The problem may be that the icon always showing is the same name as the drawable xml file. Rename your image icons, possibly by adding a prefix like ‘ic_’ to your image file or Android will always show the image that has the name of the drawable xml file instead of look into the xml file to see which image it should be showing for which state.

My camera application would only show a black screen and then eventually I received this error:

“Activity camera (in application Camera) is not responding”

I fixed this issue by taking off the battery cover and putting it back on. My camera started working again.
I also did these things first (but I think the only thing I needed to do was remove and put back the back cover):

Reset the phone:

Settings -> Privacy -> Factory Data Reset

Restart phone (turn off and turn back on).

These instructions are for connecting to your company’s wifi with the Nexus One (or other Android 2.1 device) without using a certificate:

From your home view, click the menu button and go to settings -> Wireless & networks  -> Wifi settings.

If you see the Wifi network you want to connect to click it and a whole host of options should appear. If you don’t see it but you know the Network SSID (basically the name of the network that you see when you’re connected) you can type it in. Some wifi networks don’t broadcast their SSID for security reasons.

For the first option, ask your network manager about encryption type, but you can check an existing wireless device that’s already configured and connected (such as your laptop) to see what it uses. More than likely it’s simply PEAP or whatever the default option the device is showing you for that field.

Ignore certificates.

identity is the username field.

Ignore “anonymous identity” field unless someone told you not to.

Enter in password.

Click connect.

That should be it. If you are on an active domain (that is you log into a Windows network via SERVERNAME\username – SERVERNAME is your domain) type it into the identity field: SERVERNAME\username if you tried using just your username and it did not work.
