So the other day my camera stopped working while taking pictures and wouldn't reopen. Now the camera still doesn't work and the flashlight doesn't either. When trying to open the camera it says it keeps stopping and the flashlight says it is being used by another app. I tried restarting the phone, clearing camera cache and data, clearing cache partition, starting in safe mode, and factory resetting. No luck. Does anyone have any ideas? You don't realize how much a camera is needed until you don't have one. PLEASE HELP!!
Does any camera app work? You said you did a factory data reset right?
if you said no to the first question and yes to the second question my guess is it's a hardware issue not software. You'll have to have a warranty exchange or fix done, pay for a fix, or buy a new phone
Yes I tried the safe mode as said above, no luck. I tried downloading another camera and though it actually comes up ready to take a pic, the cameras themself are not working so there is nothing on the screen. I was hoping it was maybe a software problem since the flashlight wasn't working either.
I have The same problem. I try everything - factory settings, updates and safe mode. Camera work with other apps but default app is keep crashing.
Tap and hold camera app shortcut on your home screen. Then when context menu appears, tap on App info. Tap Force stop, then go to storage and clear data
Have you tried wiping the cache partition on your device?
