I am having the same issue. Like others I also purchased my phone in May. The issue has been an ongoing problem for atleast the last 3 weeks, maybe a little longer now.
I have tried resetting the camera settings and it didn't work. I also tried doing a full factory reset. That didn't work either. What else can I do?
Hi, dont hesitate and do all these settings procedure, ill give you the solution.
Uninstall whatsapp application off your phone.
Then try your camera.
You can always reinstall whatsapp again.
This says the issue with the Camera is solved. That is not true. I'm still having an issue with the camera on my phone that I purchased in May and it looks like many other members are having the same issue. Can you please tell me how to get Samsung to issue a new phone because it's still under warranty? I've tried all of the troubleshooting steps, I've even factory reset the phone, and I've taken it to a Ubreakifix location and nothing has helped. At this point I need Samsung to step up and stand behind their Warranty and replace the darn phone.
I also kept getting a warning whenever I opened the camera saying "Warning camera failed." I was able to resolve it by first resetting app settings (settings, general management, reset, reset settings). After my phone turned back on, I restarted my phone in safe mode (opened the power off menu, tap and hold the power off icon on the screen until the option for safe mode appears, then click on safe mode) once the phone restarts in safe mode i was able to open the camera app. Hope this works out for other people as well. Good luck.
As of December 24th 2020 my camera started failing. It would only fail every so often before that nothing major but has progressed to not working at all. Yesterday the 28th It wouldn't work at all amenities today
1. I have cleared cache
2. Forced stopped
3. Clear data
4.Rebooted to cleared the partitions
5. Repaired apps
As I see this is an on going problem is samsung going to replace this phone as it's the holidays to begin with and I can't take pictures. And secondly if it's manufactured error am I still having to pay a 200 dollar replacement fee on something I have no control over.
I have been having this very same issue with my S20 Ultra 5G and also bought it in May. I took it to a UBREAKIFIX location and they said the camera was just unplugged so they fixed it and it worked for about 3 weeks, but now I'm having the issue all over again. Calling Samsung support was useless as they refused to issue a new phone under the Warrenty. They want me to ship the phone to a Samsung repair center which takes a week. I cannot be without a phone for a week. I've performed all the initial steps myself to resolve the issue from stopping the app and clearing the app cache, to clearing the Phone cache, to performing a Factory reset. Nothing works. And Samsung refuses to replace the phone under the Warranty. I was a HUGE Samsung Loyalist every since the Note 5, but this latest batch of phones (because we bought 4 of them and they all have had issues. Even had to replace 1 three days after we bought it) has been absolute junk.
