Exclamation camera broken

hi everyone
i got an n95-1 with v21 and my camera is broken!!!
it all happened when I was playing around with Marble Maze (accelerometer game) and heard beside the vibrations another sound.
Later I realised when I wanted to take a shot, that the camera app doesn't open (it turns to landscape mode but then kicks me back to the menu).
The camera itself actually isnt broken, because when using e.g. the barcode reader app the camera works... i suppose the accelerometer is broken because every app using it doesnt start up at all (the camera app uses it for autorotation of images). I've tried everything, hard reset, firmware update, nothing worked.
Please, I'm very desperate, this saturday I'm going for a week to italy and I need the camera! I don't know if a service center can do anything about the accelerometer as they have probably no idea what it is!

thanks in advance

That don't sound good.! Have you tried resettting the phone?

I took a nokia 6300 (quite a crap compared to n95) with me to italy and the camera was so crappy I didn't take any images with it. Now I'm back home and all of a sudden the camera of my n95 is working perfectly!!!
now tell me there is nothing like fate in this world... Technically it is not explainable as I did not do anything!
