Galaxy J5 Camera Fail

New Member

Had phone for a year with no problems. Last few days I sometimes get a message filling the screen when I open the Camera app 'Warning Camera Failed'. If I switch off/on or take the battery out and replace this sometimes seems to fix the issue but only for a while. Any ideas on how to fix this issue?

Do you have any pending updates for the Camera App ?


Can I suggest to try another Camera App just to see how that works. 


If it continues then I would try...


  • Clear the phones system cache. 
  • Back-Up and Factory Reset. 
  • Visit a Samsung Experience Store or Samsung Service Location for a diagnostic under the 24 Month Manufacturing Warranty.
