    I went to use the camera and the screen was solid green. It didn't matter if I chose front or rear cameras - all green. Nothing I did fixed it until I turned the phone off and back on. Is there a bug there or did I hit a secret Nokia green screen setting or something? :)

    It's a bug. Mine has done the same thing. If you snap a picture when it's like that, it'll actually save a glitchy image that's *almost* artistic (I'm using one as my cover photo on both Facebook and Twitter)!

    Turn the phone off and back on to fix it. All the way off (press/hold power, swipe down), not just sleep (press power).

    This always happens for me after using the camera extensively, but I've noticed it especially after using either Photosynth or Panorama.

    oh easy, you must had the camera covered while had it active. If you leave it long enough it will screw up the light sensor.
