears to work great! Thanks for any help!!
Edit **I just put the iPod into recovery mode and re installed the OS. Afterwards I did a Fring test call and saw myself in the little window. The image was distorted by lines and was off color. Then it went black, and has not come back since. The shutter still doesn't work on the main camera.
Is this a good question?
