    Try resetting the camera to see if it solves the problem. To do this, go into Settings, then swipe across to applications. Scroll down and tap on 'photos+camera'. At the bottom you'll see 'reset camera'. Tap this to reset your camera settings.
    yeah i did that multiple times and the problem still persists

    Want my user experience? Here's my crappy user experience.

    Nokia Black rendered my phone completely useless. Any attempts at accessing apps leads me to a loading page, which works to get your hopes up, only to be redirected to the home screen. The phone no longer shuts off, hanging at either the "goodbye" screen or the swiped down lock screen. Forget about doing anything but staring at those useless live tiles (that never really updated correctly in the first place). Soft resets don't change anything. Factory resets don't fix the problem either.

    At this point, I've transferred my SIM into a phone that works (ironically, a much, much older Nokia). Considering my options, which frankly, probably won't be including Windows Phone or Nokia.
    I have the exact same problem on my AT&T L920. Is there anyone with a solution for this? I also tried the new Nokia Recovery Tool but it didn't help either. :(

    Had my 920 for about a week, seeing signs of dust in the FFC. I'd have thought the newer 920s would have had this issue sorted, apparently not :(

    Black has rendered my Lumia 920 completely useless. After showing loading reverts back to home screen. On the bright side this is the best battery life I've had with this phone even though I haven't been able to turn it off and haven't been able to charge it in 8 days. Called Nokia they didn't know what I was talking about. Soft reset. Hard reset. Tried fix for bricked. No dice.

    Actually the Black update improved my lumia 920 battery life significantly
    especially standby time
    white balance in photos is better
    less yellowish

    Lumia black made my phone useless. All I can do is look at the home screen. Nothing seems to fix it.

    After Black update all HERE apps do not start - shut down on welcome screen. Nothing helps, including hard reset. After reinstall of Here Drive+ it starts but but writes that Maps library is currently unavailable and shuts down.

    Have no issues after Black. Battery life is better. My phone is usually on 2G, then switching to 3G/LTE/wifi when available. One thing about store, mine never seems to tell me about updates. After black, the store notification now appears. But still wont if I keep it on 2G...

    I have had a problem with the Nokia Lumia Black update. I had a Lumia 920 phone in which I installed the Nokia Lumia black update, as well as:

    • Microsoft Update 8.0.10501.127
    • Microsoft Update 8.0.10492.116
    • Microsoft Update 8.0.10517.150
    • Microsoft Update 8.0.10512.142

    After installing the update using my WiFi connection at home, I left my house and then my phone became possessed and managed to download my entire monthly 5GB of cellular data allowance in one day. It didn't stop there, it kept going past the 5GB mark and downloaded more and more data in multiple 127MB blocks. My service provider didn't admit blame as it was a Nokia and Microsoft update that caused it. Prior to the update I would only use on average 100MB of data per day.

    I think this is an odd one as my service provider knew nothing about it, they hadn't heard anything about it. I also asked several people I know that own Nokia Lumia phones and they all said that they didn't experience the problem of the massive downloads of data after installing the Nokia Lumia Black update.

    I have since upgraded to a brand new Nokia Lumia 1020 phone and don't use the Lumia 920 anymore.

    I have explained my problem in another thread(Lumia 820 forums) since someone else had it before, but it looks like it is a general problem. Help appreciated.

    I didn't have Data Sense on the Lumia 920, think the provider blocked it. However I now have it on my new 1020.

    You should not have flashed the Indian ROM, the Indian phones lack LTE and might have crippled your radios (the AR 920 supports LTE). Try flashing to the ATT Dev ROM or the EURO Dev ROM if it works

    I flashed my phone from AT&T stock yesterday after Nokia Black bricked it. It is currently operating on the unbranded French ROM.

    Another user whose phone was also rendered unusable by Nokia Black took their phone to the Microsoft Store, where they attempted to re-install stock OS and cure the problem. When they were unsuccessful, they replaced the phone.

    The nearest Microsoft store is an hour away from me. My question is, should I go over and see if they can help me out, or will I be turned down for flashing my phone? Does anyone have experience with this?
    Did you have any luck in solving this? I've run into the same problem. Did the French ROM solve it? I can live with that.

    I wish Nokia would just stop the post processing process altogether for the Nokia Camera app. Here are some samples I took after the Black update. You can see a slight loss of sharpness, clarity, and the green tint in all of the pictures. The earlier picture are the ones with the post processing and the latter are the ones saved before the processing. Wouldn't it be easier for them to just stop the process anyway?

    USA - Verizon - got black yesterday. Seemed to have quite a few dropped calls, more than before it seems.

    Indian is what i had when Amber was released and it was working fine, also, i don't care about LTE, we don't have LTE here. i don't wanna flash any dev ROM's, wanna flash some officially released Lumia Black ROM.

    Then flash the ATT stock ROM. Even if you don't care about LTE, flashing a ROM not meant for your radio will cripple your device.
