How do I get the cameras to work again?

I have had this phone for 2 months and both cameras stopped working. I try opening the app and it instantly dies and goes back to the home screen. Also on snapchat the screen shows up black and will not show anything that the lens would be showing.

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hey Jacob, here are some things things that I recommend you try:

-Try to 'clear data' under 'camera' in app manager.

-If you're using Lastpass try and do a factory rest.

- If you are using the Lastpass option "Enable fill into apps" and turn it on in accessibility settings then the camera issue might be there. Maybe if you turn it off camera works fine.

-Let me know what happens.

-Hope this helped

Guys, this is the solution. It worked in my phone.

go to settings then to applications. See which application is using the camera then force stop or disable it. For my case, I forced stop the application called privacy guard and my camera worked perfectly henceforth.

When faced with this problem,

1. Review the last apps you downloaded (Settings>Apps>new downloads)

2. Review to see if it uses the camera for any reason

3. If yes, press the Force stop Bottom

4. If 3 above didn't work, you will have to uninstall the app (s)

I did the above and it turned out an app (Swifty) which I recently downloaded, was the cause of the problem.

I found an answer but I can't explain it just yet. I have a program that allows my home screen to rotate. Whenever I enable that program the camera does not work in portrait mode. Just get a black screen. However the camera does work in landscape mode. If I disable that rotate program the camera works in both portrait and landscape mode. Not sure what caused this to happen just yet. I thought I remember it working just fine at first. My guess is something got borked and it will take some cache clearing or something to resolve fully. As for now my work around is just to disable the screen rotation when I want to use the camera.

SUCCESS!!! first of all thank you for all the suggested solutions. What worked for me? Someone suggested that we should find the apps that use the camera and disable them and VIOLA!!!! that worked for me.

go to settings

then apps

click on each app and scroll to the bottom of each app (each one has to be done individually)

under permissions if the camera is listed you scroll back up and disable the app.

i did not disable messenger though

I VE GOT MY CAMERA BACK!

THANK AGAIN!!!!! HOORAY!
