Yeah, probably if reflashing did not help, then only service center will.
Everyday we try to make Samsung Jet and JetDroid better!

Could someone upload their CE131_F2_0x57.bin and CE131_F2_0x57.bin from the /SystemFS/Driver/ folder?
I can post detailed info on how to do it.
It works for these people(On a wave phone):

Hi,
I've got similar problem with camera as LoafFace does.

It did work perfectly on S8000XXIG3 before I started to experiment with JetDroid. Then I noticed, that it didn't work in JD so I followed Carlos_Manuel advice and downgraded it to S8000XEII2. It didn't work eather.

The worst fact was, that it stopped working even when booted up to oryginal Samsung sw.

So what I did, I reinstalled S8000XXIG3 and it still doesn't work :(

I suspect, camera driver has been corrupt but I do not know how to fix it :(

Any help plese..

If the chip or something is broken then I don't know how to fix it or to replace it so it would be better to bring it into phone service..

The camera driver in Jét's FW isn't broken, because you have tried other firmwares but still the same thing...

All that I know.. but how could it happen, that camera broke JUST after installing JD? Maybe there is a bug in JD and more people suffer from this problem but cannot find any solution.
I have searched long time for the solution but to no avail. Problem seems to be known but solution doesn't.
"Go to the service" serves for nothing because I would pay more than this phone is worth nowadays. I just want to repair it myself and maybe spare some sleepless nights to the next fans who want to do the same.

My main concern is that I am not really sure when problem started. Facts are:
  1. camera worked day before I started to install JD
  2. after installation camera didn't work (inside JD)
  3. then I did magic move with service codes flashing from this thread (flashing didn't work)
  4. then I checked camera on oryginal fw and it didn't work as well
So.. there are two sources of problem possible
  1. JD itself (it is possible it changes camera chip settings, causing camera to die)
  2. magic service codes method from this thread (they never work except when camera asks for fw update; and when used freely, cause problems)
I do not take camera breaking by itself into consideration. It is nearly impossible "just the same day".

I believe, for the sake of JD it is important to answer that question.

As for now, after studying many forums I can only warn: DON'T TOUCH *#5239870*# CODE to flash your JET camera. It never cured any problem. On the contrary, it is suspected to crash camera.

I do not want to say, that the code did it. What I know is, it doesn't work and is suspected to cause problems.

I still hope to find a solution :)

Sorry but I'm not up to date with these posts...
JD? is it Jét's firmware S8000JD####.... or what?
If it's firmware then do full factory reset and flash another firmware.

If I remember I had camera issues on Jét when I flashed one firmware but it was easy to fix..
I don't remember actually what did I do to fix the camera. Maybe I did something on the secret settings menu and then I flashed another firmware.. :D

OK Carlos..

You are the lucky one who didn't suffer from camera problem. If you want to investigate, please ask uncle Google. It is FULL of stories like this.

Q: my camera doesn't work
A: use magic code
Q: codes don't work
A: I don't know.. they did in my case

.. doe's it sound like you?

"Surprisingly" they all (magic code procedures) look like copy&paste from one source..

I believe NOBODY knows how the secret codes work.. so please STOP promoting them if you don't know how to use them. You can hurt someone. Think about it next time.

PS
JD stands for JetDroid is it too hard to guess?

I can't really do nothing for helping you with the problem when I don't use my Jét anymore.. Be thankful if even someone tries to help you.
If you can't fix the camera then leave it like how it is.

Flash the original firmware to you Jét, which was on your Jét when you bought it!
Enable WiFi or 3G
*#5239870*#
*#7092463*# = Master Key
Internals > 3. test.. >

[6] Video:
[2] Camera Tuning [OFF]
[3.] Camera Firmware update (Do it and wait until it's finished.)
[4] Camera firmware check..
[5] Internal Camera Capture [OFF]
[6] testmode Camera FLASH [ON]
[7] CMC Tuning [OFF]

I believe NOBODY knows how the secret codes work.. so please STOP promoting them if you don't know how to use them. You can hurt someone. Think about it next time.

1. Secret codes are not for everyone. Use them if in the guides they show what you have to do with that, it's like Developer tools, it's for developers, it's for testing the features to get now does them work and to disable or enable things.

2. How can it hurt someone? someone who does something wrong hurts themselves.

3. JD can mean pretty much what.. like JB, JB can mean Justin bieber, Justin timberlake, James Brown, James Bond, Jelly Bean or whatever what.. So everyone doesn't understand what YOU mean when you use abbreviations!!
