Hey @Uday47 and @Conor123456.

 

You can try a camera test on your phone to see if there is an issue with the hardware or the software.

 

Let’s try this, go over to your dial pad and type in *#0*#, this will bring up a number of tests. Select Mega Cam. Align your phone and tap the ‘capture’ icon to take a photo. Verify that the flash works during this as well. Review the photo and let me know if the camera works fine here.

Thanks for letting me know, @Uday47.

 

I'd advise popping into a Service Location to have this looked at by an engineer.

You can find your nearest HERE, alternatively you can contact Samsung Support HERE to arrange for a Postal Inspection Repair.

Hello 

 

I recently bought a new Samsung S8 a week back. 2 days back my front camera focus is not working. The pictures i click from front camera is very blur. It does not focus on any object. 

 

Kindly help to resovle this issue.  A week into a new phone and the camera is not working.

Hello 

 

I did what u said the rear camera is working perfectly alright. I am having issues with the front camera. I did the Front CAM test and the focus is still out of place. My front camera picture or selfie is quite blur.

I have the same problem and this solution has made no difference. Do you have any other ideas?

Hi, I am facing the same problem with my S8's front facing camera. Tried that test and got a "AF Failure" message. Did you manage to solve this issue?

I have the same problem. I have been using my new phone for 2 days and yesterday it was working fine.
