I have been working with Raspberry Pi + PiNoir Camera for 5 months now. Everything was working fine till I tried to attach my pi-camera to my room's ceiling. To stick the camera to the ceiling I used a tape on the back side of camera's Flex Cable. Also I placed the camera on an aluminium surface. Now I get this error when I use my cam

mmal: mmal_vc_component_create: failed to create component 
vc.ril.camera'(1:EN OMEM) mmal: mmal_component_create_core: could not 
create component 'vc.ril.camera' (1) mmal: Failed to create camera 
component mmal: main: Failed to create camera component mmal: Camera is not detected

I read on raspberryforum that above error means that my camera is dead. If yes why did it happen? Can I do anything to rectify this error. What important cautions should we take while using camera?
