The Internet Patrol - Patrolling the Internet for You

If you suddenly have random stripes going up and down or across on your Android camera (the camera on your Android phone), you are not alone. The colored stripes (in our case green and pink stripes) across the camera are a known issue that occurs suddenly on the camera of some Android phones – most particularly HTC phones, such as the Sensation and the MyTouch 4G Slide.

Here’s what these stripes on the Android camera look like – again, in our case they were green and pink stripes on our Android camera:

Not only do these stripes show up in the camera application, but they also appear on the pictures taken with the affected Android camera! Fortunately, not only is the striped camera a known issue, but it is easily fixed.

Believe it or not, all you have to do is take your battery out of your phone, let it set for a few minutes, and then put it back in.

It is said that you will only have to do it once, and then it will be fixed for good. We can’t guarantee that, but so far the people with whom we have spoken have said that the problem has not come back, and that has been our experience as well.

According to one source, HTC not only is aware of this issue, but is openly requesting reports of it. We have a note in to HTC to confirm this, but in the meantime, here is the phone number for HTC in case you want to report it: 866-449-8358
