Camera doesn't switch to rear camera

Have you ever figured it out yet? I'm troubleshooting a friends BLU Studio 7.0 II as well and am experiencing the same problem. In the camera app and anywhere involving the camera, I'm unable to switch to the rear facing camera. The little icon to switch camera's (which shows in the owners manual Audrey sent the link for) does NOT appear. They told me that at one point it WAS working properly and it clearly has the hardware of a rear camera. I tried backing everything up and factory resetting it and nothing. Please help!

I lost the ability to use my rear-facing camera one day when I dropped it that had been Maybe 4 months ago from August 2016, so when I dropped it this time in August 2016 I decided I wanted to see the battery when I took the whole back off and put it back on and noticed a little computer piece was broken off and out I took the back back off of it the phone, and snapped it back in and noticed that that piece was actually right behind where my rear facing camera was. I turned my phone back on and Wawa I have my rear facing camera again so to everyone who can not use a rear-facing camera I suggest you take the back off of your phone to where all the computer parts and see if there is a round black thing behind your rear facing camera if not it must have fallen out when you dropped and cracked it open

My problem isn't one like those you said but near ,, The back camera of my phone doesnt work usually and when it doesn't work the rear camera that is 2 MP zoom out in 5 MP (i think) but it;s more larger and way more clearer than it is when two of cameras works ... And when it fix the back camera has a special visual and the photos are like Oh my God , Is that my phone ?(really guys) ...but when the back camera fix the rear one turn like it used to do before and after some days the two cameras are really boring ... So i think that the rear camera improve his look&capture and way other things when the back camera doesn't work and the opposite ., but my rear camera hasn't showed a problem 'never'. So i want to join two cameras (the rear + the back to create a unique camera)-> ( the back one).. Does anyone can help me ?

Dropped my phone and now I'm also having issues switching to rear facing camera. On Snapchat it didn't even show the icon to switch anymore and sometimes it even said that Snapchat cannot connect to my camera and gave me the options to cancel.or exit. I uninstalled Snapchat and then reinstalled and now it allows me to use the front camera at least but still no icon for the rear. I'm bummed out but its my fault, I've dropped my phone a couple times and also accidentally put my phone down into a small puddle of water on the counter while doing dishes. If anyone wants to buy me a new phone from virgin mobile its just $40, I will recompensate you with something fun &sexy.. Hmu;)
