    assuming you are using a Phantom 2, have you read the manual? have you connected it to your computer and enabled the gimbal?

    Sometimes (particularly after a "firm landing") the camera servo/gearing can stick. Try moving it in the upward direction by hand, just a small amount and see if that releases it. Alternatively on one of the two "ears" sticking up from the camera body you'll see a white rubber grommet sealing the hole where the servo attachment screw is. Open that up and see if the screw has worked its way loose.

    EDIT: Oh and next time you need help either post in the Vision forum or the Help forum - the News forum here isn't as busy as those are and you'll get help more quickly. :)
