Sony Ericsson z520a camera button fix

Ok guys, I seem to have found a solution. But again tell me if it works on your phone too. The solution does not require beating the sh*t out of the button like many of us have been tempted to do

Anyway, here's the trick:

1. Flip open the phone, do whatever and then close it.
2. Now if you press and hold the camera button on the left, well pocket picture time!

1. Flip open the phone, do whatever and then close it.
2. WAIT until the front screen dims out.
3. Now press that stupid camera button just once and the front screen is going to turn on for a few seconds allowing you to check the time and date
4. WAIT for the front screen to dim out again
5. ET VOILA! if you press and hold the camera button again (or just press once), its NOT gonna go in picture mode but rather it will just turn on the front screen for date and time view and then dim out in 15 seconds.

HOWEVER: if you press the camera button again while the front screen is on, then you're back into the picture mode and it may take a picture. In that case you need to repeat the procedure starting from step 1.
