I picked up a couple of iPhones 4s last Friday, a white 8GB and a black 64GB. I was impressed at how easy it was to transfer all the data from my old phone to the new one via iTunes, the snappiness of response and the quality of the screen. I did notice a bizarre problem with the camera of the 64GB black phone however.
Inevitably I wanted to experiment with the much talked about camera. I tried to take some test pictures, but the camera wouldn’t fire, instead I saw a screen with vertical bands of purple colour. I tried all sorts of setting combination’s to find out what was happening. The Face-time camera worked fine, and the rear camera where the flash was turned off and when shooting HDR, but with the flash turned on, or “auto” set in a dark room, the LED light/flash came on, but the shutter doesn’t fire, and the purple bars appear.
I took it straight back and swapped it over for a new phone that is now working fine. Has anyone else had this problem?
