Samsung Galaxy S8 Camera App problem

SOLVED
First Poster

On my phone, I am able to take photos fine within any app such as WhatsApp or Instagram. But when I open my standard Camera app, it is always stuck showing my existing photos and I am unable to close these to allow me to use it as a camera.

 

Has anyone come across this before and been able to resolve it?

 

Thanks

Hi @sievans2364

 

No I've not had that on my s8. 

 

As a first port of call try..

 

Settings > Apps > Camera > Storage > Clear Cache > Clear Data. 

 

Re Launch your Camera. 

 

If no joy then navigate back but choose Force stop.
