This issue is faced by almost everyone i guess.. it's motherboard issue.. i had given my Redmi Prime2 at shivajinagar's service center. They returned my phone after 55-60 days when it was guaranteed to be returned within 25-40 days. Even after changing the motherboard i faced the same issue at the center itself. Many people at the service center were also fed up with the bad service and mannerless people. Also it stays closed for all possible optional holidays plus for weekly updates. Agree each phone has it's drawbacks but at least provide a proper service so that people don't have to think 100 times before buying or suggesting others.

Hi Guys, I had this problem since 3 months from now. I tried pressing on the bottom portion of the rear camera, but it did not work for me.

Today morning I just unscrewed the rear panel and pressed on the connecting chip which is on the right side of the camera (When we face rear camera). Unscrewing may make your warranty void, but that is ok for as I don't have service centres near my place.

Anyway if you don't want to remove the rear panel, try pressing on the right side of the camera (Remove the rear cover which means you can see the battery and sim cards when you doing that. Pressing on the back cover will not do much help). It MAY work.

Thanks

This camera issue is well known issue and yes it is the issue with Motherboard.

Only option is to give it in service center, it will be fixed without charge if under warranty. if not then they will charge huge.

Service is horrible. i have given my phone two times. first time it took 2 months and then after 15 days only it started giving the same issue again. when i went back they said it is same motherboard issue, so i gave it again. This time it again took more then 2 months. So in 1 year warranty period my phone was in service station for 4 months.

When you give it to service center then dont think when will you get it back. We all should learn onething from this. Stop buying any MI Products. If they dont care about their customer then why should we support them by buying these phones with inbuilt problems.

I have another MI Redmi 2 Prime now that phone also started giving the same error. it is also still in warranty period, so i need to get ready to face the same cycle of going to Service center and waiting for more then 2 months for getting the phone back.

If you are having camera issue and your phone is not under warranty then i suggest go and buy some branded phone and throw this phone, as the repair charge will be approximately more the Rs.4500 (Phone actual cost is Rs. 6000)

Problem is a software issue and not hardware

You can check it by switching off your phone and press and hold volume up and power key simultaneously.

Under recovery key you can see a key and press it.

It will change your language to english.

After that on top you can see "PCBA Test" click on it and press "Down" and select 17th option,

That is "CAMERA BACK" (can also choose 18th option "CAMERA FRONT")

Tap on it and check whether the camera working or not. If the camera works ! The problem is with your software

else the problem is in hardware.

If the camera works properly on testing, flash your phone's software.

if its not working take it to a xiaomi service center.

I had this problem on my redmi 2 prime and in my case the camera passed the test

and i flashed my phone. After flashing camera is working perfectly

I think it is the mother board issue

My redmi 2 could not connect to the camera after I spot that I shake the phone when I switched on the camera app, the screen flash blue in less than 1 second.

I took it to Offical Xiaomi HK to fix it .

They just said that the motherboard was not functioning correctly.

They just replaced one for me.

But I think I will face the problem again…

(Sorry for my bad English…)

This forum really helped! Switch on the camera - keep pressing the rear lens - and try to take photos. I failed multiple times - at least 20 - before I could restore it to its normal function. When you keep the rear camera pressed, you will find the display flickering, or displaced. Don't worry, just work your thumb around the rear camera by lightly, but firmly pressing it.

Hope it works for you, just as it did for me.

Thank you!

Just wanna share, i have the same issue for about 2-3 months ago, my camera suddenly stop working when i woke up, and i had this problem about a week or two until i try something that came up in my mind:

1. When the battery ran out, let say (1/2% remaining), i purposely open the camera app, and let the phone off by itself. After the phone off, i charged it for about 15 min in off condition, then after i switched on it, the camera miraculously working again.

2. Not so long after the camera back to normal, it started to error again, at this time i realized something on my phone, that i thought this error camera happen when, i open the camera when my phone got so hot/heated up until 40degree up or cold, in very cold condition in my case, for example in a room with AC, then i tried the previous solution but not working for me, as i frustated by it, then i just reboot my phone while open the camera app, and yes it back to normal, and it works until now when error coming again.

So in my case, the solution is, when the camera error, let your phone cool down/back to normal temperature, then open camera app, hold power button and reboot/restart from it, it works for me 100%, i hope it also works for you guys :)

Sorry for my bad english and my long text

I had that problem in my redmi 2 prime I solved it today by opening the rear cover and case by unscrewing it and then I placed a folded paper on the processor below the camera. And I closed the rear case screwed it tight. Ha Ha now camera works perfectly but because the processor is always pressed hard I doubt it will break my phone. If you can take risk then keep paper inside.
