I've had my Samsung Galaxy S for a couple of weeks now, and the last time i took pictures with it was on 29th August. I tried the camera yesterday and got this message.

What happens is the camera app opens, and instantly displays this message and all you can do is click ok. When you do that, the app closes.
I tried many things, including trying to press other buttons quickly before the error message comes. I managed to switch to camcorder mode and even press the record button in that time, but all i got was video recording failed message.
I checked on the forums for people who had similar problems and here's a list of things i tried so far:
1- Uninstall Fring
2- Return to Factory Settings
3- Fully Recharge Phone
4- Take out battery, sim, external sd card, wait for 5 mins and restart
5- Take out external sd card altogether and restart
So far nothing has worked. I haven't dropped or hit the phone anywhere. It hasn't been in temperatures less than 10 degrees celcius or over 25.
I can't think of anything else to do really, other than calling up warranty line. The problem is i'm going on holiday soon and the only reason i wanted to get this phone before my previous contract ended was to be able to use the camera while on holiday and now all my plans have gone down the drain.
I even tried reinstalling fring and making a test call with it, and i can confirm my front facing camera is working fine. It's the one on the back that's not working.
I tried installing other applications as well which would use the phone's camera and every each of them force closed when i tried.
I can't send it off with warranty until i come back from holiday anyway, so maybe froyo would be rolled out by my provider by then... I wonder if that would fix things... But i thought returning to factory settings would have fixed it too, which it didn't...
