Try these steps, one of them will work for you.

1) Pull out the battery for 30 seconds and replace.

2) Go to Options - Security Options - Security Wipe, and wipe the phone.

3) Restore the OS, Connect your computer to desktop manager and click update.

4) Get a new Blackberry Camera Replacement, but be careful; i tried it once and it was very difficult, so if your not sure how to replace the camera, i think the best idea would be to go to a professional technician.

+I think it's like a nokia camera and needs a special square shaped tool to pop the camera out..I'm sure there's a way round that though.
