Nokia E66 Camera Turns Upside Down

I was suppose to blog about this yesterday but I got caught up with some commitments I had to take care of.

Anyhow.. What’s the first thing you do after unboxing your new phone?

Well as for me I put on my SIM, turn the phone on, and check the on board features if their all working fine.

Then I got to the Camera so I turned it on, for some reason it took so much time for the camera to load then it finally loaded (Definitely not normal from other S60 phone that I had).

WTF!!? Why is the camera upside down? Meaning everything I see on the E66 camera screen is upside down, I even tried turning the phone upside down and seems like its still upside down. So I didn’t panic and went through the settings to try to fix the upside down syndrome, hoping for a settings/options on the phone to fix this issue. After I went through every settings on the phone and fail to find the fix I came to the conclusion to Master Reset the phone..

FYI: You can do Master Reset by pressing *#7370# Password 12345

Warning: Doing Master Reset on your phone will erase all data you have saved on your phone, so I strongly suggest to make a backup of your phone data before doing this procedure.

So after I did the Master Reset I went back to the camera, again it took some time load (Weird) and when it finally loaded…

WTF!!? The camera is still upside down.. Why? Why? Why?

The first solution that came to my mind is RESEARCH!! That’s what we all should do..

So I created a thread on Howard Forums Community to see if this is happening to other E66 users as well. You can join our discussion by clicking here.

I found out, that this has been happening to most of the E66 users over at Howard Forums…

I have also read from few that they have contacted Nokia about this and they are fully aware of the issue, and in the process of putting out a F/W Update to fix this error.

Now for some reason the camera works fine (not upside down) when the phone is offline and when there is no service. So it has some conflict with the phone getting service and making the camera upside down.


So darn right this should be fix.. How can you missed an upside down camera? I don’t know what’s going on with Nokia’s R&D or Beta Team. But the way I see it, Its not looking good especially doing this kind of thing on your business enterprise phones.

Will keep you guys updated on how this plays out…
