Just bought the iPhone 4S today in Canada. Brand new, all features work except the rear facing camera... it just gives me a black screen. Even in Facetime.

Anyone else encounter this issue? I am using iTunes to "Restore" it now to give that a whirl... I'll let you know how that goes.

I haven't had any luck with my rear facing camera either. I will try again today.

I used RESTORE from iTunes this morning. The rear facing camera turned ON ! It worked for about 15 seconds, then wen't black. I used restore a second time... black, no 15 seconds of glory.

Sounds to me like a software glitch, not a hardware glitch... ideas?

mine worked for 1 picture


I bought mine from Bell. They told me to go to the Apple Store, so I did. Apple gave me a brand new one - camera works great.

I recommend you do the same.

I found a thread on the Apple website of a bunch of people having the same dead back camera situation... it's a defect.
